Its only just started recently, but im getting a weird 'stuttering echo' sound in certain games and whilst playing DVDs. Im using XP Pro, and the sound card is an onboard C-Media jobby. Everything has been fine until recently, so im pretty sure its a software or driver prob, but im not sure what. Like I said, DVDs are all affected by this problem, and the Far Cry and Killswitch demos have also been affected. Could it be yet another DX9 or Windows Media 9 decoder problem? Anyone with a previous experience of a problem like this - i'd be grateful for any help. Thanx.
