    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

    Hissing Popping Clicking, sounds like my X :haha:

    Need to know more about your system:
    MoBo
    cpu
    psu
    etc.
    In the mean time.
    Being this is a pci sound card, what pci slot do you put it in?
    I recommend the one furthest from agp or bottom one.
    You can also take a pencil eraser to the contacts on the sound card, lightly
    rub or polish the gold contacts that slip into the pci slot. Be sure not to
    get any eraser dust in the case or on the MoBo. Use some commpressed
    air to blow out the slots on the MoBo. Re-assemble

    Try FireFox
    Much safer too. I don't know if this will solve the sound problems but it's a good step in the right direction.
    Everest will give you solid info about your system and help us to help you.
    Filling out your profile with the info from everest will also help in future posts' as well.

    loose audio cable?

    unshielded cables?

    I am wondering about the shielding now too, being this is more a media center sound card. Or if the IR or remote control may have RF interference. Possibly power outlet/surge protector interference.
    Have you checked into & installed the latest drivers?
