XPS 13 9343 sound cracking/popping

Hello all,

I have had noise cracking/popping on my XPS intermittently for the last few months soon after I updated to Windows 10 Pro. The cracking seems to occur when I'm streaming something (i.e. YouTube, Netflix, Twitch, etc.) whether for one minute or several hours.

I have tried restarting the computer, updating drivers on the Dell website, disabling audio enhancers, disabling add-ons in Firefox. I can't seem to find any solution. It seems like a lot of people are struggling with this. Any other suggestions?

Reinstall the chipset drivers into the computer, reboot and then install the audio drivers. Below is a link to download the drivers for your computer. You can also adjust the Hardware Acceleration.
