I had the problem years ago and a google search yielded high amounts of people specifically having problems with Skype outputs.
Considering this ONLY started happening after Skype and WoW/Mumble were running, I'm still more inclined to believe something occurred with the card.
Can confirm the Skype issue with a Dell Inspiron/Asus K Series/Macbook Pro.
Seems to be more than enough for 'coincidence'
edit: also, laptop is just over a year old.
and, I'm not trying to be all 'baw don't want your help' sounding, but this all feels too coincidental to be faulty wiring that's JUST showing face over a year later?
