I've just bought a new Acer laptop. It's got a built in webcam which I tried to use yesterday but it told me that I had no sound card so it wouldn't work. I am able to listen to music, etc on my PC so I'm not really sure if I have a sound card or not. Is it possible to not have a sound card but still hear sounds? Is there a way to tell if I have one? And if I don't have one, can I buy an external one or something? Thanks for your help everyone!
You mention two computers a laptop and a PC. If you can hear music then you have a soundcard in the computer (laptop or PC). laptop sound cards are sound chips built on to the motherboard, PCs with integrated sound are the same.
Thanks everyone. MAJ...I was being stupid. I meant laptop, not PC. I'll have a go later to see if I can find the sound card under device manager. I would have thought that the webcam would be able to pick this up if it were there...no? If it's not, is it possible to buy some kind of add-on?
