Having problems with your Gateway MX6453 Notebook ?

Static on laptop speakers and headphone jack

\015 There is a static sound on both laptops speakers and headphone jack. Sound still works there is just a lot of static. This seems to worsen over time. The laptop is two years old. I want to know what part of the speaker system effects this. Or if anyone has an idea as to how to fix it. Would it be a case of a loose wire, water damage, rust? Yes there was a bit of water spilled on it once, computer had to be left to dry but everything worked well after. Could there be rust resulting from this? I hope it is a matter of a loose wire witch is easily fixed. I have not opened the laptop yet as I want more information before I do that.I want to try to fix it myself. I am not very skilled in this, but with research and a soldering iron I have fixed handhelds, a tv and other small electronics so I hope I can fix this if it is not expensive.

I am armymason, I am here to help resolve this issue. I think looking at the connectors would be a great start. should be simple to get to just a few screws to get the keyboard off then the speakers. check the connectors use nail file to clean terminals. My other solution is to check for updates for the sound card. maybe OS updates have caused data lose to the speakers. I would say chalk it up to wear and tear but you stated it happens on the air buds too. Might also wasnt to check on Manufacturers site to see if they have a bios update too. By the way water can cause other issues other than rust. it could be arking between two terminals causing the crackle sounds.
