Why does music on my computer sound like chipmunks? 

by on December 31, 2010

Q: My comp’s sound, when playing music for example, comes out like chipmunks.

Recently I took just her comp away by itself for a day, and this occured after I brought it back/reconnected it. But she cant say when the last time is she played music, so with nothing else having happened to anything between this gap (comp wasn’t damaged with my using it), what could be causing this?

checked all equalizers, thinking those settings might be generating this, but no.

Could it be the speakers? nothing was done to them, but I’ve exhausted the avenues open to me through control panels. I dunno.

How can I turn off my computers microphone? 

by on December 31, 2010

Q: My computer monitor is a HP Pavilion M50. There is a Voice recorder already in the computer (as in, we never bought one but there is a hole in the screen and you can record into that). Ok my problem is, once i turn on any sound on my computer, the recorder picks it up and plays it back threw the speakers. So if I’m typing, I can hear the typing in the speakers too. The worst part of all is when i play music. Since the recorder picks up the music that is playing out the the speakers, puts it through again, it makes the loudest high pitched static noise in the world. I was just wondering how I can turn the recorder off. I tried looking in the volume controls, but i didn’t find anything for it.

How come I cannot backup iTunes on the same disc I used 6 months ago to back it up? 

by on December 29, 2010

Q: I backed up my itunes library about 6 months ago. I want to update my backup and itunes will not let me. Here’s what happens. I go to library and then click back up to disc then the little circle is on back up all itunes library, and then I check off only back up added or changed etc. Soo I then insert the disc that I used six months ago. It then says to insert a blank disc. Do I have to get a brand new disc everytime I want to update my backup? The disc is not full or anything, I just want to update after six months. PLEASE HELP! 🙂
