OK, i Finally got Windows Media Player to work (thank you to those people who helped if your reading this!!). It worked for about 2 weeks. It worked fine. Then one day I started to play some music, then the sound was messed up. It sounded like how they would sound if it was too loud. Then when the band started to sing, I could not really hear it. I figured that something happened when I turned on the computer so I just restarted it then. Still happened. I must have restarted about 3 or 4 times. It still happened. The I thought that it might b the music files that was messing up. so I tried playing a music cd with Media Player. It still sounded bad. Then I went and tried almost everything I could with the speaker controls on the Control Panel. It still did not work. I even plugged in my headphones to see if it was the speakers. IT still happened!! By now I was really mad because I thought I was going to have to buy another Sound Card for my computer. The I thought that it might have been the Media Player. So I started playing a song through LimeWire. Then it worked fine. Nothing was wrong with the sound. So then I went onto MySpace and started playing some songs. Those worked fine also. I knew it was not the music files that were being played, because every single one that was on the Media player sounded like that. And I could listen to them fine on my MP3 player. It also does that same thing with Videos. The picture is fine, just the sound is messed up. Any ideas?
