No Sound On Video Call Using Skype


I was on a video call with a friend who lives abroad. He had suggested me to use skype instead of ringing him because it is free. Needless to say, i was quiet fascinated by skype and its free call, video call service. I have a hp laptop home entertainment. After i signed up with skype, i accepted his invitation via skype. He rang me and i could see him, he could see me. But, when i spoke, he could not hear me. I was feeling so frustrated and helpless. I tried everything possible (as far as my tech capabilities go) but could not find a solution.

Headset Sound Is Not Detected On Skype Phone Call

I'm using a logitech headset with microphone to answer and make skype phone calls. I hear them. Why cant they hear me?I have run all set up options from skype. As for the logitech equipment is concerned i believe it is "plug in and it is ready to use", there was no program to load nor was there an instruction manual.

There is a slider on/off switch for the microphone. I am not sure that microphone options and volume {specially for a headset with a microphone} from inside my dell studio 1555 are set up correctly. I have inquired on this matter via online chat and allowed remote access to dell representative to assist me. Nothing has worked. When i started skype 2 months ago it worked fine.

Not perfect 100% of the time yet good enuf. Now i am not heard at all or barely when i'm in a phone call with headset or without. As of today: 7/1/2010 i can't hear "them" so i don't know if "they" can hear me. So, please tell me how to make my skype phone work through my laptop.

No Sound With Video

It was working yesterday, and today when i woke up i booted my pc and there was no sound all of a sudden. I tried a system restore back to last week and still no sound. I know my speakers work because when i boot my asus g50v laptop the opening is the asus logo and like an explosion (not just a beep). Nothing is muted and you can see it shows that sound is going, but i can not hear it and nothing is coming out of the speakers. See video. Does anyone have any ideas?

Youtube Video Sound Sputters And Slows Down

Sound cut out and online program slow down. Since i installed windows 7 64 bit os, i've now (in the past few days) suddenly encounted sound sputtering and when i watch a yt video, it jerks, sound sputters, and slows down. Yes, i've already tried the 'disable enhancements' routine, deleted both audiodg.exe and wudfhost. Ext files from taskmaster. Still not completely fixed. I left task master open while i ran some online videos on youtube. Something is grabbing 100% of my cpu and i can't see what it is. I have a hp workstation with two 3. 2ghz dual core processors with 8gb of ram, and feel my computer should be doing much better than what i see. Anyone out there have a different solution?

No Sound On Games And Streaming Video Won't Play

I got a laptop computer from hp with windows vista, upgraded to windows 7 when it came out. It used to be that when i'd first turn on my computer, everything worked fine, but when i opened it after only shutting the thing (that is, without shutting down or logging off or anything like that), the sound, games (online and on my computer), and streaming video would not work. So i would just restart my computer and everything would work again. Now restarting isn't working. I can't get any of that to work. What can i do to cure this?

Error With A Call To A C++ Library

I am having trouble identifying the 'program' at boot (after bios boot is ok) that makes an error with a call to a c+ library. Restore was not enough to fix. Any ideas? Is there a way to go through windows 7 startup step-by-step to see when/how the failure occurs? I did a restore but that was not effective. I may have a system image but i am reluctant to go that far back.

2) regarding the system image. Is that able to be incrementally backed up? The first one took about 18 hours.

- There are no obvious symptoms after login but i would like to identify the cause of the error and fix. - New computer running 64 bit win 7. - Issue started after transferring programs from older vista 32 bit computer.

Is Support Call Center Located In India?

Received phone call from india yesterday claiming to ms windows support and reporting to me that all windows systems were having problems in the last 3 days. They reported that the errors from my laptop triggered the call from ms windows support. I requested they send me an email with their contact numbers but haven't received it. My question is do you have windows support based in india call center?

The call quality indicated it probably was based in india but i had alot of trouble understanding both what they were asking for and why they were calling me as i didn't request a call. Suspected it was an attempt to gain access to my pc but didn't bite but thought someone should be aware of this. Background noise sounded like a call center and call distortion sounded like it was an overseas call.

