hey,

ive had this issue for awhile, and im a advanced computer user, and really never had the time or motivation to fix it, but now ive been trying to fix it and everything im trying isnt working. ive noticed that streaming videos's like from youtube, the sound seems to ( on a 1-100 scale, 100 being staticy as hell) be about 15 and not constant but id say a second or two of light static maby every 10 seconds and especially when the video is starting. Im not sure as well, but i think my windows sounds may be a bit staticy, but like i said im not positive on that.

My windows media player works fine, static free, along with my video games, and mic recording/play back, so i dont think its a hardware problem.

Flash player and windows update - audio codec are all up to date.
I have high speed interwebs, 12mbps so it shouldnt be any kind of lagg issue.

and im running on 4gb memory, win 7 pro 64 bit, and dual core AMD turion @ 2.2 ghz, so it isnt that im on a crappy computer eather. and i use firefox mainly, but its the same issue on IE.

any help is greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a buffering issue with your ISP download speed. Done some speed tests?

i tryed wireing my pc to the router in slot 2 ( there is another pc in slot 1) and no difference in the static. the interesting thing i found out, is that it seems when i do a speed test, ( which i did a few) it seems this pc is getting about 6-10mbps on average when the other one is getting 19-25mbps... whats the deal with that? and i did exactly the stuff id do on the laptop to get the excess static ( usually theres a bit standard) but id run a speedtest while watching the video ( on the laptop, where the issue is, when i do a speedtest in a video, it makes the static unbearable...) any idea's?

The desktop i tryed other stuff on was a XP machine with a P4.
