Windows 7: A strange sound problem in only my Windows

A strange sound problem in only my Windows

I'll try to explain it, I know the title didn't provide enough info for you... When I listen to a sound/song below 15 level of my speakers, there's an small echo (just echo of the sound), but if there's no sound playing on the computer and I increase my speakers to level 15 or more, a (Windows playing the sound when I adjust the level) will echo itself so much like I play the sound on level 100 (or the sound get repeated 100,000 times in the same time) and it will not stop until I get my speakers below 15. It takes up to 3 seconds for this to happen though. Other sounds will too echo themselves like this if they are on level 15 or more. What's funny is that if it's on 14 level, the sound will only echo itself one time. If it's on 15, it will echo itself and never stop. The strange thing is that it only happens in the Windows I am using, I have 2 Windows installed and only one of the Windows do this, so this means the problem is not in the speakers.

Don't ask me when or how it happened, I wasn't the one who used the computer when this happened.

Some sound have options for "Enhancements" and one of the Enhancement is Echo. 1st thing to check.
Second, since there are two Windows installations and one does not do it, uninstall the current sound driver, RESTART WINDOWS (do not skip this step) and install the one that was used on the other Windows installation. If both had the same sound driver installed, uninstall the sound driver, RESTART WINDOWS then install the sound driver again.

No PC Specs were supplied so we can't address your specific PC and sound hardware.

Thanks for the answer, reinstalling the driver strangely fixed my issue. I thought of reinstalling the driver shortly after the issue happened, but I didn't find a reason to do so (the driver was not updated, modified or anything), it was the same driver and version as on my other Windows installation. That was really strange issue, I guess there's some sort of a problem with the driver which causes this issue, but I can't recreate it (as it didn't happened to me).

PS: "Echo" feature in Enhancements can't do this. What I was trying to explain is that when the volume level was high, every sound which was playing on the computer repeated itself at least 15 times in maybe 1 second at the same time, creating massive wave of the same sound (which makes pain for listening to).

PS2: Sorry for posting the thread in the wrong section, I really didn't know the forum has section "Sound & Audio", I don't know how I missed it.