The tech stated that errors my laptop was reporting to ms was the reason they were calling and wanted to give them the error codes i was seeing. I don't know how they got my number but i suspected they were not legitimate so requested an email from them. Now i'm afraid i'll get an email loaded with viruses as i gave them my eamil address.

Remote Procedure Call (rpc) Protocol Error Occurred

My husband got a new laptop with windows 7. I'm trying, unsuccessfully, to get the computer to recognize our iomega hard drive that is connected to our wireless network. The network that it is on is named workgroup. Windows 7 recognizes the hard drive iomega, but when i click on it i get this message. Iomega is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.

Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. A remote procedure call (rpc) protocol error occurred. Any ideas? How do i get it to recognize the workgroup or don't i need it to? I've went to iomega's web page to adjust settings, but this laptop still won't let me access it. I've tried turning of the firewall - that's not it.

Skype Wont Open

I have a dell inspiron 600m laptop with windows 7 - up until a few days ago, i had no trouble accessing skype. The other day, i tried my skype desktop icon, but cannot get it to open - i get a 'user account control' pop-up window which asks me if "i want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer". When i click 'yes', nothing happens.

I have checked my task manager and skype appears in the processes column, but does not show that it is working. My wife's toshiba laptop with windows 7 accesses skype on the same account and has no problem whatsoever - we have used skype this way for a few years with no problem until this past week. Any suggestions?

Skype Program Install Problem

Tried to install skype on a new windows 7 system. Part way through the install, the install routine says that the program wants to make changes to the computer, do you agree yes/no. The query box has the user accounts icon in the top left corner. Click yes, immediately the language dialogue opens starting with czech. Scroll through to english, push button, instantly every thing changes to czech. Retry install routine over & over, always same result.

Skype say to use revo uninstaller. Same problem happens except it flips to cata (catalan?). Tried another uninstaller same problem just a different language. Always with the same dialogue boxes and the same user accounts icon in the top left hand corner.

I know this is weird but it is happening right now four puters here, 3 with skype, one with who knows what?

Skype Internet Phone Compatibility Issues

Hey, i have windows 7, skype 4. 1, and a logitech internet handset mn: f-0590b

In xp and xp mode, i can set up my skype account to forward calls to my phone so that i can answer them from my handset. However, with windows 7, i can only use my handset if i am making outgoing calls.

I've installed xp mode, and again my handset works fine, but i dont want to be tethered to xp mode to use my phone. So, i set up my skype in xp mode, and made a link in the start up menu so i can open skype via the virtual pc. However, my phone, usb connected does not transfer with this setting, and i cannot seem to copy it into the start menu (it says that the software isn't installed). So, i tried installing the xp (and later the vista) drivers for the phone onto windows 7 and using skype via xp mode, but the phone doesn't see skype.

Logitech doesn't offer a win7 driver.

Live Messenger / Skype Wont Connect

Both instant messaging systems say they cant connect to server. Windows live says its my firewall and proxy settings which ive gone through a million times with many other troubleshooting methods. I allowed both through windows firewall, cleared my lan settings (which there weren't any anyway), ran scv/scannow which found no problems.

Following one tho, when running 'regsvr32 softpub.dll initpki.dll wintrust.dll' it states that the module initpki.dll failed to load, specified module could not be found. Would this affect trying to sign in to an instant messaging program? The program itself downloads without a problem, but as soon as i try to sign in or create an account with the actual server, thats where theres problems.

Creative Sb0490 Usb Sound Blaster External Sound Card

My external sound blaster card sb0490 works on my xp machine. When connected to my windows 7 machine almost everything except creative mediasource player gives the error message "the audio device supported by this application is not detected". The mediasouce player works ok.

The driver is usb_w7drv_lb_1_01_0099. The usb bus controller is "usb composite device" using driver file usbccgp.sys version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 (win7_rtm. 090713-1255). An update search confirms this driver software is up to date. The windows 7 compatibility center reports "information coming soon" for this hardware. Has anybody a solution?

