Webcam Audio Getting sound to broadcast with streaming video using a webcam requires a few components to work in unison. Because most webcams do not have a microphone built in, you will need to buy a microphone for your computer or locate your microphone input if you have one built in (some laptops have these). The audio and video are two separate functions and must be diagnosed as such. b> Webcam Software b> If you have a webcam set up correctly and you are streaming video, then you are already halfway there. This details only how to make the sound work, so please refer to an article related to webcam video if you do not have that working already. The webcam audio and video both communicate with your computer via your webcam's software application. Due to this, you will find that there are settings specific to your webcam software for sound. Because there are various software applications that can act as an interface for your webcam, you will want to do a product-specific search on the Internet for your application's settings. Most often you will find the settings for sounds under Tools or Settings, then choosing Options or Preferences. Regardless of the application that you are using to broadcast your webcam video, you will need to ensure that your microphone is plugged into the "Microphone In" jack on your computer or laptop. The microphone input jack is commonly colored pink. b> Microphone Connection b> With your microphone plugged into the "Microphone In" audio jack, test the audio inside your webcam's software application. Most webcam applications allow you test your microphone by reading a sentence and watching a graph move as you speak. If you see this happening, then you have correctly hooked up your microphone. If you have a Windows PC you should also see if your computer recognizes your microphone by clicking on "Start" > "Settings" > "Control Panel" > "Sounds and Audio Devices." Under the "Audio" tab you will find a section for "Sound Recording." From there you can select or change your "Default Device." b> Hardware Troubleshooting b> In the event that your microphone is not recognized by your computer, continue hardware troubleshooting by contacting your computer's support staff. With a properly connected microphone and some minor adjustments in your webcam's software application, you should be broadcasting audio with your video in no time. Hope this helps.

Does your sound card work? Did you run the sound test in SKYPE? In the options section, click on Sound Devices and select Make a Test sound. If that works, click on Make a test call.

DirectSound test results: Failure at step 19 (User verification of software): HRESULT = 0x00000000 (error code)


Hi,
Run the dell diagnostics on the sound card .
1. Restart your computer
2. tap on the f12 key slowly five times
3. select the option Boot to utility partision or diagnostics
4.select dell 32 bit diagnostics
5. Select customer test and test sound

If the test pass, try system restore , probably the problem is with the sound card drivers

if the sound test fails , shutdown the system again and remove the cmos battery and start the system without it once.Check sound again .


Thanks

My speakers do not work anymore in my inspiron 2200


If you press Fn while powering the system on it should enter diagnostic mode. It will perform some memory tests and then present a video test screen at which point it plays sound through the speakers. If you here this sound, then your hardware is functioning and it is a software problem. There are USB sound cards available - note: you would need external speakers as well.

No sound from it.


I guess it was working all along, but simply would not respond to the test sound from my Onyko. But when I put in a DVD it is definitely putting out sound. So I don't know why it will not respond to the test sound because all the other speakers respond to the test sound. ???
Thanks.

Unusable signal prompt on video input


be sure to cycle thru the input selections-- either w/Remote (input button), or channel +/- on the panel. my truflat 26" hd set has side/front/video1 video2 inputs, yours may have more or less. also, be sure you've plugged into an INPUT set, not an OUTPUT set. Does sound work otherwise on this set? If not, maybe interal speakers (menu setting) is set to off/not checked.

And on your PS3--goto the settings menu, sound outputs, make sure you select A/V connector and analog sound. The ps3 cable can become sloppy too, wiggle/check/reseat or try another cabe (usually video is touchy more than the sound though)

If you KNOW you've got the right input selected and the PS3 is setup properly, do you have another device with audio output to test on the TV? a notebook computer, walkman, cd player--anything that has rca outputs for sound--quick swap the cables to the new 'test' device-- if sound is OK with test device, either PS3 setting or cable is bad/wrong. if no sound from test device on TV either the tv is not using proper inputs, or is damaged, or the test device is not properly configured. If you have another input receiving device to test the ps3 output sound, like the LINE INPUT on a notebook computer, or a boombox with Aux inputs, test the PS3 sound output too.
