Hi. Please try this.

Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Manage Audio Devices
On the playback tab, select "speakers" as the default.

When testing sound, please use the headset you are using with skype to make sure that you have a working sound output.

It sounds as if the OS was not installed. Once PC is formated it wipes out the OS. Try running you OS disk (XP,Vista,Win7).
If after the second install you are getting the same Message OS not found now you want to check the harddrive.
F8 on boot Safe mode with command Prompts. and run "chkdsk /r" with out the quotes. This will check your harddrive and repair any bad sectors.

Good luck!

Hello I bought a microphone Philips SBC MD 110,but I don't know to use it on my pc. Its recognized like a device but dthere is no sound.I have windowsm vista OS,please can someone tell me how can i conecct...


Hi, There is never any driver needed when connecting a microphone to your pc or laptop.
Simply connect the 3.5mm jack to the microphone input on the soundcard of your pc.
Check the settings in the volume control settings at:"Playback" when using the microphone during a live presentation etc."Recording" when making a sound recording or using VOIP like Skype, MSN etc.

Note: this may vary depending on your operating system..

hope it helps..

Hello,Can somebody help me solve this problem? Everything works fine except the built-in microphone The only application I have to test the mic is Skype and sound recorder when I try to make a test...


Instead of Skype it will be good to check the sound recorder or else reload the sound drivers of the PC once again.
This must solve teh issue unless the OS has errors or you might have to reinstall once again

I am new to Skype and have registered . I have a Webcam - Microsoft Life Cam VX-3000- and cannot get any sound , using the test facility . Any ideas ? Everything else seems to be working and I have checked...


If you have a laptop it will have a built-in Mic
If you have a webcam with a built in Mic you now have 2 on your computer and you are going to have to determine which one to use (make it 'default')
I would recommend using the webcam mic as default.
You do not say what your pc or OS is so here is the setup for
Laptop x Vista
Set up Audio

Laptop x webcam/mic x Vista

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 ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

Configure to Skype

If you have an earlier OS than Vista you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel

Please check if the sound driver you're installing is compatible / supports the Windows Vista Ultimate OS, or it is for XP or lower version OS, if not, then you have to get the updated Driver of your sound card which is compatible to Windows Vista OS. best regards
