OK, I'm running 2000 Pro... I just got some new speakers for my computer, and the audio plays at twice the rate it should.... Everything sounds like chipmunks... I tried to install a Realtek driver, and it crashed my computer... I restored, and ditched the driver, but I still have to listen to everything at double speed....

I need a geek!

Check the special effects in your soundcard software. My soundblaster card has a list of special effects in the software, one of which makes it sound like the chipmonks.

As far as I know changing speaker doesn't affect sound played. Your problem seems to be fully concerned with sound driver. Plz let us know which sound card are you using.

I have Intel 82801FB ICH6 - High Definition Audio Controller on Realtek HD audio driver. It has setting to increase/decrease playback speed under Karaoke settings. May be somehow you have increased the playback speed.

Check your sound card driver setting, and everything would be ok. Just forget that your speaker is faulty.
