my sound device is using Creative SB Live!Value (WDM),Windows XP Home SP 2,801 mhz
however....recently my computer has a sound problem....all sounds that i played have echo.....and it play very fast.....i played a song from windows media player....the song's time moved from 2sec-9sec and follows...not from wmp actually...also from website,game,etc which results in a sound echo and the audio really sounds like blah blah blah.....now the problem remains.....but i can hear no sounds anymore....the echo problem is still there....i tried reinstalling the sound driver but its still the same.....

Try a different sound card (for comparative purposes)? Do you have onboard sound?

Your card's over 5 years old and no longer supported by Creative. All they offer is the last updated driver from 2003 and a patch
I try just the driver first
