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?

This seems like at cables have gone bad or either the connections in the speakers went bad. Its best to replace them unless you know how to disassemble and re-soder the connections.

Had my computer rebuilt and now my cambridge soundworks GCS300 speakers will not work....what do i do


Generally speakers will not need a driver, its more likely your soundcard needs the driver - have you tried anything else rather than the speakers to get sound? If you cant get any sound at all then its your soundcard so you will need the driver for it - otherwise try the link below, its the only thing that comes remotely close to a driver for these speakers -

I have a powered sub for my surround sound and every now and then its starts crackling and popping. i can make it stop by playing with the volume knob or even tapping it sometimes. my old sub did the same...


Does the crackling and popping sound comes only from the sub, or from the other speakers too? Try switching of to check. I think that it is problem on volume control potentiometer. In that case all the speakers must sound crackling and popping. If the problem is only in the sub you have to check its connections.

Dell studio 1737 speakers crackle and pop.


My best guess is, if they crackle with the speakers but not the headfones,  then replace the speakers. Must be a lose wire or something of that nature.

The BA 735 Speakers I have are purely digital and will only work if your soundcard has a digital output, will not work through analogue connection.

Popping /crackling sound


The only solution is to send it back for repair, to HP. Sound drivers and other software will not fix a soundcard/speaker hardware issue. They stated they need to either re-seat the sound card, or replace the card itself. It is not just the speakers, but the card itself. Try using headphones, you will hear the same problem. Send it back for repair, and INSIST they fix it the first time.

You most likely need a new soundcard. You can get a Creative Labs Augidy 5.1 PCI card from Walmart in the box for less that 25 bucks. If you get it I can help you install it.

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.

No sound from speakers


try windows updates. if that doesn't work, then you can try to go to the manufacturer's website for a soundcard driver download.
