There's a small issue I've been experiencing in the past few days. Sometimes when I'm playing audio, there will be glitches that sound like pops or crunches - similar to the sound you can hear while inserting or removing headphones. I thought the problem may have just been my audio jack, but when I removed my headphones the audio was still glitching. It's not a particularly severe issue, more of just an annoyance - especially with the unpredictable nature of the issue.
I tried turning off Dolby Audio, but that didn't work. I tried different audio settings, that also didn't work. I tried to update my RealTek drivers but windows tells me that the driver is up to date.
I haven't damaged the hardware and I don't have any other issues whatsoever. At first I thought it could have been a heat-related issue, but I've checked the CPU and GPU temps during these episodes and the temps are in the 40C range, so not particularly hot.
Any help would be appreciated!
