Gateway Computer 710X Speakers are crackling/popping

I have changed speakers, speaker connection wire, updated sound card drivers, and the crackling/popping still persists. My Gateway 710X sound card is Sound Blaster II Audio with IEEE 1394 Sound Card.

Do you have any suggestions on how to get the crackiling and popping repaired?

Thanks for any help.

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.

Built- in speakers crackling sound


1. This can happen if you have played something with a lot of bass and the speakers are now damaged. The speakers might need replacing.
2. It could be that the speakers aren't that good in the first place.
3. Try updating the drivers on your computer for the speakers
4. There could be a connection problem within the laptop where the wires are not properly inserted into the motherboard.
Hope this helps.

Just moved and my speakers are not working. The green wire is plugged into. Thecomputer - am I missing something else? We have power in the speakers


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

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.

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.

Sound only playing out of one speaker in Windows XP


Go into Sound Settings under control panel. There should be a left-right audio control setting in there.

If that doesn't work, try updating the sound driver for your computer.

Crackling and popping sounds in surround sound speakers


Could be your head unit or the connection to the speaker may be bad. Also if the wire to the speakers in your ceiling is bare and touching any ground it would interfere. Start by checking connections by playing something and messing with wires. Listen for a difference. Next check by putting the wires that power those speakers in a known working output and listen for different quality

Crackling Speakers


Hello,

That because maybe due to your itunes player which the installation got error..please try another player other than Itune or play it in windows media player or some other player which you think good player.

Or try reinstall your player or update it.

if this not resolve the issue, then verify the connection of your sound card maybe got grounded to other components making the sound crackle..Or you may try attached a grounding wire from your stuff directed to the ground or attached in any metal that is connected to the ground to eliminate noise.

please tell me what ever result for further analysis
