Can a virus make your computer sound robotic?

Specs: Windows XP
I played video games late into the night last night and it appears that I now have a sound problem. All of the audio coming from my computer sounds robotic.

It could very well be that my hardware is defective. I often have heating issues with my computer and a lot of times I have to leave the casing open in order to allow my computer to not overheat. But here's the weird part. When I used System Restore to roll back the computer to a previous state, the log-in music plays perfectly through the speakers for the first time I run it on that save state. It is only when I get to the desktop that the robotic sounds start playing through the computer again whenever I try to play a sound and from that point on the login music sounds robotic as well.

Can a virus do this? I'm trying to decide whether or not I need to go buy a sound card.

Usually viruses exhibit more and different symptoms than audio issues. My guess is that is something else and sound card definitely on the list of suspects.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
