Sound is crackling, extremly Annoying!

Q: Sound is crackling, extremly Annoying!

this has never happoned before, it started when i was installing a game called "Tactical Intervention" its a first person shooter, online, its not a disk game, its one you download and install, i even uninstalled it and deleted all files that came with it and my audio is still crackling and shuts off, no sound yet still crackles, i did not turn the sound off, the sound just stops and i still hear the crackling sound, its sounds like a crappy tv with crappy reseption, i searched up the problem and found others having same problem, so i followed what helped someone else but it did not help me, i uninstalled the realtek hd audio and reinstalled it, that did not fix it, so i regestered to the forums where i found that possible fix and here i am, looking for help, i have this feeling that nothing is going to help, in my life time, i have had, maybe 3 times success with help, the other 99% of the time i look for help, i get ignored, helped but in the end it does not work/fix the problem and then ignored, other times people just say they don't know and can not help, so i hope i get get help here.

my OS is vista home premium 32bit, pc is an HP, im using hdmi connection ofr video and audio because thats all i got, idk what else to tell ya, ill be stairing at this page refeshing it every minute, if i can even wait that long, untill someone helps, i am angery but i am respectful to others so please don't think that ill be saying bad stuff, can't wait for help on this matter, im very inpationt, idk how to spell that word.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,
I have read quite many posts so far regarding this issue in Windows 8. It Looks like they have overlooked the Sound skipping problem during playback on different programs and codecs. Whenever one uses Media Player, Spotify or any other audio programs the Sound skipps and crackles. It comes to the point when this is unlistenable any more. My System is definitely strong enough for handling Windows 8 Pro. I've been trying to use different methods like compatibilty installations , playback modifications , drivers etc. but nothing helps. When the system goes in high latency then the sound skipps. Do we need to wait for 64bit proper drivers for Windows 8 update or is there any other solution ? Thanks.

A:Annoying problem with sound crackling and skipping

You say that you have installed the the latest drivers yes?
Where did you obtain these drivers did you go straight to you manufactures website normally under support?
Or where these just pre installed by Windows.

Also it might be worth installing the latests Chip-set driver for your system.
To my knowledge Sony has a programme that you can download from there support page that will install all the latest update for you.

Hi,

I'm trying to record a few of my old videos onto my pc, but when capturing, well even without capturing, the speakers are making this very annoying sound.

Its like a constant popping/crackling sound, kind of hard to explain.

Goes on for a while, then stops for about a minute, then starts again.

If anyone could help me with this, it would be fantastic,

Thanks in advance.

It's a new Dell and it has been making crackling sound since I got it.
I spent an hour on the phone with a technician who restored the laptop with Windows 8.1 to an earlier point in time and it stopped crackling for the rest of the day, but the next day, the noise was back.
The worst are "ding" sounds, they have more crackle than ding. Video playback is bad but at least we can understand what is said. Youtube is bad. mp3 audio is bad. Crackle is there with earphones too.

Hello. If it made the noise right out of the box you probably should have returned it as defective during the brief return period. 
Does it make the noise only when running on battery power or also when plugged into house current?

Hi.My laptop model is hp 15g009ax.When i stop hearing song or any audio in earphones, after approximately 6 seconds I hear a quick crackling sound. The crackling sound comes after any sound that ends or After the specific application that is playing the audio is closed). I will tell you what is did to stop this.1) I updated the sound driver from hp support website specific to my model. Didn't work2) Tried the earphones in other phones and lapotps. Working fine.3) Thought the problem is with windows. So dual-booted windows with Ubuntu 14.04.1. When I tried Ubuntu without installing it, earphones seemed to work fine without crackling after sound ends. But after installing Ubuntu and checked, the same problem repeated, but this time crackling sound started coming before the sound starts and after the sound ends.This is very irritating and after reading some articles about this problem, Some said the problem is due to interference(Not sure) of motherboard with soundcard.Can you please specify the source of this problem and a solution to it.Thanks In Advance

I've been having issues since February's windows updates with crackling sound typically in DirectX games and some video playback such as Steam. In an effort to isolate the problem out I've gone over all my drivers and dust contamination yet again this month. I removed both the 3.51 and 4.01 Klite packs and the VLC player I had been using. Registry cleaned and defragged.

My sound card is an Audigy Fatality champion series with the front panel breakout box.

June 3 2009 driver for it #6.0.1.1373

Dxdiag attached as well.

Next on my list is to see if maybe there's new drivers for my tv tuner capture board which does have sound card resources apparently.

As a side note, I use Ventrilo daily. When ever I launch it after a fresh reboot and connect to a server it locks the PC up for like 90 seconds before behaving normally and displaying the MOTD. It's done this for maybe 6 months. Whenever I have bad game problems I can generally disconnect and reconnect from the vent server without that little annoyance. I want to lay the blame at DirectX, but I've tried several forced updates of it without any improvement.

