    Confirmed... still popping. And my Min processor state is still set to 100%.

    Didn't work.

    I did find this post on another forum and have been using it for 2 days with my volume up fairly loud all the time. And I have only heard 1-2 pops. At this volume I would normally have a pop about every 5 minutes. It seems to me that there is much less popping, but it still does happen.

    "I instead went to the “Advanced” tab, and figured that the audio driver couldn’t handle the extra quality. So I lowered the sound quality to “CD quality”. This did the trick!"

    I've solved the pops and crackles from Realtek chips, and others, by going to Control Panel Power Settings and setting 'Minimum processor state' to 100%. Not ideal, but serves as a workaround until they release better drivers.
    This DID NOT work for me.

    My eternal thanks!!!! Ever since I upgraded to 10 last summer I've been unable to listen to music on my computer — which I built primarily for that purpose. Updating/replacing/un- & re-installing drivers have had no effect whatsoever. I know my machine is old but that should have no effect on its ability to play music, especially smallish mp3 files.

    I agree that maxing out the processor isn't the optimal way to achieve it but at least for the time being I can ensure that the music I'm ripping from my vinyl collection is being done so accurately.

    Thanks so very much again!!!

    you've got another sincerely grateful person registering just to thank you. this was precisely the problem i've had for months. the min cpu was just the ticket and my pops and crackles have actually gone by changing just this setting to 50%. It was on 5% be default in the Balanced mode. I've kept all the other settings the same.

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    So as a quick addendum, this seemed to be half the answer in my case, as my Min Processor State was already at 100%, but tweaking with some other advanced power settings for battery use (ie Multimedia settings - When playing video - On) seemed to do the trick perfectly. (For now at least). Side note, this rubbish has doubled my on-battery power consumption, and for the Zenbooks already shitty power stats thats nothing to scoff at. Just beware

    I tried all the above recommendations, none worked for me.
    I ended buying a USB to 3.5mm adapter on Ebay for less than $4 bucks delivered, and to think I spent hours trying to change drivers and settings. No problems so far. Fingers crossed.

    What worked for me with Win 10 AU was uninstalling completely "Intel RST" drivers with its too aggressive power saving system.

    I just manually forced first std Windows 10 alternative drivers from Device Manager (beware! Do this FIRST or on next reboot you could experience the infamous "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE" blue screen error!), and then uninstalled Intel RST.
    This reduced the random popping/clicks/cracklings from speakers and subwoofer by 99% on my gaming laptop.
    All other suggested methods failed, including the registry power saving modification.

    EDIT:
    I can confirm this solution worked for me, after 1 entire week of testing. Good luck!
