It may sound easy, but first thing to check is that your speakers are not muted. Try going into the Control Panel>Sound and adjusting the volume. If this does not work, try reinstalling the drivers for your sound. If your computer did not come with a DVD/CD for this, check on the manufacturer's site (if you give the make and model, I can find them for you). If neither of these works, your sound card and/or speakers may be borked =/

I have no microphone when skyping


When you move your cursor to the lower part of the skype (picture) screen/frame, you'll see icons showing up ... "camera", "microphone" "plus sign" & (red) phone handle.

If you see a slash across the "microphone" icon, it means you're on mute. Just move your cursor to that icon and click on it to toggle it (out of mute)

My laptop shows red cross sign in battery and says consider replacing a battery!!what to do does it have any solution and battery life has decreased to 50 min. from 2 and half hour,i bought it just a year...


Hi there,

If the message says consider replacing the battery, I guess the battery life is about to end.

Its good to replace the battery if you have used to laptop for more that 3 years now. Normally that is the max battery life.

However, if the laptop is new and still under warranty, you need to contact your vendor for possible free replacement, since it is abnormal for the battery to wear in such a short time.

Also make sure the replacement battery is perfectly compatible to your laptop. Your vendor can guide you more.

I have replaced batteries in the past. Remove it from the laptop and get the number off of it. Then you can go and Google the number to find a reasonably priced replacement.

Hope this helps you.

Please....my emachines d725's microphone isn't working..help please!


After downloading every possible driver and tweaking every possible adjustment I have come to this conclusion: There is NO built-in microphone on the eMachines D725! Oh, the Device Manager will show it, all right but I assure you, there is no built-in device that can pick up sound on that laptop model. You'd think that a laptop, albeit a budget on, with a built-in webcam should also have an accompanying built-in mic for messaging and calls, but it doesn't. The mic may have fallen by the wayside during the cost-cutting sessions, along with the 3rd and 4th USB ports. Your only options are to connect an external microphone or to trade the D725 for a real laptop.

How can i set up the microphone on my acer ( aspire 3680 )


Go to Start - Control Panel - Sound - Recording - Recording and you will see a list of connected devices. Check that the Microphone is live and has a green tick and also that the driver name is present. Double click or Right Click the Microphone for setup options. If it is not working you may have to reinstall the sound driver.

If this is not working then check Start - Control Panel - Device Manager - Sound, Video and Game Controllers to see if there ay alerts or errors (highlighted in Yellow and Red respectively).

Also check Start - Control Panel - Device Manager - System Devices to see if there ay alerts or errors (highlighted in Yellow and Red respectively).

If there are no errors then you should be able to use the microphone successfully.

The volume may be muted. In Windows, look at the volume control icon on the taskbar. If it is crossed-out, click on the icon and deselect the Mute option.

• The volume level may be too low. In Windows, click on the volume control icon on the taskbar, and then use the slider control to increase the volume level.

• If headphones are connected to the headphone jack on the computer, your computer's built-in speakers will be turned off.

Camera works but skype tells me the microphone is muted.


Go to Tools | Options | Audio Settings which is how the audio and microphone settings are adjusted in Skype.

Your microphone might be muted in the Windows multimedia sound control panel - if you double-click on the speaker in the Windows taskbar you will get the mixer control panel - select Recording devices if the Microphone is not shown, make sure the MUTE checkbox is clear.

Microphone trouble on 5050


assuming that the mic itself isnt faulty, go to the right side of your taskbar and right click on the grey spekaer, not the red one and click on recording devices. When the window pops up make sure the mic realtek HD audio has a green tick and not the line in icon, next click properties and check the settings,you can also configure the mic from this window.