Playing in the APB beta as well, and thru tips from those players disabled multimedia network throttling in the registry which improved in game performance there a ton.
I really do not want to reload this machine as it takes an eternity to get everything back the way I like it.

Hi folks,

Recently I was setting up a VPN client (PacketIX), and the setup wizard suggested some Audio/Video Streaming "Optimization" tweaks. I didn't pay attention and confirmed.

Since then, I often hear some crackling / popping noises. For instance, this systematically occurs when I Alt/Tab between a running game and my desktop.

An obvious guess is that the damn VPN client messed up some sound settings, but I can't figure out what to do.

I've found a good deal of DPC latency workarounds around here which I tried in vain.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

A:[Sound crackling ] VPN client messed up my sound settings

Try a system restore to before you installed the VPN client. (System Restore)

Then reinstall the VPN client and don't let it fiddle with the audio settings.

Hello, about 3 days ago i bought a sealed brand new HP OMEN 17-W03np which comes with Windows 10 Home (64-bit), i noticed there were some problems with the sound which have been a constant problem since day one. Before and after any sound plays there are these pops/crackling sounds that are noticable (and pretty irritating), the sound appears to play fine after it starts but in a few occasions the sound actually started breaking and there were random pauses while playing sound. There was also this one time the volume randomly went up and down on its own when pausing a sound (in this case it was a video) and then playing it again.Random pops/crackling have also happened while i was on my browser on web pages but there was no sound sources in the web page at all. I've attempted to use earphones while testing sound, and while using them the pops/crackling sound sometimes come out through the earphones, but sometimes they also come out through the notebooks built-in speakers despite the fact the sound is then played through the earphones (which i found pretty strange). This is my first experience with HP and i have to say i am feeling quite dissapointed, could this be a software problem or will i have to send my notebook back? I'd also like to point out that no major program/software installations have been done as this is a brand new notebook so most of the programs/software in it right now are the ones that come pre-installed with the notebook. I will a...

Anyway, whenever I play *most* (I say most because a few mp3s either from winamp radiostations or mp3s on my harddrive dont crack, but the sound quality is still alittle bad) it cracks some-what badly, some worse than others.. I've tried reinstalling the drivers and messing around with the settings, no help...everythings brand-new, so think it might be defective, or an hardware conflict? Thanks in advance.
 

A:Sound crackling, bad quality (onbored sound)

Well you could visit the PCCHIPS website and see if they have any updates for the Sound.

Also try another pair of speakers, could be bad speakers or a damaged cable/plug.

Thats a fairly nice machine, however you shouldn't have skimped on the motherboard - its one of the lowest end manufacturers of mobo's.

You may be better off by simple buying a PCI soundcard - I recommend a Creative Soundblaster - and disable the onboard sound. You'll get better quality sound and better performance in games.

If i increase volume, the crackling gets worse, and distortion really sets in. Strange....only started happening last week. I have tried reinstalling my sound card driver, but no change there. Have looked around all my audio settings but cant find any clues. music etc is still listenable, but there is just a faint crackle constantly annoying me. and distortion if i turn the volume up louder.

Does this mean my sound card is wearing out?? or is it a physical prob inside?

Hello all,
I have a refurbished Toshiba Satellite L650D laptop that I got exactly a year ago. Lately I've been having a problem where the sound goes crackly and even distorted when playing, and up until today I thought it was just me playing sounds too early because it would always go away a few minutes after start up.

Today it stayed around for 10 minutes, before I rebooted. After that it seemed normal at first, even the startup sound wasn't distorted, but about an hour later there is still at last some crackling in my music. It doesn't just happen with window's media player, but youtube as well and it first started to show up around october when I played Skyrim (I just blamed how much memory the game takes up).

I've tried disabling the enhancements (which seemed to be the solution for most others with this problem), I have done virus scans, I have even used the task manager to end some non essential processes that took up memory.

I have noticed in my searches that most reporting similar problems found it got WORSE the longer the computer was on, while in my case it's usually at its worst around startup.

A:Crackling Sound

how much ram does your pc have? if it's less than 256 on xp then that can cause this type of problem. if this is the case then you can go to www.blackviper.com and go through his tutorial on xp and that will help free up the ram. Also download latest drivers for your sound device. if you have onboard sound the drivers will be located on the manufactures site for the mainboard or pc if you have a namebrand ie dell, hp. If you installed a soundcard then you'll have to go to the soundcard manufacturer's site to get the latest set of drivers. you probably know where to find your driver's but I add this info just in case you do not.

