trouble shoot help: sound system plays music files too fast

When I play music on my computer (IBM), it comes out sounding too fast (voices sound like "the chipmunks"). My operating system is windows 2000 professional. It doesn't matter which software I use (winamp, windows media player, etc). If I download music to my MP3 player it sounds normal. Anyone with ideas about what is going on?

Good news. Well known problem.

So far, 10 for 10, finding and installing the newest audio card driver resolves this.

Re: trouble shoot help: sound system plays music files too f

I have a similar problem; similar nothing, the exact same thing! Sometimes after a reboot, my Win 2K, PIII 1GHz machine sound works fine. Then following another reboot, back to the chipmonks! Would it help to search for new sound drivers? Unfortunately, there are many drivers for the sound/controllers and I don't consider myself to be driver-hunting savy. Suggestions/comments? Also, please note that the machine just came back from the shop after having the HDD whipped clean and Win2K re-installed. Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays to all....

All the forum needs is...

The make and model of your sound card.

Then many here can help you find it.
