intermittent sound system

The sound system on my laptop has suddenly become distorted intermittently. Please advise - I am a bit of a beginner. Hope I don't need a new computer......

It could be a driver failure, it could be a hardware problem with a loose connection to your speakers.

Have you tried updating your drivers?

What is the make and model of your laptop?

Run 'System Restore' back from before this started happening.

it may even be caused by a windows update if you had any at the time it started happening.

Thank you ArrGee. My laptop is compaq presario M2000, about 4 years old. I have never updated my drivers. I don't know how to go about it.
