Sound on my laptop is fucked
Hi, soz if this forum isn't for like general advice etc, just thought I'd throw this out there as it's been pissing me off for ages now.
The sound on my laptop (Samsung RV520) has been fucked for months. When it loads up, it'll be fine for a wee while, but then it'll start to buzz and crackle etc. It's worst when I'm trying to do 2 things at once, eg. load a webpage while listening to music/watching a show. For the duration of the loading, the sound will distort like an old Dialup modem, rendering whatever I'm doing unlistenable.
The only way I've been able to sort of reset it back to normal is to log off/log on or reboot, but it's minutes, sometimes instantly, before it's back to its old tricks. So does anyone know why it's doing this? Any advice for how to cut it out? I hope it doesn't mean like my sound card is fucked or something, I know nothing about computers and am dead broke, so I can't afford to start replacing components or whatever that needs.