Hi everyone,
 
For the past few months I've had a problem on my desktop PC, where for seemingly no reason after a few hours of being switched on, the sound will start crackling.
 
I'm using windows 7 service pack 1 as my OS, and at first i thought the problem was with windows but now I'm not so sure, as the crackling will also happen on my VM using win 7 pro, and also Ubuntu (the only 2 OS installed on my VM).although they are set to use the host audio.
 
I then began thinking it must be my speakers so i checked the connections, which seemed fine and them plugged in some headphones to listen for the crackling through them, and found the crackling was also happening throught the headphones so this must discount it being a problem with the speakers.
 
The crackling sound can best be described as like the sound of when one plays an LP and it kind of crackles at the start. It can get worse than that at times though where it will pop and can distort the music.
 
The crackling happens when i play youtube video's or if i listen to internet radio, or use Winamp or Windows media player, and sometimes even with windows system sounds such as when you click to go into a folder.
 
I'm using Realtek high definition audio and recently updated the drivers hoping this would fix it, to no avail.
 
So basically guys, i have no idea where to go from here, and was hoping people with far more knowledge than me could help me out, if you can I'd be eternally gratef... Read more

Hi all,

Am new to the forums so please be patient with me!

My machine is fairly old but runs Windows 7 32Bit perfectly fine. In fact I was amazed to find all the hardware is picked up fine and runs nearly as fast as XP did.

Have been using it for some time without issues but recently the sound has become what I would describe as crackly and breaks up. It happens when Windows boots and it plays the little intro tune, then when I log on its fine. Then if I play a Quicktime movie trailer for instance it crackles or Youtube etc.

My MSI motherboad doesnt have any downloadable drivers for Windows 7 so its using whatever is the defaults.

I have tried changing the sound settings to different qualities and also reducing it from 5.1 sound to 2 channel stereo but to no avail.

To make sure its not a hardware fault I have reinstalled XP and also Ubuntu with no issues at all.

I then reinstalled Windows 7 and immediately the crackling returns which puzzles me as I ran Windows 7 for months without issues.

I have also tried changing the emulation in the BIOS from AC97 to Azalia but again to no avail.

Any suggestions would be gratefully recieved.

Many Thanks


Paul.

I'm having issues with the sound playing through my Thinkpad when listening to music and watching videos. After a few hours of use, I start getting a crackling sound with audio and video which gets progressively worse. As it worsens it starts interfering with playback and the videos and audio start and stop, in addition, the laptop becomes slow to respond.  To resolve this I delete the internet browser files and delete the sound card from the device manager then restart the computer. This temporarily fixes until after a few hours and I have to start all over again.  I have sent the computer to Lenovo and have reset Windows but it still hasn't fixed the problem permanently. Please let me know what suggestions you might have.

I have all the latest drivers installed on my P50, but I still hear pop/crackling sounds whenever some audio is playing, irrespective of the source. There's a thread here which addresses pop sounds when nothing is playing, so this is a different case. You might think this might me due to clipping as I'm overworking the onboard amplifiers, but this is not the case because even at very low volumes I still hear the pop/crackling sounds. It's the type of sound you hear from someone with a severe cold trying to clear his very clogged nostrils. It's really irritating having to hear it about 5 times every minute. The most weird part of it all is that if I reinstall the drivers, the pop/crackling sound disappears entirely. However, they return after 2 or more restarts. I only experience this issue when the onboard soundcard is being used because I don't notice the issue through my external dac + amp combo. Can someone help here ?

So here is my problem,

I just got a new Win XP Media Center PC with 2 gigs RAM, 360 GB HDD, ATI Radeon video card etc.. I usually don't have many app's open at a time, but when I began playing the Sims I started using more RAM. The Sims 2 takes up about 550 MB of my PC's RAM. The sound on the game's sound crackles when the game is loading or if I am zooming in/out, even when I am clicking on items and giving commands. I tried EA tech support, but I then realized that the same sound crackling happens when I have many app's open using over 600 MB of memory.

I am using a Plantronics Gamecom Pro headset (USB). I tested the sound using a pair of stereo phone jack headphones, but the same crackling still happened.

What could be the problem? I checked all my sound codecs and everything seems to be working normally there.

A:Crackling Sound!!!!

u said all the settings were the same but u may have missed this, check to see if your sound settings are set for digital out instead of analog....if you dont have digital speakers and it is, all you will hear is crackling.

I have one game in which I get crackling sound its Sword of the Stars and the expansion Born of Blood.

Only problem is I have absolutely no idea what sound I have I used to have realtek, but now all I can see on my system is this.

