Click on the speaker on the tool bar, it should brong up the audio panel, now you need a source like media player, once in there you can play one of the free radio stations that come with Windows media player and adjust the sound with the equaliser that comes with the program, you can't expect much if you don't have a sound card, but you should get an improvement over what you are getting noe. Also if you like, download win- amp, the free version comes in 3 flavors get the full version, it comes with shoutcast and aol radio for free, and several controls to improve your sounds, and you may need an upgrade codec pak, this will have plug-ins for better quality sound, when looking for the free version look to the small print as they like to push the pay version of course. here is the link for the codecs, http://www.free-codecs.com/K_Lite_Codec_Pack_download.htm
This should get going, good luck, just cut and paste the address into a browser to get the goodies, Peace, Gym

Echo through speakers


Unintended reverberation, or "echoing," from your computer speakers is a common problem that can arise from improper setup of your audio properties.


Resetting all of your audio information to default will correct this problem, allowing you another chance to strike a good balance to satisfy your audio tastes.


This can be accomplished by accessing the Sounds menu in your operating system.



Select the "Start" menu from the bottom-left corner of your screen, and click on "Control Panel." Find the "hardware and Sound" button and click to select.


Click on the sound icon and select the third tab labeled "Sounds" in the window that appears. A list of sounds will appear, beginning with "Asterisk." Click on a sound to highlight and select test.

Listen to hear if the echoing problem occurs.

If it does, you need to configure your speakers or check to see if it is a third-party issue.


Select the first tab labeled "Playback" from the same window. Right-click on the "Speakers" icon. Click on "Configure Speakers" from the top of the list.


Choose a setup from the list that appears and select test to test different sound configurations for the speakers.

Listen to decipher if one configuration has less echo than another. If so, choose the speaker configuration without the echo to fix the problem.


However, if none of the configurations remove the echo, you need to attempt to troubleshoot the issue from "Safe Mode."


Turn on your computer if it is off or restart your computer. Continuously press the "F8" key until the "Advance Boot Options" screen appears.


Use your arrow keys to navigate the screen, pressing down until you have highlighted the "Safe Mode" option. Hit "Enter" to select. Wait for the drivers to load.


Log on from the "Administrator" account. Test the sounds again, and if the echo does not occur, the cause is a third-party driver or service.


hope this helps

The speakers sound like an echo and you can't understand what is being said with everything being distorted. The monitor has not been in use for a few months and everything else is working properly, but I...


Have you checked the sound with some other speakers or a headphones.

If the sound is still like echo try adjusting audio settings not thru My Computer - audio, but try finding a software that comes with *********** board/sound card. I suppose the sound is some AC97/Realtek compatible card, so you should looking in your program files under Realtek into WDM and run the Audio Control Panel or Sound Manager (whatever you find). Adjust the sound effects to NONE and use some normal enviroment (other then echo/cave/big hall).

How do get rid of echo on sound from speakers?


When you say echo, are you meaning sound coming from your mic echoing thru the speakers or a sound like your in a bathroom on all audio.

If you are referring to the mic issue, then open your volume control and make sure that MIC is muted in playback setttings

If you are refering to bathroom sound on everything , it is called a "environmental setting" and in in your sound cards software setup, like their version of the volume control or some other application they have installed for you to configure your card. Just locate the "environmental" setting and disable it / set it to none.

System echos when dvd is in. When I mute the Bose sytem I can hear the TV sound without the echo.


The echo you hear is the audio delay between your TV speakers and Bose speakers. Muting (or lowering the volume) on the TV will eliminate the echo. Some TVs have a setting to turn of TV speakers entirely, allowing you to listen to your TVs audio strictly through your Bose system.

All sounds on my computer sound like they're in an echo chamber


I had this problem. I right clicked on the speaker icon at the bottom right hand corner of the screen, selected playback devices, left clicked to highlight the 'speakers' (realtek in my case) then clicked properties in the lower right of the open window, clicked on the enhancements tab, and found that my sound effect properties had been changed to auditorium. I clicked the selection arrow and changed the enhancements to 'none'. Oh happy day! No more echo.

Jensen JMP 50 sounds like I am in a tunnel or well.


Have you powered up the speakers have you checked the sound drivers?? but remember the sound of the Jensen JMP-50s is a bit hollow and lacking in bass, and the speakers do lack bass and treble controls, which can often be found in other speakers in the same price range.

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.
