Sound is distorted, Windows XP

September 20, 2010 at 01:37:47
Specs: Windows XP
When I try to playback mp3's in winamp or itunes, or even windows media player, I get harsh distortion and static. In windows media player, the distortion doesn't occur as harsh or as often, and I can actually hear the song still... in the other programs its just continuous noise. I had starcraft 2 installed and loading that caused constant distortion. But instant messenger sounds work fine, and anything from the web can be played back crystal clear.

Im running windows xp sp3, i have a creative sound blaster audigy, originally i thought something may have got messed up when the noise first started occurring, and since I have nuked my hard drive, installed a fresh copy of windows + drivers, and I still have the same problem.
