Windows 7: Audio crackling & popping after upgrade to Win 7

Audio crackling & popping after upgrade to Win 7

Hope someone can help me resolve this as I've spent virtually a whole week installing and uninstalling drivers with zero improvement.

I have a self-assembled Media Centre PC which was working just fine with Vista but, tempted by the improvements in Win 7, I did an upgrade and most things work fine except the sound, it is crackling and popping and almost unusable. I've updated the drivers (multiple times and in various orders) and tried everything I found on google but to no avail, so this is pretty much my last shot at fixing this. I connect my PC to my surround sound via HDMI (which worked perfectly before) and my audio specs are:

Board: Gigabyte Technology GA-MA69GM-S2H, ATI Radeon X1200 Series with ATI HDMI Audio and Realtek High Definition Audio

Anyone have any idea how I resolve this?
