WinME audio playback glitch

Recommended Posts

So I installed Windows ME on a formerly Windows XP computer.

Everything is going smooth except for the fact that the sound is played sped up, super fast. It's really annoying. It's like the timer is off for the sound card or something. I tried turning the hardware acceleration down in WMP, and in control panel under Multimedia/Audio, but nothing changed.

Everything sounds like Alvin & the Chipmunks. The little chime when I click on something, MP3 files, when I play a CD, a WAV file... everyhing is high pitch and fast. I think the sound card is just not compatible with WinME. The front of the computer says, "Designed for WinXP" on it.

I tried searching for the Driver for the "AC'97 intel 82801 ba/bam controller" but found nothing for Win9x. Only a driver for Win2000 or XP?!?!

So I'm wondering, if it's possible, should I just put a totally new sound card (PCI) in this computer? Will that fix it?

It's a:

Compaq Presario 5000, 1.7 GHz, 512 Mb RAM, Board: Compaq 077Ch, Model: Compaq C01BDABB; BIOS: Compaq 686Y2 v1.05 09/06/2001

Problem solved. I installed a Creative Sound Blaster 16 PCI card.

Seems to have fixed all the audio problems.
