Audio echos like in bathroom or spkr phone

Specs: Windows XP
I am running WIndows XP and when listening to audio files for typing reports and listening to music, I get an echo sound. It sounds like person talking is on speaker phone and across the room, not at the microphone. When listening to music, sounds like in a bathroom or large open area, (cave).

I have already muted the microphone and have no Sound Effects tab. Also do not have CD for sound card.

Do you have a video camera that may have a mic in it?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Make sure the plug for the speakers is firmly seated in the audio jack on your computer.

You must have sound effects enabled somewhere. find out the name of your audio card, if it is a card and download the software for it. It must be on the computer already, but where. Did you do a search for the name of it? Look in device manager for a name.

THX 1138,

Yes I have done that, however when I plug my speakers into the front main headphone jack I get no sound at all.

Grasshopper,

Would "sound card" be in the name in the device manager? My brother set up the system for me and I have no CD's or anything to go with the things put on the system. So could you tell me how to go there and find the sound card and download what I need?

Did it ever work correctly?

Either the sound is being echoed by another mic or by some electronic process. Any chance there is a build in mic or secondary mic?

Some effects could be from software provided by the audio card company maybe.

Might just create a new user and see if they also have this issue. If so or not you can then delete the user as it was only for tests. Delete user and files.
