SOUND PLAYS WITH DISTORTION ON COMPAQ LAPTOP

All sounds play with some garbled-type distortion. It is not the speakers as same issue if using ear pieces. Tried updating sound drivers, and restoring computer to an earlier time all to no avail. I have windows media player 11 installed. Volume level settings are all set mid-way or below, so it is not a volume issue either. Does same thing when playing any computer-generated sounds or music from my itunes library. Was working fine up until recently. No viruses in system either. Any suggestions to fix this? Thanks

Sound driver is installed well. When a sound file (mp3) is played there is no playback sound from in built speakers. Presario c755tu.


What program is playing the sound file? If you want to be completely sure that its not a codec issue then play it with VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ - VLC can play absolutely anything usually.
If it still doesnt play then it can only be one of two things:
1. - corrupt driver / software issue - confirm this by seeing if anything else plays through the speakers, if you get noise from other things then its not this.
2. - Broken speaker - if you cant get anything at all to make noise, and its not 1, then it could be a faulty speaker issue. Technician needs to look at it.

Finally if its only one file obviously it could be a corrupt or broken file, but I'm sure you've tested on more than one file.

Itunes music sounds distorted somtimes and not others


The fault is from your laptop speaker. I think it has a hole inside and maybe that's why it distorts. Or maybe the sound/volume is too loud and the speaker does not have the capacity.

I would advice you to get an external speaker for your laptop.

Take care.

My subwoofer sound is distorted


whatever player are you using must be having Equalizer in it...try adjusting that [keep that down to a minimum]. Check the program for your audio device...some programs have sound options like jazz,rock,pop these are predefined equalizer changing these could also help. Try using a different media player like VLC [it's free to download on the web] Try uninstalling the audio driver and then reinstalling the driver. It is quite possible that your speaker doesn't match with the Laptop's amplifier or the speaker is gone kaput [a coil problem or something needs repair...but do not repair rather buy a good speaker coz repairing loses the quality].

Garbled sound


Your Codec is damaged. Reload your drivers for your sound card. First uninstall the old ones. Moving your non working speakers and they play fine says they are good. I have a problem that you have new speakers and the problem went away. Drivers do not care what speakers are on the other end. It only produces output. Now that your second pair is working correctly, put back the Harmons and see if the problem comes back
