    I'm having an issue with my sound, but I don't think it's from my speakers. While watching online video, the speakers will behave fine for a minute or two, but then there will be a sort of digital sound, then a large amount of constant static for about 3-4 minutes, then it will crackle and be okay again, and 3-4 minutes later the same thing happens again on a continuous cycle. During the large period of static, video seems to freeze up a bit, but still plays with nothing but the static. During the static if I try and play a song in itunes it will work though, just with the other static present with it. I do have an older sound blaster audigy 2 soundcard. Not sure what to try since I can't really find something similar people are going through since it's kind of difficult to describe.

    I also wanted to add that this still happens when I plug headphones into the computer and bypass the speakers

    Try updating or reinstalling the audio drivers. With that said, it sounds like the audio chipset is faulty.
