It's not your cd-rom but more likely your speakers. Borrow or swap your current speakers that you know work & sound good.
If they sound good on your system. You need new speakers. If the sound is still disorted. Than your sound card can be
defective or the sound out-put jack is not getting a good connection. Without the Pc model number & Mfg's make I can not go any fauther with suggestions.

pen the Control panel 2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. 3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document. 4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel. 5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
Check Windows services. Right Click My Computer and Manage. Choose Services and Application > Services. Choose "Windows Audio" and set to Automatic and Start. Now next you can do is If you open control panel & click device manager the window that opens will show a list of all installed hardware. Look for anything with an exclamation mark beside it, or to do with sound. If you see anything, right click it, check it isn't Disabled then select "Properties." The next window should have some tabs along the top, the one you are looking for is "Driver," you should now see an "Update driver" button. Check ur sound card information by doing this Click on start menu Click on Run Type dxdiag, enter Click on the sound tab There is button of test direct sound click on this check if there is sound Check ur registry. Check if the sound registry key is enabled or disabled. There could be an error in registry, run registry cleaner reg in out to scan for errors.

Audio/Music skip sounds every few seconds at random constantly


Hello my friend,what program are you using and what type of music?
First uninstall all drivers and install the latest one.Second check your CPU activity when you are playing music(from task manager ctrl+alt+del),if its too high its a problem.If you are using different music from .mp3 like .ogg or something "not common" you must install the latest codecs.I'm waiting for your reply.

  • You do not hear sound from the computer's speakers or headphones.
  • A sound seems to be played, but you do not hear anything.
  • A sound is played, but it stops suddenly.
  • The sound skips or misses in some areas.
  • The sound is distorted or scratchy.
  • The computer stops responding when a sound is played.
  • The computer restarts when a sound is played.
  • You receive an error message when you try to play sound. Error messages could include the following:

Have an emachines e550 does not play sound


You need to go to "control panel, than to "system properties", than to "device manager", ( than to "hardware" if you are using windows XP)

Click on "sound". If you do not see any "red X's" than your sound drivers are working fine.

After that, check your sound cord and power cord. Verify your sound is not muted or turned down.

Emachines 180 desktop sound problems


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those

Installation windows xp emachine t5082


You must find "eMachine" XP USB drivers for your computer.
If all USB support is "enabled" in BIOS, the conflict is with drivers.
XP is loaded with many generic drivers, however eMachines is proprietary and requires eMachine drivers for most on-board hardware.

Contact eMachines support to locate the drivers (if available).

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!

Hello,

Besure that the cd inserted is readable by your CD rom.

You can open your windows media player.
click file menu,
then click open. browse your CD drive and select all the musics files and then click ok.

If this not resolve then verify if your computer has a speaker, not mute the volume control. or the device controller is installed properly. (the audio driver)

Sounds disorted and skipping


Check that you are using the correct audio drivers for your PC. Eventually you can buy a PCI sound card, which is quite inexpensive, and install it on the motherboard. It can replace the sound card integrated with the motherboard. once the new card is installed the old card must be set on ' do not use this device (disable)' from device manager.
