How do I get rid of echo sounds in my speakers ?


Sometimes the echo is produced by the MIC, if you have a Mic mute it, or make it far from the sound source, or disable the MIC boost function on the recording device on the multimedia panel.

Should my acer laptop have a microphone built in, if so how do I activate it.


double click on the speaker on your system tray.
a new screen will appear.
click on options and search for microphone on the list.
click to enable the mic and then you can adjust the volume.

to check if you have a mic, look near the keyboard. there should be a small hole. try and speak from there. if not then you have to buy an external.

Go to Device Manager, select Sound, Audio and Games Ctlr expand (+) press the plus sign, go one by one on all those that show a speaker image...select each one by one and right click, and if it has the "uninstall" option...just uninstall.
Dont do any thing further....shut down pc/laptop

2 - Scroll/go to On Board Peripherals...press enter...next screen....
3 Look for
A- "On Board audio"
B- "AC97 audio" or any thing that says "Audio"
C- "Look for anything that says "MIDI" with some numbers 301,205 etc in [ ]
just Disable all the above by using PgUP PGDN key
Press F10 and chose Yes to save the setting in BIOS
or use Save and Exit in BIOS

Let WinXP load...go to Device Manager...go to Sound Audio and Games Controller...check all those that you uninstalled earlier if they RE-Appear...
