hi,

as some of you may know i recently came across a dell d600 and swapped it with my aunt for an xbox 360 and now she is complaining that the speakers are making a crackling sound.

so i take it off her and listen and it almost sounds like some1 has a mic plugg in with bare wires the other end and are rubbing then together i dunno how else to explain it .

i look under a panel by the headphone and mic jack and there is a wire that is inside a plastic case but is not connected ?

i mean it only does it sometimes and playing music and things its fine.

so n e ideas could a driver problem do this ?

it even does it wen the laptop is dead still so im thinking its not hardware

Hello,

My name is Richard; I am part of Dell's Online Community Outreach. It would be a good idea to verify that the systems bios is up to date. The most recent version is A16, you can get it here, http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/format.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&deviceid=2816&libid=1&releaseid=R103802&vercnt=3&formatcnt=0&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=-1&impid=-1.

The audio drivers would also be a good thing to update, you can get that here, http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R90698&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2551&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=6&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=3&fileid=118248.

Good luck,
