    Hi. Installed Service Pack 1 for Vista regular edition and now when I
    play Halo all the sounds have reverb on them. How do I get rid of
    this?
    Thanks.

    Whatever the `regular` edition is meant to be,Install updated drivers for
    your audio controller/sound card.

    OK. Why would Windows mess up what I had to begin with?

    OK I updated the drivers and the reverb is still there.

    Windows would not mess up with what you had but would try to improve it to
    make it even better.
    Perhaps the game itself has a patch released in order to work with SP1
    properly?

    Hi,

    Be sure to go to the computer manufacturer's website (not the chipset
    manufacturer website) and look for driver and software updates that may fix
    any SP1 issues. For example, Sony Vaio laptops had sound and screen saver
    issues due to their software interfering with Vista SP1. I know this from
    experience. After loading SP1 I had sound and screen saver problems which
    were solved by downloading BIOS and a driver from Sony's website.

    As was suggested you might want to go the game software's website to see if
    they have any fixes, too.

    good luck,

    oscar

    Check your sound card. Some sound cards have "effects" like
    reverberation and sound "from a toilet stall", etc.

  8. It may not be Windows. It may be an issue with the driver or a problem
    caused by new program. Hard to tell. In troubleshooting it is easiest to
    start with the hardware, though.
