Earphones crackling sound before sound starts and after sound ends

[ Edited ]
Product Name: hp 15g009ax
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


  • My laptop model is hp 15g009ax.When i stop hearing song or any audio in earphones, after approximately 6 seconds I hear a quick crackling sound. The crackling sound comes after any sound that ends or After the specific application that is playing the audio is closed). I will tell you what is did to stop this.
  • 1) I updated the sound driver from hp support website specific to my model. Didn't work
  • 2) Tried the earphones in other phones and lapotps. Working fine.
  • 3) Thought the problem is with windows. So dual-booted windows with Ubuntu 14.04.1. When I tried Ubuntu without installing it, earphones seemed to work fine without crackling after sound ends. But after installing Ubuntu and checked, the same problem repeated, but this time crackling sound started coming before the sound starts and after the sound ends.
  • This is very irritating and after reading some articles about this problem, Some said the problem is due to interference(Not sure) of motherboard with soundcard.
  • Can you please specify the source of this problem and a solution to it.
  • Thanks In Advance
