The title pretty much says it all. I've tried adjusting the gain with alsamixer to no avail. I am dual-booting alongside Windows 10 if that is relevant.

  • I had a similar issue to this on a Dell Precision model. It turned out to be a setting in tlp that was powering down the audio card when not actively being used to save power, but it caused significant static when nothing else was playing. Turning that feature of tlp off resolved it for me. To clarify: does the static happen all the time, just when playing audio, or just when not playing audio? Dec 19 '19 at 19:10
