I've got a problem, no duh, cutting long story short whenever a person talks loudly or even remotely above the norm, the sound distorts. I can't describe how it distorts but it only does in with the built-in speakers on my HP laptop, and only under Linux.

The audio chipset is something called an IDT High Definition Audio CODEC which is built into a HP Pavilion DV6-3100sa laptop. The speakers are Dolby Advanced audio certified if that helps.

I don't know if anything can be done about this, but any help is appreciated.
