Crackling Noise on left side of the earphone

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Power 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have just bought a brand new HP pavilion power 15, whenever I try to listen to music via wired earphone or speaker it produces cracking sound on left side of the eaephone/speaker.


I have tried reinstalling the driver and doing everything mentioned in the community but nothing worked.


Wireless earphone and speakers works nicely but wired one produces crackling noise.


Shall I send my laptop back for replacement? Or it can be fixed 🙂

Welcome to HP Community


I have gone through your Post and would like to help


Please run an Audio Test from F2 Diagnostic and let me know if you hear the crackling sound


- Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the Notebook.
- Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. 
- When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
- On the main menu, click Component Tests and  Audio


Thank you
