All desktop audio plays fast, until I start a youtube video

  1. All desktop audio plays fast, until I start a youtube video.. and put it on pause... then all other audio also normalizes. So in order to listen to an mp3, watch a movie, or anything like that.. I need to have a youtube video (or a adobe web flash video) running.

    Computer games are exempt from this phenomena and exhibit only normal audio behavior. Thats why I wrote "Desktop audio."

    Soundcard: Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatality
    Windows XP Pro SP3
    Mobo: Asus Striker Extreme
    CPU: Intel Extreme QX6700
    2gb ram

    The onboard audio is disabled in BIOS btw.

    This is a very weird problem. Anyone have a tip? :)

    Try re-installing and updating the driver for the sound card if you haven't done so already, see if that helps.
