I ran with the Windows one because I disliked MaxxAudio. I know that, at least for the using the official Realtek driver, a BSOD can result if “00” is used.
Once you’ve finished these steps, reboot your computer. Once you have verified that you have the correct key, find the “PowerSettings” folder under “” from the filepath above. Now THAT, was dumb. These keys essentially define the delay after a sound signal has ceased before deactivating the sound card. God, I spent months trying to get rid of popping, skipping, cutting out Submit a new link.
That’s ridiculous that the maaxxaudio has a timeout of few seconds. Is there a similar solution on the XPS 13 ? Other users have pointed to Dell’s very poor implementation of a power-saving strategy on the sound card as a culprit for these audio issues. It’s this second step where Dell drops the ball. For direct contact with Dell please see the “General Support” section below.
I’ll link his post below. No offensive, hateful, or low-effort comments. Also, on that same note, do you think your BSOD was a result of the 00 value with the Realtek driver? I am not responsible for any mistakes that occur on your part.
In very layman’s terms, what happens is that when the sound card has not been used for some time, usually about 10 sec, it deactivates itself in order to save power.
Inside the PowerSettings folder you should find some keys that define the power conservation timer for the sound card. Log in or sign up in seconds.
With my computer, I have noticed extremely faint white noise coming from my headphones when idle. I haven’t maxxaudoo any issue so far, but in light of your post, I will edit the OP. I am merely summarizing his solution and reposting for visibility in case others have trouble finding an acceptable solution like I did. My post also includes why you don’t want to set the reg values to “00”. Theoretically, if the card cannot be turned off, then depl issues associated with turning the card back on should not occur.

In light of this new information, I am advising this fix only be used to remedy the loud pop that is present when using Windows drivers. Dell did not allow this app to be removed, causing frustration as the app depl the sound and often results in poor, strange audio, especially when listening with headphones.
Sorry, bro, I actually already posted this 5 months ago. Become a Redditor and subscribe to one of thousands of communities. Is it because the audio enhancements? Do you think the issue you had is specific to the Realtek driver?
A solution to audio popping in Dell XPS 15 : Dell
The most effective fix I have found is to simply prevent the sound card from deactivating at all. Yes, I disliked MaxxAudio because of the enhancements. Thank maxxaudiio kind sir: When a sound signal comes through, the sound card is reactivated.
