after i got back from holiday i realised my speakers are crackly but its not normal crackles it only begins after like 5-10 mins or whatever its using like Spotify but if i change the sound quality on normal settings it goes back to normal but 5-10 mins later does the same thing and i have to switch again its fine on Netflix though I've tried using my headset and the crackles come through that to. my laptop is up to date and i installed the big update from a few months back no fix i also went back to old updates but no fix. I've updated drivers and basically done most seen online.. i cant update my drivers from my graphics company AMD ryzen which do multiple drivers ext. and it wont work. says something about unable to locate file find new pathway and shows me my files and tried selecting folders ext. but doesn't work. don't know how to fix that either which will potentially fix my laptop this has been on going for months since October and I'm stuck in a cycle. I've also tried updating them from just settings through your laptop and it didn't fix it. I've tried so so much its stressful. my laptop is a HP pavilion with ryzen 5 Radeon graphics. graphics need updating to but cant because of the AMD notification that comes up.
