It's not your hardware its a problem with Fedora. Your best bet is to use Fedora 10 until its fixed. Even Fedora 10 has issues with pulseaudio, and in that case just switch to ALSA. Fedora is the only distro I know of that has this sound problem so it may be smart to just switch to another distro if you listen to music alot. Try Debian or Ubuntu.

It may be a little drastic to switch distros. (I've grown fond of Fedora 11 over the past few weeks.)

But you might need to run through some troubleshooting steps: PulseAudio fixes and workarounds

If push comes to shove, you can remove PulseAudio from your system altogether (which is what I did). Those instructions are at the same URL, under the heading "To really remove PulseAudio for some reason".
