    Do you mean that when playing a dvd or video file that it is in fast forward? As for the usb ports, that could be your motherboard or bios or software. Did both problems start at the same time?

    Restart your computer, and press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP.

    Select "LOAD DEFAULT BIOS SETTINGS", then "SAVE AND EXIT".

    Does this help?

Knowing the exact cause of each individual issue is not as important as making them go away. I would venture to guess that you have tweaked with settings in various places. Without knowing the effect of changing settings, problems like this can occur. Your best and quickest bet would be to back up files such as pictures, documents and music. Then, if comfortable doing so, format your harddrive(s) and reinstall your operating system. There may be a better solution if a knowledgeable tech was there in person to test and troubleshoot your system.

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.

Which usb port do i plug my 3 in 1 printer in on my e machine?


It means you have a port that has 2.0 USB and your device is being placed on a 1.0 port, you would need to buy a 2.0 pci card with 2.0 USB port hookup to the motherboard and hook u the 2.0. you have an older computer that had the 2.0 USB installed on the board but not hooked up to any USB ports.

Could this be motherboard


Hello

This sounds like the USB ports on your system board have failed, one thing that you can do is go into the control panel

Start > control panel > System >> Hardware tab at the top> Device Manager button

See if you have any items with a disabled (red no icon) icon beside them, if not or you so no usb ports in here at all the board is probley failed.

Chipmunk speed


I would try to update the drivers for your sound card. If there is not an update try uninstalling the driver and re-installing it again. I had this problem with my speakers recently and this worked for me. Did not have the chipmunks sound though.

Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


1st -make sure that the USB cable is connected on the correct port of your printer - you might be plugging it on the ports of the telephone - you got 3 ports there - 2 for the telephone ports and 1 for the USB

2nd- check your service if print spooler and lx devices are started (lexbce or lxdcu) - if not.... start it
>start >run>type services.msc > enter

3rd- if still no go - uninstall your driver and download windows vista x64 printer driver on their website
