Hi all, not sure where this should be posted so sorry if its in wrong spot. I have always had a sound clitch when booting up, the widows vista sound crackles a bit and then once start up it does everything fine, or did. Music and vidoes play no problem. I recently had to format but thats not always a bad thing as its like a spring clean i guess but once renistalled the clitch is still there before anyother program is added. I check the driver and windows determins its the latest one so cant update. Also i recently downloaded quicktime and i notice that .mov files have a simillar clitch, the video is perfect but the sound is just not 100% the sound doesnt crackel but its not clean !? My systemis a packard bell 2613 and i am vista 32bit. Thank you for any ideas. Vale.
