Can't hear anything using google talk aka gmail talk

Q: Can't hear anything using google talk aka gmail talk

I recently hit upon a bug that has been plaguing me for quite some time and I am sure that I am not the only one that has run into this. I tried to post the bug and its fix to the google help forum but couldn't the topic/thread section was no longer accepting new additions or replies (???).

Moving on. I found that if you have another program running like a movie player (VLC, MPC Star, media player etc... or iTunes, etc...) and try to make a call with google talk you won't hear anything (the other party gets the call though, as I learned, "WHY THE **** DO YOU RING 6 TIMES GRRR....") and have to try the call again and again an it's touch and go as to whether it ever works. Well close any other programs that are running that also output sound and the problem should go away.

Hope this helps someone searching for a possible answer, when I was I couldn't find anything that resembled this one. That is why I am posting it.

Preferred Solution: Can't hear anything using google talk aka gmail talk

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.)


I have gmail email account that work perfectly but the problem when I try to make audio chat in Google talk with this account, I can not hear the other person.

My friend told me to try to open new Gmail account. I did that and now the audio chat is working so the problem is with that account. I don't what happened; I used to use it normally with Google talk. And even now, there seems no problem with receiving email. The only problem is with Google talk audio chat.

Note: I have Windows Vista home Premium OS.

A:gmail account problem with google talk

Since your mike and speakers seem to be working, there is likely a problem with your account settings. Go to settings, chat, and see what is different under voice and video chat and under sound in the two gmail accounts.

Sorry, but the problem is not solved

A:talk through mic hear out of speakers

If you're using a USB mic, tough luck you won't be able to do it with vista, maybe with a thirth party program.

If you're using a mic that is connected to your sound card,
go to the same as you are in your screen above

playback -> Speaker / Headphone (or which ever device is enabled) -> advanced -> Levels -> and simply flop your sound card entry to the highest possible (if it's to loud you make it less hard, but that's quite easy to understand)

I'm using a dutch version of Vista so i might get some words wrong.

How would I disable this? When I talk thru my mic I can hear myself speak thru my speakers. I'm using a X-FI Fatality Champion with Front Panel and using the Front Planel's Line-in/Mic2 input. Also I'm using Windows 7 7600. I've tried both inputs for the mic, the one on the actual sound card (Mic 1) and the front input both make my own voice play thru the speakers. I don't want to hear myself talk.

A:Hear myself thru my speakers when I talk with mic

You need to mute the Microphone in "Playback devices", but leave it for "Recording Devices". The same goes for Windows XP.

How does your desktop connect, are you using a router or modem or what. We need more information to be able to help you.

What operating system does the desktop use and what security programs do you have installed on both your machines, it could be the firewall blocking things or it could be something else.

I am a new member and I have a weird problem with Talk Talk. Moved into new flat and while we are waiting for our internet to be connected(?) our neighbour has told us we can use his Tallk Talk wifi which is unlimited and gave us the necessary code to connect. My wife's Xperia phone connected immediately and works fine on this connection. Her laptop (on Vista) however connected immediately but keeps coming up as Local Access only and won't open any web pages at all. My netbook (which is on XP) also connected immediately and show full connection at 54Mbps but also will not connect to any websites.
To further compound my frustration, both laptops will connect using my t MOBILE dongle and they work fine on that 7.2 Mbps connection. Also another neighbour has BT and both laptops will connect to the openzone from that (using my son'e log in as he is with BT) and open websites through that.
Does anyone have any ideas? I am not really confident enough to start deleting things and down loading new unless I know exactly what to do.

I've been searching everywhere for an answer to this and I haven't been able to find anything helpful yet.

When I hold down push to talk or am talking through voice activation, others can hear themselves speaking. This wasn't an issue until a day ago when I tried reinstalling my Realtek Audio Drivers to get my USB Mic working. (Another issue altogether)

I use the front Microphone and Headphone jacks and also have a stereo in the rear green jack. My Realtek Sound Manager actually has my headphones and speakers as the same playback device, which I prefer because I like being able to play music through my speakers or headset without switching default playback devices.

Even when I reinstall my Realtek audio drivers with only my headphones plugged in, Realtek recognizes they are headphones as the playback device but people still hear themselves when I talk.

My Sound Mixer is disabled, my pink line-in is muted through my Playback. The "Listen" option in my recording device is unchecked.

I feel it has to have something to do with my Realtek settings, but I've tried virtually everything with no results. The worst thing is, I need to be on Ventrilo with someone just to be able to test it.

