Skype sounds like a robot!

Q: Skype sounds like a robot!

My skype sounds like a robot any time I use it. I have tried donloading it from the website, using the skype video app already on my computer and it still doesnt work. Everything else auditory works fine, video, music, etc. But anytime I try to skype it sounds like a robot is talking, lags and is very annoying. I know others are having this problem too but I can't find a solution. I know internet connection is usually the problem but I have tried it right next to the router and it still doesn't work. I then use the app on my phone and it works fine but its really frustrating to have to do that when I just bought this computer not even a month ago. Please help!

Preferred Solution: Skype sounds like a robot!

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.)

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio laptop and recently whenever I use YouTube, Spotify, Netflix, stream or play audio/visual content anywhere the sound freezes and makes a robot noise constantly.

I am a dummy with computers and technical stuff but from what I have read on the web regarding this matter it could have been something to do with drivers, too much stuff on the hard drive, flash and/or java needing updating etc..

I have done all of these things (I think) and it still hasn't done anything! Could someone plleeassee advise me what I need to do to sort this out.

Also, my fan is very hot and sounds like a vacuum cleaner (I have tried cleaning it, I think I need a new fan) but could this be affecting anything?

Thanks all

edit: I use latest internet explorer, and sometimes chrome but it is the same on both of the browsers, and besides it happens with spotify which is downloaded?

A:Audio sounds like a robot on everything, please help!!

It does sound like something having to do with your sound card drivers. I would go into the device manager which is in the system tab of the control panel and completely uninstall the sound card and any other related components; reboot; then let windows hopefully re-detect and reinstall the sound card and its associated drivers.If you need more info on anything just ask.

Hi, recently my skype has started to pick all sounds from my pc eg my music, games, youtube vids and movies.

I have been through all the settings i have stereo mix turned off and my mic is the only one one, I have unplugged my mic as well too see if it was audio leak from my head phones, but it was picking up sound still form the pc, it seem like the speaker part of my audio is tied to my mic.

i have uninstalled and reinstalled my audio drivers, made sure there all up to date I made sure Skype and windows 7 was up to date as well

Bellow are some images of how things are setup if any other pictures are needed just ask.
I spent all day trying to get it to stop picking up my sound, I thought of reinstalling windows at one point

ive tried just about everything to stop people on skype from hearing game sounds. im using a head set and if i turn the volume down all the way they can still hear it loud and clear. ive tried reinstalling skype and my sound card drivers and rerolling to an older version of the sound driver and nothing works. ive got the windows audio settings as follows: microphone and speakers are set as default and all other things in the list are disabled. i have microphone boost on but that does not do anything. Under communications Do Nothing or Mute all others sounds does nothing also so i dont know what else to do!

I have 2.1 altec lansing speakers plugged into my compaq presario cq61.

when skype plays sounds such as incoming call or new message it reverts all sound back to the internal speakers.

e.g. if i am playing music over the external speakers when i receive a skype call the music and the ringing will play over the internal speakers and when the ringing stops the music goes back to the external speakers.

been looking online for a fix for a few days now, it seems a lot of HP laptops are also affected so i think its a problem only affecting HP/compaq.

thanks, alex

A:Skype sounds coming out wrong speakers

I haven't tried External speakers on my laptop, but have you set the prefered order of output devices under Tools | Options | Audio settings | Show Advanced Options?
I think if the internal speakers are listed first, it will use them even if the externals are connected.

I don't think you can separate it from the music though as the ringtones are wav files, but should be able to keep it from switching to the internal.

I don't have a set of speakers handy to test with though, so I may be wrong.

Hi,

I've been reading on this topic for days now and not getting anywhere.

I have SoundMax and want only voice communication to go to my headset at *all times*. Everything else I want going to my external speakers at *all times*.

I'd like to not have to plug and unplug the 3.5mm jacks each time.

I've read up and saw that installing the latest Realtek drivers would solve the issue but it hasn't gotten me anywhere and now after finding this website today and registering I see that Realtek is a major problem spot.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction here?

Thanks.

p.s. system specs are updated.

A:All sounds to external speakers *except* Skype and Voipwise to headset

Maybe your voice comm software is not being recognized as a voice comm software, and thus not being redirected. I know Skype has audio out settings where you can set where to ring, play and listen, but I have no idea about Voipwise.

