    Can you tell if the sound card has been added to the computer or if this is the audio on the motherboard?

Turn your computer off. Wait 30 seconds and turn it back on. Check the BIOS setup at the beginning of the computer being turned on and make sure the audio is enabled.

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.

Just to make sure desktops almost never have built in speakers.
1. Check that your speakers work. Try them with an MP3 player or other device to make sure they work.
2. Check that the speaker is plugged in the right socket. Play something on computer and switch around the plug.
3. In windows press START->Control Panel->System->Device manager.
Right click on Sound device and write down the make (Company and a model number).
4a. Google their website and go to support->downloads/drivers and download the appropriate driver.
4b. If its an INTEL sound device you might have to look up the motherboard as it might be bundled with the motherboard driver.

I reinstalled Windows Xp pro when i upgraded my hard drive. Now, in sounds and audio devices it says i have no device. and there are no sounds


u need to install sound drivers from the CD that came with your PC
if u have a custom built PC then use the motherboard CD for the sound card installation....
if all efforts fail the the best solution for the time is
use a USB Sound Card adaptor, buy in Ebay for 1$, attach it to the USB port and connect the speaker sound oput jack in that adaptor...that will buy some time to solve ur sound card issue...
i too had the same issue and till date i am on my USB sound card system...i am Ok with it....

Audio device shows as corrupted. How can i install a new one?


Right Click on My Computer go to Properties in the Grey box select the Hardware Tab. Click on Device Manager In the Catagory Sound Video and Game Controllers expand the list. Uninstall you sound card. If the drivers are present in the Windows Library then when you reboot you computer it should reinstall your audio controller. If it does not then you will need to reinstall the audio controller from the Disks that came with youe computer. On the off chance that you do not have the disks for your PC you can try to go to the Windows Update site and ther may be a diver there for your PC's audio controll under optional downloads. You will need to pick the Custom Install button rather than the Express Install button on the page.

Below is a site for Windows Updates
