Re: sound echo's

If you're using a microphone then i would say that the echo you are getting is because your mic needs to be muted. This can be found in your master volume controls

Hi I have had the screen replaced onmy 17 but now the screen graphics look distorted any ideas on what to do to put it right ???

Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if okay! the LCD replacement is bad, however! if the monitor shows the same symptom, it means the video graphics card is bad normally built on the motherboard.

My speaker system gives out terrible echo distortion cannot find problem through normal channels can you help?

my guess is that you have realtek sound on your pc. open the realtek icon from the tray by the clock if you have one, if not you need to go through the control panel. you'll probably find the equaliser is set on hall or something, play with the settings until you find the one you like.

Audio from laptop speakers is fine, headphones are not.

Do these headphones work OK in another machine??

If not they are faulty / If so then sound port may be faulty.
'Ensure it is enabled in BIOS. press DEL key when booting and look for similar.

When i play an mp3 it sounds like an echo and the lyrics are way in the background...the music is loud enough..and there is no sound when i use the headphones


You probably have some kind of surround effects enabled on the laptop. Go into the audio software, either acer e-audio or realtek. Look around in these and turn off or bypass any 'enhancements' or surround effects.probably best to uninstall acer e-audio if installed. It's unnecessary and you won't lose any audio functions. :)

Hope this helps!

Extended my monitor to a Vizio 37" LCD TV Echoed Sound

You have an HDMI connection on a Thinkpad T20???
Per definition, HDMI is supposed to send video and audio data from the TV to the PC -so, yes, it should work.

I say "should", because I tried to hook up my PC that way and I went back to a VGA connection (and sent the sound to an old stereo), because the resolution was awful.
I rather think that the audio cable is the culprit here - if the connectors are not fitting perfectly, they can create a lot of distortion.

Also check your audio settings on the PC (updated driver, settings not on maximum volume, etc.)

If you want to try HDMI, there is no need to get the ultra expensive "Monster" cable. Look here for an example.

Sony Vaio speakers are echoing, cutting out, causing delay.

Sony's web site has very thorough driver support. Log onto and download & install the latest audio driver for your system.

Help with Sound

I cannot say directly for your particular model. I will give you a generic answer that can apply to most any computer.

If you hear an echo, look carefuly thorugh the setup for the sound card. Look for anything to do with special effects.

Look for the options or properties that have to do with the sound card that is in the computer. Many of them have special effects capability.
