I'm not too computer savvy myself, my guess would be a faulty sound card.

Also, in case you don't know how to find that info, there's a nice little utility for doing so: [link]

It would help if you can tell us more about the computer, e.g. make, model, motherboard and OS (32bit/64bit?). It just might be a driver issue.

Well as in anything, something can go out. I had one of my USB ports go bad and now have to use a hub. Could be your speaker jack is wearing out, especially if you plug stuff in and out all the time

Then you should take it back to where you got it or call customer support for that brand computer.

Check where the phono jack meets the pc audio out. There might be an alien karaoke device that was planted there when you were up getting a pepsi from the fridge. If it is there, destroy it immediately - it enables them to intercept your audio output and sing over it with their own insufferably bad vocals, which no one should have to tolerate. This case has been well documented in the past. They tend to like Celene Dion. hehe =p

No it sounds like you audio bit rate could be dropping. I hear a similar effect when I am listening to my wireless headphones and they start to go out of range.

If it was me Id try this:

1) Find out what soundcard you have and go to the manufacturers website and download the latest drivers for your model.

2) If that doesn't work, check again for any loose connections or broken wires. (Which youve already done by the sound of things)

3) If that doesn't work, do a system restore, to a point in time when the audio problem wasn't an issue. (Start->Programs->System->System Restore)
