    Improve sound quality for a Windows guest

    I'm trying to run Windows 7 in VirtualBox (host is Kubuntu 12.04), but the sound quality is atrocious. Even simple beeps sounds broken up and crackly. Is there any way I can fix this? I've tried adjusting settings on the Windows guest, but nothing is working...

    Guest Extensions/Pack installed?

    What Vbox version?
    What's a landing but a take off in reverse?

    Oh yes, I forgot. My VirtualBox version is "4.1.12_Ubuntu". And yes, I have the Guest Extensions Pack installed. Here are the settings for VirtualBox, btw.

    What are your PC's specs?

    It's a laptop, but it's a gaming laptop, so it's pretty powerful. It's a MainGear ex-L 15 SuperStock.

    CPU: 64-bit Intel Core i7-2760QM @ 2.4 GHz (3.5 GHz Turbo)
    GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 675m
    Memory: 2x Corsair Vengeance 8 GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz

    So I doubt it's that my computer is unable to run Windows virtualized. In fact, I've been able to get away with running Kubuntu 12.04, Windows 7, PC-BSD, and more than 5 clones of Tails (a debian-based hardened OS) at once. Then I tried opening Fedora 16 and my computer crashed instantly (I had no swap enabled at the time so maybe that's why).

    I also have Intel's VT-x (?) virtualization enabled in the BIOS.
