Let me know what the Type Numeric Number and Model Number on the bottom of the laptop is. I can look on IBM website and see where the hard drive is in located to the speaker. It has happen on some HP and Toshiba I know from experience where the hard drive causes the speakers to crackle. Not sure why, maybe not enough shielding. The type has 4 Numeric Characters and the Model has 3 Alpha/Numeric Characters.

Let me know
