Sony vaio sound problems vgn-nr498e

There's something wrong with the sound. when i do the sound tests, everything sounds perfect, and most of the computer's own natural noises (you know, like when you click things, etc) sounds pretty normal. but when i watch videos on youtube (on both mozilla and IE!) and when i listen to music on itunes or windows media player, things sound way messed up. like it sounds like it has all these wierd echos and crunching sounds in the background and sometimes it just overlaps and plays the sound twice... it's weird, but the point is that it just sounds way wrong. i don't know what to do, and i even tried registering my laptop on the sony website but it didn't even accept my serial number.. so im at a loss. any ideas?

    Nope, my laptop has never done anything like this before. The sound was always just normal.



    As far as programs go, yes, I have installed programs recently. I had tried to download an alarm clock for my laptop, and strangely, none of them worked. The program would download properly and operate, but none of the alarms I downloaded would make their alarm noises. So I uninstalled everything I downloaded. But pretty much that was the beginning of the sound not working.

    Well, I was going to do a system restore but those alarm programs didn't create a restore point or anything. I guess I can just make my own restore point?? Or just pick a restore point that's before that date.. I'll try restoring and see if it fixes the problem.

    Have you tried to do a system restore back to the last date before you started installing those alarm programs?

    Has your laptop always done this or just recently?
    Have you installed any programs onto the laptop recently as well?

After the system restore, if for some reason that doesn't work then go into MSCONFIG and disable some programs from starting up that you don't need and reboot the computer.

My laptop left mouse button has stopped working


Common hardware problem. The correct solution is a replacement tracker pad and mouse, however you may be able to get the problem fixed by cleaning under the pad. Either way it requires taking the laptop apart.

Sony Vaio VGN-NR498E recovery disk


Hello

Well, the recovery disks won't allow you to go to your present system. The recovery disks are designed to put everything back the way it was when you bought the computer, minus all your applications and data. If it's your data that you need then a reputable repair service like mine can slave your hard drive to another system and recover all your data (not applications), provided the hard drive has not electronically or mechanically malfunctioned. Again, a reputable repair person can tell you the status of the hard drive.

Thanks
