    USB Soundcard issue since Windows 10 Creators Update

    Hello, I wonder if anyone could help me please.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop and I'm having USB soundcard issues, since updating to the creators. I have tried a couple of different USB cards one being an Asus U3 and the other being a cheaper USB soundcard "Ugreen". I bought the cheaper one, to see if it would have the same issues as the Asus and it does. It's not that they don't work, but rather I get these annoying crackle/pop type sounds randomly (A bit like the noise you'd hear as you play a Vinyl). I have tried searching for a new Asus driver and the one on their website is the same. I should also note I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both cards. This seems to temporarily stop the problem, but it returns. I would just use the Laptop internal sound, however that has a dodgy 3.5mm connection.

    If anyone has had this issue or knows how to fix it I would be grateful. Maybe unistalling the creators update might be the only way.

    Popping, crackling, etc has been a fairly common complaint back to Win 7 days. There is no "one fix" for it, except Wi-Fi is a known cause in many cases. Suggest you download and run the free Resplendence Latency Mon program as a first step. See what it says.
