AMD fTPM causing random stuttering.

8 hours ago, -Senku- said:

You have to realize the tpm stutter can only happen once a month or may happen while you are afk there no way to be sure its fixed.

I use my computer almost every waking hour of the day... I know if it's stuttering or not. I had the fTPM issue. I now have a discrete TPM and no issue. Don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about.

So I tried everything I could think of to try and see if the Windows 11 dev or insider builds fixed it as was indicated back in November of that MS thread. Either these latest builds now for some reason don't include the fix from November or something else is going on.

Is there anyway to verify if it's in the new builds, does it have KB number or something? @gymleader

There probably is but I was going under the assumption that the latest builds would retain the code that fixed it. The build I have is KB5008353 which was released January 25th 2022. 2 months after it was supposedly fixed. I actually wonder if this even has anything to do with the stuttering but so far it's the only lead so worth pursuing. To see if it has some merit I had an idea.

 

Anyone that knows they have stuttering should have the below event id when fTPM is on. Anyone that doesn't have stuttering shouldn't have the event id.

 

If anybody wants to help verify this:

 

1: Open event viewer and wait for it to load fully (5 seconds or so)

 

2: Under the error section you should see "CertificateServicesClient-CertEnroll" and double click it.

3: Verify an event id 86 was logged (most likely at system startup time). As you can see I tried alot of combinations.

Anyone that doesn't get stuttering and is sure they have fTPM enabled in BIOS should not see "CertificateServicesClient-CertEnroll" under the errors section since there is nothing to log.

 

e.g. @Soph3D if you try the above and you are correct in what you say, you should not see event id 86.

I asked the same thing some pages back in my first posts, but no one answered me... Anyway I reconfirm.

I'm not sure if this is helpful, but my events look a little different:

The last logs for me were Nov '21, this was around the time Lenovo released some very bad BIOS updates! While attempting to troubleshoot that mess I loaded the default BIOS settings which meant AMD PSP was set to on - the stutters returned of course.

 

Anyway, Lenovo pulled the problematic BIOS from the site and I flashed back to the previous version due to the issues and disabled PSP again. No such errors or stutters since *touches wood*. I am on Windows 10 though.

 

According to my update history, I was on Win 10 Version 21H1 - 19043.1288 at the time of these errors.

 

Currently on Win 10 21H1 - 19043.1466 if that matters.

Any of you that has tpm stutter using non usb headset ? or non usb soundcard ?

@TreesP Yeah that seems normal. Later BIOS probably had TPM on and previous BIOS you are on now did not thus no more errors.

 

Thanks @stage so far the theory is holding up (sorry if you mentioned it previously so much goes through your head with stuff like this you can miss things). I'm sure someone will disprove it soon enough. 😄

What motherboard?

The 5950x is on an X570 Aorus Xtreme and the 3950x is on a B550 PRO-VDH Wifi.

And I have since tested systems with a 3600x on an X570 TUF Gaming and a 5600x on a X570 Aorus Ultra and neither of them display the stuttering issue as well.

AMD 5950X

Can you open Event viewer, and see if you got any SCEP Certification errors?

I'm not seeing any (on any of the three systems I initially mentioned or the two additional ones I was able to lay hands on for testing).

No error 86 here. 87 seems to be something similar, but is regarding TPM requiring a firmware update.

Yes I went back to just usb keyboard and mouse for usb devices and 3.5mm for the audio... still happens. 

 

What do people's event log look like for Crypto-NCrypt? Mines full of errors. Not sure if thats related, but its what AMD is asking for logs of. If you want to see yours, do the following:

  • Right Click on Start > Event Viewer > Application and Service Logs > Microsoft > Windows > Crypto-Ncrypt (double click) > Operational (double click)

 

EDIT

 

Checked another PC (3800x and MSI B550M PRO-VDH) it gets bunch of these errors too, not sure if this pc has the same stutter issues.

I get these event ID 86 errors, but the last one was mid December and I am still getting the stutter daily.

I now have a USB headset, but the one I was using when the problem first occurred was jack input. My soundcard is a realtek chip on the board.

Windows 10 Pro 64, AMD Ryzen 7 3700X,Gigabyte Aorus X570 Elite. Currently fTPM is disabled in BIOS.

1,977 errors for me since the end of September '21, that was the last time I reinstalled Windows before finding out about disabling PSP.

 

Seems to be full of event ID's 1, 2 and 4 with a few sporadic event ID 9's in there - "Key Write Succeeded".

Where is AMD asking to provide these logs? I'd happily submit mine if need be because I've just finished a month long back and forth with AMD support and that ended up going nowhere.

I've been back and forth with Asus and AMD over this issue for the past month. This is just the next step. Wish I knew if anyone was successful RMAing their motherboard and fixing this issue b/c im sure its not the CPU or I have very bad luck and ended up with 2 CPUs with the issue. Wish event viewer actually had a obvious error related to this so I could log it.

Really doubt this is a hardware issue, if it was hardware issue it would happen even with it tpm disabled.

I don't think this is a hardware issue either. This started for me more or less 1 year ago now, I think in my case the BIOS my laptop shipped with did not have PSP enabled, around a month later there was a BIOS update and that is when PSP was enabled by default and the stutters started.

 

I've had 3 repairs under warranty, replaced the motherboard, RAM, SSD, everything. In hindsight, not only was this a waste of time and resources, it was always returned with the same issue because it would ship back with PSP enabled, therefore it was deemed my fault or some software I was using.

 

I've been pretty hard on Lenovo over this, but to be fair, no one ever thought of PSP/fTPM. Only because of posts like this when people enabled TPM for Windows 11 and noticed the stutters did it click for them. For me at least, and I'm sure many others, who have had it enabled pretty much all the time would have never linked the two and tried everything else in the book to fix it, all to no avail.

 

TL;DR: 3 repairs and pretty much everything replaced. Always the same issue on return, so no, I don't think it's hardware either.

I'm sure that fTPM stuttering don't use hardware issue. Btw, I thought it was something more and less like software.

It's most likely something that can be fixed with a TPM firmware update or something else in the chipset drivers; if not then maybe in motherboard bios.

It'd be easier to figure out what the cause of the issue is if AMD would stop pretending there isn't a problem, which is what's got me so frustrated about all of this.

 

We have to take into consideration that this issue only occurs in Windows and not in Linux or macOS (AMD vanilla)

It's most definitely something that is Windows-specific, such as PSP drivers.

This is what grated on me a lot too. Lenovo were guilty of this, and more recently my dealings with AMD support. The generic copy and paste replies, being passed from person to person, "update drivers" etc that gets old really quick, especially when you know the issue is not down to you.

 

Although this is being talked about more now, which is great, are we any closer to resolving the problem? Not really.

 

It's one thing to have an issue, but how it's handled (or not) is another. A little clarity would go a long way I think.

Indeed, the event id 86 appears when I boot the PC with fTPM enabled.
