I operate a 2 year old notebook using windows 7. Lately the sound is broken up, (cuts in & out), sometimes garbled and slow, and at times it's ok.
I have tried YouTube, my own music, any sound system, seems to be bad.
Almost feels like the old fashioned electrical short circuit problem

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Try downloading and installing the latest audio drivers from the manufacturer's website of your laptop.

What make/model of computer is this and I will try to find you a link?

It's HP mini 210 – 1076NR
I don't have the slightest clue how to do this, but will give it my best shot.
Thank you for your help, it's appreciated.

Possible problems with audio lead used (tried another?) try wiggling to see if you can pin point where abouts the hairline crack is, or it could be an end as well.

Latest and manufacturer in same sentence is quite a paradox when it comes to drivers. They always have the drivers that are shipped with laptops.

Just checked HP's site and they have 32-bit drivers from 2010-07-02 and none for 64-bit Windows 7.

Unfortunately there are no drivers at IDT's site for your sound chip's model (IDT High-Definition Audio 92HD80B1)

With and w/o head phones.

I downloaded HP audio driver update, still the same.
Now my Windows Media Player won't work.

I also note the sound isn't as bad when using iTunes.

Any YouTube or my music is crackly, almost as if power were being turned on and off. I have tried with and without the battery, no difference.
