Windows 7: Speaker Static

Speaker Static

My speakers make static noise when something loud is played. I don't mean loud like ear bursting loud. This started happening randomly today. It's very annoying when trying to watch a video on youtube. Do you think this is a case of speaker failure or something more serious? I hope it's just my speakers because I can just easily replace them. I don't have an extra pair of speakers to test the sound.

Also, the static doesn't happen all the time. If I don't play anything for a bit and resume a video, it goes back to normal.

Here's what I know so far about the problem:

  1. Doesn't happen in XP, only happens in Win 7 x64
  2. Can play a loud game like Modern Warfare 2 and no static, but static starts when a youtube video is played
  3. Static only occurs when CPU usage is at 50% or more
  4. The higher the CPU usage, the louder the static is
  5. Problem persists after a clean install

I just checked the website for your computer and they have no drivers for Windows 7.
Did you check with the MS Advisor to see if your system would properly run under Windows 7 64bit?

You still using the onboard audio? Realtech version 6.0.1.5436 ? 12/11/2008?
Maybe try installing the vister version.

I did check a while ago and everything was satisfactory. I've been running Win 7 x64 for months now without any speaker problems which strikes me odd. I'll try the sound on XP and report back.

Well, I can't replicate the problem on XP. It could be a Windows 7 problem. Like I said earlier, the static is random.

Edit: Getting the static now on Win 7. I have the latest audio drivers.

It looks like this is a Windows 7 x64 problem as it is only happening on Windows 7 x64 and works just fine in XP.

What is running in the background that used 50% of CPU?
Are you running an MP3 file or a CD for music or what?

A clean install did not fix the problem.

The attachment is what I usually have running.

Hello,

I was just having this same problem while trying to study (listening to reading lectures, so it was very annoying)
I am using on board sound, but noticed in Device Manager it was using the standard Windows/Microsoft HD audio bus. I installed the drivers and it was still the same.
I then Uninstalled the device entirely from Device Manager, and then allowed Windows to re-discover the device.
Amazingly the problems are gone, sounds fine now!
This is Windows 7 Enterprise x86. I have x64 at home and the same problem (pretty much same hardware) and will be attempting the same fix there later tonight.

Try blowing the device away in Device Manager under Sound, Video and Game Controllers, and then doing a 'Scan for Hardware Change' and see if the problem corrects itself.

worked for me
