Popping noise when starting up and shutting down

Post by SpeedyWheels222 » Mon Jun 25, 2018 10:45 am

Whenever I start up or shut down the machine, it makes a loud popping sound I'm running Linux Mint 18.3, however it seems to do it with all distros.
Is there any way of stopping it.
I have a OMEN pc.
Thanks

Could it be your speakers (internal or external)? I get that from my sound card, and haven't found a way to stop it except for turning off the external amplifier.
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
Your data and OS are backed up....right?

if this popping sound comes on before the grub menu then your hardware is the issue. what's an OMEN pc?

Mute your speakers. See if you still hear the sound. I had a laptop that would do this, related to audio.
