Audio Crackles/Pops + Stutters (Especially when using the Internet or Photoshop)

Sep 23, 2023
My computer is being a pain. It stutters randomly for about 15-30 seconds sometimes. This happens at least twice an hour. This is especially relevant when I'm attempting to use the internet while I am also using Photoshop.

I recently had a brand new SSD installed into my PC as the bootable drive, however, my older SSD which came from a separate rig that has all of my graphic design stuff is in there as well. I'm mentioning this as some research I've done says this could be a driver problem, but I do not quite understand how the default drivers are giving me issues.


Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2tb (New SSD)


Nvidia GTX GeForce 1660 Super

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G

MSI MPG B550 Gaming Plus ATX AMD Motherboard

Team T-Force Vulcan Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200

OS: Windows 10
I have been running LatencyMon while a smaller stutter/pop episode occurred. Here's a screenshot of that: View:
. Let me know if there are any additional programs I could use to monitor that may be useful in helping solve this! Thank you so much
