Will it harm my laptop to listen to music on it every night all night?


No, it will not harm your laptop, it might harm your ears if you listen to it too loud through headphones. The only possible damage could occur if you listen through the laptops speakers, too loud and constant would adversly wear out the speakers.

I have a emachine w3653 and the sound is horrible. Music and all. Sounds like I'm sitting in a barrel or getting a bad echo.


Dear Jenneric2009,
It would be too early to blame computer sound card for the bad sound quality .. here are few questions for you..
  1. How are you listening to the sound.. I mean through desktop speakers or headphone or you have 5.1 speakers installed etc...
  2. Did it ever work fine?
  3. Do you have any DSP software installed on your computer to modify or enhance sound?
  4. Does it sound the same when you listen it through various software.. For example does it sound the same when you play it in Winamp or in Windows media player ... This will tell us if it has to do with any settings on the player.
  5. Did you relocate your computer/speakers?
Most probably it must be due to software settings where you can set the sound effect like as if you are in a bathroom or in a barrel or in an auditorium etc ...
Please let me know if that helps and let me know about the additional information that I requested above.

Best Regards,
Srinivas.

I have sound distortion when i listen to music or videos on my computer.


Does it happen in all programs? Try Windows Media Player and an alternate (like WinAmp). If it happens in one, you need to check the equalizer in that program. If it happens in both, check the advanced sound settings on your soundcard

All the Songs on Media Player & Music I Download into the Media Player Get Distorted you Can Hear the Backround music & Some of the Chorus Fine but the Lyrics of the song are distorted if you can hear it...


It sounds like you have a problem with what is called "phase cancellation," which is something complicated that happens with audio when the left and right channels get out of sync and cancel out all of the common sound between the two channels. This can happen with bad speakers, a faulty output jack, or just failing to plug in the speakers all the way - it's also used (trivia!) constructively in the studio to create interesting effects on sounds.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase_cancellation

I don't think that you are actually experiencing a problem with WMP, but with your speakers or possibly your sound card. Here's what to do:

First, while music is playing, check and make sure that the speakers are well connected. Double check where they plug into your computer and ensure that the jack is inserted all the way. If they appear fine, flex the speaker cable a bit near the adapter...if you hear the sound change in any way (not including clicks or pops, really), the problem is most likely a short in your cable. Replacing the cable or speakers if necessary will solve this. If this doesn't help either, turn the speakers off and unplug them.

If you have an iPod or Discman lying around, plug it into the speakers and turn it back on. With music playing does it sound better? If yes, probably your sound card is damaged. These can be replaced very inexpensively. If it still sounds just as bad, your speakers are probably broken. You can try a new cable if it is A) removable and B) you have a replacement or don't mind buying one. Otherwise the speakers will have to be replaced.
