Just installed Win 7 x64 on my Lenovo y500 and I am getting sound crack issue. Whenever I am playing something, the sound is getting cracked.

Already installed latest audio drivers.

Any fix ?

Re: Audio Cracking in Lenovo y500

Hi Guddu2k17 , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


Would the same cracking noise be heard using an external speaker or earphone?

Try to isolate if the issue comes on left , right ,or both speakers on the laptop. 


Download offered realtek driver from the support site (place it on the desktop but not to install it yet -sample).

Try to fully uninstall current drivers from the device manager and place a check mark on the box to fully remove the driver. Restart the machine and allow native Windows driver to automatically install. Check the audio again.


If same issue , reinstall the previously downloaded audio driver and observe. 

You can also try playing audio while booted on a live rescue image to check if the issue is OS related.


Update us how it goes.
