Alright, I am one of the people who started hearing popping sounds with the 10.4.10 update every time audio was sent through the computer. I downloaded the update, and restarted and I am still having the same popping (I read the thread on here containing the update and a few others were still experiencing the popping after the update. I almost ALWAYS listen to music when using my computer, so this irritates me quite a bit. I am considering doing an archive and install with the discs that came with my computer, which I believe contains 10.4.8. It bothers me THAT much. What potential problems could doing this give me, and are there any big reasons why I shouild NOT do this? Thanks!

If the update isnt working then is one of two things

Bad hardware or bad software. To eliminate one you can either download a combo update and reinstall 10.4.10 or reformat and reinstall the system....start fresh BUT before doing that you might wanna reset your PRAM by holding down Cmd+Opt+P+R before bootup to reset hardware

If these dont help then make that dreaded phone call to Apple.

Open Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup. In the 'Audio Devices' pane, find the 'Properties For' drop-down menu and select 'Built-in Output'. Next, on the lower right, you'll find a 'Format' drop-down menu. Whatever setting is currently selected there, change it to another, and then immediately change it back to '44100.0Hz'. While doing this, you'll probably hear a pop or two from your speakers, but after that your audio problems should be fixed.
