Q: My computer sounds like its on helium, or sounds like alvin and chipmucks

I am new to this website, but I heard Phantom010 works well, but not 100% sure it would work for my computer. Any solution please and thank you ?

Preferred Solution: My computer sounds like its on helium, or sounds like alvin and chipmucks

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.)

I am having a problem when playing music on my computer and downloading music. When it plays it sounds very fast and like they sucked on some helium. I tried goin in my control panel but that didnt work. I think its something deeper. No matter where i get music to play from it sounds like chipmunks on speed. I have a COMPAQ- DESKPRO ("yuk") with win2000, a cd writer, too. How do i get my music to sound normal again?

thank you,

Hi I am new here.

I am running Win XP Home SP2 and recently my computer has been making random background noises. Its like an IE7 mouse click. Sometimes it plays ads in the background and sometimes for long periods of time. I have had no other programs open that have advertisements built into at the time. I have AVG Free and it has decteted several trojans. So I stumped upto this point.

here is my HJT Log.

Mind you I did not have IE7 running at the time but HJT picked it up. Not sure... Anyways

Ok so I have a simple, but annoying problem. I have no Windows Sound Events like the login sound, the logout sound, and when the battery is low. 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.

A:No Windows Sounds, but regular sounds play fine

Hi all; I have a weird problem. My Dell Dimension 3000 Running XP bla-bla....had no drivers installed when I got it back. Had to download Ethernet driver on another computer to a flash drive. And get it up and running. The writable CD-Rom sounds fine {it has a different driver than the player only] I double checked the driver twice and it is the exact one. I even tried a different cd-rom device and it had the audio quality problem. It just sort of sounds like it's clipping.I don't know where to go next........HELP!



    my computer won't play any sounds other than system sounds. i have a creative sound blaster PCI512 sound card and im running windows xp pro. i tried downloading the driver update from the creative website, but it had no effect.

    try uninstalling your sound card from your device manager and check if your card is seated properly in the slot. re-install and boot.
    if problem persists call a doctor. lol.

    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.

    I've got a weird one: I hooked the HDMI from the PC to the television and get great picture, but the sound is weird. I get system "dings" and whatnot, but I don't get the audio from games or YouTube videos. I've already tried setting the default audio device to the HDMI port, but I get sound from the speakers on the PC, not via HDMI.

    The video card is an EVGA 750 Ti SC, running on a Biostar HiFi A85W.


    A:Get system sounds, but NO YouTube or game sounds. Help?

    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.

    can someone tell me how to set the sounds for startup, errors, exit, etc on my machine (winxp). the speakers work but I need help with the machine settings.

    A:need computer sounds

    Start Menu/Control Panel.

    In Control Panel click Sound and Audio. (I *think* this is how it is listed in XP)

    Sounds tab.

    Look at what is listed for Sound Scheme. If it is set for No Sounds click the drop down arrow and choose Windows Default.

    Check the box next to Play Windows Startup Sound if that is available to you.

    I have just set up a new computer. (Yes I finally got it)The specs are
    Pentium 4 2.53GHz
    512 MB DDRam
    80 GB HD
    Windows XP, etc. etc.

    The thing I notice is that unlike my other computers, it groans and grinds a bit, whenever it is active and even when it is not active it makes a few little grinds. This is not the sound of the fan. It is like a rolling, grinding sound. I am sure I am not the first to experience this. What is it Is it normal and is there anything I can do to stop it?

    I might add that if I have to send this back I shall go bananas. It took me 14 hours yesterday to set it up, update 38 critical updates, 2 drivers, 8 other updates, put my own proggies on it and generally change settings and stuff. I don't want to go through that again in a hurry.

    A:Computer sounds

    could be the floppy or more likely the CD/DVD/burner. I've noticed that the higher speed ones tend to make alot of noise. Also, your cache and swap file could be constantly being accessed and you're hearing the hard drive working...you must have a pretty quiet system to hear that.

