Does the music actually play faster i.e. 3 min song plays in 1 min? or its just higher pitched?
I'd be looking for audio-software sound effects which have been turned on by mistake, but I think your aware of this stuff from your post here - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...=0entry220138
Go to Control Panel.
Double click the 'System' icon.
Click the Hardware tab.
Click the Device Manager button.
You will see a list of hardware devices recognised by your system.
Do any of them have a red or yellow symbol after the name?
If so look at the properties of the device indicated (by double clicking on it).
If you have the motherboard driver CD handy or have downloaded the latest (Win2000) drivers for the mobo then look under "Sound, video and game controllers" in Device Manager and uninstall the driver for the 'xyz AC97 Audio' press apply or OK to exit and reboot. Windows should redetect the sound 'card' and you can install the drivers. See if that helps.
P.S. Get rid of Real Player, you can still play the files with Real Alternative, download here:http://www.free-codecs.com/Real_Alternative_download.htm
Or Media Player Classic can play Real and Quick time formats and most others too http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Vi...r-Win2kXP.shtml
