So your Asus laptops produce cracking noise?

I bought a N55SF and after a while I noticed a disturbing stream of cracking noise which really bothers me. Not only it cracks in the speakers but it also cracks in my headphones. And while I thought that this problem only occurs on my laptop, but I also found out that it happens on other Asus laptops series too.

After wandering in Lowyat forum for a while, I found out a forumer posted a pretty simple solution. But the fix is only viable if you are not using the RJ45 ethernet jack. If you are using Wifi then yeap, just do it!

As simple as that? No warranty needed
  1. Go to Device Manager, either from control panel or simply type it in your Start Search.
  2. Find the device under the category of Network Adapters, make sure you choose the Gigabit Ethernet Controller like the one in le photo.
  3. Right click and DISABLE it. Voila!

If you want to use the ethernet jack again, all you have to do, is follow steps 1 and 2, and at the third step, click ENABLE.
