hi all os xp pro i have noticed recently poor sound quality and slowing down when i play music, i have change the battery on mother board and cleaned fans and m/board, just purchased new speakers thinking my old ones might be on there way out anyone got any ideas please.

Are you playing from CDs or from MP3s on your hard drive?

MP3s from hard drive through you tube ,media player,

Hmmm - I asked only to eliminate a CD drive problem as the issue... The only other thing I can think of is that you have something running in the background that is consuming huge amounts of processor/memory. You might want to check in Task Manager and look at 'processes' and 'applications', see if there's something strange going on.

Try double-clicking on the volume icon [bottom right hand corner] to bring up 'Volume Control'. Then click on 'Advanced' and make sure 'Microphone Boost' is unticked.
