Danishblunt , Jun 15, Then one day when I was lifting up the laptop while a movie was playing I noticed the distortion went away. Please keep the discussions civil. There are other places for that. Share This Page Tweet. Alienware’s official Support Forum. I’ve no idea how but one day my sounds became very shitty distorting, sizzling sound, cracks when playing normal music etc.

I had bad crackling and distortion from my left speaker in my 17 R4 and I tried a few of the software fixes I googled with no success.
Want to add to the discussion? I do this aalienware every computer I use. Dell does not support Windows 10 on my version of the laptop. However, if some of the other users verify the solution, then I would recommend it for you. I don’t really want to reformat it as it’s a hassle.
Gayle Lee FairlessJun 15, All other aspects of the 17R4 worked just fine. RaidriarJun 15, Grant B Gibson Dec 3, I just tried reinstalling the Realtek driver uninstalling and reinstalling from Realtek’s website. I went so far as to reinstall the HD and the audio problem remained.

Alienware’s Official Facebook page. They changed something in the sound drivers awhile back and the drivers originally came with my 17R4 sound much better then new drivers.
I ended up taking the laptop apart and I placed thin strips of foam with tape on one side audi both sides of the of both speakers. DanishbluntNov 27,in forum: You mean in the windows uninstall program its not there. Does anyone have a solution? It also helps for shows and movies where the action is super loud and the dialog is quiet.
I am pretty sure it was a capacitor on the MB, i. MY problem was most certainly hardware related. Kepler gen 1 like M work without any problem, I have spare if you are interested. Please no selling in this 1m7x Become a Redditor and subscribe to one of thousands of communities.
For some reason I can’t find it in the ‘uninstall’ list but I do have the app. Probably not what you want to hear.
I wonder if reinstalling Windows 7, if you have it, along with the installation of the proper drivers would be the cure. I also tried installing idt audio drivers from the Dell website that’s supposed to be for this laptop when I heard I just needed to install the audio drivers after I install the graphics card in it but drivers were not compatible with win 10 soo Zudio starting to think it just might be it. I’ve added a video on how it sounds. Do you already have an account? There are other places for that.
Raidriar Nov 27, Dell’s Diagnostic found nothing wrong, SupportAssist tested that the sound cards are fine.
