1st time post,be gentle
Hi im trying to fix a acer aspire 5630 for a friend .the sound is garbled underwater and sometimes also sounds like its slowing down , i tried updating the sound driver that didnt work so i uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it and this fixed the sound for about 3 weeks but the problem came back and the driver solution didnt work this time ,i also tried reseeting all audio options to default and i am in the middle of running lots of diffrent virus/spyware scans no luck yet ,i might try using the default windows sound drivers ,admittedly my friend did spill a bowl of cereal on it ages ago just wondering if anyone has any suggestions how to fix it
