Right click in the taskbar,then click properties,then click notification area and tick the volume box. it should go back to the tray. Then right click the volume icon and goto recording devices,choose the device you wish to use and then click properties. Ensure that it is enabled.

Skype microphone does not work


You need to check your audio (sometimes called Sound on some systems) settings (under control panel on Windows or Settings on Mac).

Under input (or sometimes called sound recording), make sure the headset you are using is selected.

You might also try using the headset with another program to see if it will record your voice. (Audacity is free http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. You can download it and try recording on it.)

If it still doesn't work, here is a page on Skype that has a Microsoft tool you can try - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA897/why-can-t-the-other-person-hear-me

Using medion md 96340 with built-in realtek hd audio sound card. in skype video calls the caller can hear very well but called person does not hear at all. skype echo test says-cannot find sound...


Hi,

Analysis- The call can gear very well - indicates that the speakers / head phones are working fine and the audio drivers are working well
The called person doesnt hear any thing - it indicates that the caller is not able to transmit sound. This can be a microphone related issue. It can also be skype settings issue.

Please answer following questions to analyze the issue better

1. has this ever worked before?
2. Have you tried using the microphone for some other application like recording some audio?
3. Have you tried audio / video calls using some other chat program like gtalk?
4. Are u using any external microphone attached to a head set or is it the laptops inbuilt microphone?

Assuming your T.V. is set up right, That is, the cable input matches the select input on the remote control check this, try clicking around the input choices while you feed the computer output to the to the T.V. Otherwise you may need to check for a other coveter boxes, It stands to reason, one way or another, you should be able to see the computer image on that T.V. model.

DELL 630m audio problem


It may be that your PC is now reading the mike as a crystal mike and the signal is too strong. Try to attenute the signal by pluging the mike into a mixer box to reduce the signal strength.

Acer aspire 4720z Built-in microphone only records loud static


You did great troubleshooting for your laptop. If the sound is fine and good for the headset, your sound card is probably not the problem. The driver aspect, should not be the problem either if it works with your headset. So herein lies the dilemma...the problem is most likely due to some physical componenent between the built-in mike and the computer case itself. You should take it to a laptop repair shop and see what they can do. It has nothing to do with the software or the sound card. It is the physical component of the built-in mike and speakers. Get that checked out and you should be good to go!

My computer is not detecting microphone when making internet phone calls.


Troubleshooting - Can't get voice chat to work.
Here are a few things you should know and check for to get the voice chat to work. · Firewalls - the voice chat feature may not work well behind company firewalls. Even though you can get other features of Yahoo! Messenger to work, the voice chat feature uses separate technology and may not work as well.
· Check connection - When you enter into a voice chat with friends, each participant should take turns trying to press and hold down the Press to Talk button. Everyone else should see their name turn red when they do that. If you see their names turn red, but don't hear anything, it may be a microphone / speaker problem, or it may be that we have more bugs that we need to fix. If you don't see their name turn red, you are probably having connection problems and that's why it's not working.
· Get the latest version - Please make sure that everyone who is using the voice chat feature has the latest version.
· Check mic and speakers - Check that your microphone works and that your speakers are turned on. Here's how:
* make sure the mic is plugged in correctly.
* adjust the mic properties.
- go to the control panel (start button -- settings -- control panel)
- click on the multimedia icon
- you should see a tab for audio
- make sure that the recording volume is set high.
* you can test your mic. by doing the following.
- Click the Windows Start button, then go to Programs, then Accessories, then Multimedia, then click on Sound Recorder
- A new window called Sound Recorder will pop up. Click on the record button (a red circle), then say a few words, then click the stop button (black square).
- Click the play button (black triangle).
If you can hear yourself fine, then your microphone is okay. If you can't hear your voice using Sound Recorder, the voice chat should not work either.
