Windows 7: ECHO echo sounds

17 Aug 2009   #11

Dual boot Win7 Home Premium and Vista Home Premium SP2

I think (THINK) I have found the 'problem', When I right-click on the speaker icon on the system tray and launch the audio control, I notice I have an icon for speaker volume for all applications and all of the open Internet Explorer tabs. ALL are working and all were set to HIGH volume.

By closing down a couple (especially IE8 tabs) the distortion/echo disappeared....temporarily.

I say temporarily as, if I was watching for example a youtube video with sound, adjusted the sound in the system tray speaker audio control BUT then moved away from IE as the main window (say I moved onto MS Word for example), them went BACK to watch the video thru IE8, NO sound was then present. I have to "re-enable" the sound via the same control.

This seems a bug of sorts?

Interested in others comments...

You should have a single instance of IE in the systray volume. This could be an issue in 7100, or your driver, or the mix of the two. I do not know.
