Fix Sound Lag In Windows

Have any one experienced sound lag in Windows 7? I write and record music but Windows 7 has an irritating lag issue in the sound from the speakers or headphones. This makes it impossible to use as far as recording anything.

From research, it is understood that this is not the problem with sound-cards, this is A WINDOWS PROBLEM, not sound-cards or driver issues.

Possible Solutions:
  • Try to update the device drivers to the latest version which are compatible with Windows 7
  • If the issue persists, try reinstalling the sound card by the steps below:
  1. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "devmgmt.msc" and press Enter.
  2. Expand "Sound, video and game controllers", double-click on the entry of the sound card.
  3. Click the tab "Driver", click "Uninstall".
  4. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "appwiz.cpl" and press Enter.
  5. Remove the entries related to the display adapter.
Then, you may temporarily disable the anti-virus, then run Windows Update to install the audio driver.
