Try reducing the hardware-acceleration level for your audio card by doing the following:
Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices
Volume tab > (Speaker settings area) > click the Advanced button
In the Advanced Audio Properties dialog box > click the Performance tab
Adjust the Hardware acceleration slider control towards ?None?
If that fixes it, search for other audio card drivers and be sure you have the latest directx.
A friend recently purchased a used PC. The HD was reformatted and Windows 2000 SP4 was installed after the purchase.
All video and audio plays about twice the normal speed. This occurs within Windows Media Player, as well as with embedded video on sites such as Youtube, and when playing CD's. I've searched the web and found numerous people with similar problems, but no one seems to have a solution.
I attempted to correct the problem and have tried the following, with no success:
- Adjusted hardware acceleration settings (including setting all the way to zero)
- Uninstalled and reinstalled video & audio drivers, including downloading new drivers from audio & video card manufacturer's websites.
- Updated BIOS for motherboard
Win 2000 SP4
Intel D845PT motherboard - board version AAA67848-504
Any help would be appreciated.
