Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Hello, when i try to chat using YM or Windows Messenger on my Acer Extenza 4620Z running Vista, I can hear the other people but they cannot hear me. Can you please help with this. Is my microphone (inbuilt) messed up totally?


Answers :

Make sure you dont have the mic muted on the sound controls through control panel. Also both of these programs have preferences and you might need to check that your internal mic is selected as the input device.
