The crack noise come up the most when there is a system audio or a remainder from social media such as sound from facebook. Temporary pop up

I installed the patch several days ago and I am still getting this noise. It almost always randomly comes when typing in Firefox. Actually it happened twice when I was typing this message.

It is a week since I installed the new driver on my P70 and I have not heard the sound at all in that time.  I do not use firefox.

Re: P50/P70 sound issue - "pop/crack" and then normal

I've noted that while the Realtek HD Audio Driver update, v 6.0.1.774 resolved audio popping on ThinkPad P50 and P70 laptops for 8 customers, three customers (two active members plus one monitoring) report it has not been resolved.

 

I have arranged for one of the ThinkPads still demonstrating audio popping to be brought in and investigated. This will happen in the next week.

 

When additional information becomes available, I will post again. I am leaving the Realtek HD Audio Driver release statement marked as a solution to assist new customers coming into the discussion with finding the first known solution while the second is determined.

 

Thank you,

Hi, I am facing similar issues for my P50 after the update. Popping sound is still present but the occurence is unpredictive. It can happen a few times within 5 mins or a few times in 5 hours.

 

However, something to note is that after the fix, the same number of occurence may happen within a longer duration of runtime.

 

Hope to hear favorable news from the Lenovo team.

I found a way to reliably replicate that sound that I am hearing on the P50 even after installing the new driver.

 

When booted into Windows 10, hold down the following keys:

1. Windows Key

2. Right arrow key - the one located below the shift key, not on the numpad

3. While continuing to hold down the above two keys, repeatedly tap the left arrow below the shift key and the sound will be heard.

 

Edit: I have since noticed a lot of 3-key combinations cause the noise when using the same procedure as above:

ERT

RTY

TYU

YUI

DFG

FGH

GHJ

HJK

and many others...

 

But strangely, some similar 3-key combinations do NOT cause the noise:

QWE

WER

UIO

IOP

ASD

SDF

JKL
