Question about Acer Ferrari 4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Sound Input problems

My acer 8100 travelmate does not seem to work with skype. Sound output is not bad, but input is terrible. Drops my skype connection after 30 seconds. All other pc's run fine on same connection. Everyone I connect with tells me it sounds like my head is in a tin can. Mic is good quality and works well on other systems. I have adjusted all other settings to boost mic etc.

What you have to do is go to your speaker volume icon in the taskbar, right click and go to open volume control and click mute microphone. If mic does not show click Advanced. This dissables the onboard mic but allows the use of your external microphone, rectifying the tinny sound.
