HI,
my cd's and most downloaded music sounds fine.but when i play games or even sometimes
a video i downloaded the speakers get upset and make a crackling noise on occasion!
even if the volume is at a low level.everything about my computer is very new also.

The "crackling noise" is highly likely to be that the CPU is fully committed playing the game or decoding the video, and simply runs out of resource to control the audio chip in real time. Check in Task manager to see what the CPU% is.

Well, if the CPU is maxed out playing a game, you really don't have the resource to have it process sound in real time...

If using on-board sound, you might try a sound card to see if that has enough on-board hardware to alleviate the load on the CPU.

You only have so many CPU cycles available.
