I have a Dell Dimension 4550, Windows XP SP2 (Home Edition), 1GB RAM, 2.8GHz CPU, and most importantly my sound card is a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1. For as long as I owned this computer, every spec of sound that came out of this computer was clear as crystal. Now today, everything sounds like crap, when I play music it sounds all garbled and compressed-like. I can't stand it. I think I went through every single setting in the control panel and in all the applications that come with my sound driver CD. When I listen to video game music, it sounds like some channels are missing. Can anyone help me?! Please?
