In control panel, make sure that the mic is properly configured in audio devices (They don't always get assigned properly) so that the correct device is set for recording.

You can test the mic in sound recorder (Just type sound on the search bar, it should appear in the list)

Failed connection


Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo in the info below. Try installing Skype and it's much better for Chatting with Family and Friends.

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.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype 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 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 see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

When making a video call on windows live messenger, the person I'm talking to can see me but not hear me. I can see and hear them. I have tried my webcam's mic in the "sound recorder" program...


Go to tools in the messenger application and choose Audio video setup - run through the wizard and make sure that as it checks the audio that the right audfio system is being used - i.e. the Audio driver for your Web cam that was installed and not the audio driver that came with your PC as standard.

Also check in control panel for the "Sounds and audio devices" icon and check in there to make sure your Microphone volume is turned up and not muted.

Problem in audio for windows vista


This is a warning message due to improper sentting of your messanger and your net-protocol. Allthough even then you can make your voice-chat without any problem. So dun wrry just ignore the message.
