WMA/WMV/MP3 Audio playback issues :(

    Whenever I use WMP to play an MP3...the song plays with a considerable amount
    of static coming through the speakers. The static is consistent, and
    proportional to the volume. I've installed, uninstalled, reinstalled my sound
    drivers-they are all up to date. I've tried every possible volume
    combination as well....and nothing has worked for me.

    I decided i should try a different player so i installed MUSICMATCH 10. All
    of my MP3 files play and sound fine with MM10. I-tunes is also able to
    playback my MP3's without any problem. But when I try to play an MP3 through
    either Winamp or WMP...I still get the static.

    Furthermore...Regardless of whatever player I use, I am NOT able to play WMA
    files without hearing these god-awful skipping/feedback sounds over the
    track. It sounds like a combination of the WMA/a dentist drilling/white

    So to summarize....

    -WMP plays MP3 files with a conistent static hiss
    -WMP plays WMA/WMV(audio) garbled, distorted, and like a dentists office

    If anybody is familiar with either of these issues PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE shed
    some light on them for me. I'm really starting to pull my hair out

    If you turn off WMP's EQ, does that help... ?
