    Yet another person that subscribed specifically to say "Thank you" in this thread.

    Even though my problem is not completely solved, I know I'm on the right path.

    I ordered an [inexpensive] USB to 3.5 mm audio output device tonight. Will report back when it gets here. I tried all the stuff people suggested in this thread and it did improve slightly. But it's far from solved. I get a "scratchy" sound which definately sounds like a latency problem.

    THANK YOU to Jack07 for providing the link to the LatencyMon tool!

    I was surprised I'm having any kind of CPU problem at all as I have a 12-core i7-3960X CPU monster desktop system with 64 GIG of RAM. Goes to show that throwing CPU POWER and RAM at a problem is not guarantee. Poorly written software is poorly written software and no amount of CPU cycles seems to be able to get around this badly written driver!

    Did you try this Windows 10 popping sound in speakers ? It solved the issue completely for me without additional "hacks".
    All other proposed fixes were ineffective (including registry editing for power management) and after some time the problem came back.
    The only working solution for me was uninstalling completely "Intel RST" drivers.

    Intel RST power management + Realtek power management = popping sound issues.

    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.
    I joined this forum specifically just to THANK YOU. You're the man!!!

    I went to Device Manager - Network Adapters, selected properties of wireless connection and disabled Bluetooth(R) AMP. That solved the problem for me. You might disable Ad Hoc QoS Mode as well. Good luck!

    I solved the problem by going to Device Manager and uninstalling the Realtek device AND driver (make sure to click the checkbox to delete the driver from the system as well). Restart the PC immediately and it will install a Generic HD sound driver after rebooting. Also not ideal but it worked and the clicking stopped. In a few minutes, Windows updated the driver to a Realtek HD Audio driver and stil no clicking.

    Easiest way to check the clicking is to run a program or installer that brings up UAC. For me, UAC caused a loud click everytime.

    Hey everyone

    Maybe it's a little bit late but here is solution

    The sound chipset powers down after a specified time of inactivity to save power. This causes the popping noise and the high-pitched tone in the headphone jack. This can be configured in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Realtek\RAVCpl64\PowerMgnt.

    The settings there are as follows:
    DelayTime - time in seconds of inactivity which triggers powering down the sound chipset. Default is 10.
    Enabled - enables the power management. Default is 0. Set to 1 to disable and always prevent these noises.
    OnlyBattery - If power management is enabled, setting this to 1 will disable power management when the laptop is plugged in. The popping noises will only be heard when the laptop is on battery power, but this helps conserve power so the battery lasts longer.

    Hello, just my experience : having upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 without clean install, I recently experienced very annoying noise cracking, only after system has been running for a while. Responsible was old Intel stuff : (from "windows command prompt") just go into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel" folder, and look at what is installed there. Providing you know what you are doing, just uninstall everything unuseful entering into each local uninstall folder and running "setup.exe -uninstall" : this saved my system!

    I already had the same kind of thing with an old remaining Msn Toolbar (symptom = high disk activity).

    Alternatively, you could do a Windows 10 clean install or refresh, but you would at least loose installed softwares in both cases, so reinstall could be a looong and painful task.

    Hope this will help!

    NB : Before doing so, please always backup your system!

    Nice! I knew it was some type of timeout when it would happen. I got an HP laptop and just installed Win 10 CU from scratch. The default audio drivers make a pop when the audio starts. I've even tried downloading drivers from Realtek on a different computer which didn't work. It's easy for me to test this issue, I just click the volume slider to trigger a sound, wait 10 seconds and try again.

    My keys are in; HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Realtek\Audio\RtkNGUI64\PowerMgnt
    Enabled has no affect. Does nothing for me even after a reboot. My default was actually a 1.
    I had to set OnlyBattery to 1. Although this worked for AC power, on battery this had no affect, still popped as you stated.
    So I also set DelayTime to 1800 (30 minutes). That worked okay on battery too. I tried 7200 (2 hrs), but I think was too high.

    Anyway, thanks for this suggestion which seems to work. For me setting the CPU Power had no affect.