Win 7 No Sound - Creative Sound Card

After upgrading to windows 7 i have had no sound. My system says that there is an onboard audio device, sigmatel high definition audio. Which when checking the sound configuration as suggested by another post, it says it has no problems when troubleshooting, and it has sound going to it (as indicated by the sound meter), however no sound. When i switch to the creative sb x-fi sound card, which is the one that i have sound jacks for, there is no sound going to the speakers.

I have tried disabling the integrated sound card (sigma tel) in the bios as well as in the device manger, no luck on any option. I have downloaded the latest drivers for both the sigmatel and the x-fi, with no luck on either occasion.

Sound Blaster X-fi Sound Card Not Detected

My pc is just over a year old and works fine in all respects with visa 32 bit. The sound card is a sound blaster x-fi and 5. 1 speakers, 2 gigs of memory and quad core. I shrunk the drive to create a partition etc and installed windows 7 in the new partition ( installed this whilst in vista and not from a boot sequence. Booting from the dvd hung at the blue screen with no options to continue). Anyway the installation went fine and boots in to windows with no problems. Except the sound card was not detected.

Using the original driver disk does not update anything, i.e. Pointing to it whilst in update driver mode. Installing from the disk fails at the drivers part of installation on 15 or so dll's. After which in the sound section it now says no audio devices are installed. Before the installation there was one item in this secion, a spdif icon. There was no sound though even though this item was present. Btw, onboard sound is de-activated in the bios.

Booting into vista form the option screen and all is working fine. Any ideas would be most welcome. I have one other small problem when i try and run an online game (eq) it throws up an error message saying cannot access memory at 0x00000044 and promptly closes down when the ok box is clicked. Other than this i like windows 7.

No Sound In Ie8 / Sound Quality Issue

For some reason, my computer randomly quits playing sound at all in ie. I can watch youtube silently. No sound on hulu, or any other streaming site. I managed to fix the problem once by uninstalling and reinstalling flash player, but that seems to be unrelated to the actual problem because it's happened again and the solution no longer works. In media player, i get a random crackle every few seconds, just enough to be really frustrating. It's not my speakers: i played the audio through headphones (connected through a separate jack) in order to check. All sound drivers are up-to-date, and the whole system was working fine two days ago. No software changes have been made except for an update to adobe reader.

Sound Drivers Recognised But No Sound

The install is activated and running perfectly except for there being no sound. The drivers say they are installed, and when there should be sound, i can see the volume activity in the volume slider, but nothing is coming out of the speakers or headphone socket. I have soundmax integrated audio driver on my toshiba qosmio laptop. Everything works fine in xp. I hope someone can shed some light as it's very very frustrating.

Recorded Tv No Sound But Live Tv Sound

Whenever i record tv it has about a 90% chance of not recording sound. If i can catch it within the first few minutes of recording i would put it to live tv (where there is sound) and hit record, and then it would record with sound.

I have googled looking for the solution to this, and have tried a few things but nothing is working.
I have just one tuner.
I never had any problems with vista or xp just windows 7!

I think it may have something to do with a show that is recording when the computer comes from sleep mode, say if the computer is being used or is not in sleep mode, it will record the sound, maybe if i had 2 shows recording in succession, the second show would record while the first one wouldn't have sound?

No Sound When Using Sound Blaster Live

I have no issues when using sound blaster live 5. 1 for windows 2000 and windows xp. However, i upgraded windows xp to windows 7, the program couldn't recognize the sound blaster card. Regardless how many times i have downloaded the driver from internet, cd-rom or checking the sound card, there is still no result. I even bought the driver wizard program but it couldn't recognize the sound card either. I hope anyone could give me some suggestions of how to fix this problem.

Cannot Import Video

I have a netbook running windows 7 starter. I am trying to use my new sony handycam and so i downloaded windows live movie maker. I had the old movie maker on my dell with xp and it just crashes and freezes constantly. I thought i would try to do it on the new netbook, but when i try to drag or open a video file, it moves it but has a grey screen with a red round dot and x on it. The clips have the right time length but no video footage or sound. What is wrong? Files are . Mpeg i believe which is supposed to be a supported file.
