Latest Nvidia Driver and Popping Sounds

Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed popping sounds with MSFS on the latest Nvidia drivers? I know that when installing drivers it also installs some sound drivers too. Never had this popping sound with the drivers prior to this new build. 

Thanks

You can chose to not have it install not the Nvidia sound drivers. I've never installed them. I'm not noticing any unusual sounds. You can also uninstall the sound drivers to trouble shoot and make sure MSFS is using you default sound drivers.

I have accidently installed those appalling sound drivers in the past and spent the next 24 hours repairing my PC. I use a very expensive UAD soundcard for my work and Nvidia rudely removed the drivers without asking and replaced them with their 90's style "soundblaster" rubbish.

Don't touch em they're evil 😄

I have also been plagued by crackling sound. In my case it is/was accompanied by a high rate of stutters when turning my head quickly. (TIR) This would start after 2 hours flying, on the dot!

On the face of it nvidia sound shouldn't be involved at all because they are not the default sounds, Realtek is.

Anyway, I uninstalled the nvidia sound drivers after doing a CLEAN install of 517.48 graphics drivers. (Not the Studio ones)

This is in DX12. A venerable 6700K. and a 1070 Strix (8gig memory)

Not a crackle or a pop but the view is Crispy

This isn't a definitive cure but maybe something to explore.
