I just bought some usb speakers yesterday, my problem is they make an popping, crackling sound.
I found that they only do this when my cpu usage is very low, 0-5%.
they way i found this out is when playing music in windows media play 11, if i have the visualization running, you know the dancing graphics - the sound is perfect.
but if i minimize the player or stop the visualization the popping noise returns.
I have tried re-installing the usb driver, and the chipset driver - no good.
can anybody help this is doing my head in.
edit : this also happens in nero player and powerdvd, i downgrade to WMP 9, no good.
