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!
- Go to Device Manager, either from control panel or simply type it in your Start Search.
- Find the device under the category of Network Adapters, make sure you choose the Gigabit Ethernet Controller like the one in le photo.
- 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.
