So I've noticed this for a few weeks now, and I'm not sure what to do about it. If I'm playing any audio (be it through my laptop's speakers or through connected earbuds,) I'll occasionally hear popping sounds, and there's no specific rhythm to it from what I can tell. It's mostly when I'm playing audio that has breaks between sounds (like a TV series or anime where there are spaces between lines of dialogue,) so if I play something like a rock song, I usually can't hear the popping. I've already tried upgrading my audio drivers, but that hasn't seemed to help. If it's relevant, the audio drivers are Realtek High Definition Audio with a driver date of 5/20/2014, but I installed the newest ones from this site like last week: http://www.asus.com/us/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/G550JK/HelpDesk_Download/ Am I maybe doing something wrong?
