    Ok, so around Christmas of 2015 i had my graphics card die on me and in a mixture of me not understanding that it was the graphics card that was dying and being slightly frustrated i shut my computer down by pulling the plug. This resulted in an almost useless PC as i guess i interrupted something important. I spent countless hours reviving the computer and finally saved it by rebooting the BIOS through a USB-flash drive. However i've had a tiny but annoying problem since then. All sound i record or input (skype, discord and other chatting sites) is now high pitched and the overall recording sound is generally bad. How did this happen? Was there something wrong with the BIOS is loaded? Can i have damaged the internal sound card in the motherboard while tinkering in the machine, might there be anything wrong with my drivers or is it some other issue?

    I should say i have a stationary PC with Windows 10 and the BIOS version i now run is: American Megatrends Inc. 1203, 24.05.2012. I am also terrified to go back into the BIOS in case i ruin the PC again so i hope there is an easier solution. Thank you in advance to every helping hand!

    Wow... quiet a story there.
    Have you tried removing the dead graphics card and if you happen to have a sound card, try removing it and re installing it ? That's what I would do first as its a result of brute force damage...lol
