    Hey all,
    I recently bought a Dell Latitude E6410 and my sound card has started putting out a base layer of static. It happens whether I'm plugged in or not, and no matter what I plug into my headphone jack. It seems to get louder whenever I perform actions onscreen, like moving the scrollbar or opening applications, and when I use USB peripherals like my mouse and keyboard. At first, it was just a small nuisance that I could put up with, but lately it's gotten louder and has started to really detract from my music / video experience. I figure it's a problem with my soundcard (or maybe it's just integrated sound? I'm not entirely sure), but I'm hoping to find an internal fix so that I won't have to replace it. Thanks for any help.

    Here are my specs:
    Dell Latitude E6410
    Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit
    Intel i7 M620 Processor
    4 GB RAM
