After I got off the web yesterday, my sound became VERY scratchy, and the volume was reduced drastically. Every program that uses sound is affected, even W7 itself.
Since I DO get sound (even though it is highly altered), I doubt it's mechanical, but I did reinstall Realtec After rebooting, the problem was still there.
I've found nothing in W7 that can help me adjust the QUALITY of sound. The troubleshooters find nothing wrong. But I only need ears to know something IS wrong.
What should I do that I haven't already tried? If it was an attack (which wouldn't surprise me), how can I find and get rid of it? I've run a Malwarebytes scan - no infections found.
Your people have been wonderful to me in the past, which is why I trust you . Please help?
