Funny that you brought up the service pack 3. When I used it once and let it be downloaded, it totally disabled my computer to the point that I had to re-install windows XP Home. What is the solution? For me it was the complete and total hard format. This means that I had to buy and add to my arsenol, the hard erase system called "Killdisk". Even though what I used took everything to a zero level, I am sure that after the third time, there was not left even the slight amount of signal. Then I started with installation of the Windows XP Home, antivirus from avast and all the other programs, in drive "C:", which before running them, I installed them in drive "D". Another software I needed and I have it now for years, is a "Partition Commander". The "F-Disk" that comes with win xp, I find it inadequate and combersome. Lots of people prefer the Magic Partition, but I find the Commander to be most convenient for me. After the hard erase, I ran the Partition Commander and I partitioned the 80GB hard disk into smaller partitions. C @ 20GB, D @ 15GB and three more E,F and G at 15GB each. In this way, if I ever have a problem I will not have to do all this work all over. You have to be careful fooling around with unknown to you equipment. Before you did anything with the computer, you should have read others talking about the SP3. Unfortunately, neither you nor I did pay any attention and took it forgranted that Microsoft thoroughly tests all their products. I tried to make it as simple as possible, but feel free to get in touch with me in case of trouble. Sometimes, it is possible to lose the video driver or the audio driver. In that case, get in touch and we will download you what you need. Do you feel better now? <arzobconst@yahoo.com> My name is Constanti.

Skype not working


Sir,

Click this link for more information........

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

Make sure the webcam mic is set as default - this is especially important if you have a laptop with a mic or use a headset with mic

Typical audio set up

Laptop with mic x webcam with mic x Vista x Yahoo Messenger 10

If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.

Pc has no sound. Volume control says no mixer device installed.


This sound like a operating system corruption. You will have to install the windows disc and try to do a repair of the system. If the repair fails and you cannot get the sound to work. You will have to reinstall windows. These corruptions happen due to downloading programs that do not work well with the operating system. You can try removing all the new programs, you installed before the problem appeared.See if that returns the sound operation to normal. If not you can also try a restore windows to a earlier set-up with the windows restore point. If Have done a back-up of your system.This may also restore the sound to normal operation. If all this fails you probably have a bad motherboard that has lost the functional operation of the sound circuits. You may need a new motherboard. If this is the problem. You can go on the motherboard maker website and look into the frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections and see if this is a known problem with you motherboard model. See if they have a solution. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

My mic doesnt work


to put that in cam microphone working, you need to see on audio settings properties and change the "recording device" to usb audio device, instaid of the soundcard as is. That means that the sound recording will be from the cam's microphone.
The steps are:
1- rigth mouse click on the speaker next to the clock OPEN VOLUME CONTROL
2- OPTIONS - PROPERTIES - RECORDING
3 - in MIXER/RECORDING DEVICE (where is your soundcard's name) change to USB AUDIO DEVICE and then OK
4- In the remaining volume control window, select MICROPHONE and then close all the volume control windows
5- you can test the mic settings in messenger (any version) because of volume and to a clearest voice sound in your pc.

ATTENTION: carefull with the distance between your cam and your sound speakers because of distorcing sound and feedback
