Defrag causing poor quality sound

Hi I defragged my hard drive as it was running slow (on Windows XP). Now the sound is very poor quality using either Media Player or Winamp whether playing an mp3 file, or a CD, or streaming music from the internet. Can you advise how to get the sound quality back to normal?? Thanks Steve

Sounds like you may have an overheating problem - I can't think of anything that a defrag would do that should affect sound quality. If you have a diagnostics program that lets you check internal/CPU temperature, just have a look and see what it is. Check all the fans are running and nothing is obviously blocked. Post back if this doesn't seem to be the problem and with a bit more detail of your audio system setup and we can hopefully find a solution. :)

When I use Winamp, it does not play and instead shows Bad sound drive error


Check it if it works with Windows Media Player. Install the latest sound driver from the manufacturer's website. Some motherboards' sound drivers refuse to work. I think your PC is assembled.

Hi i have a western digital home edition 2 tb hard drive that now when i play an avi movie file i get sound and no picture or picture and no sound also these files play fine on windows media player so now...


> these files play fine on Windows Media Player

Then, continue to use Windows Media Player.

Or, tell us what alternative program that you use that gives "sound-and-no-picture" or "picture-and-no-sound".
What version of that program?
Windows XP? Vista? 7?
Any more "possibly-relevant" details ?

When I Play Music through Winamp/Media Player it


That is unusual - pressing in case should not effect play - not like a tape drive would.
Are you playing from CD or Hard-drive?
If Cd - try copy music to hard-drive and see how it plays - if ok - then something may be rubbing on CD in CD-Player? But that would give read errors. Have to remove CD Player and clean it.

Winamp or Media Player


Winamp is much better at sound quality, in my opinion, than windows media just because you are able to control the equalizer and sound effects. Windows media player does not allow for this. Not to mention, winamp takes up less memory while running, which makes the playback flawless.
