Default White Noise / distortion on Mac MBox on Playback

On playback (working on multile tracks) once I have moved or processed a region I get this ultra loud White Noise coming through monitors or headphones. Nearly blew my ears apart.

Anyone got any ideas what causes this?

Got the same earsplitting static today through my headphones.
Now I hear a terrible buzz through the mbox--won't play my audio tracks, just the whine.
Anyone got a solution?

This has happened to me a few times - one of two things: change the H/W size, (once you change, if the static goes away, then you can probably return it to its previous setting), close your session and restart protools, or restart the computer. You may have to do it more than once. Have you also noticed it in the headphones? Nasty, huh. I have no idea why it happens - I suspect it has to do with limitations of my computer.

Now you come to mention it, I have also got a buzzing from the MBox. I am using a firewire drive that I have not partitioned. I wonder whether that might have something to do with the problems.
It happens on every session now. Really frustrating.
