Weird audio stutter

Hi forum,

I have this weird audio stutter starting only recently. So the description of this problem:

  1. It happens when I listen to the music on my local disk, or stream or even when I watch videos (youtube etc.)
  2. It happens randomly. Many times my laptop is idle with music playing only, and it can start this very short stutter suddenly (0.5 sec). The interval between two occurrences ranges from 1 minute to 20 minutes.
  3. It’s always very short, like 0.5 sec at most.
  4. It’s so frequent that it’s getting really annoying now.

Thank you !
