Scratchy and distorted sound in media player

Cannot listen to music or videos as sound is scratchy and distorted. I think I have the same problem..

Lately (past 6 months or so) listening to mp3's on the computer has notbeen that fun. All of my music has pops, clicks, or sounds scratchy. Idon't think its the speakers because it happens when the (Bose)headphones are plugged into the computer headphone jack and speakersare turned off, too. My drivers are up to date, should I uninstall thenre-install? Device manager says the audio card is working just fine.

It is an on-board soundcard: Realtek High Definition Audio. I haveVista Home Premium 32 bit, on an E-Machines computer. Driver version ofsoundcard is 6.0.1.5404.

I use WMP11, Winamp 5.541, and iTunes 8.1.0.52 and the problem existswhile listening to mp3s on all of these programs. Same issue with .wav,.wma, and .ogg as well, not just mp3, but the majority of my tunes aremp3.


I think it's a problem with drivers. I've seen it on two Acer notebooks with realtek high definiton audio.

    the computer has bad sound both with headphones and with internal speaker. Some times it sounds like a broken CD, doing some sort of looping sound. Sometimes it makes noise. I've seen the same problem in another computer with realtek HD sound chip. One with XP, the other with Vista.


    Best regards, Oscar

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.

Scratchy and distorted sound in media player


There are a few possible reasons for this.

1. Your drivers are bad, look for new updated drivers from vendor and from windows update.
2. Your system is under heavy load and has trouble playing sounds, you can try to close not needed programs from the taskamanager.

Also, download process explorer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx'

after extracting the program from the zipfile pay close atention to what is useing the CPU take note if INTERRUPTS / HARDWARE INTERRUPTS or DPC's / Deferrend Procure Calls are happening alot. This can be a sign of hardware problem or complex windows problem. In this case I would recommend reinstalling windows. If the problems continue it is most likely a hardware issue.

If INTERRUPTS and DPCs are normal between 0 and 50, for short perioids, can be higher, but if constant high values then this is a problem.

If those two are not a problem go thrue all applications and find out witch is eating all the cpu, when found try shuting the program down by pressing delete after selected on process manager.

If these dont solve the problem I'l type more later.
