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

Are you sure that the soundcard supports 5.1 on your laptop?

Audio will play on internal speakers only


Are you plugging the external speakers into the right port? Try plugging them into the Headphone port if there is no external speaker port. Make sure you have the external speakers turned on and the volume turned up. Also make sure you have the software in the computer to have the volume turned up and not muted. Check the audio sound properties and make sure the volume is turned up and not on mute.

Click Start/Control Panel then look for Audio or Sound and check the volume.

You can also click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time to adjust the volume and check for mute.

Volume buttons on my toshiba laptop is not working


There are other ways to adjust the volume.

Right click on the megaphone located at the bottom right near the time. You can adjust the volume there.

Look on your keyboard and normally you can Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit one of the 3 keys with the megaphone that adjusts the volume (1 key increases the volume, 1 key decreases the volume and 1 key mutes the volume).

You can adjust the volume in the Control Panel's audio or sound properties. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound or Audio.

I change OS from vista to xp now iam not able to play audio or video files. Message says sound driver either missing or used by another program. No volume logo is seen in taskbar. plz help


Hi Thanks for your question
You need to get your Audio drivers in order to do this:
1. Put your manufacturers name in google search engine 2. Choose a home page of producer of your laptop 3. Once your in there choose support/download section 4. It should normally take you through the process of finding certain model of device 5. Once you find drivers for your laptop download Audio and install 6. Restart your computer and everything should be back to normal
I hope this helps

No sound


Check the speaker icon in the taskbar at the bottom, if there is an X then it is muted. Right click to unmute.

Also as it is a laptop there may be a mute button on the keys using the function button and a typical mute icon on a key or even a seperate button altogether.

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.

Sound


Try this....

Locate the volume knob (toshiba laptops normally has this volume know located on the side of the laptop). Make sure it turned on. and see what happens. Even if the sound icon in the taskbar is turned up but if this knob is not then there would be no sound at all. I am assuming that your drivers are good since you said in the device manager that all are working properly.

hope i was able to help
