Help! Lenovo Y700 Static noise when playing games only through headset

Every time I load up a game I can always hear a static noise through my headset. Can anyone help me solve this problem?

 

It is a brand new gaming computer.

Re: Help! Lenovo Y700 Static noise when playing games only through headset

Hi there, Baracka        -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

I might also suggest checking with headphones to see if the sound operates normally with headphones.  If not, then it is likely the driver, or the audio chip (but more likely the drivers).

 

If it works fine with headphones, but not speakers, then maybe there is a pinched wire shorting out the speakers.

In that case, I would contact service - they should be able to fix it and would be able to identify what the problem turned out to be.  If it is just one or two random cases, then perhaps exchange makes sense.  

 

Update us how it goes.

I exchanged the dekstop however it still does the noise. I have a GTX 1070 and it was already installed into the computer.

Try uninstalling the realtek driver. It reverts back to the windows driver, which seems just as good or better than the realtek one.
