    This morning when I woke up and decided to listen to my music I expected the usual crisp quality to which I am used to, but instead I heard a rather echoey and dam right annoying sound. I thought my speakers were on the way out so I changed them with a pair I know work in the living room. So I crossed my fingers as I pressed play and turned the volume up; again the echoey annoying sound.

    So now I am ever so confused and don't know what to do. I doubt my soundcard is on the way out because this PC is barely 6 months old.. Hey-elp:(


    EDIT - I found out what was wrong.. had a sound effect thing on in my setup thingymajiggy.

    Man do I feel stupid :lol:

    Mine was on the stone corridor I think.

    But I do have another query regarding sound, my msn noise alerts have just turned off and I can't get them back on. If anyone else suggested reinstalling I will scream, because most install require rebooting and if I reboot my msn screws itself anyways >.<

    My PC is crap.. I wanna go back to linux :(

    You had Linux? How is that, I'm surprised how much praise its received for being a free OS. It looks interesting but I'd only get it if I had a second hard drive.

    Like it's price makes a difference. Linux is open-source, so that means people are constantly working on it and making it better...unlike Windows, which is proprietary crap that continues to suck, even after they've spent 3 years on Vista, and it's still not that great.

    I normally make the assumption that something that's free isn't worth my time (unless its from a very famous company, ex. AVG free has a crazy high download count on download.com.

    Because if it's closed-sourced and expensive as fuck, it definitely means you won't get a BSOD every 5 seconds if make the slightest mistake. Considering how well developed it is, y'know.

    open-source = more people working on it = better developed = problems fixed way faster

    Enjoy waiting till Patch Tuesday for that critical security patch that Microsoft's already fixed, but refuses to release it until the traditional patch Tuesday, regardless that it's the highest severity level there is. Yes, it has happened before.

    Then again, they both have their downfalls.
