  • Static, Crackling speakers

    Hey guys I was trying to figure this out and I hope you can help. My sound runs fine with the exception of a loud pop on windows entrance. However, about 5 mins into a trip I start to hear crackling static from the speakers. Any idea? It's odd to be bc I don't year it right away. I tried to play with the frequency and the speakers tend to do it regardless. Please help, beach bound tomorrow!

    To add to this, if I shut down when the crackling begins and restart. The crackling is gone but then later comes back.

      Things like this can usually be solved by adjusting your PCI latency. Video cards, whether on-board or not, tend to demand precedence over the bus, letting the little guys like the sound card get the short stick causing crackling and popping.
      Do a google search on PCI Latency, you'll find some programs that will allow you to change it within windows if the options are not available in your bios.
