Skype also changes some settings around. Something about preferring application settings or something -- I forget. It's under "Sound" in Control Panel though. Perhaps that's what happened? Was this the very first call you ever made?
Could you help me with upgrading my motherboards drivers? I dont have a sound card.
Where can I find out what motherboard I have?
You can also download CPU-Z and give us a picture of the "General" tab which should be enough if I recall correctly. It's been awhile since I've used it.
If you can give me that information then I can link you to the manufacturers website (Not HP Dell etc... more like realtek.com etc)
No, I don't recommend he downloads it from the manufacturer's website. It's generally not on the re-seller's website for a reason. I recall using AMD and nVidia drivers (latest, mobile version) on my laptop and a restart caused bluescreens. So I went to the manufacturer's website and downloaded their version, no bluescreen. It was the result of the developers on the video card driver's end in which they basically made it for the latest video cards up to a certain point (which I believe is a marketing scheme to force people to buy newer cards).
If they don't have it on their website, it's 85% of the time -- it won't work properly with the hardware you have in your laptop, 14% of the time they're still developing it or 1% of the time they forgot about it.
