    In the last week, all sound on my laptop has started to crackle slightly. I changed headphones, but realized that thats not the problem. If i increase volume, the crackling gets worse, and distortion really sets in. Strange....only started happening last week. I have tried reinstalling my sound card driver, but no change there. Have looked around all my audio settings but cant find any clues. music etc is still listenable, but there is just a faint crackle constantly annoying me. and distortion if i turn the volume up louder.

    Does this mean my sound card is wearing out?? or is it a physical prob inside?

    my sound card is : Conexant AC link audio
    i have windows xp home edition on a HP compaq nx4800

    any help would be much appreciated!!
