If you're having issues with pops and clicks, microstutters while listening or watching something, you might be suffering from a latency problem. The solution is to download the generic network drivers for your board, not from the motherboard manufacturer but instead the maker of that specific component, such as Intel if they make the drivers for your Ethernet/Wi-fi port or your SATA ports. Update/Repair/Reinstall all of your Visual C++ software as well. Make sure to remove all GPU software and drivers first.
Usually, it may involve Network Controller, SATA Controller, Chipset, USB, and GPU drivers/software that are outdated or incorrectly installed. Generic drivers listed below.
