Sound is distorted and echo's


check the speaker plug/outlets is usually if its a laptop on the side


you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity


clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is or a can of compressed air

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer


hope this helps

The speakers sound like an echo and you can't understand what is being said with everything being distorted. The monitor has not been in use for a few months and everything else is working properly, but I...


Have you checked the sound with some other speakers or a headphones.

If the sound is still like echo try adjusting audio settings not thru My Computer - audio, but try finding a software that comes with *********** board/sound card. I suppose the sound is some AC97/Realtek compatible card, so you should looking in your program files under Realtek into WDM and run the Audio Control Panel or Sound Manager (whatever you find). Adjust the sound effects to NONE and use some normal enviroment (other then echo/cave/big hall).

Distorted, cracked sound coming through to the speakers


is it possible your new reciever has a built in phono pre-amp?

If so, you need to switch off the pre-amp inside the turntable (lift up the rubber matt, and rotate the plate untill you see the switch at the back)

Try again now?

Video conversation ECHO/Feedback


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using headphones during videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud
