Crackling problem in traktor pro 2

Hey everyone, Ok so i have had traktor pro 2 for around 5 months now and its awesome. Recently im having some problems tho. When I play tracks I get a crackling sound through my speakers, its very annoying. It never happened until recently I changed the 4 port USB hub I have to a new one as the first one broke. I tried linking the DJM 900 up by itself to the software and still I get the crackling during playback so I don't think that's what it is. I've noticed that the waveform slows a little bit when its playing and the jumping starts as well. I recorded some music and during the playback you can still hear the crackling sound so its defiantly not a speaker problem. I Use a alienware m14x laptop, 2x Cdj 900's, DJM 900 nexus & the X1. Also I have tried adjusting the latency up and down, turning Wi-Fi ect off, using a script to optimize the computer and closed all programs and it still happens. I have updated both Cdj's and the DJM 900 & I checked a Latency checker and said that the system should be able to run it fine as well so I cant figure out what it is. The cpu level in Traktor itself stays very low and doesn't come up quickly or anything causing it to slow. The version I am using is 2.0.3 because when i upgraded to 2.5 it kept crashing over and over (Native Instruments are getting back to me about that). It Happens in all the versions I have tried so its not a 2.0.3 problem either i don't think. Could it be a recent program i have downloaded or something? Its driving me up the wall I have been trying to figure it out from Monday and have made no progress at all. If anyone could help me it would be very much appreciated, thanks

@Chris > Disabling any programs running in the background is the first step. Is the USB hub bus powered or has it an external power source? Have you tried using it without the hub and / or disconnecting the power lead running into your computer?

Are all power cables and audio cables separated?
