Default Why does my music play so damn slow? please help

Im am having problems playing mp3 music. For some reason during playing it jumps and plays slowly. It sounds as if the computer is struggling to play the song, as if it does not have enough resources.

The computer was wiped and reinstalled jsut the other day so it shouldnt have too much crap running, and the specs are up to scratch:

AMD 3000+
1GB kingston (2x512)
120GB SATA HDD
Windows XP Pro
Sound blaster live 5.1

I ahve tried playing the music with media player, musicmatch jukebox and winamp, with no success.

Any suggestions anyone?

Install the latest codecs. Try www.free-codecs.com

make sure the song isn't damaged. Also install soundcard drivers.

Wierd, try the codecs, although i've never had problems with mp3s even on my old 233MHz Win95 PC.
