Windows 7: Annoying Sound Issue, Very 'Moody' Speakers

Annoying Sound Issue, Very 'Moody' Speakers

Hi All.

We have some very odd speakers here.
We've been having problems with them for a while, but they have gotten to a point where we can't even listen to YouTube videos anymore.

A year ago I noticed I had 'moody' speakers. Sometimes they would work fine, but the next day they could they would have an odd 'echo' effect. The sound would play, but the words are very faint, so it just plays the audio of a track, but no words. It sounds sorta creepy. It didn't happen all the time, so I let it go.

Now recently we can hardly get it to work at all. If we play a song that is just music, it works quite good. But when we play a song off Youtube or on WMP it sounds weird. I don't even know how to explain it. I made a video of what it sounds like on YouTube. This video has people talking. It's an Ipad 2 ad.

If it does work, you have to be careful you don't move or bump the computer otherwise it will turn off.

I have been trying the 'turn off, turn on' speaker trick. Which HAD been working. But now it doesn't work anymore.

I also had the same problem on My own computer in my room. But that's because the green cord at the back was out. But with this computer the green cord is in perfectly.

The Sound problem is worse on YouTube videos than WMP.

The Sound works perfectly on my earphones. Just instrumental or songs with lyrics. So It is a speaker issue.

If it is ONLY a speaker issue, the first thing to do is "reseat" (unplug then plug back in) all the connectors associated with the speaker system - the connection(s) to the computer and the internal connections between the speakers.

Since the speaker system in your computer room works OK, move that system to the problem computer and hook them up to that computer and see how they work.

What kind of speakers do you have? 2.1 system, just two stereo speakers, a 5.1 surround sound system? and what is brand and model number of the speakers?

I have no idea on the type of speakers. They don't have a brand name or any numbers on them, apart from saying "Hi-FI sound System CE".
I've tried taking the plugs out and Dad has tried with the cords as well. Nothing has helped.
As for the speakers in my room, I could try those. But there is a cord missing to them, the last time I used them was months ago. The cord somehow disappeared.

We did get a 'humming' working noise from the speakers today. But when we went to try them out, still no sound. We don't have that noise anymore

edit: we can't even play music using the earphones . Just went to check

You can also check those speakers with an iPod or any similar MP3 player or audio player that has a headphone output. Just plug the 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo plug that you plug into the PC's GREEN speaker jack to the audio player and see if they work OK there.

As you didn't fill out the "My System Specs" we can only guess as to what your current problems are. Please fill them out as it helps whoever is trying to assist you.

(I see you are in New Zealand. I recently did a steel guitar track for a recording studio there. The CD is "Kids Sing Bob Dylan" - a project for a school).

You seem to have reverb (or some kind echoing sound effects) running. Try turning off the mic. It might be looping through, causing an echo (reverb) effect.

The effect you describe matches the effect of cancelling out the stereo channels. This usually happens with faulty 3.5mm jacks. Check your computer connections, make sure they work.
