  1. Audio Echo

    Hello everyone, recently I've been having problem with audio on my PC. First, my mic was really bad, but on phone really good, I assumed it was drivers, i installed older drivers, and issue is fixed. Only issue i have now is that my friends can hear my pc audio on discord or in-game voice chat. When i had newer drivers, i had this Realtek Audio Console, and there was Autistic Echo Cancellation which when i turned it on and put my mic to 44100hz or 48000hz the echo would stop. The issue is i can't use new drivers because mic is unusable. So with old drivers, on Discord, when i turned on noise supression, it reduced music, but when someone on Youtube video or in-game is talking, they can hear that because discord thinks it's a person talking into mic, also i tried setting custom sensitivity but then if i become a little quiet the sensitivity isn't there and my mic cuts, so only option would be push-to-talk but it isn't really gonna be good because i play competitive games like CS:GO so when i'm shooting i can't also push a button to talk when i need to give info fast. Also i've bought usb soundcard to fix this but my mic is bad and echo is worse. What should I do?

    The audio has a slight echo to it and is louder than it was before

    Hi Colin,

    Thank you for being part of Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate you for trying some step in order to get the issue fixed.

    • Does the issue persist while you are online or offline or both?
    • What is the make and model of the laptop?
    When the audio starts acting weird the first step in getting the issue fixed is to make sure the audio drivers are up to date. I would recommend you to visit the manufacturer website and then download and update the latest audio drivers and then check if
    echo is removed.

    In the meantime you can turn off Audio enhancements and check if audio works:

    • Go to Start, enter Sound, and select Sound Control Panel
      from the list of results.

    • On the Playback tab, right-click (or tap and hold) the Default Device
      and select Properties.

    • On the Enhancements tab, select the Disable all enhancements
      check box and try to play your audio device.

    • If that doesn't work, select Cancel and, on the Playback
      tab, select another default device (if you have one), select the Disable all enhancements check box, and try to play audio again. Do this for each default device.

    Do get back to us for any issues pertaining in the future. We will be happy to help.

  3. Echo/reverb audio since last update


    When exactly do you get the sickening echo/reverb effect in the audio?

    Does this happen while playing an audio or a video file or on default Windows sound?

    Please let us know so that we may assist you better.

    I suggest you to roll back the driver from the Device manager by going to sound, controller and device section.

    Expand it, locate the audio device and from properties try to update the driver or roll back the driver.

    You may restart computer to check if Windows detect it.

    • Check your speaker and headphone connections for loose cables or the wrong jack.
    • Check your power and volume levels, and try turning all the volume controls up.
    • Some speakers and apps have their own volume controls, and you might have to check them all.
    • Try connecting using a different USB port.
    • And remember that your speakers probably won’t work when headphones are not plugged in properly.

    I suggest you to run the audio troubleshooter and check if the issue can be fixed.

    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    • Click view all in the left panel.

    • Select ‘Playing audio' and follow the on-screen instructions.
    Hope this helps in resolving the audio issue. We look forward to hear from you.

    Audio Echo Problem

    I was on my computer watching video and randomly my audio became very echoed. I didn't install any programs to cause this, and have tried reinstalling the audio drivers to no avail. Also, I didn't change any settings, and have adjusted them back and forth
    but still there is an echo sound .Any help would be much appreciated, it's fairly irritating having to listen to it whenever there is audio. Thanks.
