Question Razer Kraken TE Completely Stops Working in Any GPU-Intensive app.

Oct 30, 2020
So I've been having this issue for a few weeks now. It started with the audio getting distorted, crackling and popping, and my microphone picking up a very strong buzzing. I've tried everything I could think of:
  • Reinstalled USB Drivers
  • Reinstalled Audio drivers
  • Uninstalled Synapse (Razer Software)
  • Checked BIOS
  • Tried using different ports
  • Tried a USB hub
  • Tried changing sound format and permissions
I'm all out of ideas. I have checked every bit of what I could find and it hasn't gotten better. Now the sound just completely cuts out after I boot up a game (EX: COD: MW (2019) - After booting into menu I have audio but once I go into the lobby I get a cackling/popcorn sound and everything cuts out). I have no clue why this is happening and how to fix it.
