Hi there, I am fairly new to ubuntu 12.04, and I have recently begun to get sound problems from my speakers. I use google chrome as an internet browser, and every once in a while the sound from videos or music will all of a sudden become fuzzy and crackly, affecting all of the tabs and any new tabs I open up. The only way I have found that fixes it is by closing chrome and reopening it. However, sometimes it will affect the entire computer as well, making me have to restart in order to get sound quality back. I don't know if it is the operating system or the speakers, but I never had this sort of problem when I was using windows on it. Its becoming an ever increasing hassle. Is there anything I can do?
