Hello, i wasn't sure where to put this thread. So if you feel like it should be moved, be my guest.

Anyway, i reformated my computer and reinstalled Windows XP today. As usual i started off by installing all the drivers and fixed all settings. Everything went very smooth until i wanted to listen to some music. I played a song, but it didn't sound right. It was very wavy, and the singing was almost completely muffled out. Some notes didn't work right and it was just strange in general.

So to try out the sound i went to youtube. It was the same here. The sound, especially when someone spoke, was very choppy and wavy. I really don't know what causes this. The only thing i could think of is that it could be the drivers. But i've installed them, and i've never had this problem after a reformat before. I also doubt that the speakers are broken since i didn't have the problem earlier today, before the reformat.

I hope someone can provide a good and fast answer. Thanks!

I've checked them, and i notice nothing out of the ordinary. Is there anything special i should look for?

Edit: I fiddled around with the settings for a while, and there was some DTS Neo:PC setting that was messing with me. It was set to cinema, but should've been on music. I don't know. Anyway, it works now. Thanks anyway! =)
