    Hi Everyone,

    Here's a weird one for you....

    I have a Compaq laptop (work) and when I am in hotel rooms away from home I like to play MP3 music files as we all do. However, when I play these music files they start off OK, then after say 5 to 20 seconds, the music plays in slow motion!!! I don't know if it is actually half speed, but the notes are the same pitch - just down an octave or so...!! I can press 'pause' then 'play' straight away and it resumes at normal speed, but again after 2 to 20 seconds resorts to half speed ...

    This happens for MP3's with both Windows Media Player and Winamp..... strange eh!

    Has anyone experienced the same problems ??? and does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do??
