Re:slow and poor sound

what do you mean by slow sound and when does it happen? how much RAM do you have on your computer?

On-board sound card and slow sound

On some MSI motherboards, after the sound driver gets updated it's necessary to clear the CMOS and reset the BIOS.

First turn off the computer. Then clear the CMOS using the jumpers on the motherboard. You'll need to check your manual for exactly how to do this.

Then replace the jumper in its original position. Turn on the computer. You will have to re-set the BIOS if you have any custom settings. The sound should work.
