I have a new IdeaPad Y560 and it is driving me nuts. I am really disappointed. The sound constantly crackles and stutters. I have sent it back to Lenovo once and they told they replaced the sound card. No good. I telephoned Lenovo Support and they advised it was a motherboard static issue and they talked me through the static discharge procedure - power off, unplug, remove the battery, and hold down the power button for 15 seconds. This fixed the problem - for a few minutes, then the crackling and popping started again. Any ideas on how to fix ? Should I remove the battery when not needed ? I almost always have the notebook on my desk connected to power.

dude - i got the same with anonther rig of mine - oem redesing is not a part of selling - that does it look to me - in short term - i do let ms do it. And who can tell any other things about it - it works - an SPDIF interface has been established in the soundvol mixer bar.
Means in fact - generic driver hacking from ms does work -
yeeeehaaa - i do love it - better then the rest -
installed os - device is ready -
so, to your needs ... reinstall the OS and it works - MSOS is a compiling OS - it does it very well -
do not mess arround with the stars

I have a similar problem with my Lenovo Y560 which I purchased in Nov 2010. I did not realise it till recently when I wanted to use the Headphone jact to connect to an external Sound System. The Noise is prominent and unberable over a period of time. I tried all the solutions mentioned in this thread to reload the Realtek drivers but the problem persisted.
I think this is more of an Hardware Sheilding problem than a driver issue. I have noticed when the Power adapter is turned off or disconnected from the Laptop, this Noise is totally eliminated in the external Speakers. Also when I reboot with the Power Adapter On, the humming Noise starts right when windows start relaoding even before the Sound card drivers could have been loaded.
I also tried with a universal Laptop adapter with similar rating, and the problem was gone. So my conclusion is Lenovo gave us all a bad Laptop Adapter and they need to change it, as it was a lemon product.

In my case with mine y570 this sound almost goes away when wifi is disabled. I also thought that it's hardware, but there are several facts which are telling that it can be fixed by software. First of all, windows native drivers in which pc beep can be disabled solve the problem, and also in ubuntu/macos I don't have this problem.

Having this problem to.
I'm looking for the version of the driver that you mention.
Leshcat where exactly is this "PC Beep" function, is it on speaker properties of windows or on the properties from the driver?
