My laptop gets stuck for a few seconds whenever i open any vidoe in VLC. The system then creates a noise and the video starts. Once started there are no issues during playback. Please help me in resolving this issue. My laptop specs are:

Dell Inspiron 14 5459
Windows 10 Pro x64
Ram 4 GB
Hard Disk 1 TB

Task manager shows that for a normal sized video 1.1 to 1.3 GB memory is being used, with a 1080p 2 GB movie max i have seen 1.6 GB spike in memory usage.

Its a crackling noise very hard on the ears. I looked up this issue on dell support and apparently the waves maxaudio may be the issue. i have turned off this feature from the start up processes and the issue seems to be resolved but that would mean that i am not using the waves max audio at all.
