Your computer is very low in free drive space.

Can you please download Temporary Files Cleaner and run it to clear out some temp files.

Try your audio again.

Crackling audio usually is attributed to a lot of disk drive access.

Hey Crytodan,
I figured out the problem with my audio and was able to fix it quickly. Went into 'Control Panel' and clicked on 'Sound' double clicked on 'Speakers' in 'Speaker's Properties' hit the 'Enhancement' tab and found that the speakers had been turned off. Don't know how it happened, but they work.
Thanks for your help, it got me to keep on digging.
