Hello austen!

What are your PC specs?
What are you doing when the sound lags? playing games? watching videos?

Hello.

Specs? Erm...

Compaq Presario
AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3400+
1.81 GHz
896 MB of RAM
200 GB

Blah blah blah.

I'm not doing anything when this happens. It's like this even when I restart my PC. The sound also seems to be lower than it should be?

Are there any hardware conflicts in device manager?
Are your drivers up to date?

Go into control panel > system > hardware > device manager.
Have a look under sound, video and game controllers.
Do any items appear with a red cross or a yellow exclamation mark?

Have you got the latest drivers?
What do you mean by lag?

Not yet.
The sound runs a few seconds slow and it seems to be playing low. It's kind of like how people sound in slow motion, but not as bad..

this is my first post im 11 :whistling: so im not the BEST Advice around here but im better than most 11 year olds :blink: and ive seen no answers, anyways try to completly uninstall your sound card (not phsicaly),just program wise then reboot, then it should say "New Device Found!" go through the wizard running XP you should be able to find the driver in the xp driver folder. BUT make sure you have a driver for it before you uninstall, if you dont tell me and ill get you something to get the driver with
