Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX150 PC Desktop ?

People in any videos I download sound like chipmunks

\015 When I listen to audio from any video format on my computer the people in the video sound like chipmunks, how can I restore this to normal?\015

Answers :

I am having a similar problem on my other computer. My son installed an old microphone we had from a windows98 computer and suddenly audio stuff sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks. I tried our windows troubleshooter thing and set our accelleration to basic which helped Window media, but Youtube and whatever the other media thing that defaults when my son clicks on "my music' songs, are still distorted.

We tried unplugging and plugging in the mic again - a green 'realtek' box showed up. I thought about uninstalling it to see, but wondered if this is something that affects other parts of my computer.
If you are using Media Player, open media player, click on View, then Enhancements, choose Play Speed Settings, move to the bottom left of the screen and select Normal, it will be between Slow and Fast. Let me know if this helps