Robot City is an old '95 game. Nevermind why I'm wasting my time with it..

I can load the game just fine and everything works except for a small glitch in the display. When I move the mouse it leaves a large square trail behind it and distorts the screen turning it black.

The help file mentions this and I am running the game in 640x480 and 256 color just as it says I should.

Any ideas?

Here is the section of the help file that mentions it:

****************************************************************
7. Video Display Problems
****************************************************************
Robot City requires 256-color mode
Robot City is an 8-bit, 256-color application. In order to view
Robot City, you need a video card which supports at least 256
colors in 640x480 resolution. Robot City requires you run in 256
color mode. Other modes will cause colors to appear incorrectly
and may cause streaking or trails on the screen. If you are not
in 256-color mode, a warning dialog will appear when you launch
Robot City telling you to correct the problem, exit and restart

A:Audio Freezing Sounding Like A Robot

Hi there

The problem is definitely a software one, because you said you tried another sound card and the problem persists.
The problem is most likely coming from your codecs/filters.

If you have codecs installed, uninstall them and try playing again.
Still not working, uninstall all media players. Re install VLC and try again.

Last ting I can think of is that you download and install XP codec pack.
Just Google it, you will find it.

Hope this helps

Hello,

Here is my basic goal: to have a self-contained robot (computer) that can be added to most any wireless network (tcp/ip) and be found and recognized via the Internet with no additional set up. That's the ideal. To try this I'm using a Linksys router on a small LAN with Windows computers.

I note that Dell can remotely service a computer on a LAN. After giving Dell a code number on the computer, they can call a LAN, locate the computer and work on it remotely. This seems like a very good way of doing things and I'm wondering what they do and how they implement it?

Or, is there a better way? I've been looking at ARP a to find IP to MAC address mapping, but I think this is only useful from within the LAN and not from the Internet.

I gather there are two fundamental ways:
1> Port forwarding, which requires router setup.
2> Calling out to a server on the web, which then sets up a bidirectional connection. This would require an outside server.

Is that exhaustive?

I've been mining for information on this problem, trying to find good solutions.

Thanks for any feedback!

...John

Avast takes a look at the hacks from season one of Mr. Robot and explains what businesses can learn from them.

Season one of last summer?s hit new TV show, Mr. Robot, was filled with interesting and, for the most part, accurately portrayed hacks. The hacks were carried out by the show?s main character Elliot and hacker group fsociety. Their goal throughout the season was to take down the multi-national conglomerate, E Corp.

Although the hacks on the show were rather complex and to a certain extent elaborate, there are a few things SMBs can learn from them.

Hi.

Do you think it would be interesting to have a Internet game with real webcamrobots in a paintball/laserdome battle and be able to hunt real people with the robot?

--------------------
Scandinavia and north of Europe get a delay/lag around 0.3-0.5 sec.
The rest of the world get a delay/lag around 1-3 sec because they have a satellite link.
Some few people get lucky and don't get a satellite link from USA or Australia and then get a delay/lag around 0.5-1 sec.
I will try to upgrade the web camera robots, so they will be able to compete against real people on a paintball/laserdome arena/field.

Hello Ise,

You might see if creating a new shortcut for it directly from the .exe file of Skype may work instead.

Dear
 
I noticed that skype has send to all skype contacts a certain link, to one contact even multiply links.
 
this all happens on the same day: 17th december from 14:30 -14:39.
 
I haven't seen any spam send anymore after that.
 
Skype support told me to reset my password, I did, and to download safety scanner from microsoft. they proviced me with the link.
 
when I try to open the link, the browser cannot load the page, it is stuck in a loop:  sometimes I see a page, but just for a second or even less, then mostly white page, and browser keeps trying to load the page. and in chrome : a  little shield symbol on the right side of the address bar says that it's trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources. this message dissappears very quickly.
 
 
I have skype installed on two laptops, and on my smartphone (iphone).
 
The problem I told about, is on one laptop that has no antivirus. I did not yet checked the other laptop, if the microsoft page opens or not. but I do have bitdefender internet security (paid) installed on the second laptop.
 
