Recently, my windows media player and real player have had sound distortion problems. All voices whether spoken or sung are a little too fast, making them all sound like mice or Alvin and the Chipmunks for those who remember. I tried the system restore method going back a month a half but it would not let me restore to any of those dates. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled both players. Still the same problem, however. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

If you have the soundcard software, re-install it

Thanks for your reply Keith, but as a fifty year old guy who remembers phones with party lines, please explain further. That is my excuse and I am sticking to it. I'm trying to keep up with the technology as fast as I can but please explain what I can actually do with reinstalling this sound card. Your patience with this rapidly aging baby boomer is appreciated.

Sincerely,
Andrew Pearlman
