Win10 upgrade gives sound echo/reverb

Q: Win10 upgrade gives sound echo/reverb

Three days ago my Windows 7 computer upgraded itself (without my permission) to Windows 10. Mostly this hasn't mattered as I've quickly found how to fix or do things that have altered. However my sound system is now unusable because of echo/reverberation. I have checked that all drivers for the sound components are up to date (the Win10 install did this automatically it seems from the dates shown). I have attached screen-grab images of the System and Sound components descriptions. I would appreciate help on how to fix this.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i brought a heaset to use on my laptop and when i installed it it sort of had bad reverb and i can't get rid of it.

can someone help me

btw i check the volume controll and thy seem fine. it is something else


I'm guessing it's Realtek based Onboard sound?

In the Control panel there should be a "Sound Effects Manager" or something similar, make sure the Environment is set to Default, or None.

If your PC uses something other than AC97, find out what it is - you could use this

One of the great misfortunes of how the sound stack works in Windows Vista/7 is that hardware accelerated audio has been rendered largely irrelevant, requiring messy workarounds to get EAX and and other hardware accelerated sound effects working...

No PC Spec's or at least the make and model number of the laptop, so we can't specifically address your system.

However, some audio systems, such as Realtek have a separate management panel (Realtek has the HD Audio Manager) with Sound Enhancement options including Echo, reverb, chorus, etc. Check yours and turn off any enhancement.

Is there any adjustments or settings in xp that will fix this problem? The previous owner says that sound was just fine. I have checked sound and sound schemes but all seems okay there. The computer is for games and programs only - no internet access.

I am using an Inspiron 15 3558. It is brand new (bought on 04/03/16) but I am having a sound issue when I use my Skullcandy earphones. When I watch videos online (which is  quite often) I have echoing sound. This issue occurs when the video is just starting or if it has been paused at any point (such as buffering) and resumed. This echo only occur when I use headphones. I have used the HDMI output and the built-in speaker system and have not experienced the echo with those.
I have fund a temporary solution in unplugging the headphones and plugging them back in while continuing the play the video. However, this solution becomes a problem for those around me who are uninterested in my media while they themselves are watching and listening to their media.
Are there any more permanent solutions?

HP Pavilion DV5000 that has an echo in the sound when playing any DVD.

SP 2
1.5 GHZ 896 RAM


I am not real computer savvy on these things.
It doesn't seem to make any difference what type of DVD we try it still echo's. It will play a music CD just fine.
The first program we used was Media Player then tried QuickTime and it was the same.
It appears there is a Realtec driver so I updated it and since I have never done anything else to the system I believe that is the only sound card or thingey it has.

I read though the forum on sound. There was one that mentioned an echo and to fix it go to >>MY COMPUTER<< >>CONTROL PANEL<< >>SOUND<< but I could not find it?

Where do I go from here?

A:Echo Sound When Playing Any Dvd

If the system has Realtek sound, there may be an icon on your taskbar for a control centre. It usually looks like a small blue set of antlers - it's actually a crab! If this exists, double-click it and you should find a section for Effects - the Reverb option may be checked as active.

Ive tried resetting the audio to default but its still the same. the computer does this only when its streamed not when i play any music etc that is already saved to memory.
its not due to a wifi problem as it still does it when i connect via ethernet cable direct to the router. its not the router 'cos my desktop works fine.
Anyone got any ideas? this is driving us mad!

Could you remove and reinstall the audio driver? You can do this in the device manager (Go to Start>Right Click on My Computer>Select Manage>Select Device Manager in left hand pane>Double Click on Sound, Video and Game Controllers>Right Click on Driver thats shows up and select Uninstall.

Go to the computer manufacturer's website to obtain sound driver or simply install from provided CD.

I received the free win 10 upgrade from an invitation to reserve the upgrade. The other day, a Ransomware hit me, and though I believe I may have immediately tracked & deleted all affected files I could find, I hardly believe I could be so skilled as to be successful.

