    I'm having the same problem. I tried to download a new verion driver but the problem is still there and very annoying

  • RonaldBetty May 19, 2009

    I have a Inspiron 530 and the sound also crackles. I tried everything to overcome the problem, like updating drivers, removing drivers, stopping various processes, but nothing seems to help. Dell once replaced the motherboard, but that also didn't solve the problem. The problem is getting worse, even if there is no change in the configuration.

Laptop making crackling noises


Lol. Any sparks flying and smoke and funny electrical fire smell? If not, have you played the volume at max and turned up the equalizer bass very high? Might be you popped one or both speakers. (I did that once so I have to only use one speaker or it sounds like crackling garbage). If that isn't it, might be motherboard's sound chip might be fried. You'll need to be a bit more specific in order for us to help you. <:0)

Crackling sound


Have you tried some headphones directly into the headphones socket? Does the sound still crackle? Usually 'crackle' is associated with dodgy leads and you will be able to hear the lead responding to movement by crackling more, a hissy sound often means that there is a fault with the socket and sometimes removing and reconnecting the jack into the socket a few times will help this. If it sounds like hiss with little pops it's usually electrical interference and could mean a bad earthing in the circuit somewhere

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.

You might have a bad connection on your sound card or sound module. If you are savvy enough, you can easily check these. If not, take it to an authorized dealer. Good luck!

When i play music there is crackling and popping noises inside the speakers


Check to make sure it isn't the speakers with earphones. If it doesn't make the sound you have a bad speaker or a bad amplifier.

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.

Speakers on new dell Studio Laptop 1737 crackle and pop


Likely, what you are experiencing is the fact that the batteries in your speaker are running low. The sound of this speaker – as with any battery operated device – is reliant on fully-charged batteries. When the charge gets too low, you will experience sound distortion or abnormalities. Just put in fresh batteries, and you should be all set.

Crackling Sound From Subwoofer


Check any wiring coming or going to the subwoofer. It sounds like it could be a loose connection.  Is there a LFE or bass boost knob on your subwoofer? Does turning that up/down cause the crackling (if it exists). If so, you could use some tuner cleaner to clean the contacts on the potentiometer knob.

If the crackling is on the subwoofer only, it might be damaged from bottoming out.  See if you can remove the baffle or grille covering the woofer and inspect for visual problems. You can also try to lighly push in and out on the subwoofer to hear if it makes any scraping sounds. If so, it is definitely damaged and the driver will have to be replaced.
