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

How to increase speaker volume


Use VLC media player to play videos. It supports almost all format and plays videos smoothly. It can increase your sound to upto 400% . but be careful. Use full volume only when the sound is less or the speaker may get damaged.

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].

HP Compaq nx6115 PC Notebook : Speakers suddenly stopped working


Just go to your computer manufacturer's website and see if there are any audio driver updates, because that is what it sounds like to me. If there aren't any driver updates for your audio, then reinstall the audio drivers that it shows. If your computer is just a couple months old, then it is or should still be under warranty. if the driver update/ reinstall doesn not fix the issue, then if you purchased the laptop from a store, take it back, along with your receipt, and ask for an exchange or for them to repair it. if you bought it online, contact the site or your manufacturer if you ordered it from them, and request their process of sending it back for a replacement or repair. I hope. this helps you out

Using dvd drive makes makes sounds


There is nothing wrong with your laptop. If you are copying a cd and trying to play music at the same time, you are pushing the processor power of your laptop or low on memory. When copying a cd it should rip it without sound to your hardrive, so i assume that your are playing music from your hardrive as well as ripping and this model of laptop i think comes standard with a 1.3ghz processor with 512mb of memory, which can easily be drained when ripping or burning.
