Laptop 'popping' before playing audio

  JoE. 12:14 13 Nov 08

Whenever my laptop plays audio, for instance a music track, or a contact sign in noise on Windows Live, it pops before it loads and plays the track/sound. The strange thing is even if I turn the Windows Live sounds off, it still pops before the notification appears as if the audio file still plays. Any idea what it could be that's causing this?

I have my laptop connected to external speakers, but the popping noise still comes from the vicinity of the laptop. Perhaps it's something other than the speakers?

Perhaps by the large amount of time it's taken nobody to answer, no one knows?
