Question about Gateway MX6124 Notebook

Mx6124 problems with distorted sound.

Hello, when my itunes trys to play the music is distorted and when I check out my cpu usage it seems to use almost 100% when trying to play one song.  I thought maybe it was a ram issue and purchased 2 G's and installed it.  The computer recognizes the new amount of RAM but still uses almost all the cpu to run the music.

The problem is your processor here.

If u use dual core processor for this, it will not use 100% of ur CPU usage.

I have the exact same problem with my acer aspire one. Just recently is started distorting with a mechanical sound...skipping on the videos and making it impossible to actually listen to anything or watch any videos. I thought it might just be an isolated problem until i noticed it happening during startup, etc. I have not found a solution yet but am updating the audio driver. Let me know if you resolved this issue! Thanks!

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.

Why is the karaoke music from my external hard


Playing through the USB port can cause all sorts of "problems" also ensure NO other software is competing for the CPU time. It is always best to play work on use, anything or file, from the actual hard drive. simply copy the files to the HD, and use them from there Also more RAM is always beneficial Also make sure you have the most up-to-date Codecs installed too.

Ipod fine oneday then suddenly while playing music the volume drops real low and distorted and choppy but everything else works fine it still connects to the cpu and itunes still transfers music in and out...


I've seen this happen to a lot of people I know. If it's under warranty still, then send it in. They will most likely end up sending you a new one anyway.
If the warranty has expired, then you'll most likely end up having to buy a new one. Unless you know someone who is good at fixing small electronics and doesn't charge much.

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.

Can't seem to record onto usb device. It saysitneeds more cpu?


I have the 24fx version of this and have noted the same problem. The solution seems to be turning off the feedback ferret as this uses around 30% of the CPU because it is running all the time! When the desk is booted up check the CPU usage before you turn on any of the digital fx. should show around 35% usage. Turn off the old ferret and hey presto, down to around 12% This should give you enough CPU to record direct to memory stick. Not the best design I know, but a really good sound engineer shouldnt need the feedback ferret anyway ;-)
