I have just had to replace the hard drive in my PC. I have reinstalled XP home, service pack 3. It all seems to work fine except the audio. all sound plays fine for a minute or so and then distorts for about 10 seconds and carries on distorting every minute or so. when i shut down the windows 'jingle' is garbled. I have updated drivers but it has made no difference. the sound was fine previously. i have googled around but cant find a solution that works, or one that someone not overly computer savvy can understand. I dont think its a speaker problem as the sound also distorts through headphones.
is this a common/fixable issue?
