In this tutorial, learn how to fix Laptop speakers crackling on Windows 10.

Even when you’re wearing headphones, you can hear a crackling, popping sound emanating from your laptop. There’s no need to be concerned. As inconvenient as the problem may appear, it is not difficult to resolve.

Continue reading to find the right remedy for you by following the easy-to-follow procedures with pictures.

  1. Change Sound Format 
  2. Update Audio Driver
  3. Disable Sound Enhancement
  4. Change Power Settings

The photos below depict Windows 10, although the improvements are also applicable to Windows 7 and Windows 8.
It’s possible that your computer’s sound format is to blame. To alter it, follow these steps:

How To Fix Laptop Speakers Crackling on Windows 10

1. Change Sound Format

1) Select Playback devices from the context menu of the sound icon in the bottom right corner of your desktop.

2) Click Properties on your default audio device, which should have a green check on its icon.

3) Select Advanced from the drop-down menu. Choose 16 bit, 44100 Hz (CD Quality). Then, to save the modification, click Apply and OK.

If the CD Quality option does not alleviate the popping sound problem, consider switching to a different audio format and see what happens.

2. Update Audio Driver

If none of the previous solutions help to repair your laptop speakers, the problem is most likely due to driver issues. You can get the correct drivers for your audio card in one of two ways: manually or automatically.

Manual driver update – You may find the most recent right driver for your audio driver by going to the manufacturer’s website and searching for it. Make sure you only install drivers that are compatible with your Windows 10 version.

Automatic driver update – If you don’t have the time, patience, or computer skills to manually upgrade your audio driver, you can use Driver Easy to do it for you. Driver Easy will recognize your machine and find the appropriate drivers for it, as well as your Windows 10 variation, and will download and install them correctly:

1) Get Driver Easy and install it on your PC.

2) Launch Driver Easy and select Scan Now. After that, Driver Easy will check your computer for any problematic drivers.

3) To automatically download and install the right version of a flagged audio driver, click the Update icon next to it (you can do this with the FREE version).

Or, if you have the Pro edition, click Update All to automatically download and install the right version of all missing or out-of-date drivers on your system (you’ll be prompted to upgrade the Pro version when you click Update All).

3. Disable Sound Enhancement

Enhancements are used by several sound drivers to increase sound quality on your PC. However, if the upgrades aren’t performing properly, a crackling sound issue may arise. To turn it off, do the following:

1) Select Playback devices from the context menu of the sound icon in the bottom right corner of your desktop.

2) Click Properties on your default audio device, which should have a green check on its icon.

3) Select Enhancements from the drop-down menu. Disable all enhancements should be checked. Then, to save the modification, click Apply and OK.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t a universal option, as not all software drivers provide it. You may also see a tab called Sound Blaster, as well as comparable effects. It’s also possible that you won’t see the choice to disable improvements at all.

4. Change Power Settings

1) Press the Windows logo key on your keyboard, then type control into the search box. Select Control Panel from the drop-down menu.

2) Select View by Large Icons, then Power Options.

3) Choose Change plan settings for whichever plan you’re currently using.

4) Choose Change advanced power settings.

5)  To extend Processor power management, locate and click the Plus button. Expand both the Minimum processor state and the Minimum processor state. Change the setting ( percent ) value to 100. Then, to save the modification, click Apply and OK.
