I'm running my mic into a mixer plugged into my soundcard. I have a problem with crackling occuring about 30 seconds into recording. Could this be a sound card issue?
It could be that. It could be that you have it turned up too loud. Make sure that your sound is peaking at -18dbfs in whatever software youre using on your computer. Digital gear does NOT sound good when you push it too much.

What's your setup? Gear? What program are you running?
Gentle Robot - Chapel Hill NC Rock Band

Well, what I got told was turn the mic volume to nearly off, on my pc. And then compensate from that using the mixer.
As for set up, i'm running a Behringer Xenyx 802 into a stock Dell Sound card. I'm using a shure sm58 as my mic.
Sometimes this is caused by the power management software. Try disabling it.

How would I go about that?
Control Panel:Performance and Maintenance:Power Options.
It may be that Dell have a powermanagement applet also.
My Acer Notebook did.
How do I go about turning it off? What settings do I change?
I would guess it has something to do with the fact that you're not using an audio interface...

Yes, that is what I was going to suggest as well. The components on the inside of your computer may be causing interference.
Unfortunately I wouldn't be a very good person to recommend an audio interface.
