Hi I have HP desktop with Labtec speakers.Recently I am getting a bad echoing sound from the speakers.I have tried another set of speakers but I am getting the same problem.Any ideas would be welcome.Many thanks.

Your mic might be too close to speakers.

Does you monitor have speakers as well by chance?

look carefully at the sound setting. Somewhere there will probably be a setting for "effects" and you need to turn them off; you've probably accidentally set "echo"

Hi folks thanks for your replies .I am not using the mic.but playing music from library in "My music"and I have tried all the sound settings that I can find.Could it be a faulty sound card as I say this only happened recently.There are speakers on my PC but they are disconnected.

Sorry I meant speakers on my monitor.

You don't need to be using the mic for the echo to appear, if you have a mic attached it could still be causing the echo - you could eliminate this possibility by disconnecting the mic. As I say, it is only a possibility!

Many thanks Technotiger but I do not have a mic connected.I hope I am not being a bit of a pain.

You are not being a pain - try a System Restore back to before this started.

Technotiger thanks again I have done a system restore and it made no difference.Sorry for being so long in getting back to you.

it may be software that loaded with a sound card set to echo or bathroom etc. check control panel sound
