Please perform a clean install Audio software/driver, this should help.


     (a) Download the following driver and save on your computer,
                  https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp142501-143000/sp142821.exe

     (b) Go to Device Manager, Sound to uninstall sound driver (Realtek) and reboot,
     (c) Right click downloaded file and select Run as administrator,
     (d) Reboot again.

Cracking sound on laptop since I installed the new driver 142821. The new driver worked for a short moment, but then now does a cracking sound. Opened a new post for this.
