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

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!

If you have the Realtek audio, which my emachines desktop has. You can go to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Realtek HD Audio Manager. That will bring up a window where you can select setero/quadraphonic/ect. But you want the tab that says "sound effects". Make sure your effects are set to "none" on the "environment" tab and not "bathroom" or "Auditorium" or anything that would invoke echo into the sound. If it is set to "non" then check the "Equalizer" drop down and see if something is selected there. "None" would work. Hope this helps.

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.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRC05L5DW1, is freezing the inside as well as running constantly. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, if you are still having the same issues, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Yep , Sounds like the rings have probable seized to the piston. It will probably be on the exhaust side so you may be able to take off the muffler and look inside the cylinder there to see if there are any score marks. Good luck.

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
