Audio Crackling noise

thanks for taking the time to read this and help me with my problem

ok the problem is i started to install Crysis Warhead and i started playing it and there was no audio so i unplugged my headphones and plugged em back in nothing still so i saved my game and quit then all i was hearing was crackling so i unplugged my headphones and plugged them into my laptop and it was fine so i was like wtf so i explored the interwebs and found someone who said updating thier bios fixed their problem so i updated from P01-A0 to P01-A3 and i still heard it so right now im updating my realtech HD audio codec although many people said it didnt work for them so i was going to go ahead and post this thread while i do this and look into other methods
edit1: updating the audio driver did not work
edit2: i updated my system specs so that should help more

Welcome to SF.

Your first attempts were what I would have done. If the audio driver doesn't help, try rolling back your computer to a date prior to the installation of Crysis Warhead.

**EDIT**

And we have an excellent forum for Vista support at:

Completely uninstall your audio driver.

Guru3D - removes leftover traces of drivers for NVIDIA (Display and Chipset), ATI (Display), Creative (Sound) Realtek (Sound), Ageia (PhysX) and Microsoft (Mouse).

Then reinstall latest audio driver.
