In April of this year I ordered a new computer from ibuypower.com. I wasn't thrilled with its state when I received it, as the graphics card was defective and several cables were unattached. But, when I got a replacement card my games played just fine, which was my main concern.

However, shortly thereafter I noticed that there was a problem whenever I tried to play sound through my browser. The sound is really muffled to the point that I can't understand anything that is being said. My normal browser is Firefox, but the same thing happens with IE and Chrome.

I have done everything I can think of, uploaded drivers, checked settings, etc. If anyone has a suggestion as to what I can do to solve this problem I will be eternally grateful.

In 'properties', make sure it's set to either CD or DVD quality

Thanks for your response! Alas, I checked as you suggested but the setting was already on "DVD."

I appreciate your trying to help though.
