wonder if something in the update is causing this.
The reason is a changed power management default setting in the snd_hda_intel driver in kernel 5.0, maybe we didn't state that clearly enough above. You can go back to kernel 4.15, or apply the fix I posted above.

I have the same issue after upgrade to 19.3.
Any solution found?
Your options are to go back to the 4.15 kernel series or to disable power management for Intel's HDA driver:

Code: Select all

sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf <<<'options snd-hda-intel power_save=0'
(takes effect on reboot)
Thanks gm10. Just updated Mint 19.2 to 19.3 and the kernel to v.5. Found the same speaker popping problem. Solved using your power management disable ploy. :D

I guess it depends on hardware, but the solution at this link fixed my popping problem and there is also a link in the solution to a youtube video for further explanation and is worth a watch ... https://superuser.com/questions/1493096 ... ew-seconds
Thank you so much for this fix!
This "little" bug killed my sound bar.

If running cat /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save in the terminal returns with 1, then you want to run the command. Otherwise, it's a different issue for you. And Nvidia HTML audio still uses the snd-hda-intel driver.

Hi there, first post :) ... disabling power mgmt for Intel HDA driver doesn't help for me in particular. My issue is the popping noise (EXTREME through my plugged in speakers) occurs only on startup, after bios, before login, right around when the big green M is in the centre of screen

I've had similar issues in windows before, but this is the most extreme version I've ever come across. I'm dual booted with Win 10, on a dell XPS 13 9730 running Mint 19.3

Plz help! Of course I can switch off speakers around bootup and reboot, but if I forget I lose some hearing. I need audio dead *before* login

Cheers, any help much appreciated
