Has the laptop been working until this issue? Which Windows OS are you running? If the laptop has been working and suddenly comes to this state, you may have got some kind of virus.
If this is a new OS installed laptop, then you may need to reinstall the OS.
It is normal for a newly laptop to only has a recycle bin on the desktop.

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.

I'm having problems with the audio on my Acer Aspire One, the sound is distorted or scratchy does not matter the audio application I use, I already went over the troubleshoot steps and is the same, in...

Sounds like you may have a virus, spyware, malware, etc. That could screw with the sound if it screwed up the sound drivers.

Regardless, you can go here to get the drivers for the audio:

Try reinstalling the drivers, if that doesn't work then use the system restore utility in the system tools folder to restore your computer back to the last date that is was working properly. If your windows registry was messed up then this system restore will fix that and the sound problem.

Also run a virus scan on your computer to make sure you don't have any viruses or spyware.

With the system taking longer then normal to start then that could mean the operating system is corrupt. In that case back-up all your important files to a flash drive and wipe out the hard drive and restore the laptop back to factory defaults, you should have gotten the software if you bought the laptop from a store new.

Any questions feel free to ask me.

Sound problem: scratchy and distorted

That sound card isn't really being claimed by anyone anymore, both Intel and Realtek have washed their hands of it. You can do a few things. If it's a dell laptop, theres a Motherboard Update that fixes these problems (which must be installed first), there are also alternative drivers that come from the Linux world that you could try (no offense but your sound card isn't that wonderful to begin with, so I would think just sound without distortion would be good sound. It also just might be time to update your drivers and have them with me strangely enough. Let me know what you want to do.

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.
