Q: Lenovo T420. I can't receive voice in FB chat.

I just got a refurbished Lenovo PC-Thinkpad T420. I think my 420 is stoned. When I try to face chat (or whatever you call it) I can't hear them but they can hear me. Where do I go on my device to check to see if something is wrong with receiving voice?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Basically, whenever someone sends me a voice clip, I can hear the sound perfectly. No added noises, only what the person inputs themselves.

However, when speaking directly with someone (voice chat, video chat), the sound, their voices, everything I hear from them is very static-y and buzzy.
What makes me even more frustrated is that this problem isn't present in a Skype chat... Skype chats work perfectly, and they're just the same as MSN voice chats...

Please help me out, I would be really greatful.

I have a friend I voice chat with. I have used both TeamSpeak 2 and MSN Voice Chat. We can talk just fine and hear each other. The problem we have is that whenever I talk it echos one time back to my headset after about 3 seconds. My Friend uses a Mic and Headset and I use a Mic and Headset. I am not sure how I am able to hear myself. I believe it is the friends PC because I can hear sound events that take place on their PC like when you receive a message on YAHOO or MSN messenger Any thoughts?

Thanks in Advance

Yeah. I voice chat with a friend on a few different chat programs and it doesn't seem to matter which program we use. We start off ok but after maybe 5 minutes or so I notice we are lagging. She will talk and I will see her mouth moving on her webcam and I will get what she says like 10 secs later. This doesn't happen with everyone I talk with. I am just wondering if there is anything I can do to get rid of the lag between us? We tried skype and the same thing happens. I am just wondering if there is any chat program that will not lag at all? My guess is no but I'll ask anyway lol Thanks.

it depends on your and her network connection.

I just got Vista and xfire's voice chat isn't connecting unless I do port forwarding. I have a wi-fi router and yet I never had to use port forwarding with my other computers!

I checked the windows firewall, and it is allowing xfire, so anyone know whats wrong?

A:voice chat and Vista

Hi Michaelangelo,

it sounds like you will need to forward the port in the wi-fi router. All you need to do is find out the make/model of your router and go to:
http://portforward.com/routers.htm

There you can select the make/model and then select xfire Chat from the list of applications and you'll then see a guide on how to do it with handy screenshots.

Hope that helps....the website is very good for all types of games/applications so is worthwhile bookmarking

I have an old laptop I use when I'm on the road, and would like to use it to call my home computer. I don't have a web cam, so just need it for voice chat. I have tried Skype, and oovoo, but they both seem to break up and lag. I don't think it's a internet connection problem, as it still does it with a good, fast connection. I'm thinking because it's an older laptop (old IBM 570E, running XP) that's why its breaking up.

Are there any chat software programs that would be good for older computers (low resource hungry)?

With MSN sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. With my parents (on XP - I'm on XP too) the sound would only work if one of us uses Windows Messenger instead of MSN Messenger. Then there are the various firewall and router settings.
Easiest solution: install Skype. So far I've never had sound probs with Skype, always works straight away, and with very good quality. Just no cam, but you can talk through Skype whilst seeing each other in MSN

Sorry all, don't know if this is the correct thread to post in (Im using windows XP and saw software related threads.)

Anyway, I'm trying to use Skype on this computer to chat with my friends while we play HoN. Only on this computer I am using right now do I get this problem.

Basically voice chat will work fine for about an hour (sometimes less), and then all of a sudden the voices become choppy and I can't understand what they say.

I doubt this is an internet issue mainly because I can run my game on this computer and set up my laptop right next to me and run skype from that, and my laptop (which is Vista) will run the voice chat perfectly fine with no internet lag on either computers, heck I can even use my other computer at the same time doing something with the internet and still not get any interruptions, so I don't think its a bandwidth problem.

If anyone has any advice for me I'd appreciate it ^_^

Hello folks,

My voicechat works fine in Xfire until I start Novalogicl's Delta Force Black Hawk Down and the DFBHD full screen overlays the Xfire window. In other words. DFBHD is on top of Xfire. Then I can hear others voice chat to me, but they cannot hear me, even when I bring Xfire in-game. I can Alt Tab to the Xfire chat window and my voice inputs will be heard but when I Alt Tab back to DFBHD they can no longer hear me.

Why should my mic inputs cut out when DFBHD is on top? I am guessing it may have something to do with UAC, but what? That is only a guess.

Please help a guy out. A lot of the multiplayer gaming fun is lost when you cannot talk to your teammates.

Not entirely sure where to place this but I'm having a weird issue that nobody seems to have an answer for me with. All Voice Chat programs don't seem to work on my machine. When I run Ventrilo, I get stuck on contacting server forever. Teamspeak errors out without connecting. Even the internal voice chat program inside of World of Warcraft doesn't respond. I have a mic, which works fine to pick up sound, but for whatever reason, none of the voice chat programs seem to function.

I assume the problem is probably related to a router or some such, but I have another computer connected to the router that has none of these issues. In fact, I have at one time or another connected at least 3 other computers to my router and all 3 worked just fine. If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.

For the record I'm running Vista on an Alienware computer, Comcast is my ISP and my router is a wired Dynex DX-E401.

Hello nomad18,
Found this, i hope it is what you are looking for.

The FAQ page is at http://www.bytescribe.com/support/vista.htm , and you'll want to look under "Product Compatibility List" in the section that mentions something called "Export Utility". There is a link there to a TrueSpeech Codec Installer .exe file on bytescribe.com's site itself that I have confirmed is a safe link.

The installer is located here: http://www.bytescribe.com/downloads/...ec_install.exe . Download the .exe, run it, restart Yahoo Messenger, and you should be all set.
