There are volume controls on your computer to set this up make sure the speakers are plugged in to a power source and the jack that connects to the computer is in the audio out port. (probably already have this done)

The next step is to look at the right hand side of the screen towards the bottom (windows operating system) and there should be a speaker there. left click on this once and it should bring up a sliding bar. turn your speakers low so that it does not startle you and Slide this all the way up. Now you need to slowly adjust the speakers volume till you have the desired level of sound.

Mic


Before you can set your mic as default in any chat program you have to make it default on your computer first. Especially if you have a laptop where you will now have multiple choice for mics
Vista audio set-up
BODY,.aolmailheader {font-size:10pt; color:black; font-family:Arial;} a.aolmailheader:link {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:visited {color:magenta; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:active {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:hover {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} TEST SPEAKERS Right click on speaker icon in System Tray Select "Playback Devices" The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible Right click on the volume graph and click "Test" Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC Click "Recording" tab. Set required mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties" In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click OK
Click "Levels" tab and set sliders to 100% ( adjust to suit later) Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays
Restart computer
Retest

When you go into a program to use your mic you will have to tell that program which mic is default

Re-start Computer.

CONFIGURE TO MSN

Re-boot the webcam by unplugging and plugging it back in again - Its always good practice to do this before you open MSN. If you have been using your webcam in another program, it can remain hooked up to the old program and you will get an error message " Unable to find webcam or being used elsewhere"

Audio CD sound Prob


Various conditions may cause this problem. To troubleshoot, check the following:Microsoft Volume Control or your mixer program mute options and volume sliders. 
Connect headphones to the stereo phone jack on your CD-ROM drive’s front panel; adjust the volume control settings on the drive. If there is sound from your headphones, check the CD audio cable connection from the CD-ROM drive to the audio card. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Joystick port is not working 
To troubleshoot, check the following:
The audio card joystick port conflicts with another joystick port in the system. Disable the audio card joystick port, and use the system’s joystick port. 
The joystick drivers, MSJSTICK.DRV and VJOYD.VXD, may not be installed. Uninstall the joystick, then reinstall to load the drivers. The drivers should come with the driver CD or floppy diskette with your sound card.
Computer hangs or restarts during installation
A hardware conflict may cause the computer to hang or restart during the installation procedure. Check the following to resolve the conflict:
A hardware conflict with another device in your system. 
Previously installed sound card hardware or software needs to be removed. 
The audio card is not seated in the slot properly. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices.
Resolving hardware conflicts
Hardware conflicts occur when two or more devices contend for the same resources. Conflicts between your audio card and another device may occur regarding the I/O address, IRQ line, or DMA channel:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. In the Device Manager, a plus sign(+) represents an expandable list of items. A minus sign (-) represents an expanded list. A circled exclamation mark denotes a conflict. 
Double-click Sound, video, game controllers. A list of multimedia devices appears. 
Select your audio card. 
Choose the Propertis button. 
Click the Resources tab. 
Uncheck the Use automatic settings option. 
Change "Settings based on:" if alternate settings are available. 
Determine the conflict by reviewing the "Conflicting device list".
Select the conflicting item in the "Resource Settings" list. 
Click the Change Settings button. 
Use the mouse to select a new setting. 
Select OK to close each of the properties windows, and restart your computer.
Audio card is not automatically detected
To manually configure your audio card for Windows 95/98:
Click "Start" on the taskbar, and select Settings from the Start menu. 
Select Control Panel. The Control Panel group appears. 
Double-click the Add New Hardware icon. The Add New Hardware Wizard dialog appears. 
Select Next to continue. 
Choose Yes to have Windows search for new hardware, then select Next 
Select Next to continue. 
Select Finish, and follow the prompts to complete the new hardware installation.
CD does not automatically run when you insert it in the drive
To enable the "Audio insert notification" feature:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. A list of devices appears. 
Double-click CD-ROM, and select your CD-ROM drive. 
Choose the Properties button. The CD-ROM drive properties dialog appears. 
Choose the Settings tab. 
Click the "Auto insert notification" option to enable. 
Select OK until all Properties dialogs are closed, and restart Windows for the changes to take effect.
No sound is heard from speakers
Verify the following:
Check the Microsoft Volume Control or the Audio Mixer Program mute options and volume sliders. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Check the volume control and power connection of the speakers, if they are amplified. (Refer to the speakers documentation for detailed information). 
Ensure a hardware conflict does not exist between your audio card and another device in your system. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices. If the device is a display card, upgrade the display card drivers, or set the card to the default Windows VGA mode.
If you are experiencing no sound only during audio CD playback, see "No sound is heard from audio (music) CDs" above.

Static sounds are heard in wave files
Check to see if the static sounds are heard in all wave files. If the difficulty occurs only with certain games, refer to the software manufacturer’s documentation. To troubleshoot static sounds heard in all wave files:
Try different resource settings for the audio card, or set the card to use low DMA. 
Move the audio card to another PCI slot. Feedback from the power supply or another device may be responsible.