Can anyone think of any other solution besides reformatting and reinstalling Windows?

Having just purchased a new computer and set up my Talk Talk router, I am having serious issues setting up Outlook Express. I have spoken to Talk Talk for assistance having eventually got through to their 2nd line support but as I have a google mail E Mail address they were less than helpful. I have everything set up as per google mail help centre instructions other than incoming mail server (POP3) which is set as mail.talktalk.net. I can receive E Mails but not send. Everytime I attempt to send I receive the following error:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.googlemail.com', Server: 'mail.talktalk.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I had AVG free edition installed by the manufacturer of the computer prior to receiving it. As a computing novice I am unsure if this a possible problem; could it be?


A:Solved: Outlook Express and Talk Talk

AVG could be a potenial problem if it is scanning emails.
Some have problems right from the start others don't have
any for months and then suddenly do. Email scanning is
not necessary.

At the very least turn the scanning off. The best
solution is to uninstall AVG and see if you can install
using the custom installation. At that point choose to
leave out the email scanning.

For the gmail account information.
Try these settings first and see if they work - no Talk Talk settings.
These are US settings, if you are in the UK or elsewhere,
check the gmail for your area to make sure these are the ports used.
It appears you used Port 25 and that is the cause of that error.

Sever Tab
POP3 incoming mail: pop.gmail.com
SMTP outgoing mail: smtp.gmail.com
Also put a check mark in My server requires authentication

Has anyone suffered prolonged loss of connection using a talktalk wifi bband router? (ISP- aol) If so, what explanations were offered by aol?

I've got an aol engineer visiting Thurs.to examine connection loss (since last Weds). But I'm convinced the problem is with the router. But from the tone of the aol help man's questions I suspect he's already briefed his engineer to do his best to represent the problem as being either with my computer or positioning of router/filters/condition of wall-sockets - usual getouts.

The talktalk router is neww, issued Feb 12, after my original router, speedtouch, started suffering idle timeouts every day.

Can anyone advise on the most often-used excuses given my wifi engineers so I can counter them and convince the engineer to do an unbaised examination? Or could I be wrong and there really is a technical problem with my line or connections. Before the engr comes I want to be prepared to fend off ******** and recognize genuine cause-suggestions.

Any replies appreciated : but I have to use comp at local library so I shan't be able to respond promptly.

A:Talk Talk router, lost connection

Without further detail, it is really impossible to give an opinion.
If you have another computer - with wireless, or by using a wireless usb try that and if that does not lose the signal, it is a fair bet it something with the setup on this computer - is it not.

Sometimes changing the wireless channel may improve the result.
If some other local equipment is using the same channel that could cause the loss of signal.

I am sure it is best to wait until the engineer has been seen as it only 2 days or so
I've got an aol engineer visiting ThursClick to expand...

and then if you still have problems, and he has checked the broadband service to your property, please post back

I have tested the mic in ventrilo, team speak, and team fortress 2 in game speach nothing comes out succes full.

Anyone know a fix for this problem? like a driver i need to install for it or something?

Test the Windows Sound Recorder on your PC:

1. Click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment and choose Sound recorder
2. Click record button and speak to see whether the green line moves to indicate the application picks the sound.
3. Click on Stop button and Play to check the sound. Make sure the device is selected
4. Click Edit Then Audio Properties and make sure Logitech Device is listed as preferred device for Sound Recording

And i have done this and it works perfectly here!! but alas it does not work in when im in game vent or team speak

BUT it supposed to have...


but Ethernet is completely missing from the line up... the manual shows what a perfect running conection should be and its all ok except for the Ethernet entry missing completley?

The laptop connects @ 100Mbps no probs via Ethernet and we can access the router settings via ethernet so that indicates that there isnt any problem with the LAN connection

when she trys to access the internet the internet light flashes to indicate activity but nothing happens..

Pings all fail...

what could be the problem?

we have the right username and password in and if any of the config were incorrect it wouldnt connect at all would it?

I have it set as so...

are these correct?

