I've had my Acer TimelineX 5820T laptop for 2 weeks now. I started to notice few days after I had bought it, that strange disturbition was coming from my speakers randomly while I was playing music on it. It didn't matter if it was iTunes, spotify or any other flash videos on the web.
I've tried to google a lot and haven't come down to any conclusion.
The sound can be described like the computer is pausing for a few ms. like when the CPU is doing to many things at ones.
I started checking my task mananger CPU monitor and noticed that every time my CPU peaked, while I was playing music, from 0-3% up to like 5-10% the sound came.
The only thing I've done with the computer/soundcard was to download the most recent Realtek HD audio mananger drivers for my windows few days after i bought it, the 2.51 drivers....
Could it be that the new drivers are f****** everything up? Has anybody else experienced a simular problem?
My specs are.
Acer Aspire Timelinex 5820T
i3 Intel 350

Realtek HD audio
4gb RAM with W7 Home Premium 64bit
Well, I haven't experienced any lag until today... my computer froze for like 20 sec while playing a flash video on the internet.
I just noticed on the realtek site that they released a new driver(Realtek HD 2.52) TODAY... I've just finished installing it. I'm going to see how that works. For the last 10 minutes I haven't had any trouble with the sound.
