Lenovo T430 Laptop, Window 7 sp1, 64 bit

Just today this started. I haven't had any issues before. When playing anything audio (e.g., YouTube, ZeroPunctuation, MP4, MP3, any audio) there is the occasional buzzing/static/cracking noise (kinda like what you'd hear fiddling with a headphone jack) coming from the speakers. It happens regardless of volume (hardware volume, or software setting), or whether I'm using the laptops speakers or headphones (I've tried with various headphones, including some quality BOSE) making me conclude it's not the tweeter or cone of the speaker itself.

So far I've tried updating all the platforms like Flash to see if the issue was that. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Realtek driver, disabling/renabling through Device Manager and restarting, and even using the Troubleshoot Audio Playback.

This is driving me insane as having good audio is a major component of my daily activities. Thank for the help

The speakers on the lower right side of my laptop crackle loud even when the speakers are turned off.  This seems to happen when I have a message prompt awaiting a response from me or if I have any internet browser open.  If I close the browser, the crackling stops.  Very annoying.  When I first reported the issue, HP tech assisted with making sure all drivers were up to date but never was able to fix the issue.  Recommended that I be patient and see if a resolution is found.  Now I'm back with the same problem.

This has been happening for 2 years, but as of earlier this month, my audio has been acting up MUCH more than it used to. Now, whenever I listen to any sound (music, watch videos, etc.) my speakers make this crackling/buzzing/stutter/lag sound every few seconds which makes me never want to use my audio because it is so annoying. I looked up this problem and many people mentioned that by using earphones the buzzing stops, but not for me. Also, I installed and uninstalled a bunch of the drivers that Dell told me to update (IDT Audio, Quickset64, and the BIOS) but this hasn't made any difference. I feel like this is a software problem but I wanted to hear professional opinions to see if it actually is.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

A:Crackling noise in audio on both speakers and headphones

Hi dmang24,
I appreciate for the drivers update. I suggest that you run diagnostics on hardware components, since both speaker and headphones are having crackling noise even after drivers update.
To run diagnostics restart the system and at the Dell logo tap the F12 key every two seconds. This will start the One-time boot menu. Using arrow keys select ‘Diagnostics’ and hit enter. This will run diagnostics on the hardware components of the system which may take around 5 minutes. Please reply to this post in case of any error message.

HiI've got a brand new dell xps 15 9560 for 2 days. I was ready to install 3 pending updates, but after installing them I'm experiencing troubles with sound. When nothing is playing, or when I just lower or raise audio volume, short static noises can be heard. 
These updates were about the BIOS, which is now version 1.5.0 from august 30 apparently (just giving as much information as I can - because I've noticed BIOS updates to pop up in some of the threads about audio noises).
Also, I'm a bit dissapointed that when I plug in external speakers via the jack, my computer will lag a couple seconds, and will not respond as fast as I'd like from this computer when I click 'external speakers' when it prompts me, asking what kind of audio input I plugged in.I've browsed the forums for a solution, I've tried updating the drivers - which were up to date. I've tried resetting sound bit quality, but it throws a warning so I didn't dare messing with that. I'm also not messing with all these dell apps since I'm a brand new dell user, I'm not that experienced with what I can safely remove and what not So I'd like a solution for the crackling sounds, and if possible I'd like to know if I can safely disable the maxxaudiopro promt when plugging in external speakers. I don't need presets for headsets or external speakers - I'll be fine setting sound volumes by myself if that's what this is about. If I can safe... Read more

This has been driving me mad for a couple of days now. I usually work in the evening after my family goes to sleep. I am sitting in a very quiet room and predominantly just type. Occasionally a notification sound would play through the built in speakers and just before that a crackling sound would be emitted. It happens every time system plays any sound, just before going online speakers would just give out tiny crackling sound. After some research I have found out that this is due to the sound card on motherboard going into power saving mode and once it would go back online that distorted crackling would appear. A problem quite popular amongst laptop owners with Realtek sound on the motherboard. Most of the time the solution is to download a new Realtek driver from the Realtek website, go to the HD Audio Manager and turn off power management from the settings menu. It does indeed work as I have tested myself.After installing latest Realtek drivers from their website and disabling power management the crackling is gone as card never sleeps. But unfortunately it also uninstalls Dolby features that come standard with Acer audio drivers. Native drivers have Dolby but they don?t have power management settings in HD Aduio Manager. So right now I can either have native driver with Dolby sound (which I really like) and crackling (that honestly drives me crazy) or Realtek direct drivers without Dolby and no crackling. Anyone knows how I can install Dolby separat...

