Well my friends computer has a problem. When ever he plays any sound what so ever it comes out all fuzzy. I have updated the drivers and tried the speakers on other computers and they work fine. The computer is using a Legacy on board sound card.

It's in the BIOS. There should be a setting for it in there somewhere (I think it's in "Integrated peripherals", but I'm not 100%sure). Also check and make sure and EAX or simmilar mixer settings are set to have no effect.
