its like the sound of light switch, that sound of electricity and happens only when booting into windows, also there is a pop from my headphone but only on the third crackle from system. Weird, always 3 crackles.

OHHH!!! now i know what your talking about... sorry, i didnt even think of that, its like when your plugging in your speakers and there at full blast but you accidentally touch the outside of the port ... right?

no that its an audioable while the speakers are plugged in the whole time.

while not near the speakers
