Echo through speakers


Unintended reverberation, or "echoing," from your computer speakers is a common problem that can arise from improper setup of your audio properties.


Resetting all of your audio information to default will correct this problem, allowing you another chance to strike a good balance to satisfy your audio tastes.


This can be accomplished by accessing the Sounds menu in your operating system.



Select the "Start" menu from the bottom-left corner of your screen, and click on "Control Panel." Find the "hardware and Sound" button and click to select.


Click on the sound icon and select the third tab labeled "Sounds" in the window that appears. A list of sounds will appear, beginning with "Asterisk." Click on a sound to highlight and select test.

Listen to hear if the echoing problem occurs.

If it does, you need to configure your speakers or check to see if it is a third-party issue.


Select the first tab labeled "Playback" from the same window. Right-click on the "Speakers" icon. Click on "Configure Speakers" from the top of the list.


Choose a setup from the list that appears and select test to test different sound configurations for the speakers.

Listen to decipher if one configuration has less echo than another. If so, choose the speaker configuration without the echo to fix the problem.


However, if none of the configurations remove the echo, you need to attempt to troubleshoot the issue from "Safe Mode."


Turn on your computer if it is off or restart your computer. Continuously press the "F8" key until the "Advance Boot Options" screen appears.


Use your arrow keys to navigate the screen, pressing down until you have highlighted the "Safe Mode" option. Hit "Enter" to select. Wait for the drivers to load.


Log on from the "Administrator" account. Test the sounds again, and if the echo does not occur, the cause is a third-party driver or service.


hope this helps

How do get rid of echo on sound from speakers?


When you say echo, are you meaning sound coming from your mic echoing thru the speakers or a sound like your in a bathroom on all audio.

If you are referring to the mic issue, then open your volume control and make sure that MIC is muted in playback setttings

If you are refering to bathroom sound on everything , it is called a "environmental setting" and in in your sound cards software setup, like their version of the volume control or some other application they have installed for you to configure your card. Just locate the "environmental" setting and disable it / set it to none.

The sound on my Acer aspire 5515 has an echo.


Go into the control panel to sound and audio - click advanced (toward the bottom) + check that your speakers are set to Laptop Stereo.

Post your results here, especially if this doesn't fix your problem...

Echoing laptop speaker


I hope this can solve your problem. Your computer might have a built in microphone that might be on. Open the Audio Properties and mute the microphone. I didn't think I had a microphone on my computer until I was playing around with a program one day. They can be hidden very well as I still haven't found mine.

However, try that and see if it resolves the problem. If not, at least I eliminated one potential problem. Good luck! :-)

All sounds on my computer sound like they're in an echo chamber


I had this problem. I right clicked on the speaker icon at the bottom right hand corner of the screen, selected playback devices, left clicked to highlight the 'speakers' (realtek in my case) then clicked properties in the lower right of the open window, clicked on the enhancements tab, and found that my sound effect properties had been changed to auditorium. I clicked the selection arrow and changed the enhancements to 'none'. Oh happy day! No more echo.

Help with Sound


I cannot say directly for your particular model. I will give you a generic answer that can apply to most any computer.

If you hear an echo, look carefuly thorugh the setup for the sound card. Look for anything to do with special effects.

Look for the options or properties that have to do with the sound card that is in the computer. Many of them have special effects capability.

Sound echo's


If you're using a microphone then i would say that the echo you are getting is because your mic needs to be muted. This can be found in your master volume controls

Sound echo


I found that the best way to avoid this problem is to mute the television speakers or, if you can, turn off the speakers. There seems to be a very brief delay between TV and theater speakers, causing what sounds like an echo. hope this helps.

Sound problem


Sounds silly but, try muting your built in microphone, because i'l bet, the mic is picking up the sound from yours speakers and causing the echo. That's wot i've found on a few occassions. Other than that, check sound and video drivers by click Start>Run, then type in 'dxdiag' (without quotes) this will run a diagnostic on audio and video. Please rate this solution
