Popping sounds even after uninstal(srry for bad english)

Sorry about this issue @Peace … Unless @bvijay has a better idea, worst-case scenario you could try a system restore to a date prior to when you started having this problem.

Thanks, James.

Yes, using a recovery drive or Windows’ built-in System Restore function to revert your system back to a previous state, is indeed an option you could explore, if the changes made by the rollback are acceptable, and, if there are recovery drives or restore points available, of course…

However, this is not something to take lightly, and you should take some time to review if the changes made to your system, are worth the distortion you are experiencing.

Here’s a quick copy-paste (from the page James linked above) of the instructions on how to use System Restore:

P.S.: The same web page in Portuguese - simply change /en-us/ to /pt-br/

i Tried restoring but i don’t have anything to restore, i remember latencymon saying something about disabling cpu throttling, should i do this? or should i try to restore the windows? i can use my cellphone as audio device soo i can wait more if you guys think it’s better

Do you mean there are no restore points?
Because if you have no restore points, then you can’t restore your system to any previous point.
“Disabling CPU/Power throttling” simply means changing the Power settings of your computer/laptop.
I actually don’t think this will fix the distortion you are experiencing anytime soon, but, this is a tutorial describing 4 methods.
You’ll want to try method 1 first, since it is the easiest and safest; and method 4… Well, I honestly wouldn’t recommend trying that one, in this case, really only to be used as a last resort, ànd only after creating a system restore point (the instructions on how to do that can be found here).
All of these methods are at your own risk, so proceed with caution.

Have you checked your Device Manager (under “Sound, video and game controllers”), your Control Panel (under “Programs”), and your Windows Sound Settings yet, to see if FxSound is still there (I asked this in my first post)?
If FxSound is still in Device Manager, then uninstalling the FxSound driver manually seems like the smartest thing to do.
Another thing you could try, is going to Device Manager, finding the audio device which is causing the problem, and either updating, or rolling back, the driver of this device.
Open Device Manager, go to “Sound, video and game controllers,” locate the problematic device, right-click it; then go to the “Driver” tab; and next, either select “Update Driver” to update the driver, or “Roll Back Driver” to roll back the driver.

well, i was talking about recovering the windows to factory settings, i think is called recovery

This would return your computer to the way you bought it.
Meaning all programs you’ve installed, and all your files, will be deleted.
To me, this does not seem very desirable.

Yes, that’s definitely worth a try.
You can find the latest version on fxsound.com.

By the way, if your headset is connected via USB, then can’t you simply plug it into another available port?
Or connect it via Bluetooth or a 3,5mm jack instead?
Or, have you already tried that, and do you get the same distortion that way, too?

wil try again with all the other usb. but yeah i alredy tried that. and my headset is just USB

Okay. It was just a thought.
Have you searched the manual, is there perhaps some way to perform a factory reset on your headset itself?
I will be “away from keyboard” for the next eight to ten hours, to sleep.
But I’ll be back tomorrow.

welp, my headset is pretty basic, and don’t have a instalation, and i don’t have a clue where the box is but i will try to find it. but again if i try to recovery the windows, if the problem is with the pc itself, is there a big chance to solve it?i am ok if this is a option too

i will try to find something to test my headset on, to be sure if the problem is with the pc or headset

I am assuming your computer is way more expensive than your headset; and it would be illogical to factory-wipe a 700€ computer just to save a 50€ headset (random estimates).

You can find any manual online. You just have to know the brand and the model, then run a search on any search engine, to find the manual.

wait a sec, are you talking about the option the windows give itself? if yes. what exactly means factory wipe? i can wait for you to respond tomorrow if you want
