Re: audio on speakers are too fast
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....
You might have indicated what webpages do that to you (e.g. YouTube, blip.tv, forum.tv ....)

Try taking the audio out, (via the headphone socket or dedicated audio output socket), to a separate amplifier and speaker set. It will sound a great deal better. If it does not sound better and other games / audio CD's sound OK, then the audio track on the PC game is corrupted. Cheers
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
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.
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
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.
turn off the master sound utility programme (not mute option,like soundman,HD audiodeck etc ),if your problem solve turn on the utility and re arrange the eqalizer,also u can check with other speaker
