Hello!\n\nI don't know what happened but suddenly my laptop is experiencing latency issues. Everytime I play an audio from a video or file it stutters\/cracks and then videos lag as a result. I tried looking around and saw that I do have latency issues and there are driver issues from LatencyMon but I don't know how to go about it.\n\nResults and images below\n\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCONCLUSION\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nYour system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates. \nLatencyMon has been analyzing your system for 0:42:51 (h:mm:ss) on all processors.\n\n\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nSYSTEM INFORMATION\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nComputer name: LAPTOP-HLSGQ550\nOS version: Windows 10 , 10.0, build: 17134 (x64)\nHardware: 81BH, LENOVO, LNVNB161216\nCPU: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8250U CPU @ 1.60GHz\nLogical processors: 8\nProcessor groups: 1\nRAM: 12162 MB total\n\n\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU SPEED\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nReported CPU speed: 180 MHz\n\nNote: reported execution times may be calculated based on a fixed reported CPU speed.

This includes the scheduling and execution of a DPC routine, the signaling of an event and the waking up of a usermode thread from an idle wait state in response to that event.\n\nHighest measured interrupt to process latency (µs): 106940.719018\nAverage measured interrupt to process latency (µs): 25.925809\n\nHighest measured interrupt to DPC latency (µs): 106906.016845\nAverage measured interrupt to DPC latency (µs): 17.815368\n\n\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\n REPORTED ISRs\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nInterrupt service routines are routines installed by the OS and device drivers that execute in response to a hardware interrupt signal.\n\nHighest ISR routine execution time (µs): 373.664444\nDriver with highest ISR routine execution time: Wdf01000.sys - Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime, Microsoft Corporation\n\nHighest reported total ISR routine time (%): 0.004407\nDriver with highest ISR total time: HDAudBus.sys - High Definition Audio Bus Driver, Microsoft Corporation\n\nTotal time spent in ISRs (%) 0.006517\n\nISR count (execution time <250 µs): 116606\nISR count (execution time 250-500 µs): 0\nISR count (execution time 500-999 µs): 4\nISR count (execution time 1000-1999 µs): 0\nISR count (execution time 2000-3999 µs): 0\nISR count (execution time >=4000 µs): 0\n\n\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nREPORTED DPCs\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nDPC routines are part of the interrupt servicing dispatch mechanism and disable the possibility for a process to utilize the CPU while it is interrupted until the DPC has finished execution.\n\nHighest DPC routine execution time (µs): 112158.022778\nDriver with highest DPC routine execution time: iaStorA.sys - Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology driver - x64, Intel Corporation\n\nHighest reported total DPC routine time (%): 2.130173\nDriver with highest DPC total execution time: storport.sys - Microsoft Storage Port Driver, Microsoft Corporation\n\nTotal time spent in DPCs (%) 2.457427\n\nDPC count (execution time <250 µs): 5150951\nDPC count (execution time 250-500 µs): 0\nDPC count (execution time 500-999 µs): 484\nDPC count (execution time 1000-1999 µs): 5\nDPC count (execution time 2000-3999 µs): 4\nDPC count (execution time >=4000 µs): 0\n\n\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\n REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nHard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.\n\nNOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.\n\nProcess with highest pagefault count: sedlauncher.exe\n\nTotal number of hard pagefaults 24412\nHard pagefault count of hardest hit process: 16430\nNumber of processes hit: 61\n\n\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\n PER CPU DATA\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU 0 Interrupt cycle time (s): 771.115015\nCPU 0 ISR highest execution time (µs): 373.664444\nCPU 0 ISR total execution time (s): 1.279902\nCPU 0 ISR count: 111358\nCPU 0 DPC highest execution time (µs): 112158.022778\nCPU 0 DPC total execution time (s): 433.381378\nCPU 0 DPC count: 4793019\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU 1 Interrupt cycle time (s): 129.553434\nCPU 1 ISR highest execution time (µs): 114.4650\nCPU 1 ISR total execution time (s): 0.029162\nCPU 1 ISR count: 2395\nCPU 1 DPC highest execution time (µs): 106635.641667\nCPU 1 DPC total execution time (s): 0.638431\nCPU 1 DPC count: 11384\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU 2 Interrupt cycle time (s): 143.835341\nCPU 2 ISR highest execution time (µs): 188.729444\nCPU 2 ISR total execution time (s): 0.028650\nCPU 2 ISR count: 2581\nCPU 2 DPC highest execution time (µs): 106648.0350\nCPU 2 DPC total execution time (s): 16.583045\nCPU 2 DPC count: 84184\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU 3 Interrupt cycle time (s): 124.450648\nCPU 3 ISR highest execution time (µs): 178.530556\nCPU 3 ISR total execution time (s): 0.002924\nCPU 3 ISR count: 276\nCPU 3 DPC highest execution time (µs): 106773.373889\nCPU 3 DPC total execution time (s): 4.945705\nCPU 3 DPC count: 40137\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU 4 Interrupt cycle time (s): 187.691481\nCPU 4 ISR highest execution time (µs): 0.0\nCPU 4 ISR total execution time (s): 0.0\nCPU 4 ISR count: 0\nCPU 4 DPC highest execution time (µs): 107109.782778\nCPU 4 DPC total execution time (s): 48.646576\nCPU 4 DPC count: 203739\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU 5 Interrupt cycle time (s): 77.594192\nCPU 5 ISR highest execution time (µs): 0.0\nCPU 5 ISR total execution time (s): 0.0\nCPU 5 ISR count: 0\nCPU 5 DPC highest execution time (µs): 106326.750\nCPU 5 DPC total execution time (s): 0.193559\nCPU 5 DPC count: 4847\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU 6 Interrupt cycle time (s): 58.626809\nCPU 6 ISR highest execution time (µs): 0.0\nCPU 6 ISR total execution time (s): 0.0\nCPU 6 ISR count: 0\nCPU 6 DPC highest execution time (µs): 106190.840\nCPU 6 DPC total execution time (s): 0.982410\nCPU 6 DPC count: 12732\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\nCPU 7 Interrupt cycle time (s): 57.501617\nCPU 7 ISR highest execution time (µs): 0.0\nCPU 7 ISR total execution time (s): 0.0\nCPU 7 ISR count: 0\nCPU 7 DPC highest execution time (µs): 31904.098333\nCPU 7 DPC total execution time (s): 0.179815\nCPU 7 DPC count: 8338\n_________________________________________________________________________________________________________\n\n\n\nI'm not much familiar with these kinds of issues but I hope there is an easy fix where I don't have to back up my files or complete reboot.
