Re: T420 Audio Stuttering Issue

At this point I've pretty much given up on the idea of running Windows on my ThinkPad. Latency issues are preventing me from being able to do anything that involves audio and I've received a free HP-2000 with a 3rd gen Core i3 (virtually identical performance to the ThinkPad) off of a friend which t...

T420 Hackintosh Catalina Power Managment

Hello, I have a t420 (with nvidia graphics) that ive installed catalina on and I notice that i'm getting poor battery life. I have used dosdude1's catalina patcher, used this github repo for easy setup: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T420-Clover, and compared to linux i get about half battery life....

Re: T420 Audio Stuttering Issue

after trying to install an incorrect storage driver, it lists two of them available and i disabled the one that was available to disable, and it seeks storport.sys isn't causing so much issues (atleast, it does cause issue at first after waking from sleep or startup, and rarely, but seems to be reso...

Re: T420 Audio Stuttering Issue

storport.sys is Microsoft's storage driver. I think normally it is not used if you have a driver from the manufacturer (Intel in this case), but I am not certain if Intel's storage drivers for this generation support Win10. Here Win10 is not mentioned, but the driver may still work. Or there can be...

Re: T420 Audio Stuttering Issue

Try LatencyMon to check for excessive ISR/DPC latencies (the thing that typically causes audio stuttering). It may even point to the faulting driver: https://www.resplendence.com/latencymon ive downloaded and ran the software and ill attach a screenshot (somehow) and it seems to point to acpi.sys a...

Re: T420 Audio Stuttering Issue

Honestly, at this point i'm giving up for right now and I'm going to give 8.1 a try. As much as I dislike 8.1, it's getting security updates until 2023, and I'll probably be able to replace the start "menu" with something like OpenShell. It seems there are plenty of people having this issue, and tha...

Re: Random Speaker Noise

I've been having a similar if not exact same issue on my t420. I still cant figure it out. Anybody? Hi, I managed to come across a fix for this issue on my T440s. I must say first of all that it is not a guaranteed fix for all computers. I say so because it did not fix my other Thinkpads (T520, X22...

T420 Audio Stuttering Issue

I have noticed that my beloved T420 with Windows 10 has been having issues with audio stuttering. I have tried just about every solution on the internet and I CANNOT manage to fix it. It is a connexant audio chip if that's worth anything, and the issue has been happening since Windows 10 version 180...
