Crackling Sound on Debian Jessie

Postby Mooman » 2015-09-19 18:52

HI guys,
So whenever I start-up and after I enter my passphrase for cryptsetup (before login manager) I hear this crackling sound from my speakers constantly throughout usage.
While watching a movies or playing Youtube videos it's less noticeable, but when I'm typing up or working it really gets frustrating.
I've had this problem for weeks and it's been driving me nuts.

I've tried to figure out if pulseaudio was the culprit. uninstalled and rebooted yet crackling and pops continued.

I haven't yet altered or messed around with ALSA or snd_hda_intel driver.
But I did notice while using Audio Mixer, muting the speakers section stopped the crackling :/

So I guess the problem lies with Alsa or snd_hda_intel or both?
