It is possible that a virus can do that. Please make sure your Windows is updated by going to Start-->Help and Support, then in the Pick a Task section click "Keep your computer up-to-date with Windows Update"

Gateway dx4840-11e. During video can hear music but not actor voices. What to do?


do you have the sound set to surrond sound? What it sounds like is that it is trying to play through surrond speakers but you dont have them, which is why you can hear the music and not the actors voices. click with the right mouse button on the speaker in the bottom right of your screen, then click on sounds , now click on the playback tab in the sound window, click on the sound device shown and then click configure, choose stereo and choose two speakers. Continue to the end then try to play the video and see if you can now hear the voices. If you cant then you maybe missing codecs needed to play the audio correctly. Please state if this is a movie you have downloaded or a dvd film on disc etc

REAR SPEAKER JACK AND SPEAKERS CRACKLING SOUND


First of all test your speakers with another source such as a portable CD player if the sound comes then there is a problem with speakers

Then check the connectors of the speakers and after checking the connectors try changing the cables of the speakers.

After checking the connectors and cables now re-seat your sound card and move it to a different pci slot

Farthest away from PSU It might be possible that once the load on the PSU gets
higher its interference field gets larger!

Also note that if there is a cell phone near your speakers or the sound card? Any device
that reaches a certain frequency will cause a constant clicking noise.

Hope the above information helps you.
Thanks.

Our Dell computer speakers work but the sound is not normal voices. It's like the voices are animated


It is possible that a setting on your soundcard has the pitch of the voices higher than normal or an effect is turned on that isnt required. Have you tried plugging the speakers into another source to see if it sounds the same?

My pc can't find my speaker


You probably haven't loaded the sound driver yet.
To find out goto control panel, then system, then devices
You might see a ? next to one or more devices
If so, the next step will depend on if you have the driver on cd, or you will have to download it.

I cannot find the "video and voice set up" in yahoo messenger that's why i cannot use my cyberlinkyoucam as my webcam


Yahoo! Messenger offers voice services, such as PC-to-PC, PC-to-cell or PC-to-landline calling. You can also participate in chat rooms and use the voice chat feature instead of typing. However, slow connection speeds or improper settings can interfere with voice activation in Yahoo! Messenger.


Instructions
  1. Step 1 Reduce echoes by using a headset instead of speakers and a microphone. Place the microphone farther away from the speakers, if possible. Adjust the volume of the speakers and the microphone.
  2. Step 2 Verify your Internet connection speed if your friend's voice sounds choppy. The computer modem speed must be 56K or higher in order to send voices or sounds.
  3. Step 3 Go to "Actions" and "Call Setup" in Yahoo! Messenger if you can't hear, or your friend can't hear you. Test the sound by following the instructions that proceed call setup.
  4. Step 4 Click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your computer screen if you want to test the sound manually. Uncheck "Mute," if necessary, and make sure sound levels are above 50 percent.
  5. Step 5 Pick "Preferences" in Yahoo! Messenger if you have trouble with connecting to the voice server. Choose "Connection," then select "No Proxies." Log in to Messenger again to check the voice server.

I have brought some speekers i do not have any sound cuming from them


Power on the speakers, rotate the volume knob (if present) to full. Then take the input wire (Which connects to the PC's green audio socket) touch at the end of the jack. Surely some voice will come from the speakers. If some buzz noise comes out from the speaker, the speakers are ok. reply for the other possibilities.
