Speakers Crackling since Windows 10 update

BuddiParker asked on
I just updated to Windows 10. Since updating my speakers have started making a small crackling sound. They didn't do that when I had Windows 8.1. Just started doing it once I got the update. I have went in and did all of the troubleshooting that I can. Also went into Device Manager and updated the sound driver. Neither of those helped. Not sure what else I could do besides maybe trying to uninstall the sound driver and letting windows reinstall it on it's own? If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks

I managed to resolve this problem by resetting the Default Audio settings in the Dell Audio application on my laptop. I reduced the settings to CD and DVD Quality. The sound is now working with no crackling.
