...Installing an updated audio driver for your audio card? If not, open Device Manager to find your audio card. Then visit the computer manufacturer's website to see if there is a newer driver for the card.. If not, then you should be able to visit the audio card manufacturer's website to find an updated driver as well.
Hope this helps.
Okay, complete computer illiterate here, and I was silly enough to play around with my PCs volume controls etcetera, to try and get rid of an annoying crackling sound in my daughter's World of Warcraft.
The crackling sound is still there AND now the sounds in some other programs (e.g notifications in Yahoo Messenger, and even some of the in-game sounds in WoW but not all of them!) are very VERY low compared to for example the normal Windows sounds, the WoW music and so on. Also, those sounds that are now played very low do sound a bit tinny.
I have no idea what I changed and didn't change back as I fiddled with the volume control options. I have not changed anything to do with the sound card, the loud speakers and so on.
Any sound experts out there who immediately know what I did wrong and how I can fix it to get those sounds back to normal?
