lately my speakers are tinny and distorted and make scratchy noises they havent been altered in any way what makes them go like this i have pulled the cables out and put them back i have reinstalled the sound card but still is terrible to listen to what can i do next
Check the speakers with another source, MP3 player or CD. If still the same then you need new speakers. If they are OK with another source then check to see if there are any updated drivers for the sound card.
Hi canarieslover did what you advised and found my speakers are ok on other machines and walkman so what can i do now i put the system disc in and loaded the sound card drivers but it is still the same tinny and scratchy any thing else i can try
Is it a seperate sound card or built onto motherboard? Are they surround sound or 2:1 stereo? Check in control panel for set-up of your speaker system, it may have been altered away from the correct format by updates. If they are 2:1 stereo and setup shows 5:1 0r 7:1 then you will lose a lot of the detail from the speakers.
