Mpeg videos playing too fast

Some Mpeg videos play too fast on my new PC (both audio and video).  It was a good laugh when I first encountered the problem (listening to the chipmunk voices), but now I am at my wits end because I cannot make it stop.  I can not see any difference between the Mpegs that play at normal speed and those that don't.  The problem affects all media players I have tried.  My primary player is Windows Media Player 11.

I've been googling for an answer for the past two days but the only possible solutions I can find are "update your video and audio drivers" and "ensure your on-board sound is disabled".  I have done both and the problem continues.

My new system:
 - Intel Quad Core Q9300 @ 2.5GHz
 - 2 GB Ram
 - Sapphire ATI Radeon HD3800
 - Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio
 - Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit

I also have a Hauppauge WinTV HRV-1600 card.  However, I was experiencing this problem before I installed this card, so I'm sure it is not the problem.

Please help.
