    hey people

    Today I was listening to music in my PC when a very irritating problem started:

    Suddenly the sound started to go "muffled".
    You barely can listen to voices.

    My sound card has a few settings for some sort of "effects" on the audio but
    those were disabled by me.

    My sound card is a Sound III (Aztech).

    Is it time for new speakers?

    Thanks

    You will have to try another set of speakers or a sound card to determine
    where the fault is. Or, try the speakers on another computer.

    hmm
    hard to say.
    i assume you have amplified speakers ?
    what you should do is first plug in a head
    set using the same output as you are now for the
    speakers.
    if the sound is ok then you know its speakers ! other
    wise use some of your money and buy a new sound card.

    Solved it by moving the speaker' cable. I think there was a short or
    something...

  4. I had the same problem with my first computer.I discovered it was the poor
    quality of the ac-97 onboard audio.Bought a soundblaster 128,a QDI advance 9
    and a voodoo 3 3000 (state-of-the-art components, then).

    Tzortzakakis Dimitrios() showed us the
    following results:
    If this was onboard audio.. but no, it's a good old ISA sound card - great for
    MS-DOS programs. The audio quality is not the best, but very good, considering I
    got the card for very cheap (to replace a Rockwell sound card that was bad).
