Re: Studio XPS 8100 Realtek ALC887 Integrated Audio - weird skipping/jittery sound
Thanks for the tip on MSE.
I've been keeping an eye on my DPC latency lately and noticed just today that disabling Microsoft Security Essentials real time security that my DPC latency remained low (not going into red terroritory) after it was running high and making my audio skip. After renenabling MSE realtime security again it remained low although I am expecting after a few days it will go back up.
I found some articles on this over at the MSE Microsoft forums: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/msestart/thread/0519ba5e-f3d8-4caa-a193-01fea178aa4f
