    Are you sure it is your soundcard and not poor quality MP3s?

    You can try reducing interference by muting all the inputs on the audio controller.

    If you have onboard sound, this is where the "ticking" is coming from. The sound device isn't very advanced and generates strange sounds like that. I hate it.
