The speakers on my laptop have started to crackle at random times. I've had this laptop for 3 years at this point, and it's only started having this problem now. The crackle doesn't happen when wearing my headphones. However, I noticed it does happen more frequently when I plug something into the laptop's USB ports. Even ignoring when I plug something in, however, the crackle still happens at random. I noticed it will go away when I right click the volume icon and toggle between having Spatial Sound on or off, but I would like a more permanent solution.

 

I've seen similar posts asking for fixes in the past, with the solution being to install certain drivers. I've followed those installations, but it still hasn't helped fix this.
