    Hi,

    I recently installed win 7 x64. Cpu e7400. Realtek network card and onboard realtek audio.

    When I play music (winamp) and browse, sometimes the audio has a little hickup when a new page is downloaded in the browser.

    Google told me I could try to update the network driver but it is already the latest.

    I checked with the latency checker (esycon.de/eng/latency_check.shtml) and when browsing I indeed get a little yellow bar, meaning there is lag.

    Anybody has some tips please? I was thinking of maybe increasing priority to 'above normal' for the audio processes, but I'd rather ask around first.

    Thanks.

    Thank you!

    I came across the tip to delete the realtek audio drivers just as you suggested in that thread, using only the windows driver. This works for me! Pfff what a relief. (I'm music nuts).

    Hm, I have almost the latest nvidia drivers..
    I'll see how it goes for awhile, if it keeps bugging me I'll try the video drivers.

    (OP)
    When I found out win media player didn't have the problem I switched to winamp 5 (lite). I was still using 2.x :)
    Problems seem to be over...

    Edit: today had issues again. Changed output in winamp from the gapless plugin to normal directx output. Seems to be gone again. (winamp 5 seems to do gapless all by itself).
