Problem Solving 2 - Volume on Your Computer

There is also another small problem that you may need to solve on your computer once you have installed the software and that is the computer volume settings. We will fix this now. The reason this happens if you are using a USB Skype phone is that the software installs its own default settings on your computer that sometimes conflicts with your current settings. Do not worry about this - it is very quick and easy to fix.

Go to the control panel on your computer, you can find this by clicking on your start button (bottom left hand corner) and looking at the menu options available...

its on the right hand column, click on this and a new page will appear, look for Sounds and Audio Devices and click on this icon which I have highlighted below...

Once you have clicked on the Sounds and Audio Devices Icon, you will have a new box that will appear...

Now click on the audio tab (the tab in the middle of new box that has opened)

you will see various different settings inside a few boxes.

If you look at the picture above you will see that the Sound playback - default device setting is on "USB Audio Device" ( look in the 1st box), and my Sound recording - default device is also on "USB Audio Device" ( look in the 2nd box).

What has happened is that when I installed the Skype software to my computer it altered my original settings. The USB Audio device is actually my Skype phone. I do not want all my sound coming through my Skype phone... I wish for my sound to come through my computer speakers. So I will change these settings now...

All you have to do is Click on the top two menu boxes and select your original sound card settings, like below...

 I am now selecting my soundcard, which is called NVIDIA(R)nForce(TM)Audio in the top two boxes.

How do I know that this is my sound cards name ? Because it has the writing of Audio at the end of the word. The only other option available is Modem #0 Line Playback, which is definitely not my Soundcard. So now I will correct both boxes and select my soundcards name (NVIDIA(R)nForce(TM)Audio) to go in each box...

All you have to do to update the settings, is to click apply then click okay

WELL DONE!!!

Alternatively... instead of using a Skype phone to communicate, you can use a computer microphone. Computer microphones can also be bought from eBay, Computer shops and general stores etc. When using a microphone You will speak to your friends via your microphone and hear them speaking through your computer speakers.
