When ever i play music my sound will crackle every once in a while. When i try to play some games the crackle will be constant. I put in a new sound card think that it was my onboard sound card causing the problem but it was not. I have all the volume controls set to 50% and it still does it. It does not matter what volume they are set at it still does it. If anyone knows what this could be please help me.

So tell us something about the new sound card you put in and what speakers your are using.

Disconnect your current speakers and use headphones (as a test) does the crackle continue?

yes it still makes the same sound with headphones. The card is just a soundblaster live 24 bit. But why should my new sound card be of any question when it did this with the old onbard sound card. Yes i have the newest drives. So i don't know what it could be. Hope you do.

I'm clutching at straws here -

1. Voice recognition software - is there any on your PC?

2. Double click the volume control in the taskbar, click on 'Properties' and display all possible volume controls.
Mute the inputs for 'line in', 'microphone' and 'aux' and any other inputs available. Does this make any difference?

Most likely is your microphone....check that in hte volume properties, u uncheck the microphone box.
