    hey guys, I have only utorrent,but no antivirus installed at the moment. And the problem doesn't only happen when utorrent is running. It's there all the time as long as cpu is busy.

    What are your computer specs?

    It really helps if you fill out the site questionnaire.

    Hi Aphelion,thanks for reply.

    It's HP dv4 laptop. Windows 7 32bit though. I guess not all people in this thread are using 64bit os,right?
    Things I've tried:
    1.disabling network card drivers
    2.uninstalling security program(actually online armor only)
    3.updating bios
    4.reinstalling sound drivers
    5.restoring power options settings
    6.updating Nvidia video driver
    What I'm gonna try is disabling PCI express card. I haven't got the time to figure out where is it at the moment.

    Everything runs smooth on my laptop except this small but annoying issue recently appeared.

    Up until a month ago I did not have a problem. Some driver or M$ update must be misbehaving. I do weekly ghosts of the system, so on the weekend I am going to start regressing in time to get back to a backup that does not have a problem. I will then compare the current and backup to identify the differences. It will take time, but so does this hit and miss method I have been using.
    I agree! But my last backup was 2 months ago.

    Hope you can find out which update causes the problem and tell us...
    I GIVE UP. . . .well, sort of.

    I re-imaged my system with the oldest ghost I had - 12/30/09 - and the crackle is there. I do not recall hearing it until about a month ago but then again, I detected the crackles using headphones which I had not started using until recently,

    I also took my current image and removed all M$ updates and all programs installed or updated since the beginning of the year. No dice, same crackle.

    What I have noticed is that the same image when re-booted will have different levels of the noise. Sometimes very subtle, other times constant and louder. Sometimes you believe you fixed the problem until the next boot.

    An observation is also that when there are background processess causing drive activity the crackles are more evident.

    This is clearly a Windows 7 issue. I previously had Vista Ultimate running in this box with no issues. When I installed W7 I just did an Update and everything migrated over perfectly. I have also now done a fresh install, same issues so I have gone back to my current image.

    Ok, we will keep looking, but I believe one of these days M$ will wake up and put out an update patch and it will be all gone.

    Hi Roberden, what we have in common is that my windows 7 was also upgraded from vista. But you'd better not wait for M$ on this issue. We are not even sure if it's the update causing the problem. I'm considering a clean install. This is too annoying and I can't take it...

    @bonedriven,

    Don't bother with the clean install, I did it and got the same results. Like I said, it is erratic. I have done a couple 'fixes' (see prior posts) that I thought were working, only for the problem to resurface on the next boot.

    I am begining to think that since the sound crackle problem exhibits different characteristics on different boots of the same image that the order in which the modules (services and drivers) load into memory may have something to do with the severity of the problem. But just a hypothesis for now.

    A clean install can't beat it? I think you know what I meant,clean install,not image restore. This is gonna be the strangest problem ever happened on my computer then. Or maybe it's hardware problem,those happen by season. Do you live in north planet too..?

    I did a clean install. I also did an image re-install, same result. I have two HP boxes, different model workstations. Both have the same problem. Both have different chipsets, Networks and IDE/AHCI drive contollers. SO I know it is not my hardware.

    But if you do a clean install and it works (consistently after loading in your apps) I would like to know. LOL

    Hi Roberden,I've just done a fresh install and the sound issue is gone. Especially,I've installed all the drivers and windows updates.
