Distorted Speakers!!
« on: Saturday June 14, 2008, 08:37:22 AM »
This is not the usual, 'oh the cables are crap', 'you have got the volume to high' blah blah blah. I have a lovely set of BOSE Companion 5 sat next to my PC. A few days ago they started to distort, no gradually or intermitent, just full on robotic sounds like everythings coming out of a tin... Ive played music through the speakers on me phone and everything is fine. But as soon as anything audio comes out of them from my PC its rubbish. Ive updated drivers, uninstalled and re-installed, disconnected reconnected, and threw across the room... Just kidding... Help? Please?

Dom,

A mate of mine had a similar problem, and she had inadvertently enabled some sort of voice cancelling feature. It was really distorting everything, and didn't do all that godd a job at cancelling the vocals  ???

Cheers dude, ive ahd a look around all the settings i can find and every type of alteration is set to default or off..... Its a pain in the ass when all you want to do is be able to hear peoples voices when your playing a game. How else am i supposed to figure out what they are saying when there are no subtitles!!!!!

I had a similar problem back in the days of '98, probably a completely different issue but this one was caused by an IRQ conflict, I changed the IRQ that the soundcard was using in the BIOS (onboard sound) and it worked perfectly!

If you've already tried uninstalling & re-installing the sound drivers, I'd say it's worth a look in the BIOS (if you have onboard sound that is) to check that you haven't got anything non-sensical pertaining to the integrated sound chipset in there. Just a thought...
