pro tools problems

I got Protools M-Powered 8 v8.0.4cs for christmas and am running it on a macbook pro OS X v10.5.8 with an M-audio Profire 610 interface. I'm just messing around trying to get the feel for Protools and recording different instruments and mics. when I playback a recording, it will play fine, then randomly a patch of static will appear that is extremely loud and invisible on the waveform. It will also mix up the audio track when it does this as well. It will insert a guitar part from earlier in the song where it shouldn't be in the track.
I've tried shutting down all other running applications other than protools to free up CPU usage, but this hasn't solved anything. If I try to punch in a recording over one of the bad ones, it doesn't fix anything. Random static will still pop up.
It has also done this when I import audio files such as a file from iTunes.

Anyone know what the problem might be?


Also, if there's any other information about anything that I may have left out let me know.
