Can't hear other person

First check the audio setting in messenger,
  • Open Messenger
  • click Tools
  • Audio and Video Settings (if you do not see TOOLS press the ALT key)

If it does not work:
check to see that the system is set up to use the microphone that is built into the webcam (if there is one built in).

This is set in the control panel under sound, you should be able to set the appropriate microphone input and levels there. The system may be set to use the microphone input of your soundcard/motherboard.

There may be further settings in the camera software.

Built in Microphone doesn't work in AIM, Windows Live Messanger

You would be surprised at how many people don't realize that each application has it's own configuration screen.

It's not the end-users fault - like you said... the instructions could be a BIT more clear.

Not able to speak with mic while using messengers

when in yahoo messenger go to actions then call setup, this will set your microphone up within messenger and let you use it. You may need to try all three types of microphone on the drop down list in messenger to set yours up correctly.

Micrphone doesnt work

No one hears you because your microphone is probably set on mute. Go to your start menu, then go to control Panel, find Volume and Sound Control should be the icon that looks like a speaker. Double click that icon. From there Click Options and then properties, find the Microphone option and click the box to the left. This should add Microphone to your menu, then simply unmute your microphone.
