    Hi,
    I have a Turtle beach Santa cruz card with latest drivers, I use Media Player Classic with latest codecs for video and coolplayer for music. The music is great in both avis and mp3s but the words are garbled. running XP Pro SP3. AMD 2.4, 4 gigs ram, 512megs shared onboard graphics ( NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE), Gigabyte M61P-S3 board
    Bad speakers? wrong audio settings? Any Ideas?

    Do the files play normally on another system ?? How about using another player (WMP) on your system ??

    I tried VLC on the a file, same result. The mp3 file play fine on my sansa player, besides most these files are 2+ years old and I have played them before.

    Yes I have, using MyDefrag. When I say that it's "garbled" I mean ALL dialogue avi's and ALL singing in mp3's is barely understandable, but the music is fine.

    Very strange, because presumably all audio components are combined in the original source. Is it possible that some EQ setting has gone haywire? Does any of your audio software have a voice removal effect (used to create bad karaoke background tracks)?

    Problem solved. Thank all who used skull sweat on this but it was an EXTREMELY stupid mistake by me. I plugged the speakers in wrong I had the subwoofer mixed up with the other speaker.
    Thanks again
