Is the fizzing coming from the speakers?
Just a bit of a random thought, but are you using a CRT (Monitor) or a
TFT style display?

If the CRT gets dusty/is in damp conditions, the HT(high tension, the
25kv used for the tube :)) can pre-arc (ions dissipate over the
junction, like in an ioniser), causing electrical noise [a fizz] which
may get amplified by the soundcard. This could also affect the display
as it could affect the magnetic coils around the tube.

Or it could be something else ^_^ :)

Just a thought.
