Acer aspire 5720z audio video problem

When playing audio or video (includes dvds) every couple of minutes the audio will distort and after about 20 seconds return to normal in the case of video it slows down to few frames per second and then in approx same as the audio will resume normal speed. this problem also seems to affect the XP system sounds as well. I switched from VISTA to XP and used the drivers on the US web site.

Hi I had this problems too but I think it's caused by the configuration of the Realtek codec (be sure there isn't any option of dolby activated) I made it and It appear to work fine

Sorry for my English

I'd recommend you go back to the manufacturing page, and get the latest xp drivers. Seems you're working on a corrupted A/V drive. Check your system settings too, for configuation and acceleration. Got Backup?

I have an Acer Aspire 5720Z. The microphone will

The fact that your internal mic works and then goes out, is more likelly a drivers problem.
I would run your device manager with all external devices disconnected and look for flags.
If you have a device problem, it will show up here.
Remove and flags and allow your operating system to reload drivers after a reboot.
If this has not fixed your problem, try to boot into safe mode and check your internal sound devices their. Sounds like a driver conflect.
Hope this has helped,

Distorted sound

You may want to download the AC97 HD drivers directly from Realtek. The standard AC97 codecs are also available from the same site.

There is the off chance that there may be a hardware failure but I would try reinstalling those codecs first...

Post your results here.
