sound comes out VERY distorted
I am currently using Linux Mint 13 maya 64 bit. When I boot into Mint, the login sound comes out fine. But immediately after, if I play a song using VLC, it comes out VERY distorted. I have to restart VLC a couple of times, seek through the song and only then the distortion stops and sound comes out fine. It remains good till the next boot when I have to do this again. Please note that everything was fine when I was using Archlinux 64 bit before.
