Right-click the desktop and select Personalization then click Sounds and change the Sound Scheme to non,that is for windows 7.

For XP Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel and then select "Sounds and Audio Devices"

Now click on the "Sounds" tab as shown and select the "Start Windows" sound also as shown.
Where it says "Windows XP Start up" change this to "None" and you will be OK

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window click on the Sounds (tab).
3. You will see a box with a list of items one being Asterisk.
4. Click on Asterisk, or any item in that box, and then click Test.
5. You should hear audio coming from your system.
6. If the clip was not long enough select another item, and then click Test.
7. Determine whether or not the distorted audio is present.

Configure the speakers

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window right-click your Speakers and select Configure Speakers.
3. Follow the on-screen setup, and Test the available configurations.
4. Identify whether or not one configuration appears to have less of an "echo" than others.
5. If the issue is resolved by modifying the configuration then you do not need to do anything further.




These fixes only work for windows and not any third party software.So if you have a sound card,you will have to use the app for it.

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.

My speakers are making voices and music and any sound that comes out of it a higher pitch. I mean the people sound like they are from alvin and the chipmunks! how do I fix this???


you will need to locate the volume button at the bottom right hand off desktop and change the volume settings, i cant say exactly witch setting to change because i don't know what software you are using. But something in those settings is causing this.
Any further questions please ask.
Correct? vote would be usefull.# Thanks.

Sound problem chipmunk voices on my acer aspire one. All of a sudden, every voice on my acer aspire laptop sounds like a chipmunk, or as though the news anchors have inhaled helium. How do I fix it??


Realtek sound has an "Audio Manager" control panel thing of sorts that can be opened by right-clicking a tray icon or using a shortcut in the control panel. The audio manager features a "pitch" setting that can get changed accidentally. All you need is to located that setting and return it to zero. Young children have a talent for finding this setting and changing it without letting the adults know that they have done so! Sound familiar perchance?

Alvan and The Chipmunks reside in my Gmax 2100 speakers!


If you have a sound card added on your motherboard, i suggest you uninstall the drivers, take off the sound card, attach it again and install the drivers.

If you connect your speakers through the motherboard itself, uninstall drivers and install them by searching C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers

Hope it helps!!!
