    Hi All,
    Here's the gist of a strange situation.
    AMD 2200, 512Mb Ram, 120Gb HDD, CD-RW, DVD Rom AC'97 Audio (o/b).
    Now if you enter/leave windows (XP), all audio is okay, no distortion. If you play an audio CD (Tried Several) the sound plays okay for 30 secs or so, then it fades out (goes quieter, although you can here track still), then it fades back to normal volume. Downloaded tracks on hard drive are exactly the same.
    PC was new 6 months ago and all worked well, started 3-4 days ago and there is no obvious reasoning, no new programs, no viruses, no spyware. Installed all Windows Updates, could it be driver or perhaps time for new soundcard

    Have you tried installing th sound drivers on the cd that should have come with the computer.
    If so go to the website of the company that made the mobo and see if there are any driver updates for your motherboard.

    Try using a different media player. Eg. if your using windows media player, try using winamp.

    Yes, good suggestions. Update the drivers, and also, try changing your media player to Windows Media Player 9 or Winamp, which are great.
