This problem started 2 days ago. The sound usually gets staticy when I launch any game, but it stops when I close my browser &/or other files that aren't the game. If all fails, I just restart the laptop and it gets fixed... till I launch any game

 

This MAY be related:

1_Battery has been damaged since 2013, so I have my charger plugged in all the time. No, removing charger doesn't do anything.

2_I've noticed that games run just a little slower than usual since this happened.

 

I am very unfamiliar with tech, so if you ask me to do such and such, please provide the steps on how to do it.

Does the static get more active when you open a file?

It is the same, I think. But It is REALLY loud that I can barely hear any thing.

 

It is usually when I have a video playing or paused, especially on YouTube. Sometimes the video or game audio cuts out completely, so I have to close browser or game (depends on which one audio stopped) to get it to work again

It could be a messed up audio card or onboard audio that is making the static on certain amounts of power usage. Before we go replacing everything, have you tried using a headset?

Yes, the result is the same.

Try running a different operating system on the laptop, like Linux Mint.

Linux Mint is a live cd, so you do not need to install it.
