Hello SuperUser Community,
I'm new to Linux Ubuntu, long time Windows User, and glad I'm making the switch. When setting up my desktop PC, I am subjected to an annoying and repetitive speaker 'pop' about every 2 seconds. This pop occurs regardless of volume level. It does stop if I unplug the audio jack to my speakers, and just use the speaker built into the motherboard. If I play a sound, the popping stops while the sound is playing and for about 5 seconds after, then resumes.
I am running Linux Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS. The system information reports two Audio Adapters, HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB & HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
I did eventually find the solution to this problem, but I don't have enough reputation points to post Q&A together.
