    Headphone Audio sounds distorted


    Last night I was in a Skype call with my friends and it sounded funny but I didn't notice it.
    (I had earbuds which I gave it away to my relative.)

    I bought some headphones the other day by the way and it came today.
    Before giving away the earbuds I was playing Team Fortress 2 and it sounded weird a little and it was bothering.

    Yet I still continued, after a while I got the headphones and plugged it in the audio jack or what do you call it and its where you plug the headphones or whatever in. So I played TF2 again and the sound was messed up, I could barely hear people and when I watch certain youtube videos it is buzzing very loudly and some I can't hear and some are fine.

    I continuously search for an answer, I found a post on here so I decided do the solution on that forum but it didn't work. I used the Minion's Banana song and if I can't hear the second left minion well and it's sound is distorted or messed up then it's still happening.

    Post I found is here,
    Messed up headphone audio; want to check headphone jack
    I think it is the place where you plug it in, somethings wrong with it so any solutions?

    I assume, from your posts, that the internal speakers work OK?

    If the headphone out has NEVER worked correctly and the PC is still in warranty, best option is to call HP as only HP can get it corrected under warranty.

    The audio is messed up when it's plugged in, yet it's perfectly fine unplugged

    That confirms what I asked, about "internal speakers work OK".

    Assuming the headsets you have used are known good headsets, it points to a possible hardware problem. As I previously noted, if its still in warranty, call HP (or whoever you have the warranty with) as only they can get it corrected under warranty,

    Apparently the warranty is gone, I've had this for a long time. What should I do?!