I want to be sure the laptop that has the problem, is virusfree.

A:spam send in skype account to all skype contacts - cannot load page safety scan

I downloaded the safety scanner from microsoft from my other laptop without any issue.
 
copied it to a usb, put it on the problem laptop, a full scan and nothing found.
 
I realize I did had a antivirus paid version (kaspersky internet securuity) on the laptop, as I first said that it had no antivirus.
 
I only disabled it because it had problems running.
 
Now I enabled it, updated it and run a full scan. nothing found.
 
I don't know if skype is the cause and not a virus?  the skype workers told me that the cause could be anything (email, virus on computer).
 
I mostly use skype on iphone, and here I'm confused with what the skype workers said: one said that iphone can not be infected, so no need to check the iphone.
an other said: you can download an app from app store to scan for viruses, because it is possible that the virus is on the iphone.
 
This is really not clear anymore.

here are the minimum/max specs for this game
**************************************************
Max Supported Color Depth: 8-bit (256 colors); SVGA graphics(256 colors with 640*480 resolution)
Min Operating System: Microsoft Windows 3.1 or later
Min Processor Type: Intel 486 or higher 25 MHz
Min RAM Size: 8 MB

I got a 633 celeron with 256+mb RAM, onboard video--Intel(R) 82810 Graphics Controller and i have XP pro.
***************************************************

I think that the likely problem is the graphics controller, as in display properties under settings all i can select for color quality is either 16bit or 24bit.

I tried to run it by selecting *run in compatibility with Windows95 *run in 256 colors * run in 640*480 screen resolution. but NO luck. i get two black screens and then it quits right back to desktop. is it even possible to run this game on my comp? if yes, what is the problem?????

Good Evening All,
I have a Inspiron 3847 desktop and a couple of days ago the computer started to sound like a robot, i.e slow and breaking up. To my knowledge all of the software is up to date. The problem is fixed when I restart the computer. Anyone have a fix for this problem?
Thanks

You said the issue fixes itself on reboot. So what software and applications are you running and how long is your usage before the audio issue shows up again?

A curious add-on called "Looking Glass" started popping up on Firefox for a number of users this past week -- even if they didn't give the browser permission to install it. Due to its nebulous nature and creepy description that only said "MY REALITY IS JUST DIFFERENT FROM YOURS," people took to social networks to ask other users and air their concerns. Turns out Looking Glass isn't spamware, malware or any of the sort: it's a promotional campaign for Mr. Robot, a TV series about the life of a cybersecurity-engineer-slash-hacker.

Hello,

as stated in the Title, i am trying to connect a Lego Mindstorms EV3 Brick to my pc that is running a custom linux-based OS (Getting Started with ev3dev). I can connect it via USB just fine, it detects it as a wired connection as its supposed to.
Now, to do what i want to do with my robot, i need to share my internet connection. The connection i share the internet connection from is my universities wireless network. I have tried enabling and disabling FIPS on that network, does not change that i get a bluescreen.

The bluescreen itself appears from a few seconds to about a minute after i activate sharing my internet connection. It says Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal.

i attached the .zip file created by dm log collector.

greetings,
tmork

edit: the earliest i will be able to test any solutions will be coming monday, nov 7th. i hope i can get the problem fixed until then, since the assignment needs me to run my programs on the ev3.

I've experienced some problems and discomfort with skype for win8:
- not able to show screen,
- terrible design,
- very slow response (i.e. when I click RMB, the menu shows up in several seconds, and I expect to see it immideately),
- doesn't understand links to skype chat like skype:?chat&blob=blahblahblah, when I click it nothing happens.

I've also tried skype for desktop, it was even worse:
- when I changed online status to invisible (i've also tried with N/A), skype stopped to receive and send messages,
- when this or another error occurs, I try to kill skype process via task manager, TM then firstly says that skype is not responding (so i am trying to kill process), after that TM stops responding as well.
So when i've tried skype for desktop i had to reboot my laptop about 5 times in a day.

Now I've installed skype from Store back, but I still need to go to skype chat.

Could anyone please help me either make skype 5.x/6.x work on win8, or enter the chat which i need?

Here's my system: http://i.imgur.com/Fu65f57.png

Thanks in advance!
