Frequently when I wake my computer up from sleep mode, especially if I have been using iTunes or playing music before putting the computer to sleep, the computer will wake up and make crackling noises over the normal sounds it would play. It will still play normal sounds, but the sound is highly distorted by a static, crackling sound. This sound continues to be distorted until I restart my computer, which always fixes the problem temporarily.

I have tried different speakers and headphones, and it is the same problem regardless of these peripherals so I am convinced it is not the speakers. I am wondering if my sound card, itself, might be bad.

I am using Windows 7 on a desktop which I assembled myself. There is a sound card which, I believe, has updated drivers. Sound usually works fine except for these times when the computer wakes from sleep making crackling noises over the normal sounds it would make.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.
