Sound freaking up with windows XP

Hey guys, I wondered if any of you could help me... I used my computer yesterday and it worked fine, no problem, then I opened it today and the sound jizzed up:
The musics I listen to on my windows media player doesn't play properly, some sounds are reduced to like 5% volume while the others are untouched and there is also some disturbing. Same story for youtube, the startup and closing sounds of windows are still untouched, but I think its because they are the same type of sounds than the ones that remains normal in youtube and WMP.
I tried re-installing the drivers,without success. Also can't re-install WMP because i got cracked windows. The problem is not linked to the speakers because I tried listening to the music with my headset and it alos jizzed up...

Please help!

Use vlc media player, not WMP.

ok thanks for that, but the sound is still fucked up, could it be a problem with the sound card or something?

Open you case again. Make sure all the cables connecting everything are secure connections.

All I know is if you use the lean-cracked windows XP (goes by some other name, basically just XP w/o any fluff, supposedly faster) then if you're using a real sound card, as opposed to w/e's integrated or virtualized, then everything starts fucking up.

Probably has nothing to do with your problem though :stfu:

If you mean TinyXP, I don't recall any such problem being noted, CAFG.

Have you tried an independent player? Like VLC Media player. How about game sounds?
Then maybe its your sound card. Try putting in another sound card or switching to onboard sound.
It could also be your cable connecting the computer to the speakers.
As a last resort you could try reinstalling windows.

I can't really help unless you do some more experiments to narrow down the cause of failure.
