Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

My wife has just bought an Acer Aspiore One. We are in different countries and communicate via Skype. She has Windows XP on the Acer. She set everything up and downloaded Skype. Now, as soon as we try and connect, I can see her on the built in webcam but I cannot hear her. She can both see and hear me. We have tried everything: separate mic, calls to Skype, changing the audio settings in XP, nothing works. Can you please help?


Answers :

Hi there.
Try this >>>>> right click on the speaker icon in the system tray (bottom right hand side) select open volume control, when the window pops up, click on the options tab and select properties and check all the boxes has a tick in them (including the mic) then save you will now see the microphone properties make sure it not muted and the level is fairly high.
you should now be able to hear each other.
Please post back for any additional advice if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
Have her try to uninstall skype and reinstall it again. Sounds like a program issue. If that doesnt work uninstall it again and have her do a system restore.
