    my aspire 3690 has the same problem i can't even play any music . the start up also is terrible. i thought that the realtek high definition sound was GOOD but after using it for some time i am wondering , the crackling is frustrating . i even removed twice and reinstalled it but the same results

    Same problem. Realtek HD built in audio. For me, on a Toshiba Satellit A205. Uninstalled Skype. Downloaded latest drivers from toshiba model site. No change. Uninstalled drivers and then downloaded latest drivers directly from Realtek site. No change. Static-like crackling noise and distorted sound when playing sounds. I've tried digging as deep as I can into the software and drivers looking for anything to switch off (or on) that would change the crackling sound. Nothing. The only thing that works is using Device Manager to completely disable Realtek HD - so it would appear to be software related.

To fix this:
Go into realtek, go into every device and go to format, and select the lowest format (should be 16 bit) that should lower crackling SUBSTANTIALLY.
Then right click the speaker and click playback devices, now right click your speakers and click properties, then go into enhancements and click immediate mode and then click disable all enhancements. Works every time.

Mute the mic volume on recording option. That will do it.

I'm an XP user, so my solutions are based on that operating system.

Definitely a software issue, unless you dropped your laptop recently before this all happened, then I'd say hardware issue, and good luck fixing that.

If you have all the software for your computer (restore discs, etc..), then the first thing I'd do is REMOVE ALL of your audio devices and Skype under "Control Panel"/"Add Remove Programs", and/or "Device Manager".

Then reboot and reinstall everything you just deleted, and finally, go online and update everything as well.

Thats likely to solve your issues, if it's not a hardware problem.
