Hey folks, a strange audio issue has crept up for me.

When I'm watching flash videos (like Youtube, MLB.com, etc etc) and the video is on the screen, my audio gets VERY warbled. My connection is fine, it's not a data transmission issue. When I scroll further down the page so that the video is no longer visible, the audio seems to clear up.

I have an ASUS p5nsli mobo, with a Pentium D 3.2ghz and 4gb of physical ram (Windows XP pro).

Video card is nVidia GeForge 9800 GT

I have uninstalled and reinstalled all of my audio drivers, to no avail, as well as the adobe products (flash player and shockwave player).

Other media types play fine with no issues.

I also noticed today (not sure if it's related) that I have some unknown devices in my Device Manager (not sure how... this setup has been physically unchanged for well over a year).

Under Other Devices I see listed SM Bus Controller and Unknown Device.

Thanks in advance for any help.... I'm stumped.

Well.... I reinstalled my nvidia video drivers and things seem to be a little better off now...

The device manager issues are still there, however.

Is there any way you can post a screen shot of your device manager showing this unknown device expanded?