OK so awhile ago my Pipex account swapped to talk talk since then I was getting disconnect anywhere from every 5 minutes to an hour. I solved this problem buy swapping from a Speedtouch 330 to a netgear N300 DNG2200.

now my connection is perfectly stable I haven't had a disconnect since I swapped which has been a very long time. However since the change my down speed has gone from somewhere around 250kb/s to 120kb/s (so says steam). I think this has something to do with the 330 using G DMT rather then ADSL, but tbh I don't really know. so is there anyway I can reclaim my lost speed I know the line is capable off? with going back to the frustration of repeated disconnects (i had to restart computer on every disconnect because it wouldnt redial otherwise )

Connection Speed 1202 kbps 693 kbps

I'm at a friends house and they were explaining how she had got rid of her antivirus software because of this thing called Talk Talk HomeGuard. Antivirus software is a very importent thing on a computer and I knew that this was a BAD idea. I also read on the TalkTalk faq that:

_________________________________________________________________Will Virus Alerts replace the need for Anti-Virus software?

No, they complement each other. Virus Alerts extends protection to devices unable to use traditional Anti-Virus software as they access websites. i.e. smartphones or games consoles.

I added a contact that appeared under the chat contacts in gmail. Then some public talk profile was generated and also added for the same person. I could delete the chat that I added regularly but not the 73yrfhvyrfgirigu @ public.talk.google.com crap that was generated.

It is not in any circles either, and yet when you click in the Hangouts in the search bar this contact appears as a suggestion. On other places like circles, find co-workers among the mess that Google+ is you can find other emails you have emailed are suggested and not this particular public.talk contact. And yet for Hangouts this is the only suggestion that comes first and it has no option to remove from chat and I can't find what stores it... Holy crap google

I am running Vista Home Premium on Toshiba Satellite A135/S4637 laptop since July 2007. things were working smooth since recently.

During the gtalk/Skype voice chats Vista used to freeze. This problem used to occur every 10-20 mins and i had to reboot the system manually.

On manual reboot i saw BSODs few times only but before i could read and understand the message system used to reboot.

I tried to reinstall the soundcard driver (Realtek HD Audio). but the situation didnt improve.

As a last step, i installed Vista fresh on my system along with all the relevant drivers. but system still hangs while using gmail voice call. i didnt see BSOD after Vista reinstall.

Now i see even during text messaging gtalk hangs but not the OS.

I did some google about vista BSOD and messenger. many have suggested BIOS upgrade. But i am not very familiar with BIOS upgradation rather keep it untouched.

Please guys suggest me something that i can do to make gtalk work on vista
My system specs are as follows:

Processor : GenuineIntel? CPU [email protected] GHz
RAM: 1 GB (which i will soon upgrade to 2GB)
System type : 32 bit OS

However, when the google talk was almost complete i got a pop up from comodo saying that a UNRECOGNIZED PARENT GOOGLE.EXE application was detected and asked if I wanted to allow or block. Before i could think of what to do, google talk was already installed. So, i went to control panel and tried to remove google talk from there, but when I clicked on remove i got another message from comodo saying that clicking remove is going to allow some heuristic application or something like that which is not safe..so, i checked block request on comodo.
I rebooted the computer, google talk pops up first...so the application is running. I tried to remove it from control panel again, i can't, it says its probably already removed, but i can see google talk in the control panel. Also, the icon exists on my desk top. I shift deleted the Icon from desktop, but can't get rid of the google talk itself. it pops up on my computer everytime i start my computer, its gets started even before my other regular messengers like msn start up.
Is my computer infected?

Closed Google Talk. Now I need to refer back to a message there, and I can't see the it because I had sent the messenger to start clean each time I reopened it.
Is there a way to see recent messages, even if I closed Google Talk?
Thanks, this could save a difficult situation...

I've been using Google Talk to make phone calls since 2010, although the quality of the calls were usually so-so at best (Static, gaps in conversation, etc). Most people I know who use it are happy with theirs. Upgrading the connection speed didn't help, either. Since it's time to buy a new PC, could anyone tell me what system requirement options i should choose in order to optimize the call quality?
Thank you!

Does anyone here use google talk with a webcam?
The only information ive found on it is from 2005-
When you right cick the talk app there is an option for webcam - a little window pops up and the video is displayed - on MY end.
(im testing by opening a 'chat' from pc to pc in the same room)
On the other pc there is no video popup, just the text chat.

Long story short: I am trying set up something with a friend so they can see me and we can text each other-
They dont have a cam yet and are pc illiterate - what's the simplest route to go?

edit - Nm, I just discovered Yawcam!

Hi! Welcome to SevenForums! Now, I don't use Google Talk, but looking at the screenshot you've supplied you've right-clicked on the icon for Google Talk. That will only show you the "Recently Viewed Pages/Files" Jumplists, which I don't think Google Talk supports anyway! So you will have to sign out from the main window.
