Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

My 5-year-old son ran some internet game program that has caused the sound card to constantly insert strong echo into all sound output such that any speech is distorted beyond recognition. How can I reset the sound card to default values on my emachines desktop (model=T3504)? Thanks for any help you can provide!

Why is my laptop crashing?


I would try getting the latest video card drivers first, if it is a Nvida card & it has recently updated itself, I would roll back the drivers, there has been a problem with the last update & my computer didn't like the upgrade & blue screened a lot, but was fine after I rolled them back in safe mode, if the problem if not repairable via software then go to a Laptop specialist, for what its worth I think its a software issue as you say its only when playing games, but im not an expert just well informed.

TeamSpeak 3 echos


most occasion its that in your configuration for sound output you have your microphone turned on which causes your outbound to have an audio loop of both inbound and outbound sound causing an echo going into the setting and looking specifically at your inbound audio options and muting your microphone will fix this

How to reset sound card to stop constant, strong echo?


Try setting your sound card back to the defaults by going into your control panel (Start--> Control Panel) double click Sounds and Audio Devices (if in classic view), while on the volume tab press the ADVANCED button, then go to the performance tab and press the RESTORE DEFAULTS button. If that does not do it you can try moving the Hardware acceleration slider to the left one notch at a time, and if none of those help I would use the device manager to remove the sound card (if you have the drivers to reinstall when you reboot.

I bought to my son PC CD ROM Wildlife Park 2. I tried to install program according to the recomendation. If I tried to start the program I am receiving the information that vertex and pixel shader version...


Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. It must be supported by the graphics card. Sounds like your graphics card will not work with the game you purchased. To answer your question directly, you will need to install a graphics card that supports Pixel Shaders to be able to run games which need it.
The following cards support Shader Model 1.x: - ATI Radeon 85xx Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9000 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9100 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 92xx Series (1.4) - NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti (1.1) - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti (1.3)

My Acer Aspire 5320 is overheating to a point that it crashes and the fan has bean constantly running when i play games on it or any video car incentive programs


you need to stop playing these kind of games on the lapop, this is because latops are not built for gamers, and the graphics card cannot support the game, this causes the laptop processor to heat up, thats why the fan is on constantly and eventually crashes, check the games minimum system requirements before installing and playing games, you can purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs into the USB slot boosting the graphics but these devices are still very expensive


kind regards

My computer have no sound. It only reproduces Cd, using "Cp player". but if I want uses other programs like Windows Media Player", or "Winamp", there is no sound. And i have no...


usually windows 98 computers have this problem. if you go onto microsofts site and look for windows 98 media player updates then it should sort this problem. otherwise you coud do one of the following:

- purchase windows xp from pc world or somewhere simular or otherwise just download from the internet using a download program called a bit torrent tracker ( a program which lets you download software and things for free....which is on the slide if you know what i mean)

- check that the volume on media player is set to play out

any problems still let me know by email milliprowd21@yahoo.co.uk
