How to Fix Issue When All Sounds from Computer Sound Like Chipmunks


Chipmunk 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.

Her 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.

he 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 Sound Card

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

2) 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

4) 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 card load.

5) Test the sound card by playing an MP3, WAV, WMA, or other sound or by watching a video online.

The 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 sound card.

Firstly, you need to have the software required to perform this task. Now as is said, there is many applications which will enable you do convert the files, but i will be working with MP3 converter. This is a very "simple" application, but, it gets the job done. Click HERE to navigate to the download site.

You can choose any of the download links to download file.
After the download is completed and the application is installed, we can start.

Open the application, it should have a desktop icon.
This is a evaluated copy of the software, when the
day period have expired, just uninstall and reinstall the application.



Step 2:

Now you need to choose the file format you want to convert, in this case we want to convert wav to mp3, hence, we choose wav.

I cannot play music


There are several possible causes for this. Can you hear sound when your computer starts up or shuts down? If so, we can eliminate the sound card being faulty. What music application are you using? If it's a different music type than a .wav or .mp3 file, some applications encounter problems when trying to play various files. I suggest Media Monkey or iTunes. If either of these do not help, I would suggest checking the troubleshooting section of the manufacturer's website.
Thank you for using FixYa!

How do i record a cd using the computers sound card input jacks?


Download the _free_ "Audacity" software:

http://audacity.sourceforge.net

and install it.

This software lets you choose "line-in" (the socket on your sound-card) and lets you click "Record" and "Pause Recording" and "Save as WAV file".

Then, any CD-writing software can be used to "create audio CD", reading your WAV file(s).

CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning in Mp3 or WAv


most older car and home stereos will NOT play mp3's or wav files reguardless what kind of CD they are written on.
You need a newer stereo OR convert the mp3s to cd audio and then burn them to any recordable cd.. (audio cds can be read by any cd player but will take more space)

Professional voice recording on PC


Hi Stalks!

The good news is that making high quality recordings of a voice is a lot easier than say, of a band. In fact you do not need anything fancy to do this, just a good quality headset and microphone and some software.

I am going to assume that you are aware that you can use the media program in windows to record in WAV format. If you did not know that, simply Google WAV and record and you will find many articles that detail how to do that with a stock windows system.

I am also going to assume that you have an MP3 program and know how to use it. If you do not, well, there are free and trial versions (such as Soundforge) online, and you should download a few and try them out to see which one you like best. Almost all of these allow you to convert WAV to MP3.

The question of the headset and mic is a thorny one... You basically have two options but before I detail them, let me explain why you should use a headset with mic as opposed to just a mic alone.

When you use just a mic, background noise and your voice often create minor feedback sounds on the recording. That does not happen every time but it happens often enough due to the cheap nature of most PC mics that it is not worth trying to correct. A good quality headset and mic combination offers you an input device engineered for just what you want to do!

You can go two ways here - either a USB Headset and mic or one that uses the 5mm plugs on your computer soundcard.

I have used both, and I find that the USB type often give the best results but also happen to be more expensive. The reason for that is because they are not just a headset and mic but also have a USB soundcard integrated into them, hence the extra cost.

The less expensive option is a standard headset and mic that use the audio in and out ports on your soundcard. Over the years I have used a number of these and I find that Sennheiser makes the best unit for the price range.

You can find reasonably priced Sennheiser models at www.newegg.com and at your local superstores (ie Best Buy or Staples).

I hope that this helps you.