A:Acer V15 Nitro VN7-592G Speakers crackling noise

Hi, The cracking is done as you told by the latest drivers from Realtek. I think they screwed something up. There were some reports in this topic:http://community.acer.com/t5/V-and-VN-Series-Laptops/VN7-592G-blue-screen-after-installed-Windows-10... Regarding Dolby, well download the drivers from the Acer webpage http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers And inside there is a folder called DS1 and PCEE4. In these folders are the installation files for Dolby. Run the installation from one of these folders and it will install Dobly, but it will not replace your audio drivers.

Hey Guys...

So my Packard Bell Easy Note MX37-S-200 has suddenly started making persistent " Crackling " and " Popping" noises from the moment I boot it. The noise is coming from the speakers and the sound is now distorted. I have very recently got it back from the repair shop after having my AC jack replaced... I would really like to rule everything out before I start pointing fingers at the repair guy

Things I have tried - Disabling sound driver - Noise was still there and laptop just installed it again.

Running avast scan through it - Scan picked up nothing.

Played with the sound setting - Nothing changed noise still there.

Plugged in PC speakers - Noise still coming from laptop but sound came out of the speakers fine.

I have noticed also that when the laptop first starts up the noise is louder and more spaced out. I'm wondering maybe whether it is the fan? But I don't no why the noise would be coming from the speakers.

Would really appreciate any help
Thank you
 

A:Crackling noise coming from laptop speakers + sound distorted

My guess is that based on the information provided that the wires for the speakers have either been damaged or crossed in some way where they are touching something they shouldn't causing distortion. My advice would be to take it back and tell them whats going on and make sure to have them fix it for free if they opened it and caused this problem.

Hi,
First of all thank you for taking the time to read/answer question

Now, on to the problem/question.

For the past 6 months or so I have a crackling/static noise coming from my speakers (confirmed is not due to my speakers because when I connect my headphones, the crackling is now heard on the headphones instead). The sound is very loud during the first 30 minutes or so when the computer is turned on and goes down a bit after 2 hours or so (sometimes the sound stops all together after 4 hours +). I haven't change the position of the computer, nor bought any new hardware which might be causing static/interference. Furthermore, I downloaded the latest sound card drivers just to make sure.

This problem is truly driving me nuts and is preventing me from listening to music, videos etc.

Anyone knows whats going on?

Thank you, looking forward to reply.

Hey, I've got an issue with my brand new HP Pavilion notebook. There's a constant static noise coming from the speaker area (though I'm not 100% sure the speakers are the problem). It's really irritating. I've read that other people had the same issue and managed to solve it by reinstalling Realtek Audio driver but I've tried that twice now and it doesn't improve the situation at all. Even when there's no audio driver installed at all I get the static noise. When I plug in speakers the noise continues (not in the speakers but on the device). If it really is coming from the speakers (which I kind of doubt) it's mainly the right one. In general, the noise seems to be coming from the top right corner.On top of this, when I'm playing videos (even just youtube videos and even if it's just for a few seconds) there's a clicking noise. Any advice on what to do? My product number is X7G62EA#ABU and I'm running Windows 10 (64-bit).Can anyone help please? Best wishesJudith

When the computer is loading something, when I move the mouse, when ever I open a window, etc... the speakers make a humming sound like white noise static and it is very annoying.

I have reinstalled the drivers, and between the time of this starting and now this machine has even been formatted. It still does it. What is going on? It is very irritating!

Speakers are Acer speakers (model number: K2-B)

They are not wireless speakers, but whenever a phone call comes in on my cell when it is near me, they go wild with static.

When I move the mouse it has a lot of static, too.

It isn't loud static, but it is definitely there. And it is annoying.

I have a HP Pavilion 15-n020nr andfor no reason at all my laptop started making this noise. At first it was intermittent static, almost like static beeping, but then it became steady. I restarted my laptop, but it started up again once I turned it back on. I also heard it through my headphones at first but after I unplugged them and plugged them back in now it's just from the speakers again. At first it started as soon as I played any audio, and would stop about 30 seconds after I stopped playing the audio. Now it starts as soon as I start up my laptop. I tried updating my Realtek driver, and my graphics driver (amd radeon hd 8400/R3 Series) but as soon as I did my laptop wouldn't turn on at all. I had to completely reset it from the menu you get when you press esc while booting it up. While that did allow me to use my laptop again, the static noise is still there.

