I was referred to this forum from: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic220249-30.html

Recently my speakers havent been giving off any sound. I went to Control Panel>Sounds and audio devices>Voice>Test Hardware and noticed the Playback volume was all the way down. After bringing it back up I got my sound back but now my speakers give off a echo with every sound. Like its being played in a hall or something. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like a feedback problem with the microphone. Switch off the mic and see if that helps.

Muted mic (even though i dont have one) but still no change in the sound. Everything seems to be in place in Sound Effect Manager also.

Well...I would try different speakers (temporarily), in an effort to determine if it's the sound card or the speakers themselves which pose the problem.

Does your sound card have any software that came along with it? I've had users at work experience that problem when they decided they needed the sound manager software that went along with their cards. Inside the software options were choices for echo/reverb/sound like you're in a tunnel/anything which can were what was causing the issue you described.

I agree with ilikecake


I am running a Creative Soundblaster X-Fi soundcard along with 7.1 surroundsound which has its own "Music Console" from which you can run many different sound capabilities.


One of these is called "EAX Effects"

I can change the music from having "No EAX effects" to music that sounds like its coming from an amphiatheater or jazzclub, or Opera Hall, or orchestra pit and so-on. But; when I enable one of these sounds at too high of a decibel level it sounds like I am listening to music whilst sitting in a 50 gallon steel drum.


Do have any software such as this?

Check your program list and also check add and remove programs to see.


let us know!
