I have the notebook cam and it used to be working perfectly but now, for some reason, the sound is not working. What I mean is that it is not recording sound. Does this mean it is broken and I have to buy a new one? Or is there something I can do to fix it? Thank you very much.

Re: The sound is not working
Sometimes, when you install the driver, you have to enable the sound within the cam software.
Also right click on your speaker icon in taskbar on right hand side and and click properties, then advanced in next window and ensure the Mic volume is not too low or muted.

thats hard cause i have one too and according to my online research we have a web cam on our laptop but for some reason it wont connect and there isnt anything you can download from the internet yet wit windows 7
to put that in cam microphone working, as I have an equal trade mark cam, you need to see on audio settings properties and change the "recording device" to usb device, instaid of the soundcard as is. that means that the sound recording goes to the cam's microphone.
the steps are:
1- rigth mouse click on the speaker next to the clock OPEN VOLUME CONTROL
2- OPTIONS - PROPERTIES - RECORDING
3 - in MIXER/RECORDING DEVICE (where is your soundcard's name) change to USB DEVICE and then OK
4- select MICROPHONE and the close the volume control windows
5- you can test the mic settings in messenger (any version) because of volume and to a clearest voice sound in your pc.
ATTENTION: carefull with the distance between your cam and your sound speakers because of distorcing sound and feedback
