Some audio cards have special functions. Check the control panel for an icon that may relate -- for example, Creative Labs adds an "Audio HQ" icon to the control panel. One of the icons that Audio HQ presents is called "EAX Control Panel". There it is possible to set all sorts of audio effects, including reverb (echo).

Even if you do not have a Creative Labs card, you may still have "EAX" or something similar. Poke around the control panel to see if there is anything that looks like it might have something to do with audio.

Wont start up and high pitch beep


The beeping is from the motherboard most likely. Sounds like you have some kind of virus. You may be able to access safe mode by holding alt+f4 when start-up but other then that I would take your PC in to get checked out.

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.

High pitch screeching on my pc cannot fix thru speakers check ok


Unusual noises coming from your computer can mean anything from serious trouble to no problems at all. The uncertainty, together with the expense of computer hardware components -- not to mention the risk of losing data and being without your computer -- make it important for you to investigate any unusual sounds as soon as they come to your attention.

Normal Sounds
Not every high-pitched sound coming from your computer suggests a problem. Computers also generate a variety of sounds as part of their normal operation. In particular, anything that spins can easily make noise. This includes cooling fans and the hard drive. In the case of fans, their sound sometimes grows louder when the computer works harder because it needs to run the fans at a faster speed in order to dissipate the extra heat from the higher level of operation. You probably don't need to concern yourself with an unknown high-pitched sound unless you have used the computer for a while and the sound is new. b> Capacitors Capacitors sometimes make a high-pitched buzzing sound, either when under a high load or when defective. In the latter case, faulty construction can cause gas to build up inside the capacitor, which then vents under pressure and sometimes creates an audible noise. Defective capacitors can damage or destroy other hardware. f you suspect a bad capacitor, or don't know what else it might be, give your computer an inspection. b> Capacitors Inspection b> Your computer has capacitors all over it, including on the motherboard and on nearly everything that plugs into the motherboard, so tracking down a bad capacitor can take some time -- especially if you don't know whether a capacitor is actually causing the problem. Many capacitors look like tiny little soda cans and smaller ones look like squat cylinders. Failed capacitors usually bulge out at the top or have crusty residue around them. Be sure to check not just the motherboard but also any other hardware components with visible capacitors on them. If you find a bad capacitor, keep looking in case you find more. Afterward, don't use your computer again until you repair or replace the faulty hardware. Fans b> The bearings and motors on fans sometimes go bad. If this happens then the fan may begin to whine, whether or not it stops working. If feasible, open the side panel of your computer tower with the system running and try to pinpoint the exact source of the sound. If you can determine that the noise is coming from a fan, power down the computer and replace that fan. b> Power Supply Unit b> Power supply units sometimes make a high-pitched whining or droning sound; it can happen continuously, when you perform certain tasks on the computer or when you take the power load high enough. This can happen either because of cheap construction or because the unit is too close to maximum capacity. As you would do to check the fans, open the side panel while the computer is running and put your ear up to the PSU. If this is where the noise is coming from, replace the unit with a high-quality model and upgrade to a higher power output if you need to do so. Hope this helps.

I was messing with the sound settings and now every sound or music that comes out of the speakers sound like chipmunks (high pitch voice) even the even sounds weird.. And I dont remember or know how to fix...


Right-click the desktop and select Personalization then click Sounds and change the Sound Scheme to non,that is for windows 7.

For XP Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel and then select "Sounds and Audio Devices"

Now click on the "Sounds" tab as shown and select the "Start Windows" sound also as shown.
Where it says "Windows XP Start up" change this to "None" and you will be OK

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window click on the Sounds (tab).
3. You will see a box with a list of items one being Asterisk.
4. Click on Asterisk, or any item in that box, and then click Test.
5. You should hear audio coming from your system.
6. If the clip was not long enough select another item, and then click Test.
7. Determine whether or not the distorted audio is present.

Configure the speakers

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window right-click your Speakers and select Configure Speakers.
3. Follow the on-screen setup, and Test the available configurations.
4. Identify whether or not one configuration appears to have less of an "echo" than others.
5. If the issue is resolved by modifying the configuration then you do not need to do anything further.




These fixes only work for windows and not any third party software.So if you have a sound card,you will have to use the app for it.
