15 R3, Speaker audio crackling, chirping issue
This very same issue just happened a few minutes ago on my 15 R3. Currently trying to reinstall windows to see if that would help. But as far as I have read till now no real solutions were given that lead to fixing it.
- removed audio driver.
- switching output devices
- Plugging in external speakers
Does NOT do a thing of making this non stop jittering and cracking noise go away. And with that I mean its there 24/7. We opened up the laptop a few minutes ago when we woke and a loud static noise came through the speaker. Stopping after a minute or so. After that, whatever sound was played through ANY sound device made the speaker emit loud noise, stutter and distortion as if it was having a full audio buffer.
