Playback is playing slightly fast (all media)

I recently had to downgrade my system to a dell optiplex gx150 p3 1ghz 256 ram. It has an onboard sound card, not sure of the specs on it though. At first I had just swapped my hdd from my fried mobo to the dell, I had noticed the the playback of any/all media was playing like it was in ffw, not really fast, just enough to notice though. I ended up reinstalling everything (shot in the dark) But it's still doing the same thing. Any idea's on what could be causing this?

(sudo lshw -C multimedia)...

Two questions; what is the media you're trying to play[1] and what media player(s) have you tried?

[1] AVI (what codec), VOB, audio (again what codec, MP3?)
