I keep hearing little distortions (sounds like a bleep, but not quite) while watching movies or playing audio on my pc. This only happens about 5 or 6 times an hour, but it is very annoying. I can't figure out what it is. I think it may have something to do with system resources (irqs etc), but I'm not sure. I have a fairly loaded down PC. I am running off of the onboard nforce2 sound (I had an audigy2 that didn't do this, but it just burned out). I also have a ton of other hardware and I really think it may be an irq problem. Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? It happens in windows but never in linux if that helps anyone's diagnosis. I even just did a total reinstall of windows xp pro and that didn't help. Any ideas?

It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

Could be cell phone interference or some other type of interference. A few seconds before my phone rings i always get some strange beep like sounds from my speakers. Although sometimes it will happen without my cell going off so that could be your problem.
Also i used to get some really bad sound distortions frequently off my SB audigy card that would last for 10 seconds to a couple minutes and then suddenly it stopped happening and it has been fine ever since.
