    The sound thing makes sense to me. And speakers are cheap price anyways. Iam only about half mile from WalMart.
    I like to ask things like that before trying them. You can make a problem far worse than it is. I don't know much about a pc. Thanks great advise. Thank,s Chuck

    When I run ( scan now ) in command prompt, it goes to 57% stops and says bad sectors fix them.
    But when I click on my computer in start and right click and go to tools then click ( check ). It says drive is ok, no repair needed. Iam lost. Iam just average with computers. Any ideas, or is it ok?
    Acer Aspire S3-391 Windows 8 64 bit. Computer is only 4 months old. Thank,s Chuck

    Thank You Nuccii, worked perfect. I can explain anything about working on cars. But computers I know just about 60%. I got Defraggler by Piriform, Malwarebytes, Malwarebytes Anti Root Kits, ADW cleaner, CCleaner, Super Anti Spyware and of course Windows Defender antivirus. I got Windows 8 Windows Defender its good now, it wasn't in 7.
    I think Windows Defender in 8 are same as Microsoft Security Essentials, I read this, but not sure.
    Thank,s Chuck
