    hello in the last few days when i turn on my pc in 5 minutes or so
    a crackling sound comes out of my speakers, and the volume bar in the tray icon freezes, then
    in about 5 mins the sound goes off, and i will have to restart my pc again to make it work
    i don't know what is this problem is it from the sound card driver, windows 7, or something else
    any help pls?
    even web sites like youtube comes to a non responding act
    thanks

    Check the Drivers 1st. Or it could be the hardware itself.

    go to device manager to check your drivers. You also might wanna check your speakers too make sure their not blown, cause blown speakers will tend to pop and crack like that.

    the speakers are ok because once i used my headphones and the same crackling sound came.
    so this is my motherboard
    asus crosshair 3
    and this has also its sondcard which is supremefx x-fi
    now when i go to device manager and into sounds
    2 lines drops down i don't know which one is the soundcard driver
    the first one is AMD high defeniton audio device
    and the second is soundMAX integrated digital hd audio

    Probably has them both enabled and causing a conflict.

    i have that sound card the supreme fx the speakers are plugged in it
    and the driver is the soundMAX integrated digital hd audio

    now when i go to playback theres this icon with a monitor showing, and it says
    AMD hd sound device not plugged in when i right click on it and go in properties
    it seems that its enable, should i disable it, maybe thats the problem?
