Hopefully it's a software problem and not hardware. I'd start by downloading and installing the latest drivers from Dell. Here's a link to the support site:

If that doesn't work then it's probably a hardware problem. Let me know if the first suggestion works, otherwise I'll post other tips.

S150 speakers sound scratchy


If you have just purchased these speakers, it is likely a loose piece inside, or the plastic buttons on front vibrating loudly when sound is played.

Quick fix:
Place a piece of tape over the buttons on the front.

Longer fix:
1. Remove both phillips head screws from the back.
2. Remove speaker guard. It is held on with 3 pressure pins. With a small flat head screwdriver, You can get underneath the guard and apply force. The trick, is to focus your net force perpendicular to the face of the speaker. You don't have to be too gentle, but be wary of flexing the plastic guard too much or it may break.
3. Remove both phillips head screws from the front.
4. Open speaker unit and remove two small screws from circuit board.
5. Cut two pieces of soft tissue paper big enough to fill the button housing underneath the circuit board. (The thinking here, is that the tissue will dampen any rattling from the buttons. Don't worry! The buttons will still work).
6. Re-assemble the speaker, taking care to tighten all screws.

It just recently began to malfunction and the music and/or movies always sound staticky. I bought it in July of this year for college and have never had problems like this before.


If you have a external speaker try to connect the external speaker and check how the sound works on the external one.. If it works well then the internal speakers have gone bad.. Contact the computer manufacturer to replace them.. If the sound plays scratchy in the external on then unistall the drivers from the device manager and reinstall a fresh copy from the support website of the computer manufacturer.. If you dont have a external speaker better reinstall drivers if the issue is not fixed contact the computer manufacturer....

Distorted, scratchy sound with Toshiba Satellite


OK, I would restore or recover the computer to manufacturer's original specifications and automatic update to the latest sp3.

Then, I would reinstall your virus protection and see if it's better.

Bad quality sound reproduction.


I would start by trying to replace the sound card driver - link.

If that doesn't work, it may be an issue with the speakers themselves.

Probably something was touching the speaker cone and you snapped the speaker back so it no longer touches.

Sound scratchy


Seems to me that the first thing you want to do is find out if your problem comes from the camera speakers/output, or if it records them scratchy. Take one of the "scratchy" cassettes, and play them on another device to see if it transfers bad audio. If it does, then you're worst off offcourse, more of a repair. If it doesn't you can decide you don't need a repair, as long as it does the job. Good luck
