I just ripped my CDs to lossless..

And there is a large amount of static appearing. Not really at any spesific sound frequency, but maybe those that are the loudest. Could this be because of some ****ty ass broken cd player on my PC? I cant think of any other reason why this would happen.

Sounds like read errors. Try EAC if it still gets clicking buy a new optical drive.

That made me a lot more comfotable. Ill just try my gamer rig back home, pretty much has the top of the line everything. Most of my CDs are in good condition, so hopefully i wont need EAC. Isnt that if you have like 5 or more scratches on it?

I think it's best practice to EAC no matter what. I might be wrong though. Better safe than sorry?

EAC is a program it can rip and compress to a variety of formats such as WAV, MP3 and lossless and you can specify your own choice encoder...

Certainly sounds like a rip gone wrong.
As suggested above you should re-rip using a CD ripper application which perform some kind of checks for the validity of the ripped audio data. C2 errors, AccurateRip, checksum sectors, ...

EAC, dBpoweramp, Rip, ...

Incidentally, EAC isn't the easiest program to set up. I highly recommend it, but here's the guide I use to set up EAC. You kind of do need a guide, given the sheer volume of options, most of which aren't optimally set by default.
