I have a mini stereo connected to my system to provide the sound. After installing Mint, I noticed I have a medium loud crackle/buzz noise in my speakers like there is a ground issue. But I don't believe I have any ground issue as when win7 is running, I do not have this issue at all.
No noise problems while running the LIVE disk version. Only after install. I tried a few different versions of Mint and they all do it.
Funny thing is... when I install any RPM distro, this does not happen.
Anyone experience this and if so, what have you done to resolve it?

Are both your computer and the audio system connected through the same breaker/fuse in your breaker/fuse box, or are they on different circuits? If they are on different circuits, you could be getting a ground related noise feeding back from your HVAC system, refrigerators or other motors which kick on automatically.
I had something similar with strange noises, but only in Firefox and only when I scroll the webpage down. Problem was on the motherboard -> exactly old and damaged capacitors. After replacing them, FF is quiet

Well, not sure about others issues with noise in speakers... but I have two computers and it did it on both computers! But I installed the latest NetRunner OS and no more noise! This OS is in its infancy, but I really think it will be one that will zoom to the top!
However, I recently downloaded Mint 14 KDE and installed it on my HP Slimline Pavillion PC and for some weird reason... it no longer makes the noise. But installed it on a Dell Optiplex 790 and BAM... noise! So NetRunner OS will continue to power that PC. Can't wait for NetRunner to grow... it's a good one!
