W541 static noise

2018-11-05, 18:40 PM

Hello community and thanks in advance for any help you might provide me,


I have been having a static noise issue ongoing since I own my Lenovo W541 laptop. Whenever I unmute the laptop speaker I have a low but constant hissing noise. Nothing loud enough to drive me nuts but noticeable whenever I am in a quite room.

This hissing noise comes from the speakers even when I plug my earphones. Sound quality for music from the speakers and the earphones is excellent but I find the static noise very annoying when no music or audio is playing. Whenever I notice this noise I tend to mute my laptop to stop hearing it.


I've tried everything (I think):

1. Uninstalled and installed Realtek drivers

2. Changed the drivers from Realtek to Windows

3. Updated both Windows and Realtek drivers


If anyone has a solution please let me know. I am unfortunately out of warranty now :(.
