Skype not working


Sir,

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

http://support.skype.com/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=questiondetails&_i=35

Also Check........


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

How to increasde the increase the voluem, whenever i shoot videos and while playing the videos the volume is very low. i check and increased the volume but its same volume is coming. and i dont know t


Recording volume on your camera is not controlled by the Volume setting on the camera. The volume setting is for playback volume.
If your recording volume is low, then it has to do with the microphone. Either move closer to what you are recording, or look into buying an external microphone (if your camera supports it).

I can hear people on msn but people can not hear me


The Dell Inspiron 1501 has a set of internal speakers but doesn't have a built-in microphone. You need to plug an external microphone into the microphone jack on the right side of the notebook as shown below. You can open Messenger and click on the Tools tab then select Audio and video setup. (note as there is no built-in webcam, it will just be an audio setup). You may decide later to add a USB webcam with a built-in microphone in which case the plug-in external microphone will no longer be required.

Hi. i am a regular user of google talk..but since one week i cant talk properly thru google talk.i caould hear from the other end..but they can hear only my broken voice.my head phones work fine with...


Make sure the volume for your microphone is turned on. Here's how:
  1. Click the 'Start' menu in your taskbar, and highlight 'Settings.'
  2. Select 'Control Panel.'
  3. Locate 'Sounds and Audio Devices' in the Control Panel, and double-click the icon.
  4. Open the 'Volume' tab, and click 'Advanced...' in the 'Device volume' section.
  5. Look for 'Microphone' in the 'Volume Control' box that opens, and make sure your microphone is enabled and the volume is high enough.
  6. Close the 'Volume Control' box, and then click 'OK.'
If you're using an external microphone, and the volume is set properly, check that the device is securely connected to your computer.
And if that doesn't solve the problem, make sure your microphone of choice is selected in the 'Output - speakers or headset' drop-down menu in the 'Audio' section of your Google Talk Settings.

Cheers!!

I skpe using my Asus, and my microphone does not work.The other party can't me...how do I solve this please


Hi

Are you sure that this laptop has a build in microphone? or are you using a external microphone?

in either case the most likely problem is that the skype sound settings on the input are wrong.

open skype, tools, options, then the audio settings page.
On the microphone, try all the possible options offered and see if it detects your voice, you can also try calling the skype test number / echo123.

When you see the volume bar light up green like this as you speak or tap the microphone its working.

If you are using a external microphone, are you sure you have it on the right slot? Try the other plugs on the laptop and then go over the options again and see if you get sound.

You should also check from volume control that the microphone is not muted.

To check that open up start -> control panel -> sounds -> recording -> select the microphone and click properties -> check the levels tap and make sure its not muted and its turned up to full volume.

also some microphones have a on off switch on the wire, make sure its turned on.

By now you should be able to talk on skype.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks,
Ekse

Check first if your sound card is working properly.

My Computer >> Right click...Properties >> hardware >> Device manager >> Sound

Then go to Start >> Control Panel >> Sound and Audio Devices .........hit ADVANCED

one dialog appears MASTER VOLUME >> Go to OPTIONS >> Then PROPERTIES..........

CHECK the MICROPHONE...........Hit OK.............

This will be fixing your problem (if your sound card is working well)
