Interference when playing music

Hi there,

When I play music, I keep getting interference like a crackly sound. I used to think that it was due to my wireless headphones not being very good quality but I get it with my good quality wired earphones. Anyone got any ideas???? I would tell you what my sound card is but I don't know where to find the details also, it is a laptop. I think it maybe Realtek high definition audio that features somewhere, but I don't know where to find more details. Hope you can help, any help would be much appreciated

Not to be a wise guy, but look through the many posts about this problem in this section. There are many posts in other forums about this too.

Really depends on the kind of crackle, hearing it is usually the best way to identify it.
