Just purchased laptop fresh out of box today. Continued crackling whenever a sound starts on right side of speaker, sound carries through when wearing headphones on right side only. Have attempted to uninstall/reinstall Realtek countless times to no avail, very frustrated at this.
Appreciate the attempt friend but alas, it didn't work. I think the HP chap I spoke to seems to have confirmed it as a hardware fault, if you have any other driver ideas, I'm all ears to try but it seems my bad luck came into play with this one 😞
