The problem I have is with my audio. For years the sound on my pc worked fine, until 1 day its just started makin a horrible skipping, crackling noise when the was any sound coming from the speakers.
The noise happens when I am streaming music or video and also when I am playing music or video from my HDD. The problem also happens no matter which program I use to play music/video files. It also happens on every single audio file I play, it is not just a problem with certain files. For some reason it occurs more when I am multi tasking. If i just have WMP playing and no other programs running, it is hardly noticeable, however, if I open another program, it gets alot worse.
This proves a massive problem for me, as I like to make music mixes on the pc, and when I run my Virtual DJ program and record, the crackling noise is quite bad, and makes recording impossible
I have recorded 2 audio samples and uploaded them so any1 that may be able to help me can take a quick listen (the are only around 35 secs long, and dont need to be downloaded, jus left click to play them)
The file I used to take a recording of is a good quality file, recorded @ 192kbps. It plays fine on other pc's, or when burned to cd and played on a stereo.
Sample 1 has been recorded with jus WMP playing a music file, there is little or no crackling or distortion etc
Sample 2 has been recorded with WMP playing the file, and Bitlord running in the background (The recording would also be the same, no matter which other program was running, this is not just a problem with Bitlord)
This never used to be a problem, it just seemed to come all by itself, and as you can probably imagine, it is unbearably annoying. If any1 can help me out with this, I would massively appreciate it
