Black window keeps popping up on my computer. It's quick and I cannot read it. It happens every 15 to 20 seconds. Any suggestions? It is a dell inspiron lap top. It has been going on for about a week

  • Start -> Run -> cmd.exe
  • Then type the following "net stop messenger" after which you'll see "messenger service is stopping".
To start it again for any reason open the command prompt again (Start -> Run -> cmd.exe) and type "net start messenger"
Now you can be assured that your world will become silent. No more pop-up black screens.

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.

How increase my mic volume

a) to hell with calling india, they are as dumb as bush is.
b) click start > accessories > entertainment > volume controls. when the volume controls open, click on file (drop down menu) then select recording, then click ok. when the recording volume controls come up. select microphone as the default recording device, and make sure the mute box is not checked. slide the volume control slider most of the way up.
c) if you are using yahoo's call-out, run the audio wizard in yahoo messenger before making call.
d) plug your microphone into other 3.5 mm jacks on computer, and use window's sound recorder to see if the computer is picking up audio through the mic.
e) make sure your microphone's mute switch is not turned on (if applicable).
