I have a dell gx260 all my web video sound like chipmunks , media player works fine and i did all the troubleshoot test and it works just fine . The main problem is the web content all sound like chipmunks...


Hi.
This is usually caused by a missing codec, so the computer tries to compensate, and the results aren't always acceptable.

I would download a codec package called K-Lite codec pack, it has every codec needed.

Here is a link for it.

http://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm

Click on the direct download selection there on the page, and it will download an installer with all the codecs.

Run the program after it is done downloading, and then after running it, reboot your computer.

There is a selection for 64 bit on the page as well, in case you are running 64 bit operating system.

Once rebooted, your chipmunk audio problem should be resolved.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day.

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.
