Lately I've been noticing that while listening to any audio files (music, movies, etc.) I will get a "bzzzt" type noise, sometimes it will happen often during just a song and sometimes it won't even happen at all. I have updated all my drivers, as far as I know and the problem is still there. It's a pretty annoying issue.

Does anyone know what is causing this and how to fix it? It concerns me considering my laptop is just over a month old.

Here are some of my specs.

I have a HP dv6 notebook.
AMD Turion II P540 Dual-Core Processor 2.40GHz
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Sound: ATI High Definition Audio Device
IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

Thanks for any help.

It's most likely a loose connection somewhere or electrical interference. Check if any appliances are starting up (microwave, fridge, washing machine). Cars and lawn mowers used to be prime candidates but not so much these days. It may be happening more than you think - perhaps you only notice when listening intently? I can't think of many PC related issues - sometimes moving the mouse can interfere with audio.
