Make sure the audio cable (maybe a USB cable) is connected.

Can't get the built in webcam to work on my computer


well....the Webcam has it's own connection to the PC, (typically a USB cable,) but the sound will come out of your speakers.....so if you have your speakers built into your monitor, then yes, there needs to be a 2nd cable from the monitor to the back of the PC. It should have a headphone jack at each end; there will be only one place on the monitor it will fit. On the back of the PC, there should be a small round pale-green connection to plug-in near the USB ports, (unless you have added your own separate sound card, then it should go there.)


If the video is not working, then check if it is plugged into the EXACT same USB port. You do not note what OS you're using....but usually I recommend a device be removed from the device manager, then rebooted several times before attempting to re-install it.

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.

Sound card aint workin


needs a sound device driver.
look in Device Manager and you will probably find a listing for OTHER or UNKNOWN devices. You can try to do an update driver and let it find it on its own but it probably would have if it could so you need to get the updated drivers from the mfg web site and install them.

Sound device not working


Please try to check the sound device status if its working properly thru right click My Computer icon > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager > (double click) Sound, Video & Game Controller OR System Device > System Speaker. also, take note of the Troubleshoot tab. If still it doesn't work, I think you have to reinstall the sound driver (from its motherboard software CD if it's built-in type). best regards

I have computor with Norcent LM 965WA monitor. Really liked the fact it had built in speakers. Worked great, now when I plug in the wire from compuitor to monitor, static but no sound. Any suggestions...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With your indulgence, pls verify that it is indeed the built-in speakers of the Norcent that is the issue. Temporarily plug in to the computer a pair of headphones or even an old external computer speakers. If sound, then the monitor speakers are verified, if likewise static, then it is a computer issue.

Let's try the easy one's first:
  • check/replace the cable;
  • try other ports to plug it in at the computer;
  • determine if the sound device/driver for Norcent shows up in your Device Manager;
  • determine if on Sound Property in COntrol Panel, the Norcent is selected as the default device;
  • you may want to update the firmware and driver available here.

Would appreciate a postback for any updates on any development(s) (or even the lack of any). Pls include what Operating System you are running and if the Norcent is using USB connectors or standard cables. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

My monitor will not work.


First of all, and I know this sounds ridiculous but I've even done it, make sure you connected the monitor cable to the new video card and not to the old 'on-board' video connection.
Next, do you get a (BIOS) start-up screen? If you don't, you most likely have a bad or incompatible video card. If you do, you need to boot into the 'BIOS' setup by holding down which ever 'F' key your particular computer calls for, (I don't know the make of your computer), and look for video or display options and choose the appropriate setting (PCI or PCI-Express), 'Onboard' is the factory default and will only work with the monitor cable plugged in the 'original' connector.
If you still can't get it to work you may have to put the connector back on the original, then go into 'Device Manager' (right click My Computer - then choose 'Properties', then 'Hardware' tab, then Device Manager), go down and open 'Display adapters', choose update driver on the new card's entry and then 'disable' the original device. turn off PC, reconnect the monitor to the new card and reboot. Good Luck!
