Latency Problems During Audio Playback

Envy 360 15 bq150na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I’m not happy, in fact I’m well pissed off……….


I’ve been having a lot of trouble with latency issues. The laptop I’m using is more than capable of running Traktor Pro 3 but from the second I start playing tracks I’m getting popping and crackling noises.

I’ve worked with the guys at Native Instruments and followed all the tips and advice they have given me but nothing has worked. They suggested going to HP the manufacture of the laptop and see what they say. Again they have also been unable to find a fix for this issue.

 

Latency Mon is telling me that Driver files: Wdf01000.sys , ACPI.sys , dxgkrnl.sys , ntoskrl.sys are causing me the most problems. (See Photos)

Some of the stuff I have tried includes, All the optimisation tips from NI, Reinstalling windows 4 times now. Updating all the drivers in the machine, Updating the BIOS, Only having Traktor program on the machine nothing else. Disabling the network adapters, Disabling dynamic tick, Power optimisation, 


All of this has been going on now for about 2 months and I’ve had enough pissing about.


Can anyone offer any more advise before I pack up all this gear and sell it on for something else.

Latency Problems During Audio Playback

@Derekjd  Welcome to HP Community!

 

  • Please let me know when you connect the headphones, are you getting popping and crackling noises.
  • Without connecting the Traktor Pro 3, are you getting the same issue from the laptop?

Please perform the power drain and check.

 

Please remove all the peripherals connected to the computer, then shut down the computer if it is on and then press and hold the power button and F6 key for around 10 seconds.

 

Also, check for windows updates. If any windows update, please update and check.

Latency Problems During Audio Playback

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

I have already done what you have suggested before (the power drain). The system is also up to date with all windows updates and driver updates. Its difficult to tell if I’m getting the same distortion when using just headphones to listen to audio. I do here some pops and crackles but as the sound quality  via the headphone socket is so  different it’s difficult, but I do hear something.

Today I decided to run a “Latencymon” test with the laptop not playing any audio and just using it to do some browsing. Then when playing audio with the inbuilt system player (Groove Music) and then with the Traktor Dj controller plugged in and using the Traktor Pro 3 software.
The results are quite interesting. I have attached screenshots of the results below.

It appears the system is having Real Time Audio issues all the time regardless of what its doing.

 

The screenshots below are when the laptop is not playing any audio

Any more help yo can offer would be much appreciated as Native Instruments cant help me anymore and are now sugesting that I change my laptop for a Mac Book. which I'm not willing to do.

Thank you for the update.

 

It looks like a hardware issue, I recommend you contact HP phone support to check the available service options for the computer.

 

Here is how you can get in touch with phone support.

1)Click on this link - www.hp.com/contacthp/

2)Select the product type.

3)Enter the serial number of your device or select let HP detect your product option.

4)Select the country from the drop-down.

5)You should see the HP phone support number or Chat option listed.
