I have a Dell desktop with speakers attached to it.
After listening a while to music, the right speaker starts to crackle. Have removed soundcard and put it back in. Have dusted everything inside the tower. Nothing helps.
Is this a faulty soundcard?
Any other suggestions?

Hello yakimashi,

It could be a problem with...

1. the sound card
2. the speakers
3. the audio files
4. audio drivers

Have you updated to the latest drivers?
Can you try the speakers on another system just to see if its a problem with the speakers?
Do the audio files work on any other device or system?
Can you look in the device manager for conflicts? (right click MY Computer, properties, hardware tab, device manager)
Also the event viewer may give some more information.

1. Click Start select run
2. Type eventvwr.exe
3. Press enter
4. Search through the groups for errors and warnings.
5. Double click on each error and or warning.
6. Locate the copy to clipboard button, (under the two arrows)
7. Let us know what you find. (paste the results)

Also a failing speaker jack. Does it do this when using headphones?
