Windows 7: Audio distorted, tinny, sounds like its underwater or..
28 Feb 2010
Have u fixed ur problem?
Search for these symptoms and listen to them..
- U hear fans humming
- U hear low but high pitched whistling sound coming from between PSU and CPU fans
- U hear more then 1 BEEP on system start up
If not try this for any case thats how i sloved mine problem...
- Uninstall Video drivers and install one u got with ur GPU...
- Uninstall Audio drivers and make fresh install...
- Turn of ur computer after installation
- Unplug everything from it ( mouse, keyboard etc etc...)
- Open Computer case and see if theres dust in PSU, CPU and GPU fans...
- Plug everything back and turn on ur computer...
From what i think is that some of ur drivers are not properly installed and some of your devices like, GPU, might not work properly even if Windows 7 is showing everything is OK...
Now i am thinking that my problem is solved by fresh install of drivers and by Power Cycle booting when i was cleaning fans... and it restored everything...
GL mate with ur problem, plz responed if this helped... anyone...

A weird thing to mention is that although the ingame sounds work, I can BARELY hear anyone on their microphones talking, i can only make out their speech when I turn my volume way up, resulting in my ears bleeding from the gunshot sounds.
Mp3s, CDs, internet media (such as youtube) all experience the distorted, tinny, underwater sounding sound. I have been in contact with ASUS tech support - they are useless. I have installed the latest Windows 7 updates, I have the latest drivers for the onboard VIA VT1708S audio chipset, and I have all the latest codecs installed (used the CCCP pack). I have tried using MULTIPLE media players, VLC, winamp, windows media player, etc, all to no avail - which isnt the problem since in game microphone from other users doesnt run through a media player anyway. Ive made sure ANY environmental or EQ settings are disabled JUST incase those are causing an issue.
Ive tried multiple drivers, although I am 99.99999% sure it is NOT a driver issue, as the same issues arise with, or without drivers.
I have tried nearly everything I, and many others on the internet have thought of, and all I can think is that it is some sort of windows 7 software communication issue. Like I said I am in contact with ASUS tech support, but I dont think its any kind of hardware issue, and they treat me like a complete moron telling me to try things that I have already CLEARLY stated to them that I have tried (I told them exactly the driver I had installed, and that I got it directly from their website, and in the response mail I got I was told to install the same driver I had said I had installed..)
This is really, incredibly annoying, and I cannot seem to find any solutions searching the net, I have SCOURED google to no end. Ive come across people having similar issues, but no real answer was ever posted in any of the threads I came across; I guess those people gave up and put a bullet through their heads.
I dont really expect any answers,, but yeah, im hoping.
Thanks to anyone who reads.
Okay I found the problem. Right click on the speaker icon on your taskbar. Click "playback devices". Double click on headphones microphones or speakers (whichever is having the problem) and then go to the levels tab. There will be a button labeled balances. Click that and set the second scale to zero. That should take away the fact that you can barely hear them. I finally found out how to fix it. My youtube vids sounded like they were underwater. It was frustrating because I'm in college with a lot of hybrid classes. That means youtube videos and the quality of the audio made it a headache to deal with.