I had this happen last year, and ended up formatting the unit, and reloading Win 7. I don't want to have to go back to 7, but how do I get another Win 10? Is there a key I need to find & save? A free site that I can get a copy on a flash drive to load from? Any help would be appreciated. I have no clue how to proceed since it's an online download, and once formatted, the unit won't be able to get online without the OS

I have a custom built pc that my friend put together for me. This also has a sound card problem - The sound stops working after a sound has been played more than a couple of times, and the computer might freeze or restart after a while. I know this is the sound card/driver because the computer works fine when i disable the driver. I meant to use this computer for multimedia so i have an asus motherboard with an external echo event gina 20 sound card.
I have tried downloading an re-installing the driver but that doesnt work. I'm guessing something must be configured wrongly, or the driver isnt compatible for some reason.

A:Another sound card problem! echo event

Hi benz925,
i have exactly the same problem than you with a gina 20 and a Asus P5GD2 premium wireless edition Mobo ...;(
For me , that's not a drivers problem , i have install the Gina with the same drivers on another compute with the same XP pro sp2 and it works fine.
I think there are a conflict between mobo and the gina and really i don't know how to fix that.
The more simple is to put the mail i send to echo support ( without any response , not too cool) for explain my problem and all the things i have try to fix it and it will be cool to stay in touch if we find something.
What is the reference of your Mobo please ?

My mail to Echo-support :
Hello Echo, and first sorry for my terrible english, i 'm from France.
I can't make work my gina 20 with my new config and i've try a lot of things and all your latest drivers 6.11, 6.08, 6.05, so perhaps you can help me.
the card still work fine on my olds computers, and also with a more recent config with XP pro sp2 installed by me identically to my compute ( brother's computer )with the 6.11 drivers.
On mine, install is fine with all the drivers versions for W2K/XP and it seems to have no problem on the device manager.
But i have no sound and chaotic problem with all software calling the asio wdm drivers :
no sound, or sometimes white noise
software that crash or not read any audio events
no output level in the console or sometimes all in the red

Softs work fine with the cheap sound card integrated with the mobo ( but cheap sound, lot of latency, not a gina

I've reinstall completely XP ,without the plug&play option in the bios to prevent hardware conflicts, so i don't have any other soundcard (disabled in bios also), no wifi, no lan,no drivers of graphic card, nothing ...

Gina appear on IRQ 21 without sharing or conflict and it's always the same problem ;(

So i just describe my config and perhaps you have an idea to something to test, it will be wonderful :

pentim 640 3.2Ghz
mobo asus p5GD2 premium (last bios) with chip sound: c-media9880 (same problem with sound chip enabled in bios and not installed)
GC Gigabyte 6600 GT
1 Go ddr2 533 corsair select
hd hitachi S-ATA
win XP PRO sp2
Antec sonata (alim 380 w)
and .. echo Gina 20

Perhaps my sound card is too old for one of this new components and i have to stop to experienced ? In this case it will be better with a Gina 24 or 3G ?

Thanks a lot by advance for support me, i'm really out of idea to try.

Have a good day, and whatever, thanks for the excellent sound of your products.

Hello,I have a problem with sound -  hearing echo, which is caused by internal subwoofer. Disabling all sound effects (Control Panel > Sound > Playback, Speakers, Properties > Enhancements) solves the problem, but I also get lower sound quality (subwoofer gets disabled, lower volume, etc). Is there any way to solve it? I am using Windows 7 64bit with latest driver from Lenovo website.Sound quality was perfect when I was using Windows 10, but I just dont like them so Im sticking with 7. UPDATE:Using Windows 10 64bit audio driver fixed the problem.

Hello all,

I'm having trouble with a mic static and echo on one of my computers. I have tried plugging it into the audio jacks in the front and back, and I even bought a pci audio card to see if that would work but the issue persists.

I have tried multiple headsets with the same result, and I have tested the headsets on my other computer with no problems.

I'm not sure what to do from here.

Thanks for any help.

