    Check Device Manager to ensure that the hardware has a driver associated with it. (If you see any yellow and black Icons in device manager there is an issue with that particular device) If your drivers are showing up properly, ensure that your speakers are both plugged in and turned on then check your volume. I can tell you how to get to device manager if you let me know what operating system you're using.

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.

Im trying to watch a dvd and it wont work. The sound is there but the pitcure is full of colourful squares. Ive tried 5 dvds and 1 works the rest have all the same problem. I downloaded codec to see if...


I am having the same problem with my Windows Media Player, and so far no help till version 12 comes out - Seems the last update didn't go so well, and I don't want to reinstall my system.

But, I have found a free workaround - download VLC media player - the cross-platform media player and streaming server -
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

It plays the video DVD's beautifully (and about everything else)

I will keep looking - but that is all I can find for now.

Windows media player


To Update Your Windows Media player download the K-Lite codex which will come with its own player and its better than VLC player, the only advantage VLC has is that one can easily integrate subtitles of all formats, other than that K-Lite is better. Hope it helps, Goodluck =)

Hi! White Dove,
First things , first, check the cables in back of your computer, and see if cables are in the right order, green, pink or orange, and blue, and put the cable speaker in the green one, also check if you have the right drivers for your sound card, and is not place in mute on the task bar.
hope I can help!
