Sound quality crackle

hey, i have an advent 9115 laptop and have recently installed windows 7 32bit

i firstly installed 64bit thinking it could handle it but experienced bad cracking from the audio with everything (video, music, windows sounds)

i have a realtek high definition audio card.

i have tried installing different versions including the newest update and older versions for vista. (and have rebooted twice)

ive heard alot of different threads on different forums from people who are experiencing the same issuse on different laptop models and manufacturers but to no luck have i found any help. ive been led to beleive from some posts it may be some conflicting issue with the os and something.

any help will be MUCH appreciated, thanks

Install the newest update for the audio driver.

Update your mainboard bios and test under "optimized default settings" or similar. If no update, set bios to that now.

Further suggestions if needed, will assume the above conditions have been met. If that hasn't helped any, we can try to take things from this starting point.

Right click on the specific audio device in the device manager. Properties. Details tab. Change dropdown to hardware ids.

Copy and paste the results to here. I can probably find something for it.

Also, are you using x86 or x64 Windows?

Disable any kind of CPU throttle software that's for the motherboard. You can look in bios for something like this or it also could be a software that you have starting with Windows.

If this doesn't help, I'm working on making a driver install for you guys. I'll post it soon.

I don't know about your bios but you can look at software starting with Windows.

Go to the start menu and type in there ---> msconfig.

Hit enter, then go to startup tab. Uncheck whatever software is for your motherboard then hit ok and reboot.

If you want me to modify a driver, download the first one here (need to use IE) and then upload to Rapidshare. Post a link here for it after. I can't get it to download for me right now for some reason.

Sound quality while using webcam
Is it normal that my sound quality gets a lot worse after I start a videocall in MSN with my friends? The sound gets lower (which is normal, if I'm right) but the quality also gets a lot worse. It gets somewhat muddy, the bass goes worse and so does the treble. Is there some way to fix this?...
