On a PC with external speakers and also a headset with microphone. Windows XP is configured so that standard audio are external speakers and standard microphone is the headset. Skype is configured to use the headset for audio in and out.

This way one can listen to sound from the PC and from MP3 players through external speakers and if there is a call to make or take, this is going through the headset.

But now there is the problem that the noise level for the headset is too low. Increasing volume has no effect on the headset, it only affects the external speaker's volume.

Now the solution: Going to the control panel and opening the sound setting, go to the audio tab. The external speakers are selected as default. Just temporarily select the headset and then click on volume just below. You can now set the volume for the headset, click OK and click cancel (!!!) on the sound control dialog box. This way the external speakers remain as default output.



Skype-->Tools -> Options -->Sound Devices-->audio device/USB/etc Audio Device (do NOT use windows default device)
You can also tick the ring pc speaker check box as this is a good backup to alert you even
if the main speakers are off or turned down.

Windows:
Start-->Control panel-->Sound and Audio devices
On the audio tab set the default playback device to your main soundcard(AC97/Audio-chip/add-on-adapter), etc.
Your installed audio device must be present there.
If not, reinstall audio device


thanks
good luck

Realtek audio drivers problem


Are you using a "headset" with a microphone attached to it?

Here's something to check:
right click the speaker in your taskbar (bottom right of screen)
Click Adjust Audio Properties..
Click Audio Tab
Look at "Sound Recording" box.. click Volume
Make sure the "select" checkbox is set for the input you're using. (usually Internal MIC or just MIC)
Close window, restart your audio program and you're set to go!

Realtek audio device with sound effect menager


First thing is first, there should be 3 audio jack inputs. Line in, Line out and Mic. Make sure you are plugged into the Mic input.

Next if you are running windows XP check to make sure the Microphone volume is not muted and turned up. Do this by going to control panel --> Sound and Audio Devices --> volume tab --> Advanced button. The Microphone volume should be there if not select file --> properties and make sure microphone is checked. It should then appear on the volume controls.

This should take care of it if not what program are you using the mic with?

Microphone


you cannot use any other drivers other than realtek, as this is what you have built into the motherboard, any other driver will not recognise the hardware you have installed. The mic sensitivity is altered by using the volume slider and by ticking the mic boost option in the sound properties

Windows drivers


Windows Xp PC ran Logitek web cam perfectly on Skype until PC was upgraded with MS Media Player 11 now when Skype is selected the PC reboots! Skype recommended updating all drivers. Windows searched and this was done fine until the Realtek Audio driver was replaced when message Code 10 fault came up and there was no audio at all on the PC. Audio returned when I reloaded the Realtek Audio off of the original Gigabyte motherboard CD. Audio for all programs is fine except Skype where reboot problem no exists. Help would be appreciated.
