Open the Control Panel-Sounds and Audio Devices-Volume tab-"Advanced" button in the "speaker Settings" section, then the "Performance" tab. Move the "Hardware Acceleration" slider back one or two notches.

Troubleshooting Audio Playback Issues in Windows Media Player
Hope this helps.
I was using media player that came w/ my computer, but it was playing too fast. So I started using realplayer. At first it played too fast, then I adjusted my audio control. Now If I play something off realplayer it still plays too fast. I don't know what the problem is. I have Microsoft Win ME, system name - OEMCOMPUTER, system model-EZ-2000 and Voyager System Series, system type-X86-based pc,processor-Intel(r)Celeron(tm)processorGenuinelintel-900MHZ, version 4.90.3000 build 3000. Please tell what I did wrong.
