nforce 2 onboard sound clicking and popping?

Ok, I've been running my new Slack 10.1 install for awhile now. All of a sudden, however, it seems to be having some sound issues. Whenever the system tries to process something (i.e. makes a call to the CPU), the speakers click and pop. I've tried different speakers, etc. the signal is being generated by the on-board sound card. I'm not sure why it started doing this all of a sudden. I haven't upgraded or installed anything that should affect the sound card.

My system is setup to dual boot to windows, so I thought I'd see if it does in there. Nope, it works just fine in windows. So, it's definately something with the drivers or something Linux loads up. It could be a resourse confict, but I'd need help on how to track that down.

Has anyone else had a problem like this? Also, I'm not sure that it's realated, but I couldn't get the NVIDIA unified drivers to install on my machine. I get "Unable to load the kernel module 'nvsound.o'" and it tells me to put the kernel source on my system (which is already there).

Any thoughts?

I use alsa snd_intel8x0 driver with my audio nvidia2 onboard sound card.

It works fine here, with nvsound I never success to get sound with my tv
card (connected to the input of the audio card). I use kernel 2.6 though

Did you try to run the installer with -k option as :
sh -k $(uname -r)
