Re: realtek audio device with sound effect menager
First thing is first, there should be 3 audio jack inputs. Line in, Line out and Mic. Make sure you are plugged into the Mic input.
Next if you are running windows XP check to make sure the Microphone volume is not muted and turned up. Do this by going to control panel --> Sound and Audio Devices --> volume tab --> Advanced button. The Microphone volume should be there if not select file --> properties and make sure microphone is checked. It should then appear on the volume controls.
This should take care of it if not what program are you using the mic with?

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
3 Ports on the side- Pink,Green,Black Pink Port is LineIn for an external device player jack
Green Port is LineIn for the Microphone jack Black Port is LineOut for Headset or External Speakers jack
Plug the Green jack on Headphone - into the Black Port on the laptop. b) Go to Control Panel and open - RealTek HD Audio manager On the top of Page are 3 Icons -
One Icon is labelled Speakers One is for Digital optics, one is for Mic, The Speakers Icon is misleading as it is also for Headphones (LineOut)
Select Speaker Icon and make it Default. Also tick Full Range - Front LR Ignore the 4 vertical Analog Icons on the right side.
You should now have Headphone sound if your volume is not Muted.

Try this, double click on the realtek HD audio icon on the system tray (orange speaker), click the effects tab, check if there's an active sound effect, change the effect to none, this should return the audio back to normal. Otherwise, either there's a problem with the speaker or on-board sound card.
Check the Sound and Audio settings to make sure that the proper output device has been selected. Go to your Control Panel then Sound and Audio Devices, then the Audio tab. In that tab make sure that Default Sound Playback is set your sound card.
Sometimes you may need to plug the jack into the back of the computer. It also depends what audio you're using. Digital and analogue don't mesh. I have to keep switching my Realtek between the both. Or another option may be to update your DirectX. Or your mic is busted, can you try it on another computer?
You are using the onboard sound, yes?
Go to control panel, then go to system, then to advanced tab, then to device manager. are there any yellow ?'s marks?
if so click on each one and fix according to the instructions it offers.
do you or have you had sound before?
Please update asap. there are many options available to you.
