Windows 7: Audio Popping/Crackling/Static Windows 7 x64 on Asus f50 Series

Audio Popping/Crackling/Static Windows 7 x64 on Asus f50 Series

Hello 7 forums,

I'm having an issue with my audio that is driving me up a wall. I'm having that (apparently common) issue of crackling/popping/static-y audio on a Realtek chip. I've tried multiple drivers, from Realtek official to Generic to Vista ones. My latency graph has little to no spiking too! (A problem most people identified in the previous megathread). I know this is a solvable issue because previously I've had it under control. It was just so long ago and I've forgotten...

Anyways, does anyone know how I can fix this? It's making me so sad.

Stats as follows:
Asus f50sf
Nvidia GT220m
4gb RAM
Win 7 Pro x64
Core 2 Duo 2.53ghz
Realtek HD Audio Driver
Hardware ID for Soundcard:

Bios, video card, and OS are up to date. If you need any other information I can get it.

Also, even if you are unsure of a solution, post it. I will try anything at this point.

I'm having the same issue, I believe so at least. Quite randomly, at about 5 to 10 second intervals, the sound will cut out with a pop which lasts for 1/4 of a second and carries on.

I 'fixed' it briefly last night by reverting all of my Realtek Sound drivers to Windows drivers, but when I turned on the computer this morning, the problem was back.

Crackling and popping audio.
Hi all; Question about the audio on my laptop. Have any of you ever experienced "popping" during audio playback? It says the drivers are working ok. It never threw a code or anything. Any suggestions, ideas as to goings on?
