Audio echos

  Tony Cannon 12:03 27 Aug 2005

My audio has started echoing, whether I play an MP3 or live radio. I don't use audio much so I'm not sure when it started or, therefore, what caused it to start but it makes music and even the Test commentary unpleasant to listen to. I have an MSI motherboard with built in audio.
Any ideas? I can't find an echo switch anywhere.

Tony Cannon,

it sounds like your music settings are set to, "echo" or "chamber", or something similar.

Not knowing which software you use though, i can't advise where the setting will be.

If you are using media player 10, click on view-enhancements-graphic equalizer, and check whether it is a customised setting.

Have a look at Volume Control in Accessories, Entertainment.

Thanks gentlemen.
The WMP10 graphic equalizer is set to default and the Volume Control has only voluem and balance settings, nothing to do with echo.

If you are using a Creative soundcard, try looking in the 'surround mixer' and 'Audio Hq',as there are plenty of effects you can alter.

Thanks, but there is no Creative sound card.
However, I seem to have fixed it!! I have turned off "Enable digital CD audio for this CR-ROM device" and the echo has gone! Pretty extraordinary, really, when I wasn't playing a CD! The echo came playing music files from the hard disk or streaming radio content.

Still, resolved, so thanks one and all!.

do you have a microphone near the speakers?
