Crackling coming from left channel when playing back sounds

Hi I'm really scratching my head with this one and was wondering if anybody could help. I
have a PC with an m-audio audiophile delta 2496 card and after my PC has been switched on
for 10-15 minutes, I get a crackling coming out of the left speaker. If I reboot the PC,
it disappears for a while again!
I have audiophile > behringer 802 mixer
> krk monitors. Win 7 SP1 64bit.
I have tried running the sound card
straight to the monitor and the crackle is still there (not the mixer at fault). I have
also swapped the L and R cables round, crackle only from left cable (not the monitor at
I have checked all hardware setting, IRQ and the like, no
It's really bugging me. There's no crackle if I record anything
(even if it was crackling at the time) so if it is the sound card at fault, it's only on
Can anyone offer any advice on anything else to try?

I suspect our old friend the ground-loop is at work again.
I've never had
issues until I installed a new set of monitors a couple of weeks ago. It was like I could
hear all those little electrons busying themselves bustling about doing whatever they need
to do. But every so often it seemed as if they'd stop for a breather before starting up
Fortunately I had an ART DTI sitting here doing nothing so patched that
into the monitor inputs - silence!
