Question about Fujitsu Siemens LIFEBOOK N6110 PC Notebook

1 Answer

My sound is all slow and warbled when I play itunes, tv shows, dv

My sounds is just slow sounding... like a tape is being played really slow... I used to watch tv on my computer all the time but now I cant even understand what they are saying. I don't have anything else running on my computer or at least nothing open. Thoughts?

    I added to memory a few months ago so that should't be the problem. I also upgraded my internet speed to the fastest Comcast has. I can't seem to find any virus on my computer - I am wondering if it is a driver or something that needs updating? It did this with DVDs for about 18 months but is just recently doing it with any other sounds...

    It is not just tv... it is my itunes, or playing a cd or dvd on my computer... listening to radio, pandora or friends myspace music pages. The sound is fine for 10 seconds then sounds slow and warbled. I am trying to find if there is something wrong with my sound driver but I can't seem to see anything wrong with it.

    1) It was happening before I added the ram so I know it is not because of the new memory.

    2) I will try to restore my system - does that mean I will lose all my files on my computer?

    3) Audio Device Hardware Clock control - I am not sure what that is or how to find that out... is there an easy way to check this?

This case generally you may consider:
1) check your ram, clean the ram and slot, or change new ram
2) check your internet speed, cause sound slow if the speed down too much, or there are more than one conputer using your router at the same time
3) virus attact maybe damage your system files cause sound problem

    there are two way to watch TV from computer

    1) online TV using a utility and internet, the sounds slower period that only cause the internet speed, (the download and upload speed) go down a period. you need to make sure the speed showing at on line screen. you may change other utility or using MSN online video hearing what happen?

    2) if using TV card, it maybe something wrong with your card driver

    3) you may check system -hardware -manager see all sound driver no yellow mark is ok.

    so your sound slow at some different application, you need considering:

    1) you added a new memory a few month ago, sound got slow after ram added, you need check two ram should be same brand name and speed ( ns), you may take out each of them to test.

    2) sometimes windows system file damage could infect the basic device works. you may try restore your system.

    3) audio device hardware clock control circiute not stable it could cause this trouble, it is rare happen

    any question please feedback

    only one way you can do system restore, you may back up your improtant files out to other storage.

    all hardware trouble like clock control... is too tough for you..

When i play a movie and use my itunes the sound is choppy do you know what the poblem is because i cant hear anything do i possibly need a sound card ?

If you are viewing/listening on line and it does that but not when you play a DVD or tune from a disk, you have a slow internet connection problem. If it does it when playing a Video/Tune from a disk, download a newer audio driver from your manufacturers web site after downloading the latest Windows update.
Hope that helps.

Will not play DVD-freezes, skips, patchy sound. Will not play them. Troubleshooting says that device is working properly I downloaded an iTunes tv show-same problems. iTunes is installed on the computer so...


Try updating your DVD firmware (located at the support website from dell) and see if it fixes the problem. I believe, i-Tunes causes a conflict between your dvd rom drive. You can check it here at the microsoft website

Hope this helps.

Bad quality sound reproduction.

I would start by trying to replace the sound card driver - link.

If that doesn't work, it may be an issue with the speakers themselves.

I want to copy a cassette tape over to a cd.

You have to have a line in jack or a microphone jack to record sound, and really so you can control the sound quality it would be better to have a line in jack. Ive done some VHS to DVD and you have to be delicate with the sound....meaning that if you dont balance the sound out from the source and the sound coming in from the recording end(ie your laptop or pc), it can sound like 10 cats trying to sing Purple Rain.

It sounds like a hardware problem, but to be sure, trying playing different kinds of files and also use a different player. For example, if you're using Itunes, try Windows Media Player or playing a sound file from the internet such as a myspace page.
