View Full Version : Problem Configuring Sound

20-06-2006, 08:47 AM
On my; Asus 8V-MX mobo (Athlon 64), running WinXP Pro, I have on board sound - Realtek AC97 Audio for Via (R) Audio Controller.
The problem is the sound is tinny, sounds like people are speaking in a pipe or something - really awful for trying to use Skype or listen to the commentary from my wife's videoing.
I've tried every config I can think of and Googled as well, also changed speakers. But I still have the problem :confused: .
Would anyone have any suggestions please.

Installing a sound card should fix your problem, unless both sets of speakers were of a poor quality.

what drivers do you have installed?
are the windows sounds "tiny" ?
what movie/mp3 player are you useing and what codecs are you useing?

check the sound effects tab on the sound setup, it may show bathroom or stone room setting.

Thanks people; all fixed now. I downloaded new drivers (didn't think it would need them as computer quite new, but it just go's to show.....) and it works well now. :D
