The other day something happened to my sound. When someone is talking they sound like chipmunks or something. I can't figure out how to fix this. I've been sitting here for about 3 hours messing with every single thing on the volume controle and It won't fix it. I can't find the bass and tremble. Thats the only thing that I haven't messed with. If you can help me please help me

1. Uninstall your sound card driver and reinstall it
2. Try sound card in another computer
3. Bash it into the wall because it's a POS

Try to stay away from #3, but if the first two don't help, we'll need some more information, like is it onboard or pci, what card, etc.

Welcome to the Forums!

What type of sound card do you have?

If its an Audigy, you might want to look for a pitch control. That speeds up / slows down playback.


Good Luck

in device manager, remove the sound card... and restart your computer, it should auto-detect it with original settings....

xtrmquestionx, sorry, I got your PM but I was repairing the transmission that my Mom tried to knock the pan off of.

(She took out one of those concrete blocks in a parking lot, warped the pan and was leaking BAD)

Glad you got your problem fixed.

Paul.
