I bought myself a laptop a few months back for use at university.
Two days ago I had a dialogue box pop up whilst I was on the internet saying the following:

"The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Reboot the machine."

Why would the termination of the subroutine call demand a reboot?

When the system booted up again, the sound was crackling and warped. I shut the machine down to cool, and see if that made a difference but after 20 minutes or so when it was getting warm again the sound started playing up again.

I did some repairs on the OS (MS WinXP) but it's made no difference. After roughly 15-20 minutes it always starts crackling.

Does anyone have any idea what could have caused this? and what might be done about it?
Any help is appreciated. :)

Thanks in advance.

The Remote Procedure Call warning you got sounds like the recent MSBlaster virus, see this thread :

As regards Sound Crackling it may just be that you need to adjust Hardware Acceleration - Go Start > Run type DXDIAG click Sound and try both adjusting H/ware Accel. and running through the Sound troubleshooting.
