    Hello,

    I am having distortion issues with my HP Pavilion ze4547wm laptop.

    My audio from the laptop speakers seems to sound good, but when I plug the laptop into my home sound system, my music sounds very basse and distorted.

    I checked the device manager, but the sound card( ALi Audio Wave ) seems to be working properly

    The same with the codecs, or do I have too many? IMA ADPCM Audio Codec
    Microsoft ADPCM Audio Codec
    Microsoft CCITT G.711 Audio Codec
    Microsoft GSM 6.10 Audio Codec
    DSP Group TrueSpeech(TM) Audio Codec
    msg723.acm
    Windows Media Audio Codec
    Sipro Lab Telecom Audio Codec
    Fraunhofer IIS MPEG Layer-3 Codec
    Microsoft PCM Converter

    Thanks for your attention to this matter. I use this laptop at youth sporting events for sound effects and music.

    make sure you've plugged from laptops line out not headphone out
    if this is not available turn the volume out on laptop down

    I turned the output volume down because I dont have a line out jack.

    I updated the drivers for the sound card and got Windows Media Player to sound ok, But my sound board program(SoundByte) still sounds very Bassey and distorted.
