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.

  • ak45000 Feb 11, 2009

    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

Crackling sound whenever i play music or video on my computer


Make sure that your speakers/headphones are plugged in all the way to the jack you're using, and that there isn't any interference on the line. This is probably the issue.

Tip

To connect a music player or other audio device to your laptop


<br />If your laptop has a line-in jack, follow the instructions above for connecting a music player to a desktop computer. But to connect a music player or other audio device to most laptops, you'll have to plug it into a microphone jack. To do so, follow these steps:<br /><br />Click to open Sound. <br /><br />Click the Recording tab, click Microphone, and then click Properties.<br /><br />Click the Listen tab, click the Listen to this device check box, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Click the Levels tab and make sure the Mute button looks like this . If the button looks like this , click it to turn on sound for this connection, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Play some music or other sounds on your device to test the volume coming through your computer speakers. Select the slider under Microphone, drag it right or left to increase or decrease the volume of your audio device, and then click OK. You might also want to adjust the volume on your device.<br /><br />Note<br />If you hear noise coming out of your speakers, try reducing the volume on both the music player and in the Levels tab. The microphone jack is designed to receive sound from a microphone, which is different than sound coming from a music player

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.

My dell dimension 3000 makes cracking sounds when i play music


Check your speakers first. Plug the cable from your speakers into a cell phone, ipod or some other music device that has headphone port. If the speakers are crackling then, then you know it's the speakers. If not, then it's a computer issue in which case you might want to contact Dell.

Good luck!

Will it harm my laptop to listen to music on it every night all night?


No, it will not harm your laptop, it might harm your ears if you listen to it too loud through headphones. The only possible damage could occur if you listen through the laptops speakers, too loud and constant would adversly wear out the speakers.

I have no sound on my computer-emachine T3095


The type of speakers you choose for yourself have several factors that come into play:
your location (does your sound have a volume limit such as a noise ordinance in an apartment complex)
What are they being used for (music, games, movies, work, voip chat)
Your music genre preference (heavier bass means you will want an actual bass)
sound quality (are you an audiophile or does sound quality not truly matter to you.)

I got a decent pair of 5.1 surround sound speakers for just under 100$ by logitech, but a buddy of mine purchased a 300 dollar set that shakes his room when he plays FPSs

I have a HP pavilion dv7 1016nr. Listening to music through it sucks. I get a crackling sound on every track. I've gone back and played the track again to be sure it isn't my files. I.ve tried my music...


I have encountered several HP Pavilions with similar problems.

First of all I would suggest muting any input sources in windows volume control. (microphone (mic); line-in; auxiliary; etc.)
P.S. Voice communication software like Skype work better with the micophone muted anyway, because that way the sound recieved by the mic does not get echoed through your speakers.

If that doesn't help then I suggest updating the audio driver. The latest one can be found here:

Hope that helps.
