    So my ranger with the 1070 in it has always had a sound issue. I'm on my third motherboard, I have the a14+ modded bios and no matter what I try (drivers, reflashing bios, different bios, ect...) I can't get the sound to stop stuttering or clipping/skipping.. Its driving me nuts. I also have another ranger with a gtx 1060 and never run into this problem. Any Ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    Are you using the Realtek driver or the Nvidia driver?

    Have you ever use LatencyMon application to determine the route cause?

    I've tried everything power settings. bios flash, everything it listed.. I used ddu to uninstall audio drivers then reinstalled. maybe its this 4930mx es.. I'm about ready to throw it. I put this laptop on hold for a while when I was building a new desktop and I thought I may be able to get it but, nope.. :-( Never seen this, even built my daughter a ranger with 980m upgrade..

    Try buying a usb sound card, they can be had for 10 bucks.

    Before that though try leaving the nvidia sound driver uninstalled to see if its still slacking on the audio. If you arent using HDCP then you shouldnt need them iirc.

    Trouble handling realtime audio, buffer underruns one or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running apear to be executing for too long. One or more ISR routines running too long.
    Says it may be power related. I tried every power setting now No luck. It says to disable CPU throttling And check for bios updates. Even on the vanilla a16 bios same thing.
