Preferred Solution: Computer playing all sounds too fast- sounds like ths chipmunks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sound from the on board ac97 on a Gigabyte motherboard running windows XP was alright until I was using Winamp to convert CD's to MP3's. Then the Chipmunks took over. The Winamp was delated and reinstalled with no change to the sound. It sounds the same whether using a CD in the CD player or running a file off the hard drive. It sounds like this whether I am using Winamp, Media Player or Real Player. There must be a setting somewhere that needs to be reset to the default. Any help would be appriciated.

HELLO!!
This is my second problem with my computer - audio&video. Soon after installing WinXP I noticed that *.wav sounds (for example standard windows clicks and messangers sounds) are sometimes good(I open 2 or 3 folders) and then they are delayed (I click to open another folder, click is heard after 2-3sec delay). MP3 files such as music are played good. Ive got standard built in mobo audio card VIA AC'97.
Second thing is about movies, when I download some short ones from internet (e.g. 30sec) which are avi or mpg, or wmv. I play one of them and everything is played too fast (i think about 2x). After several reopening the file or player everything is correct. What should I do about it?? I think its about codecs. Which one you prefer?? Should I install some megapack or what??

I appretiate every word of help C U
 

A:Delayed sounds & too fast video playing

Hi

First uninstall any codec packs you have installed and then update WMP, then install this codec pack.

Two days ago, I was deleting unused programs from my computer in an attempt to speed it up. Unfortunately I may have deleted something important because now all sounds from the computer seem like chipmunks are either speaking or singing.

This applies to the speaker, headphones, CDs, and the internet (youtube and hulu are what I've checked).

My sound card states that it is okay but obviously something is wrong.

I'm working with an outdated computer:
Windows 2000
Dell OptiPlex GX240
Sound Card is either Unimodem Full-Duplex Audio Device or Intel 82801BA/BAM AC '97 Audio Controller

I believe I deleted a program called "SoundMax" or "MaxSound" (something to that effect) - could this be the problem? If not, how can this be solved?

I'm not comfortable with deleted/rebooting sound cards unless I know all the minute details, where I can find/downlaod replacements and 85% certainty that they will word.

Please help me all you Obi-Wan Kenobis, you might be my only hope. And if you need anymore info, I can certainly try to get that to you.

I just installed Vista on this PC, and after getting everything that I need downloaded and installed, it plays 2 sounds randomly, 1 of which I can't figure out.

The first sound it plays is the sound from AIM when you send an instant message to someone (imsend.wav). The second sound sounds like it's part of some rock music track, about 5 beats long. It's kind of hard to explain, but they both just play whenever they feel like it.

The AIM sound plays regardless of AIM being open or not, and the 2nd sound seems to play any time as well.

I've scanned for viruses/spyware with Spybot, Windows Defender, and AVG, and nothing ever turned up. This is an HJT log (I'm running vista, and it seemed to give me a few errors when scanning the PC).

Reinstallation of Vista isn't an option I'm willing to consider at this time. This also happened on my old PC with XP Media Center.

Why is my computer making playing these sounds when...?

Anyone ever heard of the old computer game "Commander Keen"? If you're really familiar with it, do you remember the sounds that played during certain actions during the game? I.e. shooting your gun, entering a new level, etc.

Well, one day when I was really bored a while back, I downloaded the game just to see how well I remembered it all.

I uninstalled it forever ago, but sometimes my computer still makes a couple of the sounds from it. I have a dell laptop, and with that I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard. now, whenever I power on my computer and open windows, the first time I press a key such as alt, tab or ctrl (on my laptop keyboard only) it plays a couple of those sounds. And doesn't do it again until I reboot my computer and press one of those keys again.

Also, it only plays on my laptop speakers even though I have my Logitech Z-5300 THX 5.1 Speakers hooked up and on. All of my other sounds (including warning and system sounds) play over those.

Even though it wouldn't be something you could set in your Sounds and Audio Devices Properties, I checked there anyways and everything is at its default sound. Iíve never changed any of those.

Does anyone have any idea what the heck is causing this?
 

A:Solved: why is my computer making playing these sounds when...

WOW "Commander Keen"! I have not hear about it in years.

When uninstalling a program many leave peices of themselves behind. So I recommend you try a System Restore selecting a date before you installed it. Otherwise you are going to have to search the Windows Registry and delete any forgotten peice, which is hard and dangerous to do.

Every time I try to play music in Windows Media Player no sound comes out of my speakers. I'm not sure if its just Media Player, but I'm fairly sure it's not just Media Player.

When this first started, simply turning the volume up a notch made sound come out. But the sound would stop after a minute or so. Also, it has been making my computer freeze up frequently. I've tried playing music on websites like playlist.com and my computer locks up.

This just started happening today. I looked for hardware conflicts and found none. The speakers work fine. I believe it must be some sort of Malware.

Hey guys, I recently had my computer crash on me for the first time in a long time. After it rebooted, I noticed that random audio was playing in the background. It almost sounds like a bunch of pop-up ads are open at once, but there are none open on my computer. In my volume mixer, the sound source is listed as "Host Process for Windows Services."
 
