I have a Lenovo W520 with 2nd gen i7, 8GB RAM, running Windows 7 64 bit, and foobar2000. The audio skips during network activity when using the Conexant audio driver, but it doesn't have this problem with the Microsoft High Definition Device driver. This is even when the buffer in foobar2000 is set to 1500 ms.

The problem with the Microsoft driver, is the volume is limited (maybe 5 dB lower) than the Conexant driver. This is unacceptable when driving the Sennheiser HD 600 headphones with ReplayGain enabled, especially during quite passages. Is it possible to bump up the volume of the system when using the Microsoft driver?

I have decided to send my laptop back to Lenovo, since it really should have worked out of the box, or at least with the latest drivers. I'll post again with my results. Thanks for all of the suggestions.

I've not had any problems, native audio or Logitech, with audio skipping during network traffic. I've used when I'm docked (cat5) or not (802.11n). That may be a hardware problem.


After sending the laptop back to Lenovo for repair three times, newegg sent me a new laptop. The replacement is the same model and does not have this problem.
