Hi everyone

Firstly aplogies if this has been covered elsewhere in the forums or I have posted in wrong section.

Since my computer came back from the repair shop after it's near death expereince I have noticed that something is wrong with the sound. I only notice this with voice for example, when I connect to AOL the woman who says 'welcome to AOL' now sounds like she has has an injection of male hormones. When I tried to record a CD earlier it appeared my voice has gone down a few octaves too..!!

So does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can adjust this so my regular ladylike voice can return to normal :tazz:

Thanks in advance

Click start, control panel, sounds, speech and audio then sound and audio devices to look across the audio and voice tabs to check the default devices are set correctly

You can look for updated drivers for the soundcard, or uninstall the soundcard and re-install the drivers and software for it, if you have the installation CD, something has gone out of sync so re-installing should set it up as before

I deleted, downloaded drivers and reinstalled and everything is now as it should be!

Thanks very much, you've saved the PC from a short flight threw the window!
