Re: laptop sound

It sounds as if you have got your inbuilt microphone active and it is amplifying the sound coming from your speakers, try muting the microphone off through your sound or speaker icon normally on your task bar on right hand side, this happened to me when i first installed a web cam and set up the microphone volume. Hope this helps, other than re installing sound card drivers.

I hear echo sound every time i play music/movie and i cant figure out to turn it off "how"

Does it happen with headphones in as well? If not, do you have a built-in-microphone? Sometimes the sound coming of the speakers can be picked up by the microphone, resulting in an echo sound. Make sure that the microphone is off (or test it by covering it up while playing some music), and quit out of any applications that are using it.
If you hear it in the headphones as well, it could be a sound card problem, which means it would need replacing. If you don't hear it in the headphones, but hear it in the speakers and don't have a mic, it's either your speakers, or (more likely) your computer just doesn't get along with whatever software you're using to play movies/music.

Hello .. Thank you very much . I was playing a music with my laptop and i tried to connect a ear pin for the speaker and all of a sudden the sound went off so you cant hear any sound . when ever i connect...

Plugging-in a set of headphones to the "audio-out" port *SHOULD* cause the internal speakers to become QUIET.

Unplug the headphones, to make the speakers work.

Bought a new toshiba satellite t110. Sound is

I've just brought on too, I thought the same thing, have to use headphones or hook it up to a speaker otherwise I strain to hear anything. Was also disappointed to find no Media Controller software pre-installed. Overall love this portable computer.

Gateway- built-in laptop Speakers not working

Seems to me the speaker is just plain broken. You'll need a new one, contact your vendor for repairs, or you will have to live with using external speakers/earpieces...

I hope you will get your replacement,

Help with Sound

I cannot say directly for your particular model. I will give you a generic answer that can apply to most any computer.

If you hear an echo, look carefuly thorugh the setup for the sound card. Look for anything to do with special effects.

Look for the options or properties that have to do with the sound card that is in the computer. Many of them have special effects capability.
