Default Audio Problem

Not sure if my speakers are going to kick the bucket, which I doubt because I get the same problem on my headphones.

Problem:
Hearing a crackling sound whenever I play anything with audio (be it youtube, a movie, etc.).

Only recently I noticed it though, so I'm not totally sure if it's there for a long while lol. Also I tried deleting the driver and reinstalling, no luck though.

Laptop - Toshiba Satellite A215 (Windows 7).

PS: Not totally sure which forum this belongs, so move where most appropriate, thank you .

Does the buzzing stop if you turn down the volume a cringe?

Has to be very low . Once I turn it up, I hear it.

Could be a busted audio controller.

You could just get a USB audio card. I don't know how USB headphones work.

Does your sound card have a built-in control panel where you can adjust EQ and bass settings? I had the same problem with my laptop but installed the Realtek audio control panel, I don't know if they make it for Windows 7 though.

Hope not . What may have caused it to go bad though?

Realtek does have a built-in audio panel where you can add in equalizer, environment effects and stuff but all those settings are off.
