    I have a strange problem with sound outputs. It affetcs all sound outputs (itunes, movies and games).

    The sound 'crackles'/skips. It seems to be related to computer / internet activity ongoing while listening to a song etc.

    For the first few hours after re-boot all is fine and I can run loads of programmes without affecting the sound. After a few hours (maybe 6) it starts but infrequently (3x a minute) with very small skips, after about 24 hrs it's got so bad that things are unlisteneable - literally!.

    Once the problem has started I've tried turning all other programmes off but it makes no difference

    It's not the heaphones and I've tried with speakers / other phones and it's still there.

    I've checked the sound thing drivers (realtek) and updated, it doesn't seem related to any particular combination of programmes or computer activities but the fact it gets worse over time is a constant.

    It's a Compac machine only 6 months old and has no other issues I'm aware of

    I'm now restarting the machine every 12 hours or so or using it without music.

    Any ideas suggestions etc much appreciated
