sound garbled and distorted PCLinuxOS 2010

Hi there everytime I play a flash video, and then play music natively the sound doesn't work.

Or I can play flash and have sound but not play music with sound that's on my PC.

Or I play my music on my PC, say one song, and the other is high pitched distorted, and rings. I have to exit the program and start it again for it to play nice.

How do I resolve this most irritating bug?

Sing a song.

Well have you tried adjusting alsa mixer settings?

Get a terminal and enter the command:

--$ alsamixer

(Use Tab and Arrow Keys to set devices and volumes. When done press Ctl+C to exit. Try if your distro has an 'alsaconfig' script:

--$ alsaconfig

(that's an easy configuring)

Good luck.
