Ok yesterday I had major pains with my laptop – stuttering audio.
Checked audio drivers.
Trawled the internet and came across a possible solution.
Turned out to be something else, IDE drives.
Deleted IDE drives in system.
I don’t know what caused the problem, and it’s not re-occured since but…
Anyway for those who need a definitive way of doing this, here it is:
(DISCLAIMER) – Please don’t blame me if things go wrong with your PC, I would consider myself a foolhardy kind of person who is prepared for the worst. This worked for me. Please read the rest before attempting – make sure you’re comfortable with what I’ve written.
XP only –
1. Goto Start –
2. Settings –
3. Control panel –
4. System – Double Click Icon
5. Hardware – Click on Tab
6. Device Manager – Click
Scroll through device drivers –
Look for IDE/ATAPI controllers –
Delete Primary IDE channels
PC should now ask to restart – once restarted it should reload drivers.
Test Sound – Hopefully it will solve the problem.
