Problems with the mic picking up the fan

I just bought this detachable laptop. When I go on skype there is this horrible whirring sound on the receiving end that I can't hear but the other side can hear constantly. They say it sounds like the mic is picking up the fan. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone know how to fix it? The only partial solution is to turn down my mic.... but it is not an ideal fix.

If you put the screen in contact with a desktop, the mic WILL pick up the sound of the fan. Leave the screen attached to the laptop

Unfortunately, even though the laptop is only 4 mths. old, sounds like the bearings in the fan are going out. I would have it replaced. If the fan fails, your processor will overheat and that could be problematic.

It sounds like you just need to choose the default audi input device. You can do this by going to the control panel.

Start Menu > Control Panel > Sound
http://i298.photobucket.com/albums/mm260/mshockey89/Tech%20Support/ControlPanelSound.jpg

Once you get there just go to the recordings tab, select the device you want to use and hit "Set Default" after that you can hit properties and it should show you which jake it pertains too.

How do i get my mic to work on my Samsung 350V 15.6 Inch 6GB 500GB Laptop


Go to control panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Recording.

If you can see your microphone in the list Right-Click and select "Make default device"

Once you've done this Type "Sound recorder" and see if you can record your voice using it now. If you can and the Mic still doesn't work with skype, it is a skype issue; so have a look through there.

There is a horrible echo whenever i try to record and then there's a loud noice that sounds like a very high-pitched whistle and i don't know what to do.


This type of audio feedback loop can happen on any mic if you are playing back audio at a loud volume on speakers that are close to the mic while the mic is on - which tends to happen on Skype calls. Try lowering your speaker volume or using headphones to hear the audio, then speak into mic, and the feedback should be reduced.

Please help me


You need to check if the mic/s is working?
Are you certain the Logitech webcam has a built-in mic?
To check if the mic works go to Start - All programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and test record your voice and play back to check, also try it with the laptop's built-in mic (if it has one) and the Logitech mic.
If both mics work then you have a choice of which one you can use in Skype, most likely the best one would be the Logitech one.

You need to configure your audio settings in Skype.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Select Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.

If you still have problems get back to me with all details and error messages.

Make sure you have not started your WEB cam.
Start Skype then click on Tools - then Options - Audio Settings then select your Microphone.
Then click on Video settings - then select your webcam, your image should now appear.
Select your Receive and Show video options - suggest you use
Only people in my contact list
Click SAVE (your settings)
To add people to your Contact list - Click on Contacts (at the top) - then New Contact and follow the instructions.
You can also test your Skype by click on Echo / Sound Test Service.

If you still have problems, get back to me.
Have fun

I bout a microphone at Target. The name is 'PC Microphone with Detachable Laptop Mic' and it is from General Electris. It says it is supposed to work on Vista, Mac, Linux and Messengers, such as Yahoo, MSN...


Be sure mic is plug in the right input (the pink one).
Then open sound properties (in vista search for sound in startup menu) and then configure and test your mic in the recording tab.
