    playing sound under water

    i had my computer running win me, the sound played fine. i upgraded to win 2000 pro, now when i play a sound file in winamp, windows media player, or any player, it sounds like its playing under water, and its slow. like slowing a record player down by hand. i upgraded all the device drivers for motherboard, sound card( built in sound), none of which helped. i think it has something to do with win 2000 not letting things write directly to hardware.if anyone knows a fix for this, or how i can get around this, let me know, im out of options. thanks

    That's one of the reason that repelled me from using Win2000
    or XP, the pre-installed drivers
    But i ripped everything off XP and re-installed it from the ground-
    up.
    Try installing a new drivers, what card you have?

    I use the AC97 onboard sound with Win2K, and IIRC the drivers were a real pain.
    Try grabbing the VIA 4in1 drivers if you haven't already. All I can suggest is uninstall the sound drivers, download some new ones from VIA and install. Keep trying.

    Easy option, go out, pick up a good sound card (OEm is the cheapest) whack it in. Disable the onboard sound and love your machine forever.