    Since I put in Win 7 over the weekend, I have been getting a new sound. I have been d/l several large (2 gig) files restoring my programs. It seems when the HD starts working extra hard, I hear this "ding, ding, ding". One about every second as long as the HD is working hard. It doesn't seem to interfere with the operation, but I am always suspect of sounds that are new. Anyone have any ideas what that might be?

I work in my garage and the connection is at full because on top of the garage is the WiFi room and the ceiling in the garage has a sound killer. I have tried other online help but nothing I have found useful. I have tried troubleshooting but no problems showed up on the troubleshooter. I currently use a USB WiFi Adapter but I have tried to switch it to Ethernet but it does the same thing. I have also tried to run an antivirus but it wont allow me to do the installation but I have tried using Norton 360 (I always use it) but it says No Problems Found so I don't know what that sound could be.

    I don't know if your problem is malware related or not, but it sure sounds like it. So let's take a look and see.

    Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. Open up the result.txt file created. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it back here. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

    Hi, I have 2 issues and not sure if they are related.
    1. I am getting random music and sound coming through my laptop, i am not running any programs and even happens when my laptop is closed. its a different sound every time, sometimes traffic, sometimes a girl humming and sometimes like someone chatting on a website and once even sounded like porn. It lasts for about 5 mins.
    2. At the same time the sounds started i also started getting problems with IE, error pops up on random pages saying internet explorer has stopped working and then closes the program. It happens more frequent when i try to search why the random sound keeps happening or when i go to tech support sites like this one and try to read posts.

    This is the first time i have posted and not sure on what details you need, i did download DDS, and can do that if you require.

    Frequently when I wake my computer up from sleep mode, especially if I have been using iTunes or playing music before putting the computer to sleep, the computer will wake up and make crackling noises over the normal sounds it would play. It will still play normal sounds, but the sound is highly distorted by a static, crackling sound. This sound continues to be distorted until I restart my computer, which always fixes the problem temporarily.

    I have tried different speakers and headphones, and it is the same problem regardless of these peripherals so I am convinced it is not the speakers. I am wondering if my sound card, itself, might be bad.

    I am using Windows 7 on a desktop which I assembled myself. There is a sound card which, I believe, has updated drivers. Sound usually works fine except for these times when the computer wakes from sleep making crackling noises over the normal sounds it would make.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hello everyone!

    I was erasing unecessary things off my computer and I'm not sure if I accidently erase something that I wasn't suppose to or not. All I know is that my sounds on my computer are not stopped working at all. A few times my computer would say a hardware has been found,but everytime I try to install it, it tells me that the hardware couldn't be found. I went to control panel and my computer says "no active mixer sounds." Nothing happens when I try to update my drivers in the Device Manager. In Sounds and Audio it says "No audio device." My System Restore button won't work either so I can't restore my settings. My computer didn't come with a disk so I can't reinstall the program. I'm not sure if this computer came with a sound card, if it did, I wouldn't know where to look for it. Can anyone tell me if my sound drivers needs to be updated, or could there be a virus on my computer or something. Please someone help me to find what out what happened to my sounds. Thanks

    Strange minor problem but a noisy one. I have 2 altec lansing speakers connected to a woofer (I think), all connected to the computer.

    The speakers never did this before. Just started recently. They will make a scratching noise, like static. It wakes me up when I'm sleeping. Of course the speakers are on when they do this.

    I realize that I can just shut the speakers off, but I don't want to wear out the knobs and make these speakers have any more feedback than they already do.

    Any idea what is causing feedback when the sys is off, and what I can do?

    Speakers are in same place as they always have been.

    Hi everyone,Until a few minutes ago my computer was playing sound files perfectly fine. All of a sudden I can't play any sound anymore. I tried testing Windows sounds in Control Panel -> Sounds and Devices, but an error messages appears which says -"ErrorWindows cannot play the file %systemroot%\media\Windows XP Battery Critical.wav file. It may be damaged or may not be a valid sound file. Replace the file and try again."I'm also unable to hear audio on the Internet and on Windows Media Player / VLC.Any idea what could have gone wrong? Edit: I have a Dell Dimension 9150.

