I am fairly newbie, but not afraid of using the terminal and such. I know that this problem is more than likely my sound card because I have Fedora 9 running in addition to Mint 5 Elyssa and I have the same issue. I have tried nearly every "googled" solution out there. Some of these did help slightly, but none have fixed it completely. I prefer to use Amarok for my music and such, but this problem occurs with mplayer and others. When I have amarok "up" as apposed to closed in the system tray, the sound rarely scratches. This problem occurs while playing Urban Terror also, so it is not just music. This is NOT an NVidia Nforce motherboard, as those I know almost always require drivers from NVidia. If you would like the output of any commands or want me to try anything, just say so. I have all the updates so far with gnome desktop. I am tri-booting Linux Mint 5 "Elyssa", Fedora 9, and Windows Vista. On a side note, my on-board video card is functioning at full capacity, but in firefox or any text editor, when i scroll, lines blur together so to speak. If I highlight the text it fixes itself. This issue is just annoying and I don't feel like bothering with it unless you have had that problem and solved it.
