Hey [Ubuntu],
Before I start, I have already looked extensively online about how to try to solve this problem but nothing works. Anyway, Since I switched to Ubuntu from XP (Couple days ago), my sound has been shot. No matter how high I turn up the volume, all I hear is a crackling sound. It's quite irritating as part of my normal computer usage consists of using sound. I have no idea what specs you guys would like so please ask. Thanks for any help!:D

If anyone is curious, the problem was that the 'PCM' under HDA Intel in the volume control menu was at zero causing the crackling.

Try turning up the PCM.