    A:Can't play sounds on my computer

    If you go to start, run, devmgmt.msc do you see any yellow question marks next to your sound drivers? It used to happen to every time I ran windows update on xp, it replaced my drivers with ones that didn't work.

    I know how to change my program event sounds, but don't know what some of these events are for. For example, open, close windows, mail notification are obvious. What are "exclamation, critical stop, and question" for? Is there a way to set up a sound to tell me when a download is complete?


    A:Customize computer sounds

    You can do it through third-party software such as Icon Hear It. I had an earlier version of it a few years back and it would let me assign sounds to just about any event I could think of in Windows, including a separate one for completed file downloads (as I recall, anyway). Not sure if the new version has that particular event included---you can contact Moon Valley and ask.

    I started a new thread so i could post my Belarc results. My sound is not working. I have tried uninstalling, downloading drivers, unplugging cables and power and rebooting. (My speakers are in my Compaq FP 5315 monitor, so no seperate cables, I'm assuming).

    Anyway, here's my Belarc results. Any help would be fantastic. Thanks a lot in advance.

    This has actually only happened one time. But, my computer started playing the beginning of the ghostbusters movie. It played the whole theme song after that and then continued with dialog and sounds. I don't even have this movie on my computer. I opened task manager and didn't see anything suspicious (but what do I know?). It may have been an ad...but I didn't see one on the page I was on. Also, I don't think that there would be an ad that advertised the first 3 minutes of the ghostbusters movie. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Win 7 64 bit. Whenever I have window opening a voice comes through the speaker telling me what the message says. I can turn the sound completely down and I don't hear it. How can I turn this off?

    A:setting sounds on computer

    Hello grreatpop, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You might check to see if you may have Narrator turned on. If so, turning it off should stop this.

    Turn off NarratorTo open Narrator click the Start button , and then, in the search box, type Narrator. In the list of results, click Narrator.
    Click Control whether Narrator starts when I log on.
    Clear the Turn on Narrator and Turn on Audio Description check boxes and click Apply.

    Hope this helps,

    My computer:

    Nvidia nForce 680i Motherboard
    GeForce 9800GTX 512mb Video Card
    2 GB DDR2 Memory
    Intel 2.33GHz Core 2 Duo Processor
    600W OCZ Power Supply


    One thing to note - I see that there isn't a 8 pin connector for the CPU spot. I only have two 4 pin connectors (but only one of them works for that of the 8 pins available). So I think I need to get a different power supply from Newegg because this one is not right... Doesn't have any 8 pin connectors, only two 6 & 4 pin.

    The noise/problem:

    At random moments when my computer is running it makes a weird noise like sort of high pitched, not really loud, just something I notice when its running.

    I've had it freeze at times and require a manual shutdown.

    ALL 3 LEDS are constantly lit up on my mother board (green, blue, orange) as well the temp LCD thing always says "FF".

    (I notice the Graphics Card runs default at 25%. Does that ever change with the workload, etc.? I never hear it change when I go in a game or anything. I am pretty sure that was causing the freezing so I used Riva Tuner to change the fan speed to like 70% with gaming, etc.)

    I still get a freeze up once in a while. Usually when I have a few programs open after it being on for a little while.


    So basically, what makes it freeze up and make me shut down? It usually makes a weird crazy sound ... Read more

    Anyone have any ideas on this? Thanks.

    So the past week or so, my computer's both started to have voices coming from the speakers. Either some kind of music, or it would be a news program. It always happens when noone is on the computer. I checked my task manager and saw that no applications were running but when i looked in the processes, internet explorer was running. Id then end the process and the news/music would stop.

    I have run scans on my computer and it has found nothing. Im running Vista Ultimate 64 bit, and just recently updated to IE8 yesturday to see if it would fix the problem but it hasn't.

    Any idea's?
