Okay... So my problem is kinda strange. Sometimes when i'm turning off the laptop the speakers sound all like crackly and laggy. I didnt think anything of it at first just that maybe cause i was turning it off without closing all the programs i was running causing the sound to lag out. But then recently I was on youtube and fail... It started to do the laggy thing but then it'd like stop and then do it again... So I was wondering if it's not the drivers maybe my sound card is failing? Any help would be awesome.

Re: HP DV5000 Speaker problems... Lag??
It may be the speakers are going bad or you may need to update your sound card drivers.Try going to your setting for your sound and make sure the settings are correct.Make sure they are set for laptop stereo speakers with full hardware control.

1. The speaker is literally blown out. Sometimes you can even see a rupture in the diaphragm; or 2. The speaker amplifier chip shorted. There may also be a blown fuse or resistor on the motherboard if that is the case.
It's possible that the problem is in the audio Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC), but that is much less likely than 1 or 2.
Some HP models come with a diagnostic partition on the hard drive, separate and hidden from Windows. Booting to this partition brings up a diagnostic program, which may include a speaker test. If the speaker fails this test, you definitely have a hardware problem, not an odd glitch in Windows. See your owner's manual or check the HP documentation software on the computer if it is still present.
If I had this in the shop, the first thing I'd do is check the resistance of the speaker to verify it is the same as the right speaker. If it's open, I'd replace it. Next, I'd find the audio amplifier and check resistance from the speaker to the chip power and ground connections. If it reads very low (typically less than 0.1 ohms), a speaker driver transistor shorted and the chip needs to be replaced. In that case I would also check for fuses in the amplifier circuit and replace any that blew out.
It's very strange that you're experiencing the same problem when you connect your headphones. I would suggest checking the audio settings to ensure that it is properly balanced. If you need further assistance, please give us a call day or night at 800-595-3564.
