Onboard sound isn't the best way to listen to music anyway really.

What speakers do you have? If you plug headphones in for example, does the crackling stop?

Are you sure everythings plugged in right?

it could be a loose connection some where, do you have any powere wires next to your pc speaker wires ? it could be interference from too many things plugged into the power strip... see http://www.dirtyelectricity.org/
