Question about HP Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Crackling Speakers I listen to a lot of music when I'm doing stuff around my room that isn't on my computer, and today I noticed that my speakers would crackle every once and a while (I determined that it crackles in 1 minute intervals for 2 or 3 seconds each crackle). At first I shrugged it off because I had just added some music to my library on iTunes and figured they were lesser quality rips than my other stuff, but once I got into the music that I knew didn't normally crackle, it would still crackle. I have recently added a new video card and a new wireless network card, and I don't have a sound card, just what came with my computer. I have determined that it isn't my speakers, so is there anything I can do to fix it that is easy on the wallet?

    No, it only crackles when sound is being played.

    I tried playing music with both QuickTime and Windows Media Player, and QT had the same crackling rate as iTunes, and WMP had reduced crackling, but was still there. I also reinstalled iTunes, and that didn't help either.



    Now, about the hardware, I'm using what's on the motherboard, I don't have a seperate sound card. I was under the assumption that the motherboard was already grounded.

    If you leave the speakers on, but don't play anything, does it still crackle?

Try updating your sound drivers. Locate the make and model of your motherboard (usually on the BIOS screen when you first turn on the computer) and post it back here if you need help finding them.

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

Hey, I've got an HP Compaq D530 SFF desktop machine whose sound card uses the SoundMAX drivers. The problem is that when I connect earphones/headphones on the front panel, and try to listen to music or...


if you go to the bios (restart computer and press del to go to setup) you should be able to look around and find the option for internal speaker. Set that option to disable and do not change anything else unless you know your way around. Save it and restart afterwards and it should disable the internal speakers.

Continuous crackling coming come speakers AND headphones while i am trying to listen to music...very frustrating


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 causing it to overheat any many other problems

hope this helps

Crackleing


No its not EMI.- I have them too and mine are little over a year old. Have noticed the faint smell of electricial burning. Checked the sub and the amp/pwr supply in there must be slowly breaking down. I cant turn my speakers up past 25 percent volume and the crackling/hum gets very bad, We should all be looking for replacement at this point.

Car speakers turn on and off randomly and make crackling sound?


The answer is: "Yes." If your speaker wiring is such that they all share a common ground wire, and that ground wire is shorting out, it can cause all speakers to go silent when it is grounded (shorted). I would check the wiring, and replace any cracked wiring, and if the wiring looks like the shielding is worn, replace all the speaker wiring. Monster cable is the best, but any heavy copper wiring works fine. I often use 110V. appliance wiring to install car stereos.
