This may just be in the sound controls or the sound driver. Check the sound settings, I've had instances where a device that uses the sound controller turns the sound down or mutes it upon install. If the sound settings are good, the uninstall the sound drivers from the device manager, then reboot. It will find the hardware and reinstall the drivers. Then check the sound settings again. If you still don't have sound, uninstall the webcam and check for sound or go through the process again. If you have sound then try the cam install again. If the sound cuts out again, then there's a conflict and you need a different cam. If you can't get any sound back during any of this, then have the sound card checked by a tech before replacing.

No,unless you want to upgrade your current soundcard i suggest continuing using your current one ..
Your problem is driver related,try installing your sound card drivers again .. if that doesn`t help you could uninstall your webcam drivers,it`s a software related problem so there`s no need for you to buy a new soundcard

Have bought a Braven wireless speaker (bluetooth) for my QT 5500. It sounds great when plugged into laptop but can't seem to get bluetooth to work. Will I have to buy a dongle


All depends, Does your QT 5500 have bluetooth Adapter? Bluetooth Software? I looked at the specs, I don't see Bluetooth listed, but doesn't mean you don't have it. In Device Manager, is Bluetooth Listed?

Webcam not working


Hi,

Please be informed that any hardware device needs a driver software to run within a PC, and the driver software depends on the Hardware Make/Model and the Operating System software you are using in your PC to operate it.You will get the Driver software of any hardware within the CD provided with the hardware part at the time of its purchase. The hardware may be an entire PC,Laptop,VGA card, sound card, LAN card,webcam,printers,scanners etc.

If you do not have the CD or misplaced it somewhere then you need to download the driver software to get going. Thus you need to know all the above information to get the exact software your PC needs. As you have not mentioned the make of the webcam you are using, i am unable to give you the direct download link.

However you can download the same by just visiting the company website's download section that manufactured the product.

Chrystal Eye webcam camera not found


Sounds like the webcam is broken if you've installed the drivers and it still does not work.

Buy a Microsoft Life Cam from Walmart and make your life easier. It plugs into your usb port and it has Auto Focus and built in microphone. It costs less than $35. It comes with software and drivers.

Below is a link to the webcam.

After i installed windows seven speaker is not working in lenovo y410 laptop


this a OS issue from Microsoft, you sound card IRQ has been forzen by the OS so it will not alow any data move to the sound card.
try these.
go to start/run/type services.msc/ go to Windows Audio/check to c if the services are started.
else try to connect a USB audio adaptor (buy on ebay for 1$) and try connecting an external speakers to the sound out jack on the USB equipment
if that works then that should solve your problem for the time being till Microsoft think some solution

You should be able to forwards it through your Laptop speakers.
Windows Live "Tools > Audio and Video setup > select your webcam > Select you speakers and your mic"

Change them to your Webcam and sound card and your done.

Accessories for laptop...Dell Inspiron 1100. sound card, microphone and speakers


No, you'll have to buy a microphone and plug it into the microphone jack on the chassis.

If you buy a webcam, many have a built-in microphone in the webcam.
