    Okay to all you computer savvy people out there. I am not very intelligent when it comes to computers, but I would much appreciate your help. I have a hp pavilion6000 something or other... and it has windows vista 64 something (whatever that means). The laptop is only a year old and I had not really had that many issues with it until recently. Up until now I have been able to fix them all relatively easily by reading forums and checking on windows.com.

    Well just a week ago my computer started having sound issues. I did minor fixes to the little bugs, like the sound icon disappearing from the taskbar... and I was okay with it. But now I am at war. First the mute icon on the quickplay touch thing at the top started spazzing and not letting me mute the computer when I wanted. Just as soon as that started it the light for the mute touch button turned blue all the time even when muted... although it used to be red when muted.

    I ignored all these little things for a few days as long as it actually muted. But now I am very very annoyed at this weird sound coming from my speakers. It is a random occurance that cannot be timed or figured out. I checked online and read about sounds coming from the hard drive and weird sounds being played by files on your computer. So I listened to all the sound files on my computer and this sound is not one of them. I am stumped cause most people with Vista problems lose their sound all together. The only way I can describe this sound is to say that it was one the computer used to make when it turned on and the sound of the windows warmup was about to come out... almost like speakers were cracking, clicking, popping on. Now instead of only making this sound at turn on... it makes it all the time. For no apparent reason.

    Any help would be much appreciated. I am about to rip my hair out! Thank you in advance.

    if your speakers are cracking and clipping, your speakers could be defective and you should contact hp.

    if the startup sound keeps playing, then it's a software error. i'm not familiar with 64 bit sorry, but I would do a system restore in your situation
