Hey everyone,

I recently bought a new computer, and everything works great, except, I've run into a bit of an annoyance recently.

The annoyance is when it comes to listening to music and surfing the internet at the same time. When I listen to music, and while a web page loads it will distort the music terribly and slow it down, like the computer is really struggling to do the two things at once. The computer shouldn't have any trouble doing this. It's a brand new Acer with windows 10, 12 GB of RAM, and a 3.2 GHz Quad Core processor.

Does anyone know why this is happening, and more importantly how to fix it? its extremely annoying!

Have you updated your audio drivers? Have you updated your browser?

Thanks for the suggestions.

I have my audio coming through my HDMI port from my video card. Woud it be my video card that needs to be updated or my audio drivers?

Since it's going through HDMI I'd guess it's tied to the graphics card driver, but I'm not 100% on that. Do you have a an actual GPU or is it integrated?

Regardless I'd try both.
