i use onboard sound, and just recently my sound has started to make funny noises. it makes crackling noises and also does a slow motion move every now and then.
other times its just too bad id rather just go without my music.
Ive updated my drivers, installed a new codecs pack. the sound kept getting worse.
i can imagine the more i leave the problem, the more it gets worse. but i dont know what the problem is.

ive installed a sound card which worked fine at first, but then it went all funky as well. doing the exact same which my onboard was doing.
i know longer know which sounds better, the onboard or the soundcard.
Its not my speakers, have tested and tried all that.
i bought a new psu (550w) incase it was lacking power cos before i had a 300w.

when the problem with the sound started, the image would lag a bit when i watched movies too. even after updating the codecs and stuff, it still lags.

i am getting so upset cos all this has happened in the past week.

Could it be my motherboard that may have a faulty spot that is maybe just getting worse as it goes along?

i am now listening to music via my phone through my sound system.
i am out of ideas.
Please help!

Hi Lady123 :)
You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it
a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP and if it is provide the
model name or series number, motherboard , PSU and any add on card details
will also help others to help you better.
