Doublecheck all your connections
Did this just start or was the a software installed or drivers update before?
Dies it happen even when there is no audio or video being played?
Also before I would say it's the speakers, is it possible to use another set to check and make sure or if its from some other source.

Hi
1) Connections look good
2) Can't Remember when it started crackling- just more noisy. I'm constantly doing something with the computer so I cannot tell you if it was a program or a driver that caused this.
3) It seems to be more noisy when there is no audio/Video being played
4) I hooked up another pair of speakers. There is still crackling/ popping sounds.

What do you think?

OK it seems then it's not the speakers.
Has there been any kind of electronics placed near the speakers before this all started
The last thing you can do is uninstall your driver and reinstall it.
If this these two items do not work then you may have a bad sound card. Is your sound built onboard or is it a seperate card hooked into your motherboard?
