Installed ubuntu (dual boot with win10) and every time I reboot or power on the laptop, there's a loud pop noise or high pitched noise from the speakers. This issue occurs with headphones connected too. After booted, there are no problems with sound. However, when I boot to windows, the issue does not happen.

laptop is HP Spectre 13 (13-V001NJ)

Tried installing other distros but the problem persists... Would appreciate help very much, I have been searching for a solution for a long time now.

  • Please forgive my confusion, but you say that this happens every time you power on the laptop? If that's truly the case, why do you think it has something to do with any of the operating systems that you have installed? – Elder Geek Mar 30 '18 at 20:32
  • When I set boot manager to boot to windows by default, the noises do not occur during boot at all. In addition, the problem never occurred when I earase the partition Ubuntu is installed on. This leads me to think the problem is with Ubuntu and not my computer. Sorry if my phrasing was incorrect. – Android_TR Mar 30 '18 at 22:05

    Pardon my confusion, but if the sound occurs before an OS is loaded, it has nothing to do with the OS. Period. You probably have fastboot enabled under windows and believe erroneously that the system is booting windows when in effect it's resuming. Turn off fastboot to prove yourself that this isn't OS related. – Elder Geek Mar 31 '18 at 13:53
