MSI P67A-GD65 faint popping sound...

I recently built a new computer and I have a slight repetitive popping/cracking when sound is played. It happens on both the front and back audio jacks with speakers or my headphones.
My system specs are....
CPU: 3.3ghz intel i5
Mobo: MSI P67A-GD65
GPU: Radeon HD 6950
PSU: XFX 650W
OS: Windows 7 64 bit

The only other weird thing my mobo does is my usb wifi mouse wont work without being really laggy at random, but it works fine on other computers.

  1. Is they anything I can do to help diagnose this? Or should I post this in a different part of the forums?

    EDIT1:Also I just tried and there is NOT any popping when I booted to ubuntu on my 2nd hdd. So this only occurs in Windows (and I tried the drivers that came with the mobo).

    EDIT2: Just updated realtek drivers to newest version and didn't help.
  2. No suggestions? This is the driver I installed a few days ago, http://www.msi.com/product/mb/P67A-GD65.html#/?div=Drive (downloads > drivers > realtek hd audio driver)
  3. Problem solved, had something to do with netgear pci wifi card drivers, reinstalled them and working fine now.