I don't want to get the latest realtek if it is not what I have, anyone know what mine might be, I realise it will be hard but I have no other idea of where else to look, to be more helpful. It just says High Definition Audio Device

Hope someone may know

I don't want to get the latest realtek if it is not what I have



It is, or at least according to what is available from Abit it is,

Universal abit > Motherboard, Digital Speakers, iDome, AirPace, Multimedia

Seeing as what they have is the R1.90 and the latest is R2.10, I would go with the latest,

unless some of the other Realtek users have a better recommendation that the current driver.

I had crackling sound problem in my old computer, and now after building new one it still exist. All parts are new except RAM.

When I watch video without pausing it there wont be any crackling, if i pause/play it fast there will be popping/crackling sound. Problem is pretty bad in Mumble/teamspeak when there is few people speaking, same in many games when there is many different audio sources to play. Crackling and popping really makes gaming with friends annoying...

I have tried different headphones, fresh install windows, new audio drivers.

Here is few videos I recorded (using speakers)
in this video i turn volume completely off and then back on


and this i only adjust volume low/high (pretty fast)

Any Help would be great

A:Sound Distortion and Crackling

The noise problem was a common problem on Win 7, and to a lesser extent on Win 8. There isn't a "one fix" for the problem. Some of the problems can be traced to sound drivers, others to Video drivers, power supply, etc.

Suggest you download and run the Resplendence Latency Mon program. That may get you in the right area.
Resplendence Software - Advanced System Tools and Developer Components

A side note, if you are using the SoundBlaster, disable the on-board audio in the BIOS to avoid conflicts. Unlike Windows XP, newer Windows only allows one default audio playback device.

A:Sound Crackling/ Fuzzy

If it was the updated driver that is causing the problem, you can go to the Device Manager and in the Properties for your sound device you can click on the Driver tab and the select the option to "Rollback Driver" which will revert it back to the old driver.

Hi, I have a Dell pc with the original sound card (crystal pnp). I have run the troubleshooter on the help under start. No conflicts with anything and it has the latest updated drivers.

Does anyone know of any other way to troubleshoot this to see if the sound card is defective? The speakers are not the problem because they are new and i tested them on another source.

Thanks for any help anyone can advice.

One thing you might try : Go Start > Run > type DXDIAG and then select Audio from the top of the interface that appears. And then try adjusting the Hardware Acceleration slider up / down.

I have a strange problem with sound outputs. It affetcs all sound outputs (itunes, movies and games).

The sound 'crackles'/skips. It seems to be related to computer / internet activity ongoing while listening to a song etc.

For the first few hours after re-boot all is fine and I can run loads of programmes without affecting the sound. After a few hours (maybe 6) it starts but infrequently (3x a minute) with very small skips, after about 24 hrs it's got so bad that things are unlisteneable - literally!.

Once the problem has started I've tried turning all other programmes off but it makes no difference

It's not the heaphones and I've tried with speakers / other phones and it's still there.

I've checked the sound thing drivers (realtek) and updated, it doesn't seem related to any particular combination of programmes or computer activities but the fact it gets worse over time is a constant.

It's a Compac machine only 6 months old and has no other issues I'm aware of

I'm now restarting the machine every 12 hours or so or using it without music.

Any ideas suggestions etc much appreciated

Hi team

I have a surroundsound system which I've plugged into my speaker/headphone output.

I don't expect it to work in full surround sound put when i put it into surroundsound mode the extra speakers crackle and then cut out, and the whole system stops making any noise. It only works with surround sound feature disabled on the soundsystem.

I have looked into the sound settings on my laptop and it doesn't give me the option of any satellite speakers, that box is just greyed out.

Does anyone who knows more than me about sound systems (not very difficult) know how I can make use of my extra speakers?

Cheers

Hi everyone.

I am posting this as last resort. Recently i upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 Ultimate edition and got a problem i ve seen for the 1st time in my life.

Every time i start game (Call of duty Modern Warfare 2) sounds starts to crackle, slow down and game becomes graphicaly laggy...

Then i found another way to test if sound and system are ok...

When i start GOM player and start to rapidly press ENTER button, to go IN and OUT full screen i notice that sound starts to crackle and system to slow down making full screen to window screen so laggy that even when i stop pressing ENTER it still continues to expand and restore full screen...

Last night i cleaned a bit of PSU from dust, but ive noticed theres some on CPU cooler, GPU cooler and, PSU air intake cooler... I ve played for like 30 mins and crackling was gone, i rebooted after that and crackling was back...

This morning i did total clearing of PSU, CPU and GPU coolers nad so far i... Read more

I tried everything i could think of. I Reinstalled my os, updated my pc and sound drivers,Disabled Realtek From device manager, Mest with all the settings, Plugged them into all my usb ports onto my pc, All types of stuff but nothing.

I added my Dxdiag.txt too the post but here is the audio part.
