A sound card is a device inside a computer which regulates the input and output of audio to the computer. They can be a separate "card" or piece of hardware, or they can be integrated on your motherboard.

A problem with your sound card could be a multitude of things. The first step of solving the issue would be to verify that your sound card has the most recent drivers, or updates, for use. Find out what sound card you have by going to Control Panel, then Performance and Maintenance, and click on See basic information about your computer. A panel will open up, and click the tab at the top which says Hardware, and then click the Device Manager button. Scroll down to Sound, video, and game controllers, and double click that (or press the + next to it) to open up the drivers and codecs for sound and video. Anything relating to the sound or audio may be it. Then, search for the company of your sound card and find the appropriate drivers.

Im anew account from skype


Installation
Download Skype from the Skype website (see Resources), choosing to "Install" and "Run" the program when prompted by your PC.
Double-click the Skype icon on your desktop to open Skype. A small window, titled "Welcome to Skype" will pop up, prompting you to type in your Skype name and password--if you don't have one, click on the option under the "Skype Name" input form titled "Don't Have a Skype Name?"
Input your details into the "Create a New Skype Account" window that pops up. It asks for your full name and email, and you will have to create a Skype name and password. Click "I Agree-Create Account" once you are done and have perused the Skype license agreement. The Skype interface will come up, from where you can make calls and video chat--you will be logged in under the Skype name you just created.

Using Skype
Find contacts--friends or family also on Skype--by clicking on the upper left-hand menu item in the Skype interface named "Contacts." Click on "New Contact" and input your friend's full name, email or Skype name and click "Find." Alternatively, click "Import Contacts" from the "Contacts" menu to import contacts from a number of various programs, such as existing Facebook, Hotmail and AOL accounts.
Contact another Skype user on their computer by clicking on his name in the "Contacts" panel on the left side of the Skype interface. This will bring up a number of options in the right-hand panel of the Skype interface. Click on the green button that says "Call" to make a voice call to this person's Skype account. Click on the green button that says "Video Call" to make a video call to this person's Skype account. Type an instant message into the text box at the bottom of the Skype interface to start an IM conversation with this person.
Call a land line or cell phone from Skype by clicking on the "Call Phones" button on the bottom left of the left-side panel of the Skype interface. This will bring up a large number pad in the right-hand panel of the interface, but you need Skype Credit in order to call.
Click on the "Buy Skype Credit" in the small box on the far right of the right-hand Skype interface panel. This takes you to a secure page. Follow the prompts to enter your billing address and credit card number, and your Skype Credit will be loaded. Go back to the "Call Phones" page and enter the phone number you wish to call, then press the large green button that says "Call."

Cannot get skype camera to come on on an existing account


I can't get my webcam to work

1. Check that your webcam is switched on and plugged into your computer

2. A webcam can only be used by one application at a time, so make sure you don't have any other applications open that are accessing the webcam, e.g. other instant messaging applications or even some websites.

3. Problems with video are often caused by driver issues. A driver is the program you install with the webcam which makes the webcam work with your computer (some webcams use preinstalled drivers so you may not have had to install one). Make sure you have the latest driver installed. You can download and install the most recent drivers from the webcam manufacturer's website.

To test your webcam go to the Skype menu > Preferences > Video and tick the box Enable Skype Video. When Skype is able to use your webcam, you will see a video preview of yourself.

Hi, i have just installed my Skype and have bought a Logitech Webcam, have done the Skype check etc but I cannot get audio when I am on a video call? We can see each other and I can hear the othe rperson...


Hi Bronwyn,

What you need to do is to open Skype and go into the Preferences or Options and select Audio. There is a drop down menu to select what audio (microphone) you want to use. There should be a selection there for the Logitech webcam. (Most webcams have a mic in them.)

The other option would be to get an external microphone and connect it to the proper connector on the front or back of your computer and select it from the menu.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I can sign onto skyp, but none of my friends appear on, however, I called my friend and he was on skype and he can see other people, yet I cannot see anyone. What should I do?


Search your email contacts to see who's on Skype:

Click the Directory tab and click the link See friends who are already on Skype.
You'll see an Add contacts screen.
friends_on_skype.png

Under Check your email contacts, click in the checkbox(es) beside the email accounts you have.
If you have a Yahoo account, type in your username and password then click Search email contacts.
Skype uses your Yahoo login to check if your contacts are on Skype - it never saves it, ever.

Wait for Skype to search your contacts.
If Skype finds a match, it will list the friends who also use Skype.

Click in the checkbox beside the people you want to talk to on Skype.
Then click Add contact.

Write an introduction message so they know who you are.
Click OK to send. Depending on their security, you can IM them. When they accept your invitation, you will be able to see when they are online and call them, too.
Add a specific person:

Click the Directory tab and go to Find people.

Click in the box and type in their name, email address or Skype Name.
Click Search. Wait for Skype to search.

In the list, find the person you're looking for. Check details like location and click this icon info_16x16_white.png to double check it's them.
Click on them, then click Add contact. This will open a Say hello window.

Click in the message box and type an introduction message so they know who you are.
Click OK to send. When they accept your invitation, you will be able to see when they are online and call them, too.
Add a phone or mobile number:

Click New and choose New Contact.

Find the link Save a phone number in your contact list.
Click on it. This opens an Add a contact window.
add_phonenr_as_contact.png

In this window, enter the person's name, select Home, Office, Mobile or the other options from the dropdown list, then click on the flag to choose the country they are in.
Click in the box beside the flag and type in the phone number.

Check it. If it's correct, click Save phone number.
This saves the number in your Contact list.
