Clicks and pops in Cubase with a new laptop

Hi there! I just bought a new MSI laptop, with the main purpose for it to be used as a mobile recording studio, using cubase 12. I’ve been getting pops and clicks when I am using the asio (a UMC202HD), and messed around with every possible setting I can find to address this but no luck so far. The UMC202HD works perfectly with my desktop, and I’ve also tried a few other audio interfaces and am getting the same problem on the laptop with them as well. I have all the latest drivers for the interfaces. Any tips on what I can try to address the clicks? Oh, even when I’m just listening to normal music through the interface I still get the pops and clicks, so it doesn’t seem to be a cubase setting. Any help greatly appreciated!

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Try to increase the Buffer Size of your Audio Device, please.

Could you test your system by using LatencyMon utility, please?
