I'm sorry if this landed on the wrong stack, I'm not entirely sure if this or serverfault would be more suitable.
I have a very strange problem, when I install any iRST driver newest or older ones my DPC Latency goes through the roof and as a result all my audio is crackling and popping, whenever some sound is playing.
- Windows 7 64-bit SP1
- P67 Extreme4
- Vertex 3 120GB
- Asus GTX 570 DIRECTCU II
- Corsair 750W AXEU
I've done a complete reinstall of windows and tested with only the iRST drivers installed (10.1.0.1008)
My second (resulting) problem is, that without the iRST drivers my boot takes about 9mins and shutdown takes a few mins too.
With the iRST I have a normal 45sec boot up.
Edit: I should mention that the whole thing is brand new
*Edit2: * I've noticed some problem with my USB ports too. Not sure if it is related. It takes really long times for windows to load my USB devices, be it mouse or keyboard or HDD. In BIOS the jeyboard and mouse are recognised instantly. I've ran speed test on my USB HDD's and it reports ~33Mb/s so the ports shouldn't be malfunctioning.
