Re: sound crackles

Try connecting a set of headphones to the audio plug on the laptop. See if the sounds are still there. This might be a problem with your speakers, either they are faulty or they are picking up interference. M

Try updating your DVD firmware (located at the support website from dell) and see if it fixes the problem. I believe, i-Tunes causes a conflict between your dvd rom drive. You can check it here at the microsoft website

Getting sound crackling issues and slowdown when simultaneously playing itunes and a 3D game WHILE USING HEADPHONES.

just try to repair your Operating system(xp,winvista) and also check if you're have enough memory to run the games,because each and every game have requirement check for these compatibility if your computer is capable to run such games.

Dell Inspiron 5150 not playing sound

Your speakers are frying, hence the crackling sound, as this is a frequent problem owing to the location of the speaker assemblies and the sound output in an area of the system where the ambient heat exhaust vents are located.

I am a bit confused, though, as to why you get no better sound through headphones or external speakers, since this is not usually the case in this frequently cited problem.

One possibility is that not only are the speakers, but the entire sound output assembly.

Warrantee work if available, if not try a shop where they also sell used Dell computers as they will have pulls that could cut your losses.
