I have a HP COMPAQ pc with win xp home and broadband.
I got a USRobotics internet usb phone.Set up easy but when testing found although i could hear my friend clearly, my voice was drowned out every few seconds with screeches and noise. on the help line to USRobotics.Told to update everything including BIOS, Audio Device drivers and the chipset utility. Did so without result.
Tried HP. No use. This phone works realy well on my daughters PC which is a Fujitsu Siemens. Anybody come across this particular problem?

The only thing I can think of that may be relevant is that USB phones often switch the Default sound device to the phone itself.

hi Stuartli I have the phone set to USB device and this is all correct. I am not at home at the moment so I cant realy try anything. just thought some one may have had the same problem. May as well leave the phone at my daughter and keep using the headset and mike. Thanks very much for trying anyway, Happy new Year. John
