Make sure the microphone is working by making a short movie in windows movie maker. You will also have to set up the sound in options in Windows live or MSN or whatever you used, it is usually dissabled.

    It may be worth trying a seperate mic other than the built in one, your card should show the mic as enabled.

    Go to the sound icon in taskbar and right click on properties and click on advanced button on mic slider and click hardware test to check the mic for recording sound.

Can a new car radio kill the battery?


Yes and that was due to bad installation. I have had 3 car stereos installed on my 98 RAV4 through Best Buy and never had battery problems. I even had 2 amps installed as well but the installers had to make me buy this 200-dollar thing that would not drain the battery.

If you are getting a drain through the radio's power supply it could eventually drain down the battery if it was improperly installed, I would pull the fuse for the radio and see if the drain continues, if the drain does not stop there is another short somewhere. To learn more :

Download the latest drivers for your sound card because speakers are analog and do not require drivers. The sound card is in charge of all of the sound drivers.

Hi,
Follow the procedure for speaker installation here. Verify it.
As this is a very basic output device, it uses the computer's Audio drivers to channel the sound from each speaker correctly. Make sure that your audio driver is installed and working. Other wise open another ticket and give us info on the sound card

Logitec pro 9000, Logitec headset, skype


See section A. Skype in the info below.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Installed new monitor, lost my sound


If your previous monitor had built in speakers and your new monitor does not you are going to have to purchase new speakers. If your new lcd monitor has an audio input you can purcahse a sterio mini jack cable for under $10 at any store that sells computer stuff (circuit city, best buy, walmart, target, etc). Simply plug one end into your monitor and the other end into your computers audio output jack (usually color coded green). Now of course if that monitor does not have built in speakers your only option is to purcahse a set of speakers for the computer. These usually start at around $15.
