Hey guys, managed to resolve this problem by replacing the original SSD.

 

Bit of backstory: Windows started crashes/freezing at random times. I noticed that this would sometimes happen after a 100% spike on the SSD, and the BSOD error codes seemed to support the theory that the SSD was broken.

 

I ordered a replacement SSD, reinstalled Windows and after a week no desync/crackling has occured on my laptop which before the new SSD did.

 

To anyone who has an SSD from the company SKHynix, I would recommend testing a replacement NVME SSD or installing Windows on a partition of the 1TB HDD to test if the desync/crackling still occurs.

Even when it was crashing, S.M.A.R.T. reported that it's health was 100% - this obviously wasn't true since as soon as I replaced the SSD the crashing & desync/crackling stopped. I know it's quite some effort, but if you have the time to test, just run Windows from a partition of your HDD and you'll know for sure.

Hmm, It would make sense. I've got Hynix SSD and when my laptop was in the service where they replaced my SSD with their own and there weren't any desyncs or cracklings.

They also said it was my fault because of bad drivers. I'm installing W10 again on my HDD and will back with feedback.

Installed W10, then drivers from Lenovo site using bridge, and then updated using Vantage.

Sometimes after clean install, desync wasn't appeared immediately but after couple of hours, but there were always crackling right after the format. Now, I couldn't notice any crackling moment while listening music on spotify. Desync has also gone. I'll test it more.

Is it possible there's issue related to incompatibility motherboard or drivers with Hynix SSD? Is this our root cause?

Same with me. It only happens after installing some drivers. That's why I thought it maybe the Lenovo Vantage Service.

It works. I dont have desync and crackling so we can assume the root cause is in SSD. I'll go back to my Hynix SSD because working on HDD is terrible...
