Microsoft Windows 11

Hello. I’m having a serious issue with my audio on my HP laptop. I’ve owned this laptop for a little while now, but I’ve started hearing this crackling, static noise at random times while playing audio. Super annoying. I have Windows 11 and I’ve tried updating the Realtek drivers, turning off audio enhancements, running a troubleshooter, but nothing has worked. I’ve changed my driver update to the “High Definition Audio” instead of a Realtek driver, but it causes my volume to be reduced, and it’s a much lower sound quality. It DOES get rid of the crackling though. Also, I cannot open the B&O audio app with this driver installed. So, has anyone found a way to fix this issue, while maintaining the better quality of the Realtek drivers? Thanks, in advance.

I downloaded the appropriate file from the link you provided. I selected the new update in device manager, but it still has static noise from the speakers. I thought this fixed it for a while, but I was wrong and it's still crackling. Can anyone help? This is SO annoying.
