I never posted here, but here it goes :P

The other day I turned my pc on and when I played some music, the speakers gave a strange echo, like I was in a tunnel. It started to annoy me, and I don't know how can I shut it off.

Any thoughts?

please post the make and model of your speakers and soundcard

the make and model of your speakers should be on the front of your speakers. for your soundcard if you right click "my computer" and click properties and go into "hardware manager" you can find it there.


it sounds like either the treble or the bass is gone in your speaker system or the wires are shotty. A speaker works by reversing the electromagnetic flow of energy coming into it, doing this hundreds or thousands of times per second creates sound.

you should also not how your system is setup. Including the number of wires, how they connect, if it is a standard PC audio system connection. Essentially give us as much info as you can possibly think of.

But, first thing's first; instead of checking all of that, check something that takes a few of clicks. Enter your Audio Driver (for example, Realtek AC97), search a bit, and you'll see sound effects. It should be Default or Normal or something like that. If it isn't (if that's your tunnel effect), then change it of course.

If it's so, somebody either must've played with it, or it's just a glitch. :p

Haha I thought that would fix it as well, I had that happen to me once. I guess there is a bug either in Windows or for some soundcards when a random effect gets added for no apparent reason.
