Corrupt audio

Hi all I am at my wits end with this

Bought new speakers, basic ones but good sound, and they worked fine. Now 3 months later they are awful.

They sound like they are vibrating badly and the sound is corrupted.

I have played with various codecs recently etc, and suspect I have a conflict somehere.

In device manager there are a variety of audio and video codecs listed.

Note that when I run videos from the hard disk they also are corrupted.

Help

Hi georgezx9. Do the speakers sound good on the Windows starting and closing sounds? You can test these via "Control Panel" - "Sounds and Audio Devices" - "Sounds". Click on a Program event and click the right pointing arrowhead alongside the Sounds: box. If that sounds wrong, then I suspect a fault in the speakers. If both speakers are affected it could well be the speaker power supply. This is more likely to cause distortion when the volume is turned up.

Try unplugging and reinserting your speakers' connecting leads.

You could try a different media player.
After adding a subwoofer system I suddenly got terrible (and apparently incurable) high end distortion using WMP.
Changed to Winamp and the result was perfection.

Results were also perfect with Media Monkey
