Lately there was cracking in my speakers when I played games. Then the cracking started to happen when I listened to music. Well the first thing I thought of was that my speakers are bad. So to remedy the problem I bought new speakers. At first the cracking was gone and it sounded great. But, now I have noticed a bit of cracking occurring during specific songs. I thought it may be the driver but it is the newest one. Could it be the on-board sound card causing the cracking? My computer is getting old so maybe it is time for a new one. Anyone have any ideas.