I have an older laptop (probably 6-7 years old, Dell Inspiron running Windows 7) and its been running fairly slow lately. I saw a notice that today is the last day to upgrade to Win10 for free. Just looking for some good advice on whether or not I should even consider upgrading.

My first thought is that, with an older machine, I probably have a lot of junk on my hard drive causing the slowness so I need to clean it up (which means I'll miss the "today is the last day" bit...but do I really care?). I also think maybe my processor won't be able to handle the new version, but not sure if that's really a concern or not.

Can I ask for some advice? Thanks

My wife's computer could not upgrade to win 10 cause it had an old video card. I upgrade motherboard and video card. Win 7 is registered, but can not upgrade. The free upgrade tool still shows the other video card. Tried the media creation tool and still goes back to the upgrade box with the old card. Is there anyway to erase that upgrade box and redue it?

A:Help with win10 upgrade

Check for any left over files or drivers from your old video card. Windows is still finding it somewhere. Check your device manager 1st just to see if its listing 2 video cards, then check your program folders for any left overs. Also just for backup reasons, download a program on this forum called Showkey which will give you the information on your currant Windows Key, incase you need it to upgrade to Windows 10.

Hi everyone, this is my first visit and post and I hope you can assist
where others have failed. I have tried to install Win 10

good enough or words to that effect.

PC1 has Intel Pent G3220 3.00 GHz Haswell chip.

PC2 has Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00 GHz.

Both of these are way over the required
minimum spec so I cannot understand why Win10 will not install.

A:Unable to upgrade to Win10 or even try it out.

Welcome to the forum. Its likely either your cpu cant handle PAE, NX and SSE2 or its not set in the bios

To test for PAE, NX, and SSE2, download a program called "CPU-Z" and run it. On the main window, look under the "Instructions" heading for SSE2, EM64T (which also indicates the processor supports PAE) and either VT-d or VT-x, which is required for NX support. If you have all 3, then you are good to go.

My current computer has a retail copy of Win8. I'm building a new PC this weekend and I want to utilize the free upgrade to Win10 from my current retail version of 8, but I understand the free upgrade is tied to hardware.

Would my best option be to migrate Win8 to the new PC and upgrade from there? Alternatively, would I be better to just upgrade to 10 now and then migrate to the new PC afterwards? I imagine I can just discover the product key using something like Belarc Advisor, but then I don't know if the key will be accepted for activation on the new hardware... Thoughts?

My only poroblem with RC7100 revolves around the fact that through my speakers, when playing music, I get an "echo-ey" sound....I thought it was because I had placed my microphone too close to the speakers and/or had my microphone turned up too loud (no such problem when set up the same when I boot into Vista)...but no, adjusting volume setting and/or moving microphone to a different location has not solved this 'echo' in my music!

Bit strange, bit annoying, as I do listen as I work!

Device Manager shows no dreaded exclaimation marks, crosses or the like and all drivers are up to date.

A:Can I upgrade h8-1230 from Win7 to Win10?

Greetings, Win 7 upgrades to Win 10 can be problematic with no easy way back to Win 7 unless you have a good image and bootable rescue media. The safest way to upgrade is to clone your existing Win 7 install to a second HDD or SSD. Connect only the cloned HDD to your PC to do the upgrade. Carefully read this entire article by Ed Bott to learn what needs to be done, and the time invested, if you have to rebuild Windows 7.  Win 10 may have the correct WLAN driver as well as all other drivers needed to run correctly or the upgrade could choke. You still have the original Win 7 install on the first HDD and can move on with your computing life. Cheers!

A:MS says I can't upgrade my laptop as HP has not tested win10 on it.

I'll take a stab at this one..
From my experience with HP they do drop support for some of the products and you get stuck with the last OS that was installed on it.,. for example I had a nice desktop and it only would support Win7. When I tried to run Win8 on it .. well it would work fine but when I went to shut it down for the night and restart it that's when it would fail. Seems HP will not provide the updates to support new OS's. And this also applies to other OEM's.

Now having said all of that here is one option you have. Make sure you can make a system backup and backup your personal data. When that's done make sure you can restore the system and you're comfortable with the process.

