  If you have a power strip with surge protection, try taking that out.  It took me along time to find out that was where the crackling sound was coming from.

It's certainly a cheap fix if that's the problem. Besides, if it's a surge protector, it should be replaced every five years or so anyway.

They do lose their protective capacity over time as they are hit with surges. Metal oxide varistors are designed to be sacrificial, each spike and surge wears away at them until they are no longer able to protect. Unfortunately, there's not a good way to tell how much life they have left. Panamax makes some of the best surge protectors.
