I am running Win2000 Professional on a generic PIII-500MHz machine with 128MB RAM. The setup is a clean OEM install with an IDE 10GB hard disk, 8MB ATI Rage Pro AGP graphics, PCI Ethernet card, and an IDE CD-ROM drive.
I have a SOundblaster PCI128 audio card as well. All of my audio (WAV, MIDI, & CD) plays back highly distorted, but no skipping.
I'm using pretty stripped down powered speakers.
All of my PCI devices are sharing IRQ 9.
Any thoughts on solving this problem?
