My brand new acer 5532 laptop's audio slows an crackles when loading pages, even under light CPU usage. its very annoying, especially since I'm huge internet radio buff, and have a klipsch system that makes almost every imperfection noticeable. The sound is prevalent on the crappy laptop speakers as well. Im using a Belkin N150 router and the connection is always strong, this happens when its plug into my 100 mbs fiber-optic broadband too. please help!

Laptop speakers are hardly the greatest speakers
You'd probably be better off with a pair of external speakers

Is the connection tight?
Does it change at all when you hold the plug in?
Maybe update the audio driver. Did you do that yet?

its connected, the driver is updated. I've updated every driver.

some program is interfering with streaming audio. its making the pages load over the audio or some thing. it seems to happen more on pages with tons of flash and junk on them. I've unchecked hardware acceleration, and it did not do anything. Remember this is windows 7, others who bought this laptop are having the same problem.

-"its very annoying, especially since I'm huge internet radio buff, and have a klipsch system that makes almost every imperfection noticeable. The sound is prevalent on the crappy laptop speakers as well."-

I thought that stated its prevalent on the laptop speakers as well as my external system? why would the systems connection make any difference?
