Default Sound on my laptop is fucked

Hi, soz if this forum isn't for like general advice etc, just thought I'd throw this out there as it's been pissing me off for ages now.

The sound on my laptop (Samsung RV520) has been fucked for months. When it loads up, it'll be fine for a wee while, but then it'll start to buzz and crackle etc. It's worst when I'm trying to do 2 things at once, eg. load a webpage while listening to music/watching a show. For the duration of the loading, the sound will distort like an old Dialup modem, rendering whatever I'm doing unlistenable.

The only way I've been able to sort of reset it back to normal is to log off/log on or reboot, but it's minutes, sometimes instantly, before it's back to its old tricks. So does anyone know why it's doing this? Any advice for how to cut it out? I hope it doesn't mean like my sound card is fucked or something, I know nothing about computers and am dead broke, so I can't afford to start replacing components or whatever that needs.

Sounds very similar to mine at the moment.

Mine only happens when streaming media online though. So when I'm watching a file in VLC, it seems to be fine. Does your sound fuck up when not streaming online? I'm no expert but if its only happening whilst online, like mine, I think its a memory issue. I don't have much RAM in my laptop and I've noticed that streaming online takes up a lot of memory, and then the sound will buzz.

There's no real fix apart from adding more RAM, but I try not to run any more programmes than I need to. I'm no expert either mate so not sure if this helps!

Edit: actually scratch that. It might not be your soundcard, it could be your fan. Which would explain why it makes more of a noise when the pc is being worked over more. Same to the guy who posted below you.

If you just listen to music does the sound come through okay? (without any other programs open)

I had awful trouble with my last laptop's fan, but this one has been so good, I'd hate to think it was the problem. It definitely seems like a problem within the audio, rather than like a functional hardware problem, it's the actual audio itself that distorts and buzzes and crackles like an old dialup. Or would it be something wrong with my fan making it do that anyway?

@Daemon_Rising, VLC is my primary media viewer, that's where it happens. Also on WMP, Youtube, other streaming etc. It's something inherent rather than wrong with any one system

I'm mobile right now, but this definitely seems like a combination of a heat issue and a possible bad driver. Try uninstalling the sound driver and reinstalling the most up to date driver

Okay. Go to control panel then device manager. Open up the sound with the arrow next to it, then rick click (it should be realtek) then uninstall. Then restart your pc. Report back once your computer has restarted.

Alrighty, restarted.

Looks like my Realtek has reinstalled itself after I restarted, was I wanting that?
