Hi Everyone, I hope you can help me. I have Windows 11, Acer Aspire 5 PC. I love my music. But something has happened. When I play my music from internet Deezer, or YouTube, or Jango etc it is distorted. You could say "scratchy". I have tried every possible thing, with audio settings etc. Even did a update Realtek audio thing, but all to no avail. Now here is something strange; when I play the music I have on my PC in the music library with Windows Media Player, it is also distorted. But, when I play the same music in my music library with the Groove Music (Now called Media Player) there is no distortion. It has got me baffled. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.... Ken.

Mine is playing okay. Check speaker

Buy a JBL speaker and you'll have great sound. And you don't need to listen from your computer speakers.

Thanks Rachael and Min. But it does not solve my problem. I have checked so much now, but still got the problem. I appreciate your help. Take care, and cheers ...
