    I have a XPS m1330 that is roughly a year and a half old, running windows vista. Recently it has been making an annoying clicking or "popping" sound that comes from the speakers. Every twenty to thirty seconds, there is a single (occasionally double) audible pop/click sound played out of the speakers. I am fairly certain that this not a hard drive issue, because the noise seems to stop when the laptop is muted and also when i use headphones or plug my laptop into external speakers, the noise stays, just comes through said headphones or speakers. Ive tried closing all open programs but this does no good. Please help! :mad::mad::mad::confused:

    I saw on another forum that someone thought this may be related to wireless devices creating interference. Any thoughts on this or a way to test for it.

    It is true that wireless devices may be causing interference, and that would in fact be my first guess.

    But in the event that it isn't this, I'd suggest reinstalling your audio drivers. But that's really the best I can do for you. Again, my first guess is the wireless interference.

    As far as a way to test for it? Take your laptop far away from anything like a cell phone, microwave, etc.
