What causes audio crackling on Blade 17?

After purchasing the GAN charger from Razer to charge my Razer Blade 17 (2022), I noticed that whenever I use the right-side Thunderbolt port, my laptop slows down significantly and becomes very laggy. However, there are no issues when I plug in the left-side Thunderbolt port. I was under the impression that both ports were Thunderbolt 4, but am I mistaken?

It's possible that the right-side Thunderbolt port on your Razer Blade 17 (2022) may not be a Thunderbolt 4 port or there could be an issue with the port itself. Have you tried using a different device with a Thunderbolt 4 port to see if the same issue occurs when plugged into the right-side port of your laptop?

Outdated or corrupted audio drivers: If your audio drivers are outdated or corrupted, it can lead to audio crackling issues. Try updating your audio drivers by going to the manufacturer's website and downloading the latest driver version.Hardware issues: A faulty audio jack or damaged speakers can cause audio crackling. Try connecting headphones or external speakers to see if the issue persists. If the crackling disappears, the issue could be with your laptop's speakers. MyMileStoneCard
