Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

I'm going to guess, though, that your audio drivers are either nor installed or not working. Go to Control Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Device Manager, and look under Sound, video and game controllers acn check if the sound devcie is working properly if not reinstall driver....

Zone 2 vol fix


I'm assuming you mean when you try to turn up the vol on zone 2 it says "zone 2 vol fix" and you want it to be "variable" giving you the control from the remote. Open the GUI menu (Receivers main settings menu) go to (options) select external zone or zone2 then select (Variable) If you have your receiver passing video to your TV it's alot easier to navigate the menu. If you still have problems, post a reply on this thread with your product list including make and model #'s and I can walk you thru the whole process. Hope this helps

No audio output device installed


If the speakers came with your computer check the Support link at the computer manufacturers website. If you bought them separately then you'll need to check the speaker manufacturers website to see if they have a Vista driver available. Hope this helps.

I don't hear any sounds from my computer. I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo laptop with Windows Vista.


Go to start > control panel,
Click on the Sound and Audio device icon. See if it is active and not grayed out. If it is grayed out, it means that your audio drivers are not installed.
If it is grayed out, go to the main window of the control panel > Device Manager > Sound and Audio
There check if there is an red X or yellow exclamation mark on the Audio device.
Right click on the Audio device and on the drop down window, click un-install. then restart the laptop. Check for sound again.
Also put a headset on the line out/spk out port and see if you get sound there. Let me know.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Microphone(MIC)Of head set not working(got removed wrongly)


This usually just gets reinstalled whenever you restart your computer be it Vista or XP. In your case, the drivers for the Microphone probably got deleted. The Microphone driver comes in the package together with the sound card. You'll have to re-install the whole sound card driver to have it start working again. You can do this from the Device Manager. After doing this, the microphone together with the whole sound card drivers should start working again.

No audio device


Hi

Assuming u are using windows OS.
U could goto device manager and check whether your sound drivers are installed under the Sound, Video and Game Controllers. If yes with no problems then goto Control Panel and check your sound playback buttons and see whether the volume control, wave control are up or muted. Also, check your manual whether u have correctly installed the sound driver.
