Hi there,
I suggest that you check and ensure that the correct playback and recording device is selected in the sound properties of your system. Please refer to the steps below as a reference.
1. Click on Start > Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel click on classic view, located at the side bar.
3. Next double click on ‘Sound’ and go to ‘Playback’ tab.
4. Please ensure that under ‘Playback’ tab; the headset is selected as default device.
5. Next go to ‘Recording’ tab and ensure that the microphone of the headset is selected as default device.
6. Now, try to take a test recording using Sound recorder.
7. Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Sound recorder
8. Take a test recording with Sound recording using the microphone of the webcam. Then playback the recording and check whether it was recorded clearly.

My sound is coming out sounding like the chipmunks where can I change it

This is caused by the 'Chipmunk' virus.

Sounds like Alvin.


Suggest you reinstall the Audio (Sound) drivers.
DO NOT suggest you use Device Manager, and save yourself the trouble.
Suggest you download from Samsung Support, AND install; instead.

[Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.
The audio chipset is the device, I do not know what the O/S is ]

Problem is I do Not know what O/S you are using.
Operating System.
I assume it to be a version of Windows, though.

Also going along with the problem title of -
Samsung NP-RV515-AO1US Notebook PC,

Under the bold black subheading - Downloads, click on the blue -
See All Downloads

Now click on the blue Driver heading.
[ Manuals / Driver / Software / Firmware ]

There are 3 Audio drivers listed.
All 3 are in blue, and start with -
Sound (Audio) (Driver)

One is for Windows XP.

Two are for Windows 7, and either 32-bit, or 64-bit.
They are BOTH the same Version (ver., so I think this is a Samsung mistake. Double-listing of the same audio driver file.

To the far right on each file, you will see ZIP in white letters, and in a blue rectangular 'box'.
This means it is a Zip file.

A Zip file is used to send large amounts of information more easily.
It is a Compressed file, and needs to be uncompressed after receiving, or can be said as 'unzipped'.

Using the audio driver file for Windows XP for an example;

After you click on the blue rectangle with ZIP in it, a small window pops up -
Global Download Center

Click on the blue rectangle with SEND in it.
Takes a few seconds then a small window will pop up on the right -
(Took about 15 seconds)
Opening Sound_WXP_5.10.0.6318.ZIP

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of -
Save File.
If not; click in the empty circle to the left of Save File.
Now go below in the window, and click on OK.

A small download window will come up on the left.
Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

To the left of the next window click on - Extract all files.
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.

If not instructed to restart your computer, do so.

[Windows XP:
Click on Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart.
Windows Vista / Windows 7:
Click on the Windows logo button (Start), then on Restart ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

It maybe that the drivers have become corrupt.
