The problem i have had with realtek sound software leads me to believe that the computer makers just think "barely acceptible" is good enough. I have tried every possible thing i could try or find to correct a clicking, statically, rough problem with the realtek sound in my Compaq SR1750 computer until i finally gave up and installed a Audigy sound card. A couple of years ago i bought 50 Audigy OEM cards form a wholesale supplier. Before that i always ran the Live! series of Creative cards. I have few left now but still install them in most of my computers. The sound cannot be compared to the realtek sound. That is why i suggested replacing the card. You will never go back to the on-board sound once you have heard the creative's.
If you are thinking of the cost of the Creative cards, all i have to say is many of my creative SB live and Audigy cards have been transferred from old computers to newer computers with no problems. I just add the newest drivers from the creative website. Just cheap good sounds when i need them and a excellent ripping player with the software to boot.

I have a onboard sound chip and have always experienced a scratchy sound when I do anything whilst playing a Video or Audio track in Win XP . Funny thing is , in PCLinuxOS I have no problem . The sound is excellent ! That suggests on my system the Linux drivers and general memory usage are setup much better , for the Sound and Video Hardware , but that's getting of track , but suggests there can be good and bad drivers for the exact same Hardware ...
virushelpplease can simply "Rollback" to the old drivers in the Device Manager , or get a Sound card and pop it into a Expansion slot on his Motherboard , there may be some physical work actually disabling the "On board Chip" , it's something we could look into if virushelpplease returns
" ... The problem i have had with realtek sound software leads me to believe that the computer makers just think "barely acceptible" is good enough."
I verify wholeheartedly SRX660 's comments , there's some really bad onboard sound chips and drivers .
