Hello, I need help with an issue I can't get to fix.
Basically, when I connect my earphones to my laptop, even without listening to music or anything, I hear static noise, and when I play music it's heavily distorted.
If I use the same earphones on my desktop computer they work just fine, same on my smartphone.
If I use a headset on the laptop, it works just fine. If I use different earphones on the laptop, I get the same problem.
I tried disabling audio enhancements, disabling microphone, unplugging mouse and power cord, searching for divers but the latest ones are installed.

I hope someone can help me. :)
 
NOTE: It is quiet normal for heaphones plugged into a computer, or other device, when not playing any kind of sounds, to have a static like sound on them.

Here are some things to try.

1. Make sure that the wires for your headphones do not come into contact with other wires going in and out of the computer. Anything it touches that can have any kind of electrical current can cause noise in the headphones.

2. Try a different headphone jack, if you have more than one.

3. Upgrade your headphones. All recorded audio has a degree of noise or static; how obvious it is to the listener depends on the quality of the media it’s recorded on, the playback technology and the listening device. Replacing your headphones with a noise-reducing or noise-canceling set could clear up the problem.

4. Worst case, if the problem happens with multiple headphones, you may need to replace the sound card.
