Experiencing noise when recording

I use Windows 10 and Audacity 3.3.2

Sometimes I want to capture a program on during the night. I start recording at midnight and then stop it 8 hours later. I then go in and clip off the front and back and save what I want.

I notice that after about 5 hours of recording, noise appears that sounds similar to playing an old record. It sounds like random ticks and pops. I’ve recorded many 3 hour programs very successfully. It only occurs after I record for around 5 hours or more.

Is there a setting I can try that will alleviate this? Thanks in advance.
