Hy, i've updated my chipset drivers a couple of days ago and ever since i've been experiencing sound stuttering whenever the cpu is high (or memory is low, i can't really quite tell). I tried to reinstall windows (clen install after formatting C) but the stuttering persisted. I'm guessing there is a problem with the hardware that started after updating or some changes in the bios but i can't really tell.
Also, i've never experienced update dp35dpstuttering ever before, neither on this computer nor an older computer that i had. And after updating the chipset drivers i also noticed that my fps dropped dramatically in war thunder (from ~60 to ~40) and it still persisted after reinstalling windows even though my video drivers are the same and the settings in the game are the same.
My specs are:
intel core2quad 2,4 ghz
intel dp35dp motherboard
nvidia 250gts 512 mb
4 gb ddr2
windows 7 64 bit
We would like to inform you this motherboard has been discontinued but here are our recommendations for this issue:
- Proceed to test the motherboard on a minimal configuration out of the chassis in order to narrow down the problem (motherboard, processor, video card, power supply)
- Test the system without memory looking for beep codes.
- Remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery# datetime http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery# datetime
-Include 1 memory stick and try to access the BIOS screen pressing the F2 key.
While you are performing this troubleshooting, please check if you are still hearing the sound.
Have you monitored CPU temperatures?
Thermal throttling might cause such apparent "increase" in CPU load and no doubt also cause stuttering.
For example failing CPU heatsink fan (as your PC is quite old) or some other cooling problem could easily cause that.

Well, the temperatures are fine, around 60, and i would assume they were the same before.
Also, i can't really tell which part is broken because i have stuttering when my cpu is high, when gpu is high, hard disk, i mean, there's no one piece that's causing the problem. Also the stuttering started only after i updated the chipset drivers so i'm guessing it's the chipset. I haven't tried resetting the cmos but i will do that in the couple of days and see if it helps.
Have you tried to do a system restore to an earlier point in time? I found some information on this link http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/system-restore http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/system-restore
Could you please let me know which was the previous Graphics version installed on the system and which version you currently have?
I couldn't do a system restore (scumbag intel drivers didn't create a checkpoint before installing the drivers) and my old graphics card driver, which is also the current gpu driver is nvidia 296.
