Morning Pat

Did you have the same problem when using Skype via a headset?

Which port is the phone plugged into? Is it a USB phone?

Regards

David.

So you're only encountering this problem with the new phone, yes?

you could try this;

1. Go to Skype Tools->Options->Sound Devices

2. Uncheck the box "Let Skype adjust my sound device settings", click OK

3. Go to the Windows Control Panel ->Sound and Audio devices->Audio tab

4. There you will see a microphone picture, check that the correct audio device is displayed there( in the dropdown list )and click Volume button under this picture.

5. Windows Recording mixer will open. Move Microphone level slider to the acceptable level.

If you're still having problems let me know.

Regards

David

Play with the recording level untill you get acceptable result.

Dunno if you've tried this but:


Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Sound & Audio Device -> Advanced

and make sure the volume is up for wave/cdplayer etc

No, your CD plays through the Realtek device. The USB device is the Skype phone. The volume of the CD device is controlled by the master volume setting and the CD or wave setting, depending how your CD audio is connected internally.

Do you have the Realtek HD Audio Manager icon in the system tray part of the taskbar (icon looks like a speaker with sound waves coming out of it)? If so, open it and select the MIXER tab and adjust the appropriate controls accordingly.

Hi Pat

What Unexpat said is right. If this doesn't work for you let me know and I'll call you to discuss the problem.

If all else fails I can come out and take a look.

David.