My speakers are making an extra crachkling/static noise. The problem is constant when the computer is trying to make sound including the start up windows sound, and other default windows noises like error msg chirops and beeps. The static goes away if no noise is being produced. I have a C-Media 6501 Like WDM sound card with up to date drivers it is integrated into my Asus AMD Athlon 64x2 Duel Core processor 5400+ with 2gb DDR Ram. The weird thing is that the static only occurs on the front right and front left of my 5.1 surround sound speaker set up and does not go away when I change between digital and analog modes or when I change between 2, 4, 6, or 8 channel set ups, also if I play music it can be heard "under/behind" the static noise at higher volumes thought the volume of the static is constant at all volume levels. I have switched which speakers are plugged in where, (i.e. switching the rear left and front left speakers to see if it changes) and the static does not change with the speaker, it?s the front left and front right no matter what speakers I have plugged into those positions. Also, I have noticed that my center speaker does not seem to make any noise at all, and that before this problem began to occur I would get similar static when I plugged in my Logitech webcam or other USB devices but would stop after I unplugged them and rebooted.

The thing is that these bursts of noise cracks my cornea faster than i can throw my headset away. They usually last until i've closed the game / the browser(youtube) and refreshed it and then everything works properly.
I've noticed that turning the volume up or down on youtube when i get the white noise, does not affect the volume of the cracking noise.

Sadly a static (never-ending) noise has been coming out of my laptop's speakers since yesterday (2-week old laptop).
-As far as I'm aware, there isn't any program that try to play any sound in the background.-The static noise continues when another sound is played.-The noise first appears after a while from when Dell logo appears, close to the sign-in part of windows 10.-The noise stops as I plug in a headphone (i.e probably when the speakers are deactivated).- As far as I’m aware, all the updates from Dell website is done, and no other update from any other source is done.- I don’t know if it is related, but the issue started off after the day where my laptop was in the bathroom for a while (~ 10 mins).Unfortunately I can't get a new unit as I bought the laptop from another country that I don't live in.
Thanks in advance.
Edit: Forgot to mention that muting the sound and/or choosing the sound level to be 0 doesn't stop the noise. Also I feel like the speakers are hotter compared to other parts of the laptop. Should I not use it without headphones plugged in?
Edit 2: After I plug in headphones, the noise stops AFTER I select "Headphones" and press OK in auto-popping Dell Audio program.
Edit 3: 
I re-installed the audio driver, problem went away.
After a day it started again.
I re-installed it again, problem is gone again.Hmm..

Without knowing what happened in the bathroom (and its none of my business lol) it could be steam damage if you were taking a shower or bath or it could be a coincidence too.  Regardless it sounds like the speaker wires are damaged somehow or not properly shielded.  
I would engage a warranty transfer from the country you bought it to the new one you are in by clicking the link here and filling out the form.  It can take a week or two so be patient, and that way you can request warranty work on your laptop.  I will state however that if they find it is water damaged and you do not have accidental damage coverage you will be out of luck.

We would need more info about the issue.
When does the static occur? What application are you using when the static occurs?  Is this issue while playing audio or video or both on the machine? Does this happen on both online and offline files - files from your HDD? Do the headphones work fine?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1SVquRD
Turn off the speaker enhancement and check -http://bit.ly/23gupYw
Run the audio test and headphone test in pccheckup - http://dell.to/21y9GPi

Ive recently purchased this laptop brand new as a replacement to my HP chromebook 14. Although a better spec, this laptop is seriously underperforming compared to the chromebook. Biggest issue is the audio quality, any noise played from the speakers is accompanied by a static buzzing/muffling sound.  How do I solve this?

Hello I just joined this forum in desperate need of help, been searching the net for days without any help :/

So the problem is my friend brought me her laptop ( used to be my old one ) an MSI GT780DX that I installed windows 8.1 on I been trying to fix it for weeks now, It randomly hangs while making a static noise from the speakers, sometimes it does it before I log in other times it happens after days of gaming, I tried formatting the computer and reinstalling windows 8.1, I tried switching out the ram, I also tried switching the hard disk, but nothing seems to help, I'm not that tech savvy, but I know how to get information and use it, currently studying IT Support, but this computer keeps failing on me, I think it might be worth mentioning that this computer has been split 3-4 times with everything disconeccted and reconeccted, please help me getting desperate :/

I have a Dell Inspiron 7778.
When I have my external speakers plugged in to my laptop I am able to play videos and it sounds great.
When I pause the videos for more than a few seconds my speakers start emitting a loud, static-like noise that doesn't stop until I resume the video.
This sound is very annoying.
Can you please help me fix the problem?

