|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.
