Is this a hardware or software problem?

It has only just begun happening and before that it was fine. It even does so when windows starts up.

I have an Acer Aspire One with 1.5GB ram installed.

Update the sound card driver. That should resolve the problem.
If it won't resolve then the problem is on hardware level. Netbooks are cheap but less fault tolerance.

Sometimes the simplest solution is also the most obvious one....

Just started happening
Occurs even during windows startup

I'm assuming based on those two statements that ALL audio output crackles???

Get a can of compressed air, and blow the dirt out of the speaker, and/or replace the blown/loose speaker.

In the end it was neither and an upgrade to Windows 7 solved it.

I'll let the administrators distribute the points.
