Sounds like a heating problem that may be caused by faulty wiring or the whoel system itself is overheating.

Is this a computer? need more info.

If so, take it apart and clean out dust and debre form processor cooling fan and heatsink and anywhere else its built up, also make sure there isnt any bad wiring or funky plastic smells comming form it.

Sound is distorted and crackles


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


The speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or 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 can of compressed air or a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit.


If you use a vacuum cleaner dont use one with a metal pipe if it touches anything on your motherboard it might short something out.

dust causes static to build up in a computer


hope this helps

I have no sound think I have my speakers plugged in wrongly


Hi
a few suggestons.
1. turn on the speakers, be sure that they have power and that the light is on, turn up the sound volume and touch the tip of the plug with your finger (there is no power in it, won't hurt you) you should hear a buzz or souncd, indicating that the speakers are working.
2. this plug goes into the speaker jack on the back of the computer, usually a green colored jack (hole).
3. you can see if Windows recognizes this by going to control panel/system/hardware/device manager, and look under the listing for "sound". there should be no icons with a yellow ! (which would indicate that the sound drivers are not installed).

Hope this helps.

Good luck

Inspiron 530 sound distortion


What kind of integrated sound card do you have?? I am going to assume its realtek. Go to control panel, then open up RealTek HD Sound effect manager and make sure the drop down menu for Environment is on "none". The try your speakers.

No souned


check that you haven't muted the sound by accident. Look for a speaker icon in the task tray at the bottom of the screen on the right hand side. If it has a red circle with a line going through it, then it is muted. Click on it then click on the little blue speaker to turn off the mute.

If you have not got a speaker icon in the tray then go to control panel, sound and click double click on speakers then click on the blue speaker icon to turn the mute off. (For Vista)

Also make sure that the speaker wires are plugged in correctly on the back of the computer.

Codecs


Look in add remove programs, and see what codec packages are in there. You can download the Klite codec pack or use this link, http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=4871&s=95, install them after you remove the codec package that are in there. You should be good to go. Another thing that causes distorsion sometimes is using the DFX program that gives you more sound from your speakers, but sometimes causes distorsion when used with players that have the equalizer turned on. If you are using any "booster type" programs, try shutting them down first. good luck

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.
