every once and while my computers audio speeds up alot (like a chipmunk) and i can't figure out why? it's intermittent and if i reset my sound card preferences then it goes away or if i exit the program and restart sometimes. Also if when the sound get sped up if i open the creative audio panel and test my speakers i can hear the front left and right perfectly and they aren't sped up but if i try any of the other speakers i hear nothing.

the majority of the time it happen when i'm playing WoW but sometimes it's not the game just itunes or something in the background and other times it's the game or just parts of the game.

i have a X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro Series if you need anymore hardware details just ask :)

thanks

alright i reduced the hardware acceleration.. I'm just curious as to why it would be intermittent? i found the problem why it was only playing out of my front 2 speakers.. in the sounds & audio devices all my other speakers were turned down all the way.. but how could that happen? i certainly didn't do it.

It may be something wrong with sound hardware itself.

If it's desktop, basic sound cards start at $15.
