My sound is distorted and scratchy.

First install a headphone set or a set of speakers to your headphone jack If you still have the same problem it's your soundcard. This may be part of the system board so you have a serious problem. If the problem is resolved then it's your speakers. You can order a set on ebay or from any other laptop parts site. To install them you might want to find instructions on how to do it on ebay. Good luck!

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.

Bad quality sound reproduction.

I would start by trying to replace the sound card driver - link.

If that doesn't work, it may be an issue with the speakers themselves.

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.

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'

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.

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.
