Crackling noise in Audio Speakers
I have legacy Intel motherboard DG965WH based assembled PC.
It worked fine with Windows xp, and Widows 7 and associated audio drivers.
After update to Windows 10 latest build, audio speaker output has either no sound or only hissing noise or crackling noise or intermittent sound with crackles in the background. I tried installing OEM's Audio driver (IDT) downloaded from Intel's web site. No improvement. Speaker-set works fine with other system.
It is pertinent to mention that Audio output on a USB head-set with Windows 10 is fine.
My question : Whether it is a driver problem with Windows 10, latest build being incompatible, or a hardware failure of on-board audio components for Jack output.
Any help would be appreciated.
Is this a good question?
