Recently, I began to hear an echo in my headset which was not audible or barely so before. I tried a second headset, but it echoes too. I do not know if the headsets have feedback cancelling software built in but I doubt that. But if not, they did not have it before the problem started either. The problem lies, I think, in my computer's hardware or the sound circuits on my motherboard. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 660s, about six years old. Otherwise, the box works well; no other problems. Is there a fix other than an new computer?

Try going to Control Panel > Device Manager > Audio ... and right click then Update Driver

You must have a somewhat different version of Windows 7 than I. Mine does not have Device Manager>Audio. It does have Sound under Device Manager. In any case, it does not offer an update for drivers. I went to Dell Support on the net and found that the driver listed was rejected by my system as being older than the one installed. It must be an issue related to some sort of breakdown of my system, because I did not have this problem until recently. In any case, I do not wish to waste more time on it. I'll get used to the unpleasantness. It does not bother my caller, only me.

Computers are for individuals entertainment and the internet, a source of raw information. Otherwise, they are a huge waste of time. If libraries had more up to date systems, they would be the best answer for individuals. No need for backups, for updates, for anti-virus and anti-malware protection, for updates on the protections, for dealing with problems large and small. Maybe its better to put up with the slowness sometimes of library systems and "leave the driving to them". The alternative is to spend at least a thousand dollars on hardware and software and hours on maintenance and troubleshooting. Then there is the cost of internet connection! It is a technology that has outgrown itself. At the library, it's all free. They have the printers, scanners, and the internet connection. It also has WiFi, as does McDonald's. Then there would be no need to devote 1/3 of a room to a computer desk and the accessories. If one has not started with a computer, best thing is not to do so.

Thanks! I'll mark Solved. No longer watching or receiving emails.
