Default My sound is "lagging"

This is an odd problem I have had for awhile. Out of the blue about 6-9 months ago, my sound started acting weird. Whenever I played music, games, anything that outputted audio, the sound I heard was slightly slowed down and actually started tripping over itself (i.e. it regularly alternated between slow and fast with there being good amount of noise each time it did this). I have reinstalled the WinXP OS without it affecting anything. The sound card (a Hercules XP card) doesn't appear to be the problem because after installed the OS, I listened through the mobo's audio out. I am running a MSI RS480M2-IL w/ 1.5 gigs RAM; so, it shouldn't be a hardware problem.

The only thing that I have found that remedies this problem is leaving the computer on for awhile (a day or so). After it has its "warm up" period, it doesn't matter if I put it into standby mode for a night or a weekend, as long as it hasn't been turned off, the sound is fine. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?
