SOURCE: I have a dell dimension 8250. I lost my sound, but

Either your soundcard driver has gotten corrupted or your soundcard has died. You can find both the driver & info on what card you have at www.dell.com. Click on the support link and you can either input your Dell Service Tag & get exact system info, or you can look it up using the system model #. The driver will be available for download. Try reinstalling an updated driver first. If that still doesn't work check your device manager to see if a soundcard is listed. If it is not then more than likely your card has died and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: people in any videos I download sound like chipmunks

I am having a similar problem on my other computer. My son installed an old microphone we had from a windows98 computer and suddenly audio stuff sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks. I tried our windows troubleshooter thing and set our accelleration to basic which helped Window media, but Youtube and whatever the other media thing that defaults when my son clicks on "my music' songs, are still distorted.

We tried unplugging and plugging in the mic again - a green 'realtek' box showed up. I thought about uninstalling it to see, but wondered if this is something that affects other parts of my computer.

Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those

Tip

To connect a music player or other audio device to your laptop


<br />If your laptop has a line-in jack, follow the instructions above for connecting a music player to a desktop computer. But to connect a music player or other audio device to most laptops, you'll have to plug it into a microphone jack. To do so, follow these steps:<br /><br />Click to open Sound. <br /><br />Click the Recording tab, click Microphone, and then click Properties.<br /><br />Click the Listen tab, click the Listen to this device check box, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Click the Levels tab and make sure the Mute button looks like this . If the button looks like this , click it to turn on sound for this connection, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Play some music or other sounds on your device to test the volume coming through your computer speakers. Select the slider under Microphone, drag it right or left to increase or decrease the volume of your audio device, and then click OK. You might also want to adjust the volume on your device.<br /><br />Note<br />If you hear noise coming out of your speakers, try reducing the volume on both the music player and in the Levels tab. The microphone jack is designed to receive sound from a microphone, which is different than sound coming from a music player

Sound plays on my system but i dont hear it at all.my windows


Let's start by checking
  1. Your speakers are plugged into the green connector on the computer
  2. Speakers have power, are turned on, and volume is up
  3. Check your "speaker" icon on your tray (lower right hand corner of desktop) - to make sure volume is up and not muted.

Hi.
Intermittent faults like this are very common in laptops. It is most likely cracked soldering on the mainboard. Sometimes it can be repaired, or it may need a board replacement. Unfortunately, paying the big money doesn't mean high quality these days. Just look at the failure rate of Apple laptops as a good example. A friend of mine has had 16 failures in the top spec Macbook.

I just bought a laptop do they have speakers built in? and if so where is the volume control I have a acer travelmate 200dx thanks Anne


volume control is normally located on the bottom right hand corner beside the clock, just double click on the speaker icon and you should be able to adjust the volume.
