Why doesn't my internal "realtek" sound system have any sound?


Check that the speaker cable is plugged into the GREEN ringed "Speaker" jack (for a normal stereo sound set up). Check that the speaker isn't muted in system tray. Right click the speaker in the system tray. Click Volume Control Options and make sure you have the analog Realtek Audio selected - not any HDMI or Digital output. Open "Control Panel" in Windows. Open "Device Manager" found in the "Hardware and Sound" heading. Locate "Sound, Video.." Make sure there is no small icon over it to indicate that there is a problem. If there is, click the triangle to the left and open "Realtek.." Right click it and select properties. Click the Driver tab and then "Uninstall" If an option to remove files is presented - select it, too. Click OK to uninstall. Reboot if prompted. Allow Windows to find the "new" Realtek hardware and download drivers from Live Update. Sound should be restored. Make sure that you have selected Analog

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.

Is it possible to get sound trough HDMI cable on an Acer Aspire L5100?


Sure, it may just not be enabled. On Windows PCs, you may have to go to the Control Panel and go to the SOUND tab. There you may find that you have to choose between the default analog sound out and the digital sound output thru the HDMI cable. If your system has an audio manager application (Realtek for example, uses one), you can select the digital output there as well. It may even be easier to do there.
