I seem to get random static noise while on my PC. It mostly happens when switching between application but can also be at random times.

I thought it was my headphones but now it happens on any speaker/headphone and its starting to get annoying because its always rather loud.

I have updated windows, drivers, and updated any application i have open and i have no idea what is causing it.

Hi BTP,

your system specs might help? (make & model + motherboard). :)

First thing I'd check is the cable connection of speakers.....make sure the jack is fully inserted and seated.

I'm not sure, but sometimes, the main cause of static noise on your headphones could be having corrupt or outdated drivers. First of all, have you tried to update your driver? If you have done it, but you still face the problem, then please follow this method:
1. Open Regedit by pressing Windows + R and type "Regedit" > enter.
2. Navigate to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36fc9e60-c465-11cf-8056-444553540000}
(Just copy paste it to the navigation bar).
3. Search for "UpperFilters" and then delete it.
4. Close Regedit > restart your computer.
(NB: Reinstall your driver after restarting your computer)

Various possibilities cause this thing. You can try to change the audio format or disable all sounds effects, too at Control Panel > Hardware & Sound. If these methods do not take any effect on yours, then It could be your hardware problem (Try to replug your Power Supply or use another one).

Is it on the back of the PC or on the front?, try moving the adapter around to the front USB and see if that helps!. Also, check the level of the mic, try lowering it to about 50%. :)
