Every application on my PC has an echo. It started about 2 months ago but I just thought it was a glitch with one sound, turned off windows sounds, and ignored it. I can't remember precisely when it started, but it seems to have grown. Now I realize that EVERY sound is echoing. It is like the sound card is all of a sudden set to a hall setting or something. It is very weird and very annoying. I regularly run Ad-Aware & Spybot, I also have ZoneAlarm and AVG.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I don't know that it matters but I have:

Sound card Realtek AC'97 Audio

I am downloading this to see if it helps:

Realtek AC97 audio driver package a3.79

Applies to:
Realtek AC'97 audio controllers

Requirements
Windows 98/Me/2000/XP

File Size
17.8MB

we'll see

I have the same problem, in the same OS. :thumbsup:

I'm eager to see if your solution works.

edited to add: Weird. I have cable, but it's downloading at 4.16 KB/second. At this rate, it'll take close to an hour, instead of the minute it's supposed to. :flowers:

What's that all about?

Well, it took three tries and about three and a half hours (just over an hour for each try), but it worked, so it was worth it.

Groovy, baby. :thumbsup:

This sounds like an issue that I experience on occasion. I have a Sound Blaster Live card and sometimes when I switch out of my game when I have TeamSpeak running, if someone speaks during the transition it starts the echo problem. Don't know why it does it, but it does. The easy solution that I have found is to just go into the Device manager and click to delete the card from my computer. I then hit refresh and it automatically reinstalls it. Then remember to go back in and adjust your microphone, input, speaker volume to your preference. Hope this helps in the future.

But I'm glad it worked for you too! :flowers: :trumpet: :inlove: :cool:
