High Pitched Chipmonk Audio on Window8 with Realtek HD

Q: High Pitched Chipmonk Audio on Window8 with Realtek HD

High Pitched Chipmonk Audio on Window8 with Realtek HD

Recently my laptop started sounding like the Chipmonks, with a higher pitch, set to all of the sounds coming out my computer. After reading dozens of useless posts, I came to the conclusion that this 'must be a settings' issue, and started looking around. The culprit, in my case, was a setting for Realtek HD sound card. This is what I did to correct it:

1. Put on some music or sound for monitoring.
2. Right-click on the (little red speaker) icon, for the Realtek HD sound card on the toolbar (or find in programs).
3. Click on 'Sound Manager'
4. Click on 'Sound Effects'
5. Find the 'Karaoke' setting.
6. Set it to '+0'
7. IMPORTANT: Click 'ok' on the bottom right corner.

That should do it.
Setting that Karaoke tab up will increase the sound pitch for all audio on the computer. Setting it down, will lower the pitch for all of the audio. I hope this helps someone out there.

Preferred Solution: High Pitched Chipmonk Audio on Window8 with Realtek HD

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 have an Advent 7066M laptop running Windows XP. If I connect headphones or speakers to it and try to play audio or video, the sound is too high pitched. Does anyone know what I can do to correct that?


A:Audio Is Too High Pitched

Try rolling back the sound driver from within Device Manager, joebeaven. If this is not an option, uninstall the sound driver and reboot. If the driver is not automatically reinstalled after reboot: "Drivers can be installed from the c:\applications\drivers folder and utilities from the c:\applications\tools folder." This info was taken from here.If your issue started recently, there may have been some form of corruption that has occurred.

My operating system is Win/95b. I get a high pitched squealing staticy sound over everything but CD player. I have an OPTi plug n play audio device. I checked system and it says devices are working properly. It seems the problem didn't start until I installed Win optimizer. So I uninstalled it and re-booted but I still have the same problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:High-pitched static over audio

I occasionally try using an app (Cortana, audio recording from the mic, etc) that uses the mic, and find the don't work because the audio is converted to a high pitched, fast chipmunk sound. It hasn't happened often enough for me to figure out what is doing it and repeat it. It's just intermittent.

I didn't have this problem before going from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, and it still happens after the anniversary update.

It's easy to fix by disabling and then enabling the mic in device properties window, but I just want it to work without having to do that.

My speaker and my audio generate very loud high pitched noise after waking from sleep.I had to mute my audio if this happens, but the speaker is essentially unusable in this situation.If I plug in my headphone through audio jack, the high pitched noise will come from both headphone (and unmutable) and my speaker (if I turn on the volume). I hope this is fixable through driver update.

I think my question is this: how do I set up VSX-1124 (a Pioneer AVR) in Control Panel/Sound and Hardware/Sound so that its driver is Realtek HD Audio and not the Intel Display Audio one?

In Device Manager under Sound, Video and game controllers, I have two sound card drivers, Realtek High Definition and Intel Display Audio. I don't understand how Realtek High Definition Audio drivers work in relation to the Intel Display Audio drivers. If I go to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound then Playback, there are four options, as you can see from the picture below.

I'm guessing that if I choose the receiver as my default device that I'm using the Intel Display Audio drivers and any of the other three options that I'm using the Realtek drivers. Is this correct? If the receiver is the default device, everything works fine; I get sound from sites like cnn.com and I can listen to internet radio, etc. However, if Speakers are the default device, I don't get sound. Is this normal? If so, what's the reason for having Realtek? If it isn't normal, will I notice a difference if I use the Realtek drivers? If I would see/hear a difference, how do I get them to work?

A:Realtek High Definition Audio and Intel Display Audio

The RealTek is for the regular PC sound. The Intel Display Audio is for HDMI sound. If an HDMI cable is plugged in Windows will automatically default to the HDMI as the "default playback device". If you have an HDMI cable plugged in and want the PC sound you must manually change the playback device. If you want both HDMI and PC audio, you can't have that as Windows will only allow one default audio playback device.

Does this answer the question?

Hey Guys,

So here it goes, I normally have my Logitech z-5500 speakers connected to the onboard sound output (green,yellow and black) as well as my Plantronics 780 connected to the front panel USB port. I used to be able to play music through any one without any problems, just had to select which one I wanted as my default playback device.

Now my problem is, I get audio fine through the 780, but I get no sound what so ever from any of the onboard ports. I have searched online for hours trying all the suggested solutions(check below) but I'm hoping its not a device failure =(

What's weird is that just like all other posts I've read, when I plug anything into the onboard jacks I get the speakers as connected and the audio level moves with sound..but I get no output from my speakers.
What I have tested:

1) removing and reinstalling audio drivers from Asus website. - no luck
2) trying a headphone in the different jacks to see if any would give audio - no luck
3) went into the BIOS made sure I was up to date and the sound device was enabled - no luck
I can post screenshots of anything that may help in trying to resolve this problem and would appreciate anyone assisting me.
Thank you.

Hi everyone, I would be very grateful for some help please!

My laptop recently installed a BIOS update - I don't know what this was but since it happened I have been having sound problems with my laptop. After the update I had no sound. I read around and found how to get the sound back on - I did this by uninstalling AMD high definition audio device and high definition audio device. I would then restart the laptop and the sound would be working again. But when the laptop would be turned off, on turning back on it would re-install the above 2 things again automatically and the sound would no longer work.

I noticed that when the sound was working realtek high definition audio was listed under sound, video and game controllers in the device manager and when it wasn't working this wasn't there. Every time I uninstalled the AMD high definition audio device and high definition audio device the realtek one would be automatically installed when the laptop was restarted but then taken off on the next restart. I tried disabling the first 2 to see if that made any difference but it didn't. I noticed the drivers could be removed for the AMD high definition audio device so I tried that - that is now fully removed but I still have the problem with sound.

My laptop keeps automatically installing high definition audio device. When this is listed the sound doesn't work and the realtek high definition audio isn't listed. When I uninstall that - on the first restart the realte... Read more

A:realtek high definition audio and high definition audio device problem

First, the AMD High Definition Audio Device is ONLY for HDMI audio. It has nothing to do with the PC audio (speakers and/or headset).

Are you sure it was a BIOS update? Those are normally not automatic. The BIOS is the heart of the PC and controls the hardware configurations.

The basic Windows installed High Definition Audio Coded/Device is a generic audio driver. It can be installed for the PC audio and/or the HDMI audio. As this is a generic, basic function driver, the correct hardware driver needs to be installed.

Without the actual HP model number, I can't research what actually belongs on your PC. Apparently it is RealTek, but as it isn't functioning properly, or conflicting I still need to research the PC's specs.

My microphones aren't working with the Realtek sound card, I've tried different mics including a brand new one and the build in one on the laptop. I've also searched Google for the common problems and can't seem to find any answers.

The drivers are up to date, the microphone is enabled and set as default in the sounds panel and volume turned up to full.

My mics have worked in the past (about a year or so ago now). They also work with old drivers dating back to 2005 that are installed when I click roll back drivers in the sound options, but the sound quality makes my ears bleed, so that isn't an option.

Mic isn't working with Realtek sound card, tried everything.

A:Mic problem with Realtek High Def. audio

Firstly,do make sure your mic is workable(try on another PC);
Secondly,please uninstall your audio driver in control panel->programs and features->realtek ...(if your PC using Windows 7 OS)
then try your mic: if could work normally with MS inbox audio driver,you know, that maybe you didn't install the right audio driver for you PC or do right setting for your mic;
otherwise that would be bad news your audio chip on mother board maybe damaged.

A:Realtek & high definition audio?

You should either "rollback" the drivers to RealTek or reinstall RealTek. Usually, the "High Definition Audio" is a generic driver that Windows (Microsoft) provides. Do not allow Windows to automatically update/install the sound driver (some of the other drivers are OK).

If you want to try the rollback first, to to the Device Manager, and the properties for the sound device. Click the Driver Tab and then Click the Roll Back button.

A:Realtek High Definition Audio problem

That sounds like what a bad speaker or speaker connection would do. Do you have a headphone you can connect to the headphone jack (or the rear GREEN speaker jack) and see if does it with the headphone? That would help to isolate the problem.

We have also seen audio problems caused by wi-fi or a cell phone or cordless phone close to the PC/speakers.

I hope this is the right subforum for this!

I've just recently gotten a new computer, and installed Windows 7 64 bit on it.

I'm using an ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard, with RealTek High Definition Audio Codec.

My problem is that my computer seems to only be recognising devices plugged into one audio jack. Basically, when I started the computer up, the speakers (which were already plugged in to the green port, as normal) worked fine, and indeed they still work fine now.
However, if I plug headphones or a microphone in to any of the other ports, it says 'you have plugged a device into the audio jack', but nothing actually happens - headphones are silent, my microphone doesn't receive any sound. The front two jacks don't even make that message pop up - nothing happens at all.

If I unplug my speakers and plug my headphones in to that jack, they seem to work - but obviously that's less than ideal. So it's as if this one jack works and none of the others do.
(My microphone doesn't work when plugged into that jack of course)

I've tried reinstalling the drivers from CD, updating the drivers through windows, updating the drivers from the RealTek website, reinstalling windows, etc. No change at all.

Any ideas?

A:RealTek High Definition Audio problems

Each port has it's own use. Check the motherboard User Manual for specifics.

With that said, the "green" port is the standard audio out port. This is where you would connect your speakers or headphones to hear the audio. It is a standard stereo output or in multi-channel mode, the front left/right.

Did the front panel ports ever work? They need to be connected to the proper outputs on the motherboard.

If they have worked in the past and/or they are properly connected, then you most likely have a driver issue. Several of the Realtek chipsets do not work well with Win7, especially 64bit.

A:Realtek High Definition Audio Troubles - Not Detecting Anything

High Definition Audio Device suggests a generic Windows installed sound driver rather than the RealTek driver.

Make sure you are getting the correct driver, either Vista or Windows 7 for 64 bit OS, from the PC or motherboard vendor's site. Windows XP drivers are not compatible. If you get the warning on a valid driver, click the Install anyway and it should install.

Hello EmeraldBlue.

Considering that you have W10 Home 64-Bit you should really have posted this at our sister forum:

However I can tell you that your audio device is Realtek ALC3234, I mean you can of course download the audio driver from Dell Support site:

Trying to figure out this problem i visit multiple websites and many people tell me to delete the sound drivers from my PC and re-install them. The only problem was i had no CD that came with my laptop so i had to find the drivers online. I went to Acer.com and put in my model number and found the right laptop. I went to the Audio tab and 3 driver options came up. Not knowing which was the right one i downloaded/installed them all.
Before we go any further ill give the spec's of my PC and what driver i deleted.

Weak, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Are you using the analogue or digital connection? With those speakers and using onboard sound, you would probably be better off using the digital connection, as the speakers are liable to have a better DAC in them than the onboard audio.

This is a driver issue?

Quite possibly is you tried and/or managed to install the Realtek drivers based on what you have listed in your specs. You show it as the AC'97 when your motherboard has the Realtek HD,


of which you can find links for the latest version here,

P.S. If you really want to get the most out of those speakers, you should look into getting a decent sound card and use the analogue connections on it.

I have just recently encountered a problem where my speakers are playing/making crackling/popping sounds. However, I know this is because of my computer because I hooked my speakers up to my phone and it worked perfectly fine. I'm also aware that if I play a sound over bluetooth the sound doesn't happen. I've run the trouble shooting program 10 times, and after it caused my system sounds to termporarly stop working (fixed by restarting computer) I stopped running it. I believe this is being caused by the Realtek High Definition Audio driver, however im not positive. I've tried going to Device Manager and updating it but it doesnt solve the problem, in fact while trying all this it actually got worse. Before 5 days ago I had never had this problem, and my computer came with Windows 10 installed. I have also noticed that it mostly occurs with my left speaker and hardly at all with my right. I have a HP ENVY Phoenix Desktop, and i've had it for around a year. Any reccomendations on what to do?

A:Realtek High Definition Audio Codecs Issue

Hi. . .

I need to get some system info from you. The easiest way is for you to run the Sysnative BSOD File Collection App -


Please attach the resulting zip file to your next post.

I also need to know your system's manufacturer and the product number.

What was the reason that you updated the driver?

Have you tried to roll the driver back to the previous version?

Please provide the Realtek link that you are now using/have used to update the driver.

Have you tried the Realtek audio codec supplied by your system manufacturer's (OEM) support site? Usually, OEMs will modify the Realtek codec and it is the modified one that ends up working.

Go to the OEM support site, download the Realtek audio codec, install it snd see if there is any difference.

First and foremost - ALWAYS create a system restore point before updating drivers.


Regards. . .

My system is not muted
I have tried to update the driver from both Realteks and MSIs web pages - no luck.
I have tried to connect my headphones in both rear and front - no luck.
When I play audio - I do see green bars in under the playback tab under sound devices.
I do have the Realtek HD Audio Manager
I have noticed that when I mark "Disable front panel jack detection" in the Realtek HD audio manager, the headphones appears to be connected in the playback tab, when I uncheck it, the headphones seems to be disconnected in the playback tab.

Can anyone help me please
Kind regards

Is the "Speakers" set as the default audio playback device? That setting is in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound Panel.

A:Realtek high defination audio microphone problem

i have the same problem on hp compaq 6715b. I've been tweaking windows and searching google for 24 hrs now, and i'm left under the impression that soundmax HDA (realtek HDA in your case) just doesn't support hardware mic monitoring. I'd venture 3rd party software is the solution but haven't been able to find anything useful. SOMEONE PLEEEASE HEELP ASAP

Hi, I recently upgraded my Yoga 2 Pro to Windows 10 and was excited to try Cortana but unfortunately I could not get it to recognize my voice. It turns out that the microphone level with the Windows 10 Realtek High Definition Audio drivers is abismally low. This also causes a problem with Skype and Google Hangouts. I have tried every driver I could find (Realtek.tw, Microsoft Updates catalog server, etc) and none of them resolved the problem. I also tried the "generic" High Definition Audio driver and that also did not work. Has anyone else experieced this problem and if so, has anyone found a solution?Thanks.