At this point you could perform a clean instillation of 10 and see what happens. IF it fails to work properly just restore your PC to the previous settings with the backup you made.

... yes.. complicated but that's the best advice I can offer at the moment
And welcome to the forums

Like in the topic. Please help; after upgrading to Win 10 there is no keys-backlight after using the FN + Z combination. in bios (after upgrading) everything is fine; so when I turn backlight ON or OFF backlight runs out, but there is problem with Toshiba Funcktion Key driver I think.
I did the reinstalation of this driver, have others toshiba drivers for Win 10 installed (Eco, system driver etc.). Toshiba Funckction key runs for several seconds after system bots up, and is blocked (?) by something after jus several seconds. Weird and very annoying. The fun is that combination for screen brightness (FN + F6 or F7) and for volume up/down (FN + 3 / 4) runs perfectly vell. Backlight
I think the problem is connected with Toshiba Funcktion Key program.

Thinkpad W540 will not upgrade to Win10 via Windows Update. Have also downloaded Media Creation Tool and Win10 iso file. All are 64-bit as is my processor and current Win8.1 Pro w/ Media Center. Have tried running MCT and iso as administrator with no success. I'm running out of time for a free upgrade! System has 8GB RAM and plenty of free space on hard drive. All 8.1 updates and patches are installed. All drivers are updated. Please help!

A:W540 - Win10 upgrade problems

OOPS -- saw you tried this already. ------------------------------------Have you tried obtaining the upgrade directly from Microsoft via their Win10 Media Creation tool? You will be able to download an entire .ISO file to burn a CD or create a bootable USB stick: This works better, sometimes, than the Windows upgrade pestering message.  Good luck!----------------------------------------- How are you fixed for disk space?  The upgrade needs qute a bit of extra room ~ 5 - 10 GB, at least, to store previous machine state.

I've a A70 ThinkCentre initialy with W7.
Since the update (almost compulsory) towards Windows 10, my explorer of files closes alone, approximately every 53 seconds... To describe a little more my "breakdown" after my tries of this evening: it is the process " explorer Windows " that is reset doubt approximately the 50 seconds.So closes the explorer, the configuration panel, etc. Everything closes at the same time.The desk becomes black some milliseconds then re-appears.It occurs permanently, even if the explorer is not opened, the desk resets...As if something made the " end of spot "...What's to be done?
Is the A70 compatible with W10?

A:A70 - Win Explorer closes after Win10 upgrade from...

The A70 is not on the list of Lenovo Win 10 supported systems.    Your Intel processor is several generations before official Win 10 starts. 
There are ways to prevent Win 10 reminders and unwanted automatic downloads, Google for them.

I experience a very frequent BSODs. I've searched the inet for the symptom, everyone blames Alcohool 120%. I've never had it.

I attach the system information file with 50 minidumps. I would be thankful if you could help me to identify the reason for these BSODS.

Thanks in advance.

I downloaded the upgrade by means of the "Windows10UpgraderApp", it completed the initial check and the whole download. At the second restart the installation got stuck at 32%. Switching off the pc, the previous release was automatically restored in few minutes.
It's an almost powerful laptop. I have large amount of RAM and HD space available. The current version is 1511, build SO 10586.589

I'm still on Win7, I noticed that their pop up window to install Win10 has changed, there is no option to select another date for the install, it were only ever 3 days ahead anyhow.

I'm wondering, is the free offer coming to an end then?

Looking through some of the past threads on here, I see that some have reverted back to their old OS after dabbling with Win10, I'm wondering if I should even bother/risk trying it to be honest?.....Although I dare say that I'll be forced to in the end.

A:Free win10 upgrade, MS now getting pushy about it.

The offer is for a year - July 2016 (it was released on 29th July 2015)

It seems according to the update history, my computer is trying to upgrade itself to Windows 10 automatically. Can it actually do this without asking me? I didn't reserve the upgrade so it shouldn't be trying to upgrade. Did it fail noticing that I didn't reserve the upgrade?
