Echo through speakers


Unintended reverberation, or "echoing," from your computer speakers is a common problem that can arise from improper setup of your audio properties.


Resetting all of your audio information to default will correct this problem, allowing you another chance to strike a good balance to satisfy your audio tastes.


This can be accomplished by accessing the Sounds menu in your operating system.



Select the "Start" menu from the bottom-left corner of your screen, and click on "Control Panel." Find the "hardware and Sound" button and click to select.


Click on the sound icon and select the third tab labeled "Sounds" in the window that appears. A list of sounds will appear, beginning with "Asterisk." Click on a sound to highlight and select test.

Listen to hear if the echoing problem occurs.

If it does, you need to configure your speakers or check to see if it is a third-party issue.


Select the first tab labeled "Playback" from the same window. Right-click on the "Speakers" icon. Click on "Configure Speakers" from the top of the list.


Choose a setup from the list that appears and select test to test different sound configurations for the speakers.

Listen to decipher if one configuration has less echo than another. If so, choose the speaker configuration without the echo to fix the problem.


However, if none of the configurations remove the echo, you need to attempt to troubleshoot the issue from "Safe Mode."


Turn on your computer if it is off or restart your computer. Continuously press the "F8" key until the "Advance Boot Options" screen appears.


Use your arrow keys to navigate the screen, pressing down until you have highlighted the "Safe Mode" option. Hit "Enter" to select. Wait for the drivers to load.


Log on from the "Administrator" account. Test the sounds again, and if the echo does not occur, the cause is a third-party driver or service.


hope this helps

Poor sound quality


Many laptops have very small tinny sounding speakers built into them. If you wish to get better sound you can hook it up to a set of external speakers through the headphone port (or line out if it has it). You may also be able to get a set of USB powered external laptop speakers for your laptop.

You can check that there isn't dirt covering or stuck in the speaker grill, and that you don't have the volume too loud that it's overpowering the speakers.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!

My voice keeps echoing and playing back at me


Does the laptop have a built-in microphone? Make sure the microphone output is turned off (muted) in the playback volume settings. It could be at just the right setting to be causing a decaying feedback. Also, many sound softwares today have other features for echo, reverb, etc. My Creative one has a vast selection of simulated reverb like Concert Hall, Bathroom, Basement, Cathedral, even one call Haunted Cavern. Look for these in the advanced options section of your sound controls. These normally aren't a part of the standard windows volume control. There should be a shortcut similar to Sound Mixer to access them, if you have it.

The sound is very low about 30% of what i would expect it to be, Can i do anything to increase it, thanks.


Notebooks are notorious for having very poor sound quality. In order to keep notebooks small and light, very small speakers are used, which results in very quiet output, with very poor sound quality.

Before giving up, check all of your sound settings. Go to Sound from the Control Panel and make sure that everything is set where it should be. Also make sure that the master volume is turned up, as well as the volume control in whatever program is providing your audio.

Outside of that, check out some nice headphones or external speakers, whichever works better for your situation.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Poor sound quality


Thank you for clarifying for us what it is you have, it's very helpful. I don't know how long you've had the TV, is there a chance that there is a guarantee covering it if it indeed has any problems? (not for us to know, just thought I'd bring it up.) Some suggestions: I see from the spec's that the TV has a headphone jack. You should try headphones when the problem is exhibited, (even if they're for your IPOD) if the headphones sound clean it's probably the speakers. If the distortion is present in the headphones, it's probably not the speakers, or anything else in the TV. In which case I would suspect a problem with the source, you know, the old garbage in - garbage out. Even digital cable is not immune to such problems. It's only as good as the guy that set it up. Hope this helpful for you.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Acer Aspire 5630 - Low speaker volume, poor quality, OS=Vista


It's likely that the speakers are blown out if it's quiet and making a crackling sound. To fix that, the speakers can be replaced or you can use external speakers.
