I don't really know how to describe to you how it sounds. It's not that it's a small tinny quality of sound, (I would just keep quiet and buy earphones), the problem is worse - it just doesn't sound "right", it sounds garbled and as if I'm hearing the music or speech through a machine (a noisy machine at that).
I'm terrible at computers, please don't tell me to check my DV2 R at the Linus Vod Drivers in the Javascript (I'm sure that makes no sense but I'm just explaining how I have no idea about computers..) So please.. talk to me like I'm the dummy I am!!! i.e. Racquel - go to Start. In Start go to Programs. Or to Control Panel. Click on... etc etc. If I have to check which windows I have, please tell me where to look for that.

Thank you so much to anybody who can help me with this annoying problem!!!

Can you connect external speakers or try ear phones?

First of all, thank you for responding.
Secondly, I tried ear phones and I don't hear anything at all.
Also, I tried looking in my control panel (see I do know how to find something! :-) and where there should be speakers etc, there is this notation:
no audio output device is installed.
Is this something that I have to download?
Thanks again warlock!

I know you don't want to but, you have to help. Put up the model of your computer, should be a tag somewhere and what windows you are running. Sounds to me like your missing some updates, or driver issues.

I go with warlock on the driver issue. But does it only sound like that in one channel ?
Is it still under warranty ?

"I tried ear phones and I don't hear anything at all."
Are you positive that they were plugged in to the headphone jack as opposed to the microphone jack? On my little Acer, the two are only 3/4 inch apart from one another and not particularly well marked.
