Hi i have a dell vostro 1000 which says when i try and use skype that i need a sound card, please can you tell me what is the quickest way to fix this? can i download something? Thanks


Can you get sound otherwise, for example playing a CD?

If so, all you need to do is open Skype.

Go to Tools>Options>Audio Settings.

There is a drop down menu for speakers. See if there is another option other than the one is showing and try it.

Also, note where the slider is on the volume and move it to the right if needed.

Finally, make sure your main sound is not muted. Probably not, but just thought I would throw that in.

If you have no sound on your computer at all, your sound driver is probably corrupt. You will need to reinstall it. You can find the driver here:

Skype microphone

When you are installing the skype software, there comes a time when skype will offer you the option to test your hardware. Here you will try out the speakers and mic, and skype will tell you if they are in skype accepted order.
My friend actually installed it not too long ago, and after the install, I saw that skype gave him the option to make a test call right on the program interface window. We used it, and it made a call to a skype computer voice which advised us that if we could hear her talking, then our speakers are fine, and to now go ahead and speak into our mic, if the mic is working we will be able to hear what we just said into it.
That was a great little way to make sure our speakers and mic were in fact working, and they were.
Try that out on your pc and your friend's pc to test components individually. If you are unable to find the test call option, or the option to test components, you can uninstall skype and reinstall the latest version, which may not be a bad idea to preclude any other weird problems which may be at fault.
Hope that helps.

Computer Sound Sporadically Cuts Out

i would advise trying the sound card in a different computer. it may not be possible for you, but maybe you have a friend that will let you try it on their computer. also, can you make the problem come and go by wiggling the connection? on my computer i have to have the wire just right or i lose the left speaker. i think you can solve this without having to reformat. what about headphones? do they work when plugged into the headphone jack?
