Re: Dell XPS 13 Late 2016 9360 Kaby Lake 7th Gen

Jshap. Are you talking of coil whine or the static feedback in audio when plugging in headphone? If the latter, have you tried the fixes posted on our devices archwiki?

neither. I've already fixed the static and the coil whine using the headphone mic boost and the modsetting on the graphics. This issue is a different one; the best way I could describe it is that whenever the display is drawn or updated, it pipes the coil-whine like crackling sound through the headphone jack. I get that to some extent with this laptop the coil whine is expected, but this is very loudly coming through the headphones and I know it's fixable because it only happens after waking from suspend.

@jshap
Wow. This is, to me, the first time I'm hearing about this. Been away for awhile from this thread. Did others experience this as well or a one-off to your system?

I've read some stuff online about it where people with the same realtek card have the problem, but so far no solutions have worked. Tommylefunk is the first person in the thread to mention it, and his solution only works when the audio device is in powersaving mode and not playing audio.
To me, there are just so many strange things about this problem. I think I still have some more debugging to do, but yeah it's a really annoying problem to have.

Yes I have the exact same problem with latest 8th gen. @jshap. Only after suspend mode.
Looking forward for a solution.

I think I managed to fix it with "pulseaudio -k"

@borag, hi ~ welcome to the forum.  Please don't add multiple posts after each other.  Instead, you can edit your post and expand upon that.  Thank you!

@jshap70 - good luck, feel free to open another thread with your system details and perhaps the general audience can offer some thoughts?

Just a heads up for whomever it may concern, but there's a bios update out (2.5.0) apparently to address some meltdown-related issues. I had no issues installing it.
