Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
I have a Dell 1525 laptop; how can I turn down the volume when I have the webcam on? It's distorted. Thank you.
If you are running Windows XP or VISTA, "right click" the speaker icon in the lower right part of your desktop. It is on the right side of the taskbar. Go to "Open Volume Mixer" where it should have individual sliders for "Microphone" "Master Volume" "Line In" etc. Try lowering the "Microphone" or "Line In" volumes to a better level. You'll know which one to move if you try to speak or make any sound into the microphone of the device you want to adjust, you'll see an indicator bar next to the slider move, depending on how loud you speak. Oh, make sure the program you are trying to run with the cam is on and the cam is up and running.
If you have Realtek HD Audio like I have, there will be 2 speaker icons in the same taskbar, one red, one silver/gray. If you have that, then use the red one (Realtek) and go to sound manager. Open the tab of the device you want to adjust and do the same thing, adjust the one that is giving you problems. Here there will be 2 sliders, one for playback and one for recording. Try the playback first or mute it completely, that should help.
If you are still having problems, reply with a comment in this thread so I can find it easier. I hope I could help you get started. Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!
