I have had the Predator PH315-53 helios for just 2 months, and im now getting this issue with the speaker crackling when i play videos and on you tube ect.its really annoying and i have read on another site probably a software issue with this model.im highly frustrated as i love the laptop , except these issues regarding the speakers and high temps when idle and gaming are frustrating to say the least.Im serously considering taking it back and getting a refund as the more i look into it its a common problem.
[Edited the thread to add model name]
FAQ & Answers
I have a similar problem, sometimes in some high volume videos the audio crackles and hisses. Very random, seems to depend on audio quality and audio type.
Which model? Also, when did you purchase it?