Condition1  - "When pressing  brightness keys F11-F12" (little crackling distorted noise from speakers)
Condition 2 - " When music playing out of speakers also at sometimes can hear crackling noise coming" ( like speakers can't handle the frequency properly)

Hi Edwards, I am facing exactly the same issue as yours. First they delay the product, then they cancel the product and when they finally ship the product has issues. Please let me know if you found any solution for this

On my brand new Inspiron 15 7559, I've noticed that there is a static "hissing" noise coming from the speakers whenever I do something that involves audio (playing a movie/game/etc).
The hissing noise is especially noticeable when I mute the volume in Windows.
As soon as I close the video/browser/game that the audio is coming from, the hissing stops as well.
The noise also stops when I plug in a pair of headphones.

I've tried the latest audio drivers, as well as the generic Windows audio drivers and the Realtek HD Audio drivers from Realtek's site, and the hissing noise happens with all of them. I have also updated my BIOS to the latest version

Has anyone else encountered this? I'm beginning to think it might be a hardware problem and I'm leaning towards returning the laptop.

Hello. I don't recall seeing other posts about this same issue with the 7559, although there have been plenty of complaints about a pop noise with it which seems to be related to power management. See the Choppy/Skipping Audio FAQ for tips on that problem, but your symptoms are not of that issue.
If you don't hear the static through headphones then it would seem to be a speaker issue. I think you are on the right track in leaning toward sending it back.

Greetings!

Lately I've been noticing a weird ticking/static like sound coming from my speakers. When I turn the volume higher, the ticking level also increases. Affected are my headphones as well, no matter if I use the headphone input on the speakers, or the front headphone input on my case, the result is the same. When I have both plugged in, headphones in front case and speakers, the noise occurs in sync. I also tried muting the sound in windows and seeing if there's possibly something causing static interference, was not the case, the speakers were silent.
What I also noticed was, when I turned the bass controller to max(a knob on the subwoofer) the subwoofer started reacting(I had no audio running on my pc) to the ticking noise, as in, trying to add bass to the ticking sound, it should have been quiet.

Speakers are 5.1 Logitech X-530.

What I tried to remedy the problem:
- Turned off everything close to my desk, so basically unplugged everything in my room except my pc(also used only necessary devices), also shut down my phone. No change.
- Removed any cables, cleaned the necessary parts, made sure no other cables were interfering. No change.

I've been thinking the problem either being my speakers failing gradually or the integrated sound card(or the input holes, not sure tho, never had a failing sound chip) on my motherboard failing. It can't be the speakers cause in that case the headphone input on my case wouldn't be affected right?

Hello all, new to posting but have been checking out alot of your posts over the past few months, finally found something that I couldn't get an answer for so I'm hoping that I can get an answer here.

About 2 weeks ago I began to notice a crackling sound coming from my speakers, it began as a slight crackle and eventually increased in volume. Now the weird thing is that it doesn't make the sound when I'm listening to music, but does when I am playing most games and watch movies using windows media player. I've tested out two sets of speakers so far and both produce crackling when plugged into this system, but do not produce any feedback on my laptop when plugged in, I'm not sure whats going on but I would certainly appreciate any help!

My current system:
Windows XP Home
2.6ghz Amd Processor
Ati Radeon 9800 Pro
Creative SB Audigy 4 Pro
2gb Ram

If I left anything pertinent out let me know and I can add it. I thank you all in advance for any information you can give!

I just purchased a brand new HP Spectre x360 ultrabook. There is a very concerning static/crackling interference type noise from the speakers and headphones while playing music (spotify) or youtube videos. First I thought it sounded like the speakers were blown out, but since this noise is also present in the headphones I have to assume it's an internal issue. I really want to continue using this laptop, but if I can't get this fixed, I may have to consider returning it. If such a major issue could exist, I don't even want to know how many less noticeable issues may be lurking. Please help me stop this annoying sound so I can use my laptop for such a basic function as playing music!

Hi @ejc16, Welcome to the HP Forums! It is a terrific place to find answers and tips! For you to have the best experience in the HP forum I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide. Learn How to Post and More How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number?  I grasp that you are running Windows 10 and you have a crackling/static  noise from the speakers. Did this  come with Windows 10 installed or did you do an upgrade to Windows 10? Have you done all your Windows troubleshooter? Have you ran the  HP Support Assistant ? Have you done all your Windows updates? Here is a link to Open the Windows Update troubleshooter that may help find additional drivers.   Although it lists Windows 7 it does work in Windows 10. Once launched, it should show a screen like this.    Use the second option "Background Intelligent Transfer Service", it should lead to a force update of 'Windows Updates' that may not be automatically being applied, that could fix some of these issues.  If you connect external speakers do you have the same issue? If you would like further assistance please provide your exact model of HP Spectre X 360 Ultrabook and any additional details.  To say thanks for replying please click the thumbs up icon below.If this resolved the issue for you, please advise people by choosing solution provided.   Best of Luck!...
