My microphone wont work

It is the settings that matter. Go to the Volume icon in the system tray in right bottom corner and you will find MIC in the box that opens. Please unmute the mic and also reduce the volume for the mic. It is high volume here that is producing the screech and muted mic that does not send your speech. So do the needful here. Somehow Windows is in a habit of muting the mic on its own. Keep checking it once in a while.

When on-line i can hear who i'm viewing, but they can't hear me

Deb, Click the Volume icon in the right bottom corner of the screen in the system tray and unmute the mic there. Windows has a habit of muting it on its own. So, before connecting the IM unmute the mic.

How do I unmute my skype?

I beleivee that you do not have the Skype Audio Setting set properly. I will give you instructions as to how to set up Skype and then it should work for you.
Normal 0

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.

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 is some help to you. Bud

Mic problem

Make sure You change the setting In the audio properties in windows. you might have it set for internal sound card.

goto control panel / Sound and audio devices / click on audio

make sure its set for your microphone on the webcam.

some webcam programs will automatically do this, but to be on the safe side, double check it, cheapy wouldnt do this. you might have to resort to doing it manually.

Gigaware PC Camera with Mike sound problem

What you need to do is when you go to the advanced settings on skype, slide the volume slider thing, then click save before you speak or do anything to make the slider move back. I just spent 2 hours fixing this bug, and it worked for me.
good luck
