I was just wondering..

I installed the program "Equalizer APO", before I experienced problems...

Could this program maybe be a possible cause?

Coz I just noticed all media programs (itunes windows, Bee music player) after a while has the stutter problem

Seeing it's a system-wide application, it could cause issues.

A couple of ways to find out, that I can think of, would be...

1. Open task manager and see what's running and what is using resources when the stuttering happens (I think this has already been suggested - I haven't read back up the thread to double-check, though).

2. The program looks to be opensource software. If that's the case, it costs nothing to install/uninstall it...

Why not uninstall it run your system without it for a while.... then re-install it in a few days and see what happens.

Regards,
Noel

It's a system EQ, it says low CPU usage but non the less CPU usage, so I would uninstall it and try.

In the Task manager is the CPU usage fluctuating when it stutters ?

The sound sub-system of the O/S has the ability to detect connection / disconnection of audio devices (microphones, speakers etc). This 'might' have been enough to create an interrupt to the audio functionality to appear that it has been resolved (corrected itself).

The graph created in Process Explorer shows what used max CPU cycles and Memory during the monitored period. Perhaps this might help.

So you get stutter with the headphones but not internal speakers.
What if you run Line Out from the headphone jack to a set of speakers, do you get the stutter you get with the headphones ?
Does the RealTek HD Audio Manager pop up and ask what you have plugged in ?

Maybe we need to define ‘audio stutter’ better. Can you record a few seconds of the problem, so we can hear what you hear? Then put that audio file on Dropbox and post a link to it. One of us will surely recognize it.
