Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop ?

Speakers work but crackle when in use with my dell 8300

\015 The speakers have been tested on a separate computer and do not make a crackling sound. They do crackle when plugged into the back of the tower.\015

Answers :

Most likely this is because of a loose socket. Check to see if there's any dust or debris inside the audio socket(s). If cleaning it/them out doesn't work, then the socket is loose and the only way to fix the problem would be to get the sound-card repaired or buy a new sound-card.

It's my opinion that buying a new sound-card would be cheaper. You can find a good amount of them at this website. Simply navigate to Computer Hardware>Input Devices. Now on the left click, "Sound Cards." Watch out, though. There's a link labeled, "Sound Card Accessories." However, it doesn't lead you to the same page.

Let me know if I can assist you further or if I need to explain anything mentioned above in more detail.
