    Hello, I have had this problem happen occasionally but now it will not stop. The sound sounds like its being played on an old record player thats out of speed and constantly changes speeds. I went through the microsoft troubleshooter (yes i am desperate) it obviously did not solve anything other than assuring me that plugging my speakers in might help.

    Your name is too stupid. Do you think something so immature will inspire folks to help you?

    Wow mystic way to break him down you ***.
    @ I poo
    is your sound coming from an onboard sound card? This is normally a huge problem with older (3-5 years) will be very distorted. If it is not onboard, who should tell us what you sound card is this will help us greatly with helping you. and the last thing is ignore idiots like mystic, they will come and go, just make sure they dont bring you down.

    I had the exactly same thing happen to me (sounds were kinda garbled).
    This happened when I used a new sound driver.
    Even if it was compatible, I still got "strange" sounds from it.
    Changing to another version fixed that.
    Try re-installing your sound card driver from your mobo CD.
    Even better if you visit your mobo manufacturers website and d/l any updated drivers from there.

    try what dobb said
    if that doesnt work, go out and pick up a very basic sound card, like $20, i found that onboard sound always comes out crappier sounding than a dedicated card.
