Hey everyone, When I got home from work tonight I turned on iTunes on my Early '08 Penryn MBP, but right after it played a couple of songs, the song would pause by itself and my speakers make a popping noise. After a couple of seconds it would start playing the song again, but then it would repeat doing this over and over again. I quit iTunes and my speakers were still giving a popping sound. I opened up a Youtube video just to test if the problem was isolated to iTunes. To my surprise, the intermittent pausing and playing accompanied by a speaker pop was also present in Youtube. After awhile, the video would continue to play, but the sound would be completely dead. At the moment, my sound works again, but I still hear speaker pops at least once every 10 seconds or so. This is what leads me to believe it is a hardware issue. I have a couple of questions: Has anyone ever heard of or experienced this issue? Everyone talks about graphics card failures with the early '08 MBP model, but I haven't seen anything about audio pops and random pausing. What might have caused this? I'm pretty puzzled. Any other thoughts? All responses are appreciated. Thanks!
