Default Static in audio


Whenever I watch a movie on my computer I always here like this static rip every so often during the film. I know it isn't the disk because it happens to every movie and I have tried it on a dvd player and it works fine. Also, I have tried PowerDVD and DVDXPlayer and it occurs on both of those. This happened last year too when I played Fable, but I got new speakers since then. Any advice would be great, as it is really annoying to watch movies on my computer when there is a constant static. I kind of think it has to do with my dvd drive, but it isn't a bad dvd drive, so it shouldnt do that. Also I thought it could be my sound card, but then it would probably do the same for music.
