    my computer has had no problem like this before.
    i have been listening to music on media player all day, watching anime in japanese with subtitles and hearing all the normal computer sounds.
    I paused the music to go downstairs and when i got back to press play all of a sudden it was static. The kind of noise from a blank tv channel like the movie the ring.
    its not just media player. its every single sound. Msn alerts, vlc player, anything off the net too.
    Ive read a tonne of similar problems but none the same. my static is only there to replace the original noise.

    Ive tried rebooting, system restore, checking everything to do with sound in device manager, run a couple of different virus scans....I have not had one single error report on any program....

    oh man if someone can help with this ill love you
    please try something, i havent seen anything like this anywhere

    i have windows xp
