    Default Windows audio glitches

    Getting fairly frequent audio glitches lately. Almost like a fraction of a second freeze. bzzz for lack of better description

    Event log seems fine.

    I don't think it's the audio driver either since HDMI output seems to do the same thing

    Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting that?

    Like a micro stutter?

    I assumed this was a Bluetooth issue at first then switch to Spotify from iTunes to compare and it doesnít happen there.

    But it could be the free Spotify at lower bitrate maybe.

    On iPhone directly I donít have it so still makes Windows the primary culprit.

    And people wonder why I despise Windows so much. Itís exactly this type of ***.

    No Bluetooth.

    Both the wired headset and HDMI out to TV are doing it.

    Ran a memtest but that seems fine too. Maybe need to run it overnight

    I have a discrete sound card, and every year it does that, simply time to clean out the case then everything works again.

    I had hassles after a Windoze update before I got the latest drivers from my manufacturer. The version was the same as what I had had prior to Windows Update which apparently broke it.
