I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem, but since I'm having the problem directly with my speakers, I thought I'd post it hear.

When listening to MP3s or even system sounds, once in a while I will hear crackles and snaps in the sounds. This is on sound files that didn't have these crackles and snaps before, so I know it's not the files themselves.

Anyway, I initially thought I blew out my speakers or something, so I bought new ones. However, now I still hear the same noises. Again, it's not constantly thoughtout a music file, but I do hear it.

Any advice is appreicated...

try updating your sound card's drivers. also do a good check on the cable connecting your soundcard to the speakers. make sure theres no physical damage to it. even if the cable looks fine, theres still a possiblity that a connection internally could be bad in the cable. make sure plugs are clean and plugged in firmly.

Thanks for the suggestions.

The driver is already the most up to date. And the speaker and cable are new (just bought them), but I checked them anyway, and they seem fine.

Any other ideas?

thanks,
mike.

The same thing happened to my XPS 600 Renegade Limited. I called Dell to find out. They said that sometimes if you have anything that interferes with the electromagnetic field around the computer it can cause those sounds. Some examples would be cell phones and some wireless connections. Of course they said it is different from every system.

That would make sense, as I just got a wireless keyboard and mouse a couple months ago.

Thanks for the info!
