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!
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.
