    Update:

    I've switched to XP now, and the crckling noise is GONE :shock:

    I don't know what i could be, but the noise is completely gone. I'm amazed! I just rebooted, entered XP, and it's gone. That's.. weird..!

    Well, I am on XP, but this doesn't helps at all. Here is the answer I got from Acer.

    Doesn't sound like they know what it is because I really don't think it's a hardware problem.

    Same here. Cause when i switched to XP the crackling stopped. I'm using Ubuntu now, but the crackling is still gone. So.. one thing's sure.. it's mystery where the crackling is coming from.

    Same thing here. Started again last night. I had the same problem about a month or so dualbooting XP and Ubuntu. I noticed that the crackling noice stopped when i used XP. But now, i'm only using Ubuntu since i managed to delete XP (don't ask me how), and now it's back. Wierd? Hell yeah

    I still haven't found a permanent fix, but I did restore it to default settings a while ago, and it worked perfectly for a while, but I noticed it starting to come back again a few days ago.

    Okay, an update:

    I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 on my AAO, and the crackling noice came back. Then when i decreased the system volume, and guess what. The crackling noice disappeared.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that the below solution worked to resolve the sound stuttering problems on my daughter's AAO. Her audio problem was so bad that watching videos on YouTube or otherwise was completely impossible. Following the instructions as noted below worked easily and quickly.

    I can second that the above solution worked for me as well. I had the crackling sound and it was making gaming and even web browsing annoying in here. Kudos for the help. Is threads like this that makes this such an awesome community. My Acer is gaming back to normal now.
