I am having problems using my audio ports in Ubuntu 14.04. I didnt notice this before, because I use wireless speakers and they use a USB port. But today I tried to use my headphones and I heard horrible static and some kind of lag. I was listening to music on youtube at the time and I also saw that the video/music began to play at a faster rate. This was again confirmed when I listened to music on Rythmbox and the same thing was happening.
Then I tried to listen to music via my monitor that is connected to my computer with a HDMI-cabel. The static was there too, making the music hard to recognize... needless to say, it was unlistenable.. unless you like some really weird and crazy kind of music remixes. ;)
Otherwise the sound works perfectly via USB.
What can I do to fix this?
sudo lshw -C multimedia follows
