Whenever I play a WMA or WMV file the track plays normally except it has random robotic sounding

squeaks all the way through. It started randomly one day. I tried playing WMA and WMV files on another

program other than windows media player, however the squeaks were still there. I then tried altering the

hardware acceleration to nothing, however the problem persisted. Next I tried uninstalling and reinstalling

the sound card drivers (NVIDIA nforce), however this did nothing. I have all of the updates windows update

can offer me. I can play MP3's and MPEG's fine and as far as the computer is concerned there is no problem

(everything working properly.) Please can someone help me fix this stubborn problem?

I'm just guessing here - but are there any other electronic devices near your system? They may be causing a problem.

Also, try moving your cables around - does this change anything?

I turned off everything except the speakers and computer and it was still there. I then tried different speakers but it still continued! This problem has got me stumped. Thanks for the advice though
