    I had this problem, and this seems to have worked for me:

    Uninstall Logitech camera program and drivers from "Programs and
    Features" in the control panel.
    2) Reboot computer
    3) Go to click on support, download the latest drivers
    installation for your device
    4) Install this version (not the one
    that came on your CD!)
    5) After the driver installs and Logitech
    thinks it's done, there was a Windows alert wanting to install the
    drivers. Important - tell it to locate and install them.
    6) Proceed
    with sound test

    This worked for me.. I was finally able to see my
    camera as a system microphone. The Logitech instructions don't mention
    anything about step 5, but it never worked properly for me until I did

    I also recommend beating it against something hard. Seriously, something is
    loose in these mics. Mine broke and under Skype audio settings I noticed
    when I tapped it hard it showed signs of recording. After a few good
    taps (mostly picking up and setting back on the monitor) it came back to
    life! Good luck ;)


    Take care.

    Ironically, I called Logitech and was told my QuickCam Express has no
    built in microphone. Duh. That's why I coudn't find it. I returned
    the camera. In looking at cams with built in microphones, I'm finding
    they are quite a bit more expensive. --NewCam.

    So check yours if it has?.

    Take care.

Hey guys,

Every review/spec I have read on this cam so far indicates that there is no built in microphone on the Quickcam Express. Here is one of those sites...

If you still have your box that the camera came in, it should tell you for certain if there is a microphone in the product description on the back or side of the box.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you, and good luck.

Audio from my web cam

does your webcam support audio? if so is the pink audio connector plugged in to your microphone jack? Check the volume control to see if the microphone is muted or the volume level is turned down.

I don't think many people have a trouble free web cam, whatever make or model of pc or web cam. I get echo and feed back; if that's wot you mean by static, or do you litterly mean static. Helps to have your volume down a touch and the person who you are speaking to also, especially if it has a built in microphone(sorry, not checked your model), a seperate microphone is best as it's away from any possible speaker feedback from your pc's speakers, or any other clse electrical interference. Hope this relieves it a little.
