    I had a large music collection on my old system (XP sp2). After a motherboard death, I pulled the hard drive and installed it as a slave in my new system. (Presario SR1724NX).
    The sound quality is very poor. Sounds echo(y), and some of the vocal tracks are almost inaudible.
    I have tried Media Player 10 and RealPlayer and both sound alike.
    I am thinking the Sound Card is bad, but before I buy a new one I am hoping someone will have some suggestions.
    Also recommendations for a good sound card and speakers are welcome. I don't have a "Golden Ear", but I would like it to sound good.

    Thanks

    First thing to do is try uninstalling and re-installing the sound card drivers.

    is this onboard sound, if not try the card in another slot.

    remove it in dm, reboot and see if it works.
