My sound is real funny like chipmunk sounds


If the pitch of the sound being played by your computer speakers has changed dramatically or songs and videos are playing faster or slower than they typically should be, the problem is with the sound speed on your computer. This could mean a hardware issue with your speakers or sound card or a software issue with the program that you're using to play a digital media file.

Double-check your speaker connections. If one of the audio cables that runs off of your speakers isn't plugged correctly into your computer, this could cause the audio coming from them to speed up or slow down. Make sure all cables are properly connected to their proper inputs and try to play your audio again. Update the driver for your computer's sound card. Go to the website of the company that made your sound card and look for your unit's product page. Under the "Support" section, click on the download link for the latest device driver. Once the file is on your computer, double-click on it to install it. Then restart your computer and try to play your audio again. Make sure you haven't accidentally sped up or slowed down the media file you are trying to play. Many digital media programs like iTunes or Windows Media Player have features that allow you to play a song or video in slow or fast motion. If this becomes accidentally selected, the audio will also be in slow or fast motion. Click "Stop" to stop your media file from playing and then click "Play" again to allow it to play normally. Restart your computer. This will free up system memory when your computer restarts. If your sound was playing too slow or too fast due to an error with not having enough memory to play properly, that error will now be fixed and your sound should return to normal speed. Hope this helps.

I am hooked up via VGA and have the lime green cable hooked up to my tv and the back of my computer but still no sound.


It sounds like you plugged into the TV headphone jack. Unplug it on the TV end so you do not damage anything.

You need to get a mini-DIN to RCA stereo connector. It will have a connector that fits your PC on one end in the lime green audio jack(mini-DIN), and the other end will have two RCA connectors- one white (left) and one red (right) that plug into AUDIO IN on your set. Make sure you follow your TV manual or menu as to making sure the right audio input is used with VGA, and it should work correctly.

Acer AX1700-U3700A with variable Audio on HDMI


Your problem isnt in your PC, it's because you chose the onboard sound to listen to music etc, which is normal. Unfortunately, you need to choose the HDMI Audio output if you want sound on your TV FROM the HDMI cable. Right click the sound icon located to the lower right side of your screen and choose (adjust audio properties). Now go to the audio tab and click the output device window and choose your HDMI audio output, whatever it may be called. Just pick the one that wasn't selected when you opened it and click ok or apply. Now all audio output is controlled by your Video card lol. Crazy aint it?

there is no unlock, safe mode allows you to correct the problem.

  • You do not hear sound from the computer's speakers or headphones.
  • A sound seems to be played, but you do not hear anything.
  • A sound is played, but it stops suddenly.

  • The sound is distorted or scratchy.
  • The computer stops responding when a sound is played.
  • The computer restarts when a sound is played.

I have the headset with the jack hook up not usb and I would like to know how to get music to come through my computer speakers while I'm talking on my headset and hear the person I'm talking to through my...


You are using one sound device at a time, this is not possible, if you like to be able to hear from headset and play music on your pc at a time, you must have a USB Amplifier and Headset (eg: GN Netcom, Avaya, etc...)

first you must set your Media Player's Option to Devices>Speakers>Audio device to use> DirectSound of your PC.

The other one is your are using a program to talk to other people, that program also has a feature to select the Audio devices to use, you must select that other device like my example above.

Hope this is clear enough to help you out.

My pc plays audio when i start up , cannot find the source of the audio , can you help


Depends on what (and how ) it's playing. Check in the Start folder for anything out of the ordinary: media players, different files, anything that shouldn't be there.
Otherwise maybe has modified the music Windows plays when it starts - check that into Control Panel - Sounds - System sounds - or whatever is called in yours.

I bought a connector that you would use for an ipod but, I still have no sound. On the back of my Vizio TV...where the RGB cable is hooked up, there is a small headphone size jack there. Is that the one...


Clarifying...

You are trying to play audio from the TV through your computer?

You need an adapter cable that has an 1/8" stereo phone plug on one end, and two RCA male jacks on the other end.

The RCA connectors are to be plugged into your RV using the AUDIO OUT jacks (usually red/white) and the small plug goes into the auxiliary or line in jack on the back of your computer.

Then, Double-Click on the volume icon in the system tray (this should bring up the system mixer), unmute the line in sound if it is not already and run the "slider" control for that input up about half way.

then, Tune the TV to whatever channel or input you wish and adjust the volume level on your computer to a comfortable listening level.

Rob

ps. Some TVs don't use fixed level audio outputs, and the volume will vary as you run the volume up/down on the TV, too...

No audio


sounds like the Balance on the volume control is set to one extreme. Put it in middle. Use Control Panel - Audio - Play settings
