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.

Re: mx6124 problems with distorted sound.

The problem is your processor here.

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

Unable to play videos,games refuses to open,although you may hear the sound but the video does not open.also the window will be dragging.

What kind of operating system are you using?

Press Ctrl+alt+del and check your ram and cpu-usage under the *performance tab

If you're maxing out your memory, you might have a memory leak. Does the problem usually gradually increase when you've left your computer running?

And about the videos; Try using VLC - And just to clarify what the problem is when it comes to the video playback. It's a missing codec, but VLC does not require codecs to play videos, music etc.

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.

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.

Audio Distortion after System Crash

sorry for the late reply. im using windows. im quite sure that there's no virus involved with the distortion of my sound. this is what happened.

1. im surfing the net while listening to music(full volume)
2.)then suddenly the sound gets a bit distorted(jumps,skips)
3.)then everything hangs up which forced me to reboot
4.)the windows loading screen became too long(like 5mins) before it takes me to the main desktop(start up programs loads like 48 years also).
5.)when i play music ,the sound is very much(like alien,"rrrrrrr")

i tried reinstalling the drivers but nothing was fixed. i've even tried Regcure.

i just formatted my notebook and voila its back to normal.
i dunno but i think playing loud music using laptop, or in my case notebook speakers would cause this problem. im using external speakers now and i've got no problems. i just hope that there would be a fix to this problem so that i wont have to reformat if the problem occurs again

Gaming issues

I would make sure you have the latest bios, and video drivers to start. Make sure you have all latest updates for windows. Make sure your hard drive is defragmented. Also make sure your computer is clean and that it is ventilating/cooling properly. If that fails I would just format and reinstall windows.
Hope that helps,
