My T6216 Emachine stopped working. None of the


Even if those things power up doesn't mean your PSU is still good.
In particular the PSU in eMachines are known to be cheap/bad and one of the first things to go out.

If you have access to one try another ATX power supply.
You don't have to remove the old one just to test.

1) Unplug the existing PSU power cable from the back.
2) Remove all it's connections (MB, drives, etc).
3) Plug the other PSU in with just the two MB connections (the main, and 12v one), skipping any drives for now.
It's probably ok if the test one is not touching, but I like to put the PC on the side with the test PSU setting on top where the original one is making sure it has good contact with the case to make sure it's grounded.
4) Now plug the AC into the test PSU and power it up.

If it still dosn't power up it's probably MB, or CPU.
You could also unplug it again (you always want to unplug the PSU when doing anything, the power is always on), and try removing any add on cards (like your wireless card), and try again.

If it does power up (you get a POST screen), unplug PSU again, now plug-in drives, then AC back and see if it will boot up.

I HAVE TROUBLE HEARING MY CONTACT


Hello there!

Dear Esther M Shane, if you are having problems with hearing other skype contacts, please do next :

Check your output(speaker) volume, put it on maximal,

talk with your contact, advise him/her to volume up their output, or to possibly change their quality due to equivalent of your chat.

Its not really your fault if you cant heart their output very well, those people should check for problems with their imputs, ofcourse if you done all checkings I have told at the text up there.

I wish you good luck and a lot of quality usage of skype!

Sincerely
Aleksandar Adzic

My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working


I had the same issue. This is what I found. It seems the Realtek audio and the Microsoft volume drivers are conflicting with each other. If you look at the bottom right (next to clock) you should see the usual grey speaker icon (Microsoft Master Volume controller) and you may also see a reddish speaker (Realtek audio) icon. This should indicate that both are controlling your audio.

If you click [start] - [run], type: msconfig and click [ok]. Click on [startup] tab at top. Look under startup item and uncheck: RTHDCPL then [apply], [ok] and restart your netbook. After it reboots the only audio icon that should appear is the grey speaker (microsoft master volume controller). Your mic should work now. Go to sound recorder and test. You may also need to upgrade to the lasted audio driver from the acer site but try shutting down Realtek first.

Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it


Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).
