I have a sony Vaio desktop W1 which has developed a crackle when playing any audio, I can watch TV without a problem. So i am presuming its a problem with the onboard sound driver. I have reloaded driver, also removed XP and reloaded, i have restored BIOS to defaults and reloaded the Vaio with the recovery disk supplied all to no avail. It also crashes every hour or so with a driver problem.
I have looked through the control panel and can see no issues, not sure where to go from here ?
