I have the same issue with Toshiba satelite AA665D-s6091 I expierience crackling sound when playing. peaks appeared when I had either the (cable and wireless) adaptors enabled, when I enable/disable the backlit keyboard and also when I enable/disable eco-mode.
A Windows and driver update fixed the cable adaptor issue.
I ran the commands in post #19:
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp
netsh int tcp set global dca=enabled
The wireless adaptor issue was fixed with these, however every time y enable/disable backlit keyboard or eco-mode on my laptop I still get this latency peaks around 18000 us and audio clicks.
I check latency with DPC latency checker V1.3.0
Thanks in advance for your help!
