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.

Then I am going to try again, but with over 100 apps installed, it will take me a week. Stay tuned.

@All Posters - there may be some suspicion, after Bonedriven's last post, that the problem may be associated with Windows 7 installations that were done via an "upgrade" from Vista/XP rather than through a "clean install".

Those of you having problems with the crackling audio, could you post if the Windows 7 installation giving you audio problems was the result of a "CLEAN INSTALL" or an "UPGRADE".

LEt's just see if there is a pattern (a/k/a - a smoking gun). Thanks

Mine was a completely clean install (on a new hard drive as it happens).

I don't think it makes a difference if you do a clean install or an upgrade.

The problem occurred when I had Vista, then I "upgraded" to 7. The problem still occurred. At one point I decided to do a clean reinstall(I formatted the drive and everything). My sound still snaps, crackles, pops, and the like.

Maybe a clean install might help for some people, but it hasn't made a lick of difference in my experience. I wouldn't waste my time reinstalling.

EDIT: Has anyone had the same issue with a non-realtek card? Because I'm getting seriously tired of the sound distortion and I might just get a new sound card all together.

Buying PCI card most probably won't help you out, I have plugged Sound Blaster Audigy 2 from another computer and the issue still remained.

In the last 3 days I have reinstalled Windows 7 four times and the issue appears just after installation is completed (without software drivers and apps installed).

So it means that either W7 is really badly messed up or it's a hardware issue.

Another thing is that for some reason I can't get other OS'es to work. I have Ubuntu live cd's and system hangs when I try to enter to GUI mode. Same with Windows XP, I tried to install it, I formatted partition where system was about to be installed, started copying files and then reboot, after reboot system hangs at 'Veryfing DMI Pool Data' so I'm unable to install it. This is really bad and disturbing.

PS. I also installed leaked SP1, so the PC is as much up-to-date as it could be.

I did a clean install with my system Windows 7 64 bit. My problem was my wireless Linksys card. Since removing the card I have no more issues.

Yep, it's often wireless or the network adapter (ethernet).

Hopefully drivers will come up to speed and a Win service pack released that helps alleviate the somewhat "fragile" audio system.

I am currently testing my sound on the newest Ubuntu booted from USB flashdrive, I hope I will finally resolve wheter it's software issue or hardware one.

So far so good, I will post updates here. I am new to Linux distributions so I will take my time to learn new OS .

Have tried two other non-Realtek sound devices and crackle still remained.

I do wonder if putting in a different LAN card would sort this out? On my system when there's no network traffic there's no crackle.

Just looking at people's system specs, lot of us with Gigabyte and Asus motherboards. Is there a particular hardware component that these manufacturers use on their boards (Realtek LAN!) that doesn't get used on boards from other manufacturers such as Dell?

Is this a Realtek problem?

Who's having the problem but doesn't have a Realtek network chip?
