Fresh install on the XPS, ElementaryOS only, no Windows. If I try and play music I just get white noise. If I alter any of the volume knobs a blip of white noise plays after (I assume this is down to sound that would play after adjusting). Essentially any noise is replaced by white noise!

  • Does this happen with speakers, headphones, or both? – Ryan DeBeasi Dec 28 '16 at 14:24
  • Speakers produce white noise, headphones produce no sound at all by the looks of it! – Kriss Dec 28 '16 at 15:07

For anyone else having this exact same issue, I just performed a BIOS update on my XPS 13 which completely fixed the issue.
