Audio and Video playback on my pc is accelerated and voices sound like the chipmunks.  This problem even happens with system sounds.  I have the following hardware and software:

Win2000 Pro
Compaq EVO D500 MT
P4 1.7 GHz
DVD/CD-RW Combo

How do I remedy this?

Possibly try a windows update ind use microsofts suggested driver for windows 2000. Got to Start/Windows Update
on thier page click product updates, and in the list driver updates would be all the way at the bottom.

Well, my vendor came through for me.  Apparently there is problem with the Intel 815 chipset on a Compaq EVO system when a Win2000 image is applied.  To remedy this all of the drivers need to be uninstalled and re-installed.  I tried it before with the sound and video, but apparently the NIC driver must be removed also.

After reinstallation, all sounds are at normal speed.
