I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing audio problems where the sound is heavily distorted with crackles and pops? I downloaded the 600 MB audio soft pack and installed multiple times. I've also reinstalled Windows 10 about 3 times and reinstalled the BIOS. I did use HP Support with a real live person but we're at the point of having me ship the PC to HP in Texas for repair. I was able to get the audio working for a short period of time with the support.hp.com audio troubleshooter. As long as I use "shutdown" and not "restart", the fix keeps working. But if I do a "restart", then the crackles come back.
