Hi all,i have a bit of a problem and would love some advise please!i bought a second hand PC,its made by TINY,all i know is it has a processor speed of 1.7ghz and and a 40gig hard drive.I know its not the best in the world but seems to work fine,the problem is,when i listen to music online it does'nt sound right,it sounds like the right speed but the only way i can describe it is that it sounds a bit like the chipmonks??Also when i watch videos it plays in bits(stops/starts) and the picture quality is quite poor.I am on dial-up still(broadband soon) but thought i would be able listen to music at least.I dont know wheater i need new sound and graphics card?PS when i play dvd's the picture quality's great but still sounds funny,but im sure the sound was ok when i played a dvd when i got the computer home after buying it?i also have all the latest windows updates and quicktime player updates,thanks very much,help please!! Dave...

Are you using on motherboard sound or do you have a separate soundcard?

Have you tried to install the latest drivers for either of the above options.

Do you have a codec package installed have a look this one K-Lite Mega Codec (various sizes)
