If the pitch of the sound being played by your computer speakers has changed dramatically or songs and videos are playing faster or slower than they typically should be, the problem is with the sound speed on your computer. This could mean a hardware issue with your speakers or sound card or a software issue with the program that you're using to play a digital media file.
Double-check your speaker connections. If one of the audio cables that runs off of your speakers isn't plugged correctly into your computer, this could cause the audio coming from them to speed up or slow down. Make sure all cables are properly connected to their proper inputs and try to play your audio again. Update the driver for your computer's sound card. Go to the website of the company that made your sound card and look for your unit's product page. Under the "Support" section, click on the download link for the latest device driver. Once the file is on your computer, double-click on it to install it. Then restart your computer and try to play your audio again. Make sure you haven't accidentally sped up or slowed down the media file you are trying to play. Many digital media programs like iTunes or Windows Media Player have features that allow you to play a song or video in slow or fast motion. If this becomes accidentally selected, the audio will also be in slow or fast motion. Click "Stop" to stop your media file from playing and then click "Play" again to allow it to play normally. Restart your computer. This will free up system memory when your computer restarts. If your sound was playing too slow or too fast due to an error with not having enough memory to play properly, that error will now be fixed and your sound should return to normal speed. Hope this helps.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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
5) Test the sound card by playing an MP3, WAV, WMA, or other sound or
by watching a video online.
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
The motherboard or PCB (Primary Circuit Board) is responsible for connecting all computer devices to the microprocessor. It supplies devices with power and allows the computer to react with them, Devices that can be used by connecting to the motherboard are: Storage devices, sound cards, graphic cards and hard disks.
Devices or components that are needed to make the computer work as it should, are inbuilt within the motherboard or can be connected to it using a socket or port. Listed below are sockets and ports that are available on the motherboard for connecting devices and , what that they are capable of doing.
PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) slot: Supports peripherals like sound cards, DVD decoders, and graphic accelerators with 32 bits at 33Mhz capabilities. There are usually anywhere from 1 to 6 PCI slots available on the motherboard.
AGP (Accelerated Graphic Port): This provides fast bus speed connectivity along with fast access to the main memory. It is designed for video cards that demand higher bandwidth.
Chipset-North Bridge: An integrated circuit that has special duties.
CPU (Central Processing Unit) socket: A socket specifically for connecting your computer processor.
DIMM (Double Inline Memory Module) slots, SIMM (Single Inline Memory Module) and RIMM: Different types of memory (RAM) can be installed into these slots.
Motherboard Battery: A battery compartment, which stores the battery used for storing data such as system date and time, when you shut down your system.
IDE Connector: Responsible for connecting the IDE cord used for hard disks, CD drives, and DVD drives.
Firewire header (IEEE 1394): A serial bus used to exchange digital and audio data with high performance abilities.
The following listed items are parts that are built within the motherboard with specific connective uses such as keyboards, mouse, and printers.
PS/2 Connectors: Each motherboard usually has 2 PS/2 connectors for the keyboard and the mouse.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) port: There are usually a couple of these ports located on each motherboard used for connecting pen drives and external hard drives, like Ipods or Mp3 players.
Parallel or (LPT) port: The place used to connect scanners and printers.
Game Port: The port to connect all gaming devices for example, a joystick.
Sound Card Connectors: Plug in your microphone or speakers here.
Display Connector: Connecting your monitor to the motherboard.
COM (Communication) port: The port designed to connect your mouse and modem.
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.
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.
Go to your sound card settings under start settings control panel, select the real tek audio then in there there should be settings on how your sound comes out of your computer make sure that it is not set on some funky audio morphing setting. Someone must have played some pranks on you but yes its total fixable with a couple strokes of the mouse. ruldss2008
If you are using Media Player, open media player, click on View, then Enhancements, choose Play Speed Settings, move to the bottom left of the screen and select Normal, it will be between Slow and Fast. Let me know if this helps
Er, it's not your speakers of course, it is the software interpreting the video stream. Change the software (or your plugin; some botched Flash install, I imagine) to something with a little more smarts as to how to sync sound and video; many times the sound will be given with no rate info and it has to be interpreted from the video information rather than the default system behaviors, which is often to dump the sound buffer as fast as possible....
