Acer Aspire One - Sound issue

Each time I listen to music on my Acer Aspire One, there is a crackling sound. What can be done?
  • Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Management > IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
  • Uninstall the "Secondary IDE channel" and then "uninstall primary IDE channel".
  • Restart the computer, these files are automatically re-installed and the sound will be normal again.

Thanks to lolo28300 for this tip!
