Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I installed skype and got it working on my headphones. But, I had to keep switching settings on my computer sound, depending if I was listening to music or talking on the skype. This is a pain and I want to avoid it. I purchased a usb/rj11 jack adapter to use with my land line. Tried to set it up but after installing the driver, didn't get the dialog box like the directions said I would.

There is no way to automatically toggle between the sound device but by indeed going to Control Panel-Sound or right-clicking on the volume icon on system tray and adjusting audio properties like what you've been doing. You may just want to create a shortcut on your desktop to make the toggling a little easier. This has been a limitation since and that no one hasn't found a workaround.

Can't hear caller on Skype


Check you settings in two places for the correct audio out settings:

1. Look up under the System Preferences menu (the Apple pull down menu) the sound icon (looks like a speaker) and click on it to open it. At the top it will show three choices, Sound Effect, Output, Input. The problem you can't hear the Skype caller is likely the Output setting is incorrect. For example, you may have Line Out selected, but you are listing on head phones. Make the device name match what you are using to make sound.
Also check to see that the output volume is not set too low. Move the slider around to increase the volume.

2. Then check your Skype setting.Under Skype>preferences, select Auto/Video. Check to see what is selected under "Speakers: and check again to see the Volume is turned up high enough to hear.

Also make sure you have a good speaker or headphone connection.

You can check to see if you can hear by calling the Skype test call number to record yourself and listen to it. Go the www.skype.com/go/help for more information.

realtech hd is your sound device. go into windows control panel and access the sound settings then navigate to voice settings click the volume button,your mic might be muted. also if you want the headphones to work plug them into the plug that your speakers are using (side-note: mics and head phones never need something installed to work as long as your sound device works and your definitely does work,only when the mic is a special interface like USB do you need to install software and/or drivers)

If you are running Windows 7 you can have audio set up to listen to the mic. I would not recommend this though as there is a slight delay from you talking to it coming out of the headphone. This can cause you to stumble on your words. But solely for testing purposes do this if you use Windows 7:

1. RIght click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your display and select recording devices.

2. Make sure the microphone you use is highlighted blue then click properties button in lower right corner of the window.

3. Click on the listen tab, then check the box that says listen to this device.wdaexodus.png

My speakers wont work suddenly unless I am using my headphones


Make sure in the volume mixer that it is using the right sound device. You most likely have it set to the wrong device output. When you plugged in the headphones in kinda automatically switches, but to use the speakers again you have to do it manually. Just hook up a cheap av receiver to your computer and use this headphone input instead. a 100$ 5.1 av receiver beats any pc speaker system.

Logitech 350 Headphones won't work with Yahoo Chat


Be sure to select your headset when you do the setup.
Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
Hope this helps. Bud
