Laptop Question XPS 9350 Zipper Sound Playing VST's Intermittent/Random

Recommended Posts

the motherboard is new - it was replaced by Dell 3 months ago. So I should go to the Dell site and try to find the chipset? My interface is 2019 -Yamaha's latest, I will see if there are drivers.

So, updated many things -chipset/bios/usb controllers/intel display driver/ethernet. Trying to download and install 1909 but its not happening. Seemed to download but nothing happening. We'll see. I'm at 1809 installed in May.

oops - almost a double post - was on 3 different devices typing at different times and desktop didn't show my latest post.

 

So gents, I did lots of upgrades. The lastest version (1909) I think it is, is sitting at 20% for some reason but the chipset/usb/graphics, thundrbolt, etc. all installed as far as I can see. Will give it a test run Friday with the wi fi off and use a usb mouse instead of bluetooth and see how she rolls. I very much appreciate all your time in getting this set up, especially since my time zone is a bit wacky (Tokyo). Best to you all.
Michael

For the chipset and other drivers, you can usually go directly to the motherboard's manufacturer's web site, go to the support page, and they often have a mechanism to auto-detect your system info and provide a list of current driver versions.

I would suggest you look through the motherboard user manual for more info on updating drivers - or look for that info on their support pages for that model motherboard,

Not for laptops. They often use customized drivers, so you should always get them from the OEM that built the machine (i.e. Dell). You're often stuck with older drivers on laptops. That is one of the negatives of this form factor.

And never install reference Intel drivers on a laptop... Ever.

This is bad advice. Do not follow.

you know guys, I know the basics. That’s why this sound was driving me crazy. I do have the power always on. Dell told one guy when I was looking for answers when my mobo blew that  maybe he burned it out by leaving it always on. What do you think of that? I would leave my laptop on just like I did my desktop and perhaps he’s right. Its a big engine in a tight container and maybe it didn’t like it.

 Anyway, I’m all up to date with even the 1909 update but have yet to put it through the paces. As mentioned before this isn’t my DAW. Its running great and has been for years. Its for using Omnisphere, NI, Ravenscroft live. So I’ll get around to it tomorrow and let you know how it rolls.

 

Thanks everyone.
