Clicking Noise from Speakers

Hp Spectre x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I post here today because I have a really really really annoying problem.


Everything started the day I installed The Anniversary Update of Windows 10, I am a League of Legends player and am using this Spectre X360 (i5-5200u) for a year to play this game.


The day I installed the Anniversary Update everything went wrong, because as soon as my game of LoL started the PC was crashing (after lots of " clicking/buzzing noise from the inside of the laptop while charging the game). 


I solved this THANKS TO RIOT SUPPORT (And not HP or Microsoft Support who are just a bunch of people who only tell us to do what's on their board, without having a personal opinion). 


I think I had no issue then for several days/weeks but now I have a new annoying problem as my speakers are doing a clicking/buzzing noise every 20/30 seconds (And it's really a loud one). Even when there is no " music / sound etc.. " to recreate the speakers are still clicking/buzzing. It happens while listening videos on youtube, music on my laptop, when nothing happens etc.. 


It's either a software (Drivers etc.) or hardware problem but as my guarantee expired I hope it's a software one. But believe me when I say that if it's a hardware problem HP will have to fix this FOR FREE as it seems to be a general problem because I'm not the only one suffering from this:


I also found someone who gave a solution ( but I can't make it work on my laptop as I can't do this step " HIGHLIGHT 'HIGH DEFINITION AUDIO' (NOT REALTEK) CLICK 'NEXT' AGAIN IGNORE WARNING AND CLICK 'YES' -
RESTART / REBOOT WHEN PROMPTED " because there is no HIGH DEFINITION AUDIO appearing on my screen at this step. 


So now, what I want is to have a clear and real solution to this problem.


Thank you.

So I tried to install your Audio Driver but it failed to install (Once the laptop restarts it says that " the driver isn't the good one for this system (vista) and couldn't install ". 


I have no Enhancements possibilities with my speakers so it's not related to that too.
