Question about Gateway 835GM (835GH) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I bought a Skype headset and it worked fine for a while, but when Skype upgraded their software it now blue screens me even if I'm only testing the audio on on Skype. I updated all the XP stuff, but it still won't work. Any ideas? The system also blue screens on Yahoo and other phone type software. I've upgraded the RAM to 2 gig and the video memory as well.

New user with Blue Parrot B250XT headset. Using it on Skype and PC with iogear bluetooth dongle, all seems to be properly configured. Tested the audio quality from the microphone and it is garbled. ...


Hi there,
It seems that there is a physical problem with the microphone of that headset, It rarely happens but it does, even brand new units sometimes would have defects.
In windows there is a sound recorder feature that you can use so you can try recording your voice from the headset and check if it will be garbled.
you can also test the device on another equipment, Pair it on a mobile phone that is bluetooth capable and try calling or receive a call and check if the same result would appear.
If the same happens for all these steps, if you have just bought the headset you would want to bring it back and ask for a replacement unit or a refund and get a different model.
Hope this helps!

Is h350 compatible with windows vista? i try installing one, i easily paired it with my compaq laptop windows vista os without asking any passkey. the problem is it would'nt work. i downloaded a bluetooth...


I've successfully paired this headset with Vista but only for Skype. In Control Panel set the Bluetooth discovery and it should pair OK but then you need to run Skype which will find the headset and ask if you want to use it. The solution is a bit temperamental because the microphone volume is usually either low or there is too much background noise.

Blue screen in Skype


Sounds like the software is looking at a video card
Re-check your settings

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Doesn't work with Skype


Fixed it: the microphone on the headphone was switched off - it's a bit of a design weakness in the Logitech headset: it's easy to unintentionally turn the microphone off while putting the headset on. The lower half of the right headphone's central medallion is a button - indicated by a crossed out microphone icon.

I've bought a logitech headset for my Dell Dimension 8300 and can't seem to get it to connect properly. It had two jacks, not USB.


Hi,
One goes into the green headphone/speaker plug and the other goes into the red 'microphone' hole, or maybe the blue 'line in' hole, but only if that has been set as the 'line in'.
You can change the settings of the audio ports in your soundcard software eg Realtek Mixer.
Test your levels in the Audio/Video Setup of Messenger or in the Audio settings in the Skype 'Options' under Tools.
Hope this helps

Microsoft LifeChat Microphone Headset Doesn't Work Properly


You should take your headset to another computer/location and see if your problem still exists.
That way you can eliminate problems with either your computer hardware or your outgoing internet connection (jitter).
I don't think that the CD will be necessary, since it is a USB device, which contains it's own little sound card and doesn't need any drivers.
If the problem persists and it turns out to be a problem with the headset, I would definitely return/exchange it.

Logictech webcam for laptop has sound but the screen is blue


Check and see if it works within the software. If it does, then the issue is with SKYPE and you will need to contact their tech support for troubleshooting. If it does not work in the Logitech software, then try reinstalling the software after uninstalling it first. Should even that not work, try a clean boot as explained in this article:
