This is driving me nuts and i can't figure out what it is exactly or how to fix it! If there is no sound playing, folder click sounds, instant messaging sounds, they're all doubled and overlapped, sort of like an echo. But if say, i play a song, or a video, while it's playing, clicking and im sounds are normal and play only once. I've tried updating sound card drivers, but that didn't work. If anyone can help me diagnose this problem, it would mean the world to me. Thanks and +rep to all who help.

UPDATE: It seems to be the audio driver. I uninstalled it along with the software it came with, and restarted my computer. When i logged back in, windows used it's own generic audio driver that gave me basic functionality. When i tested it, the sounds were fixed! nothing was doubled, all was good, so i thought I'd reinstall the latest driver to see if everything would be good. Installed, restarted, and now I'm having the same old problem. :/

Maybe reverting back to an old driver would do the trick?

UPDATE: Problem solved. I needed to check "Disable all sound effects" in the enhancements tab under the speakers properties. So strange, but hey, I'm not complaining. This is also kind of embarrassing... probably should've started the thread after trying absolutely everything. Oh well. Maybe this thread will help people in the future.
