I took the laptop back to the computer store. I hope the problem shows up when they check it out. They told me if it does they may have to replace the mother board which has the sound card on it. Or they may just switch to a different laptop.

Hello Vaughn:

I think the sound card with which this person is having a problem, is the
sound card on their motherboard.

If that is the case, the only way they could change the sound card is, to
purchase a USB sound Card or, use a USB or Bluetooth headset.

This sounds like a pysical problem. I have JAWS and Duxbury and do not
have this issue. I, too, find this disturbing. What about replacing
the sound card?

Hello, As some of you may know I had the static problem when Jaws
was able to stop this from occurring by disabling enhancements under the
sound card. I just installed Duxbury software for sending text to my
printer. When in Duxbury the static was back. I went into word and it was
static like it was before. Now it is not just when typing, it is all the
time. I closed out of everything and rebooted. The static noise went
went into word and there was no static. I then went into Duxbury and the
static came back. I checked enhancements under the sound card and it was
still disabled. Now what? Is there something on the internet that gives
ratings for sound cards?
