Check that the speaker cable is plugged into the GREEN ringed "Speaker" jack (for a normal stereo sound set up). Check that the speaker isn't muted in system tray. Right click the speaker in the system tray. Click Volume Control Options and make sure you have the analog Realtek Audio selected - not any HDMI or Digital output. Open "Control Panel" in Windows. Open "Device Manager" found in the "Hardware and Sound" heading. Locate "Sound, Video.." Make sure there is no small icon over it to indicate that there is a problem. If there is, click the triangle to the left and open "Realtek.." Right click it and select properties. Click the Driver tab and then "Uninstall" If an option to remove files is presented - select it, too. Click OK to uninstall. Reboot if prompted. Allow Windows to find the "new" Realtek hardware and download drivers from Live Update. Sound should be restored. Make sure that you have selected Analog
Sounds From Computer Speakers My
wife had an interesting issue over the weekend. Anything she played on
her computer came through the speakers sounding like chipmunks. You've
heard the Alvin and the Chipmunks albums, that's what it sounded like.
It didnt matter if it was a Windows sound (wav file), and MP3, a WMV,
or any other multimedia. Everything sounded like a chipmunk was playing
it. The sounds were played too fast and too high pitched.
computer is an Acer with a Realtek sound card built into the
motherboard. It has the Realtek HD Audio Manager built into it and I
thought at first that something had changed with the audio settings.
However, after examining the audio utility and choosing to reset the
environment back to its defaults the chipmunk sound was still present.
Realtek Manager also has an option for Karaoke Mode, which basically
removes the voice track when playing a song. Changing this feature had
no effect on the system.
Uninstalling and Reinstalling the
only way I found to truly fix the issue was to uninstall and reinstall
the Sound Card. Follow the directions below to accomplish this.
1) Open Device Manager by Right-clicking on My Computer and choosing
Properties. Then click on Device Manager
Under the Sound, Video, and Game Controllers section, Right-click on
Realtek High Definition Audio and then click on Uninstall.
3) Close the Device Manager and Reboot your computer
After the computer reboots, allow it to automatically find the Realtek
audio device on its own and reinstall the drivers. You may be required
to reboot the computer a second time after the drivers for the sound
5) Test the sound card by playing an MP3, WAV, WMA, or other sound or
by watching a video online.
problem should be fixed. If for some reason, you are still experiencing
a chipmunk-like sound coming from your speakers, visit the sound card
manufacturers website and download and install new drivers for the
click on the up arrow at the bottom right of your computer screen and you should see a RED speaker looking icon,double click that and set it up if that doesn't fix this then right click on the icon and click on audio devices and click on the application that says RealTek Speakers and click APPLY and then click the OK button and you should be good!If you can't get it to work make sure both the USB cable and the green audio cable are plugged in before you launch an application such as youtube or whatever.Hope this helps! -CB

software is a realtek then right mouse click on it , then you'll find
disable , just disable it and then uninstall the audio driver software

First run through the standard trouble shoot. Don't be put off by the obvious nature of the standard trouble shoot. I have been on a number of calls that resulted in resolution because of a loose or damaged cable that just happened to coincidence with a system update.
1. Is the audio cable connected to the output. 2. If the audio output device requires power. Is it powered on? 3. If the 1 and 2 are AOK. Then follow the instrutions below.
1. Open control panel. 2. Open the device manager and double click the audio adapter. 3. Determine the make and model of the card. (Write this information down.) 4. Visit the manufacturer's website and click download drivers. a) Select the card model. b) Select the operating system. c) select to download the driver. 5. Decompress the zip file and read the instructions for installation of the driver. Follow the instructions.
Alternative path to resolution. 1. Open control panel. 2. Open the device manager and double click the audio adapter. 3. Click advanced. 4. Make sure you have god connection to the internet. If so then proceed to clicking update driver. When the system asks if you want it to search online or search locally tell it to look online. This will prompt a connection to MicroSoft (TM) that looks at the database for updates provided by hardware manufacturers.
Check the Sound and Audio settings to make sure that the proper output device has been selected. Go to your Control Panel then Sound and Audio Devices, then the Audio tab. In that tab make sure that Default Sound Playback is set your sound card.
i havea acer laptop to and this works sometimes right click on the spearker icon botom right in task bar and then goto sound and then playback you should see your speakers or your sound device right click it then goto properties and goto advance tab and make sure the Hz is right and make sure the volume is turned up on it
Open the Control Panel. Open "Systems". Click on the "Hardware" tab. Click on the "Device Manager" button. In the device tree, expand "Sound, Video and Game controllers". Look for your audio device. Right click and select "Properties". In the box labeled "Device Status", does it say "This device is working properly", or does it say something else. There is a "Troubleshooter" button you can try if necessary.
If the above does not help, then right click on the audio device (still in the "device manager" tree) and select "Uninstall". Reboot the machine. It should scan for new devices and attempt to install it automatically.
