For a while now ive been getting on and off crackly sound in the speakers, it can vary from high to low volume, and isent the speakers, since my old ones did it as well, when i connect a headphone into either sound port the crackling is still there. (in all programs, games, music, etc)
Im running XP, but im not sure what other info you might need. So if you can help i would really appreciate it, and if you need more info, just post it and ill do by best to give it to you.
Thanks.

Hello,

Do you have a spare set of speakers to use? also whatsound card/chip does the system have and have you installed the latest codecs?
Regards,

Alan.

As i said the crackling happens in All speakers, and ill check the sound cards/codecs when i get home.
By memory its a C-media something something. Onboard surround sound.

EDIT: CM6501 sound
And as far as i know i have installed latest codecs, but im not too sure what they are, i have all in one codecs installed.

Have you turned on hardware acceleration in any application? have you tried the directx tests? Go to start then run and type dxdiag and select the sound and music tabs and perform the tests on them.

How old is the system? it could be old hardware failure.

Alan.
