Sound problems...

  Happy37 20:22 31 Jan 2003

I am writing this to ask if you would be able to help me with a recent problem with my computer. The system is a Pentium 2 mmx CPU,384mb memory,80gb hard drive,36 speed cd-rom drive. It also has an S3 Trio 3D graphics card with 4mb memory. The sound card is an ESS ES1869 Plug and Play Audiodrive in an ISA slot. I am running Windows ME.
The problem is that I sometimes get the usual wav. file music play on startup, or even when I am working on something else, I suddenly get a loud crackling sound coming from the monitor's speakers in place of the music that I want to play. I have SINCE replaced the monitor and bought standalone desktop stereo speakers, yet the problem still remains. Someone suggested to change the soundcard as well and then see what happens. Any advice that you are or would be able to give me would be received gratefully by myself as I hope that this is not an underlying cause waiting to lead on to a bigger problem.

Thanking everyone for their help,
