Make sure you download the latest Realtek Sound Driver at official Realtek site.

Check if you need to download update your computer system via Windows Update.

I know this is an old post but I followed the instructions on the linked page and the sound stutter dissapeared on my ASUS EEEBox with a realtek sound device. I had noticed that my HDD was slower than normal but didn't really connect that to my sound problem.


Thanks for the info!

I keep thinking the same thing every time I check my generic Yahoo account I use to sign up to forums with.

I am happy to see that the pains taken by myself and others keep paying off.

A couple of tips I can pass on as an ever growing PC repair tech:

1. Always use "Google Tech Support"... i.e. search your problem. Chances are someone somewhere already had the same issue, found a fix, and was gracious enough to post about it someplace.

2. Invest in a 4 or 8 GB keyring USB drive, and keep a text file with the URL to fixes you have found or steps taken to perform a specific fix.. This has been invaluable when I go to a customer's location to find an issue I know I have seen and fixed 6 months ago, but for the life of me can't remember how I did it. This stuttering audio fix is one of my entries.

Please, help me!

This isnt working for me :(

Can you help me?

I used Google Chrome to download the file. When I opened the file, this is what appeared:

"This program will now reset the DMA status of all ATA drives with Windows drivers.

Windows will redetect the status after the next reboot, therefore this procedure should be harmless."

Then this appeared:

"No resettable ATA channels with Windows drivers found. Nothing changed."

And it doesnt do any change.


Maybe I did something wrong?

Please help, this problem is really annoying.
