Question about Intel Frontier Design Dakota 24-Bit PCI Soundcard Sound Card

1 Answer

No sound with a headset

I'm trying to help an HP owner in British Columbia (who is not overly familiar with her computer) ... so that we can SKYPE back and forth and participate in a conference call next week.
She bought a new headset at a nearby store ... and can not get noise through it at all.... together now (via phone) ... we've checked options -- but none of them have worked through her headset .... she's used both the front and back ports ...
Is there something special that she needs to do .... to automatically have her headset work??

    OK then. Restart your computer and while the start up screen is displayed, press F2. This will show the system bios and you''ll want to make sure that your sound card is enabled. If not, change from disabled to enable. Continue the boot process and click on "Start, then Control panel, then Performance and Maintenance, then System, then on the System properties menu, select Hardware. Go to device manager and make sure your audio card is enabled there, too. This should clear the problem....accordianman

I live in Saskatchewan Canada and can send Faxes to British Columbia, but I cannot recieve from there.

Make sure whoever sends you the fax is using the full fax number - if that isn't the case, I would call your phone company to make sure your fax line is capable of receiving long distance calls.

No sound from my Logitech headset when on SKYPE

Maybe you need to select which Audio device you are using within Skype. It the Settings under Audio you should be able to select the default audio device that Skype talks to. If you set it to the USB headset, it might work properly.
