So my Packard Bell Easy Note MX37-S-200 has suddenly started making persistent " Crackling " and " Popping" noises from the moment i boot it. The noise is coming from the speakers and the sound is now distorted. I have very recently got it back from the repair shop after having my AC jack replaced... I would really like to rule everything out before i start pointing fingers at the repair guy
Things i have tried - Disabling sound driver - Noise was still there and laptop just installed it again.
Running avast scan through it - Scan picked up nothing.
Played with the sound setting - Nothing changed noise still there.
Plugged in PC speakers - Noise still coming from laptop but sound came out of the speakers fine.
I have noticed also that when the laptop first starts up the noise is louder and more spaced out. I'm wondering maybe whether it is the fan? But i don't no why the noise would be coming from the speakers.
Would really appreciate any help
