Gateway Computer Speakers are crackling/popping

My Gateway 710X has the Augidy II Soundcard. The speakers just started crackling & popping. I have changed speakers, changed the connection wire between soundc ard and speakers, updated the Audigy Drivers, and nothing helps. Could the soundcard be broken?
Sound Card is Sound Blaster Audigy II Audio with IEEE1394 Sound Card.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

    Do you have any other soundcards built in or installed?



    Have you recently installed any other new hardware?

Yes it could be going out on you, if you have empty slot on mainboard or another computer you can try it on,then you can confirm if it is broke or not. hope this helps, glen

Crackling and hissing sound either on speakers or when using headphones. Speakers work fine on another laptop. Only happens on my Gateway 5260 desktop.


It's probably related to the drivers. Go to Creative Labs website and download the latest driver package for the specific card and OS you're using. They'll walk you through how to identify the exact model of the card if you're unsure. Hope this helps.

The sound has become very low and crackly, and when I add external speakers, I get crackling and/or a big squealing. It worked fine until 3 days ago model T61 7662 CTO


My first impression is that the reason for the crackling and the squealing on external spreakers is probably from the onboard mic. My first suggestion would be to go into the sound settings and mute the microphone and see if the problem still exists. If it has gone then I would clean the area where the mic is of just keep it muted and use an external one.

I have a Dell Dimension 9100 and Creative Soundblaster X-Fi OEM soundcard. I have no sound coming from my speakers, only a crackling noise. I have tried all tests available on the PC/control panel. I have...


Ok
Do the following, power up the PC and hit F12
Select DIAGNOSTICS - let em load and run only the sound test. This will make sure the speakers and cable are working. (make sure thewy are plugged into the right hole) then power on the system and hit F2 to enter the BOIS and make sure you disable on the on-board sound card. This is the one that is on the motherboard not the add in card.
Reboot the system and then try your speakers in the SB card and see what happens
Hope this healps you

Crackling / Popping sound in my PC's audio output


Your soundcard is going bad. The easiest way to fix is to replace with a new soundcard. Depending on what features you want the price could be anywhere from $35 to about $140. Hope this helps.

Gateway Computer 710X Speakers are crackling/popping


It sounds as if the card itself may be physically bad. or you may have a microphone connected/something in your mic jack and you are picking up noise.
