Intel Macs with Windows: Audio Stuttering Tip

28 09 2006

If you’ve installed Windows on your Intel based portable Mac, and have experienced strange ‘stuttering’ in the audio output when you resize windows, open applications or basically do anything at all involving a bit of CPU work, then you may be able to fix it with the following tip:

Open ‘Control Panel’ and double click on ‘Intel(R) GMA Driver for Mobile’ choose ‘Display Settings –> Power Settings’ and then uncheck ‘Intel(R) Display Power Saving Technology’. Click ‘Apply’ followed by ‘OK’ and that should be it.

This problem is apparently caused by the Intel GMA screen power save mode, so disabling this mode should resolve the problem.
