1) We usually don't mind answering Windows Questions, but put them in the proper thread (IE General).

2) Get something other than ME.

3) Try re-installing your drivers

Cheers

I'm thinking might have something to do with sampling rate... but I wouldn't know how to change that in the settings.

well I think once I played a 22khz file on a 44khz sound card or w/e... and it sounded like chipmunks. But it was probably played as a 44 khz even though it was a 22khz.

sound card

I.m so sorry the sound card is AC 97 and since it says your sound card does not support hardware buffering , sounds will only play back from software buffers ...that it was a sound card thing not a windows thing ...sorry new to all this
