1st. I had onboard sound, and I started getting crackling noises in my games and when listening to music. I bared with it for a while, then I got annoyed.
the crackling came through my Speakers And my Headphones.

The headphones are pretty good ones, aswell as the speakers. (3 speakers in total)

2nd. I went and got a soundcard, I Uninstalled all the other soundd rivers from my onboard sound, Disabled onboard audio in BIOS, and installed my Sound Card drivers from the CD. When playing games it's fine, but when I listen to my MP3 Music with winamp, and Windows Media player, it's pretty **** quality, and sometimes crackles. (This is with Speakers + Headphones)

I really do NOT no what to do now.

I'm thinking it's something to do with an Audio Codec not being installed or something? I dunno. I then tried installing my drivers (C-media) from the C-Media website, it still gives me the crackling sound.

I've check the plugs at the back, they are all plugged in correct..

It can't be a hardware problem, because it's a bit weird that my speakers + headphones make the same sound, at the same part of the song/s.

I have an ASUS P4S800-MX motherboard, with SiS Chipset.

I've installed my ASUS drivers + my chipset drivers.

Check your IRQ situation to see if there's any sharing going on. If need be move the PCI card to another slot until it either works, or you see that it's not sharing an IRQ with your graphics card or other device.

And yet, you may find that shared IRQ's isn't your problem. It certainly wasn't mine. I thought the fact that my SoundBlaster Audigy SE shared IRQ 16 with my graphics card was a problem, but I moved it to a different PCI slot and a different IRQ and had the same problems.

True -- the best thing to do is just try different slots until you find one that works out for you. As far as IRQ issues it's usually Creative hardware based DSP cards that have an issue with sharing and IRQ with a video card -- mainboard/bios depending. CMI cards usually don't have much of an issue except older drivers. They have a new driver but it only addresses the old NF2 gameport issue and offers no new game/apps/os compatibilty fixes.
