  1. Okayy Hi Everyone...kind of new on here so please bare with me ...bare? bear? :S

    Anyway
    I have an Acer Travelmate 2490 Laptop Computer...
    I refurbished it and it has Windows XP home edition on it...
    Basically, I talk on Skype a lot, but now I cant...
    I downloaded Skype as soon as I could, and the recording was fine, but I couldn't hear...
    So I went and downloaded my sound driver from the acer website.
    I chose not to restart straight away and was using SKype perfectly fine :)
    Then I restarted and the Realtek HD Audio thing in the system tray loaded, and I could hear fine, but couldnt use my Mic. It says its there but isnt detecting sound.
    So I un-installed Realtek, and tried recording on the Windows Sound Recorder, and it worked, but when I installed the sound driver again, it didnt...this is really annoying me because its something I use a lot, so if anyone could help me it would be appreciated...thank youu
    Ashley
