RE: Dell Inspiron 11 (3147, Mid 2014) makes crackling sound whenever sound is played
I just started having the "crackling" noise when playing a video and now even Windows sounds crackle. Is this a Windows update problem and if so which one? I like having Windows Update automatically update my drivers as the Dell drivers are so old. I fear it is the last Realtec update and am going to try to to rollback my driver. I hope this isn't a hardware failure. I am currently running a custom Dell diagnostic on the audio and it's taking forever.
