you can go to device manager and roll back the drivers.

Sorry just checked mine and I don't think that you can roll back the driver just Uninstall it or update it.

Maybe try this to see if it can find an update for here but I would wait and see what other replies that you get.

First thing is to try system restore to before you installed the webcam.

Failing that,run Belarc click here to find out what soundcard is installed under multimedia,then visit the makers website to update the driver.

If you cannot find the correct driver,just post back the info under multimedia and we can find something for you.

Hi Buteman :-)

Have you checked from Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices that your on-board sound or sound card is listed as the Default device?

Also check from the General tab that Mute has not been Enabled - it's a common cause of no sound problems.

Your spot on mate,trying to learn a wee bit of photography at snails pace.
Spending a lot of time with editing the pics and trying various software.

Great hobby and really enjoying it,but sadly reduces my time here at PCA.
I do still pop in even to keep my hand in :-))