I have been trying to fix this on my own, but I have been unsuccessful. So far I have tried scanning with Malwarebytes/Spybot Search and Destroy, used CCleaner, used TDSSKiller and Rkill, and did a Combofix scan. Even after using all of those tools, the sounds still play, and the computer crashes after a random amount of time. Sometimes the crash happens after only a few minutes, and sometimes it happens after a couple hours. I would also like to note that the Malwarebytes and Spybot scans came up clean. I have my combofix log but I think I'm not supposed to post it here.
 
I would appreciate any help/advice that you have for me.
 
Thanks.

A:Sounds playing in background with nothing open, computer crashes every 2 hours

Hi,
 
Since you have run Combofix, please follow these instructions:
 
Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.
Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.
If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members. xXToffeeXx~

Every other sound like playing music and running YouTube videos work fine. Even when I turn on my laptop I hear the whole computer startup sound, but I don't hear the login one. I don't understand the problem. I went into personilazation and went to Windows Sounds, but when I select one and click "Play" I don't hear anything. I tried the other Sound Themes and they don't work either. I ran the Fix It program for Audio, and it didn't find anything wrong.

    If you have the Default Audio Playback Device set as HDMI then you should be getting sound only from HDMI. Sounds like that is not happening.

    You should have the NVDIA High Definition Audio and the regular PC audio (whatever that is) shown in the Device Manager, Sounds section. If you do not have NVIDIA High Defintion Audio, or only the generic Windows installed "high Definition audio driver (codec) shown for the HDMI audio that could be the problem.

    Uninstall the Video Card, in the Device Manager (do not uninstall the drivers) then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the Video Card. See if this corrects the problem. If not, install or reinstall the latest NVIDIA driver.

    try uninstalling your sound card from your device manager and check if your card is seated properly in the slot. re-install and boot.

    Just set up my new Dell 660 desktop and noticed that with Windows Default sounds
    that the "navigation compete" sound effect and some others don't seem to be working.
    That one sound I mention is the familiar sound you get when using IE and clicking
    the mouse to navigate around the web pages but a few others are not working either.
    Is it possible that in 8.1 MS has eliminated those sounds?

    I went to browse the .wav files and don't see that sound listed.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    A few weeks ago my sound went away. I don't know why it did...so I came here and followed some instructions, I don't know which part of the instructions restored it, but it's back. I have sound on my online games (zone.net) and sound for my daughter's barbie.com but no sound when anyone sends me a sound bite or e-card. I went to e-cards and I don't have sound when I do it either. Everything "looks" ok on the computer.....volume for Midi player is up, RealPlayer is installed....Anything else I can check? (I don't recall making any changes.)

    One other thing, which has nothing to do with the above...but I have unchecked AIM from my start (msconfig) but when I have an "emergency" shut down it comes back? Any help for this?

    Hello,

    I'm not sure if the problem is with Windows or my sound card so I posted here. A few sound related things on my machine have gone strange:

    - The volume icon has disappeared and will not come back. In the taskbar "notification area" "customization" box it is listed as a past item, rather than a current item. I have selected "always show" but it doesn't show. I can still get to it via the control panel.

    - No windows sounds are playing (eg startup jingle, dings, etc). I have played around with the "sounds" box in "sounds and audio devices", to no avail. At the bottom of this box there is a little "play" button so you can play sounds that you have selected - this is greyed out and does not work.

    - There is no sound in Flash movies, which is how I discovered the problem.

    mp3s and wavs play fine, as do movie files like divx and avi. That's why I think it's a problem with Windows and not my sound card.

    I am running SP2 on a A64 machine with 1Gb of RAM so performance shouldn't be an issue, and in fact it wasn't because everything was working fine a couple of days ago. I have tried uninstalling everything I installed before the problem occurred. I have reinstalled the Flash player. I have checked the settings in Administrative tools / Services / Windows Audio, which was a fix I found somewhere. Nothing works.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    I used to have an older, HP Pavillion (don't ask me which one I have no idea) and the headphones worked great on that. On my current computer, however, the only sound that will go through the headphones are the test sounds. So I plug them into the speaker jack in the back, and no sound whatsoever. I go onto the audo devices panel and there are three devices on there. There is "Digital Output (S/PDIF)", "Communication Headphones", and "Speakers/Headphones". My headphones are still plugged into the speaker jack in the back and I disable the Digital Output device. The headphones start working, but the volume is really low, even on 100% power. I plug them into the heaphone jack on the front of the case and they still aren't working. I notice that all three devices are run by the same audio controller, IDT High Definition Audio CODEC. I then go onto the device manager to see if there are any driver updates that I need to install and I notice that there is another audio controller listed; AMD High Definition Audio Device. For whatever reason, this controller is disabled and when I go onto the properties it does not allow me to enable it (the enable button is grayed out).

    A:No sounds when playing Flv Videos

    What player are you using. Suggest you uninstall the codec pack, then try the following.

    1) Use VLC. VLC will play flv out of the box, no extra software needed.

    2) If you want to play them in MPC, you'll need FFDShow.

    3) If you want to play them in WMP, then in addition to FFDShow, you'll need an FLV splitter. You can download Gabest.

    I would suggest you first diagnose your PC audio, then if everything is alright, try VLC. After that you can try out the other options.
