I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I got it a little less than 2 years ago. For the last year or so I've noticed that when it's on for a little while (a day or two, lately the time is decreasing), audio starts to sound horrible. "Choppy" may be the best description. A crackling sound is very common when listening to music on iTunes or youtube. Sometimes it will also distort the audio and you'll hear a lot of beeping and slow droning. Basically it sounds like a dubstep song, which isn't a great combination with country music if you get my drift. Also it increases with the more high performance tasks I do. When I restart it goes away for probably 10 hours now. It used to be about two days. Are there any ways to fix this problem? My CPU temp is in the high 80's on average and my laptop overheats a lot. If I blow some compressed air in the fans it usually doesn't overheat for a week or so. Thanks.
