I have been having this problem for a while now, at first it was just every now and then, I though there was no need to worry about it, then it became unbearable, happening every 10 seconds or so. I thought a fresh install would fix it, but to no avail. This problem also seems to correlate with my video as well, either if I am on youtube or playing a game, if the sound glitches, then so does the video, making almost anything I do unbearable. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated. I have also been doing research on this as well and this is NOT a sound problem with static noises.
