Odd problem I have here. Yesterday the sound was fine, but today I opened Winamp to play some music and I noticed that some of my mp3s seemed to be corrupted (has a strange distortion in it) . I checked the files by copying them to a disc and played them on another machine and they were fine. I checked my sound settings and everything was still like I always have it. After I checked all that, I opened Winamp again and this time all everything sounds corrupted. I checked all Winamp settings and made sure everything was the way I keep it. I then opened some of the wav files from the system, they also have this problem. I tried testing sound schemes in the Sound Properties and it all has the same problem, as do every other sound my computer makes(like clicking links and dialog box sounds popping up). I played a couple of movie files(mpg and avi) they made the horrible distortion too. There seem to be two things that are immune to this, the Speaker Setup in AudioHQ and PowerVCR. Anyone know anything else I can check or what might cause this?
