    Not sure if I hit the right area or not, but here goes.

    Windows Media Player 7, on Windows98se, is playing music back fast. It isn't chipmunks fast, but a little bit faster than it should. Is there a setting somewhere in Windows, that I should change? It happens whether listening to a radio station or a cd.

    Thanks guys,

    What media are you trying to play?
    Have you tried using the same media in another program?
    Maybe something wrong with media or recording.

    I haven't tried the cd in another program or computer, but it is also happening with the radio stations. I will try your suggestion, and see what happens. Thanks.

    The station or cd doesn't seem to matter. It is still playing fast.

    Have you tried removing and reinstalling the sound card via device manager? Do you have the most current drivers for the sound card?

    Thanks for the sugeestions.
    I removed and reinstalled the sound card. (soundmax integrated digital audio). The current driver is from 2000. I found one online from 2002. When trying to install it, I got a message saying the current driver was the best driver.
    I uninstalled Windows Media Player (version 9. I believe I said 7 originally. sorry). I am in the process of reinstalling Media Player.

    Windows Media Player version 7 was reinstalled, and it is still playing fast. I am betting that there is a Windows setting somewhere that needs changed, I just don't know what or where.

    any ideas?

    Thanks for the help!

    Did you try to force it to use the new one anyway?

    I tried once, and didn't have much luck, then I got pulled away on something else. I haven't had a chance to get back to it.

    The problem is definitely sound driver related.
    As with all onboard chips, you need to get the latest/correct driver from either the pc or motherboard manufacturer.

    Thanks a lot guys. I got an updated driver from the pc manufacturer's site, and it took right away. That seemed to correct the problem.

    I appreciate the help.

    Take it easy,
