Enjoying video games for some time will trigger the audio to crackle / pop within the sport. Even operating a decrease demand sport like Battle Brothers whereas watching a video stream whereas trigger audio popping and crackling after some time. Working LatencyMon whereas the sport is operating can even present excessive DPC latency. Working LatencyMon when the pc simply begins up and nothing else is operating exhibits no issues.
After I take a look at job supervisor after operating a sport for some time, reminiscence (~60%), CPU (~30%), and GPU (~20%) utilization is regular/low.
Up to now I’ve additionally had issues the place operating video games for some time would make the sport crash, and it will repeatedly crash once more if I attempted to restart the sport. The issue would solely develop into mounted once I restarted my laptop. I used to be by no means capable of repair this drawback, and it nonetheless occurs sometimes, so it could be associated.

I ran memtest and obtained all exams passing (four cycles by all of the exams)
I attempted checking the BIOS, however there did not appear to be any OC settings I would made. Every little thing was set to auto, and the reminiscence frequencies matched what I noticed in memtest.
Modified to 44100 Hz and 16 bit and varied different sound bit fee settings

Tried completely different laptop ports and headphones
Even tried plugging headphones into ps4 controller which is plugged in by USB. This works at first, however finally that methodology additionally begins crackling/popping
Disabled Unique mode for sound
Ran LatencyMon, it exhibits excessive latency: https://i.imgur.com/CkBpT2k.png . Nevertheless I’m on the excessive efficiency energy plan, minimal processor state is ready to 100%, and I’ve by no means set and CPU throttling choices within the BIOS.
Disabled quick startup
Laptop is on excessive efficiency energy mode.
Rolled again audio drivers to Home windows default drivers (10.0.19041.264) as an alternative of RealTek, this did not work
