    I am experiencing an annoying and worrying sound from the left speaker of my Acer laptop. The sound occurs regardless of what volume the laptop is set to including muted/0% and only occurs when my eGPU is connected. The noise modulates subtly along with any sound being played through that left speaker but never goes away or gets fainter.It is a loud buzzing/crackling which sounds a lot like electrical arcing.I posted the sound on Reddit to see if anyone there could suggest any possible solutions I agreed it sounds similar to a bad earth but I cannot understand why this would only affect a si

    :)

    Cannot change sound quality frequency/Crackling speakers

    Issues with my lenovo ideapad 330s Laptop:

    • Crackling speakers sometimes they are silent or in other cases they stay quiet no matter the volume.
    • Crackling in earbuds
    • cannot change sound frequency (grayed out)
    Note: The speakers were fine when i got it but after I reset windows theyve started crackling. Ive tried fixing my crackling speakers by:

    • uninstalling/reinstalling device drivers
    • reinstalling windows
    • creating new accounts
    • disabling every driver one at a time to see if that changes anything
    • checking internal cabling to make sure no wires are touching
    I still have yet to try changing sound frequency because its grayed out

    PS: nothing important is on the computer i dont mind losing anything.

    Help would very much be appreciated.

    Laptop speaker crackling noise problem

    Hello,

    My laptop has developed a very annoying crackling noise in the right speaker as of late. I started noticing it as I was listening to some music on it, and then it gradually got worse and worse to the point that I couldn't bear it any more. I do not get this problem when I wear headphones, it's just the right speaker acting up. The laptop is new (less than two months old) and still under warranty. At the moment I have turned the speaker off and I am only running off the left one when not using headphones. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. Also, I don't think it's driver related because the left speaker works flawlessly and I don't get the same annoying crackling sounds when using headphones.
