    Thanks mate. I've pretty much accepted the fact that I'll have to wait for proper driver support. The last time those multi XP/Vista drivers for my card were updated was May 08, so I'm not holding my breath

    I might try ASUS too. Even though it's a pre-beta, that's no excuse

    No, I have a Sony surround sound system (not pulling it out to see the model number because its jarred between two pieces of wood).
    The sound system doesn't work with 7 at all, but does with Vista, and not XP.
    All the installations are fresh by the way.

    I have also faced speaker crackeling when different programs are used. It turns out that it is Windows 7 basically unmounting the speakers to give one application full control, meaning everytime I launched a new program the speakers would crackle. I have stopped this by unchecking "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device".

    Playback Devices>Speakers>Advanced>Exclusive mode

    At least this seems to have solved the problem for me as the crackling was defening when doing anything such as switching between Flash, Games or SMPlayer.

    WRONG - Apparently this does not effect the issue at all... Though it is probably something to do with the analogue audio. I updated to the latest drivers and the problem persists.

    I still have not fixed the speaker crackle: Although my audio card is digital and analouge my speakers are only analouge. Which means I cannot switch to digital to stop this from happenening.

    The crackle only happens when a program is started or has not been playing for approximately ten minutes. Then it is a loud single crackle which is very off putting. Currently I am trying disabling the microphone line in, just in case it is trying to pick up something from the mic when there isn't one. Though I fear this is just a long shot but I have to try.

    Ok Iv had this issue with 2 laptops now and i finally found out how to fix it after finding no answer online...the problem is with the realteck HD driver. I fresh installed a oem copy of windows 7 and the issue was fixed with the default w7 driver. so therefore the issue is the driver and you need to unistall it from your system and installed this version HD Audio 6.1.7600.16385 hope this helps all cheers.

    I had the same problem with my Creative Sound Blaster Audigy LS 24-bit. Still don't have a driver to remedy the cracking, so I pulled it. However, my onboard sound chip works perfect in Windows 7 x86. Go figure.
