Problem with recording devices and call issues

Until recently I had a few problems with my microphone on Skype. Whenever I start my PC, everything will be fine, but every time I change the microphone source (from my webcam for stereo mix so I can play sounds in calls) and leave the call, I get weird questions. First if I still have the stereo mix as the source micro fine, but if I change it to my micro webcam when I click on answer call nothing happens and if I call someone it won't fail to connect and it will say: problem with the device registration, which is strange because it has nothing to do with the connection. Also if I change the source to microphone during a call, the call will be disconnected as if I turned on the internet and post something about the sound card errors. Can anyone help?


I found the problem, clown fish was not working with Skype and it ceased to use the microphone and I thought since I had removed so I don't think that was the problem, but for some reason any, it is been installed, in any case I removed it and now Skype works fine.

  • "Problem with recording device" - with no Microphone

    In short, despite not having a mic that I usually use Skype calls to be able to listen to friends when you play and do stuff in general. However today all of a sudden when we tried it auto-a ended the call with an error 'problem with the recording device '.

    It happens both with echo and simple restart does not solve the problem either.

    Apparently, with the new codec NGC (new generation call), which is now used for all calls from Skype, it is mandatory to have a microphone connected to the computer. Without a microphone, Skype calls will not work.

  • Problem with my device and application with Windows 10


    How can I solve this problem. He says that my camera is not completely compatible with windows 10 and also my app that doesn't work 100% on windows 10. This will interfere with my pc? Need help pls.

    Hi maverickguy :)

    There is no real "means" to solve these problems. The only way they will get solved if the manufacturer of your device (Broadcom) or your software publishers adapt their software so that they will be 10 compatible Windows. Right now, I can tell you that even with these errors, you still can update Windows 10. The Broadcom Wireless card is a virtual, so unless you use it, you don't need. It is not your true wireless adapter so your WiFi will still work, then you can ignore this warning. Regarding the LogonStudio, it simply means that the program could not work properly after the upgrade so that you can be: uninstall the upgrade and reinstall the then reinstall it after the upgrade or the program is simply not compatible with Windows 10 and the Publisher unless it adapts to Windows 10 , there is nothing you can do about it.

    However, these are only warnings that can be ignored, your computer can be upgraded to Windows 10 and it'll still works.

    If you have any questions, let me know.

  • "the problem with playback device" with Skype.

    receive 'problem with playback device' with Skype.  When I go to the Control Panel on my pc dell under sounds, etc., there is no option of reading before it takes.  have spent hours on Skype and my pc. Help!

    Hi BeverlyBowers,

    Facing any problem with the sound on the computer other than on Skype?

    Problem with playback device means that Skype cannot find a speaker or a headset that is properly configured on your machine in order to make a call.

    Method 1:
    I suggest you to run the Fixit and check if it helps.

    Automatically diagnose and fix the audio problems and Skype webcam

    Method 2:
    If the problem persists, I suggest that you make sure that speaker or headphones are selected by default.

    a. go to Start and click on Control Panel.
    b. click on her, then a new window will open.
    (c) in the new window click on the tab "recording" and right click in the window and click Show disabled devices.
    d. now check if the speaker or headset is listed here and right click above and choose Activate.
    e. highlight the speaker or headphones and click on 'Set as default'.

    Method 3:
    If the problem persists, I suggest you install the latest audio drivers on the manufacturer's Web site and check if it helps.

    Hope this information helps. Answer the post with an up-to-date issue report to help you further.

  • Satellite Pro C650D - problems with the audio and game controllers


    I recently had problems with my microphone and speakers/headphones and game controllers.
    Sometimes the microphone stops working when on Skype, for example, but most of the time works fine, once again, when I restart the pc.

    Stakeholders sometimes still work when I connect headset.
    Some of the sounds are still coming through the speakers while some coming through the headphones.

    I have a usb game controller which also did not work everything properly.
    If I assign buttons in the program that they do not work in the game.

    All these devices are in Device Manager in a group that makes me think it's sort of annoying update doubtful that messes with them.

    Any body have similar problems or know what to do better?

    See you soon


    Can you please send some details on the laptop model and the system you are using?

    With regard to the issue of sound/mic:
    > The microphone sometimes stops working when on Skype, for example, but most of the time works fine, once again, when I restart the pc.

    Are you talking about internal microphone or external? This only happens using Skype?
    In your case I would test the microphone using different applications to make sure that is not a Skype related issue.

    > Yet sometimes the speakers work when I connect headset.
    I recommend this thread:

    The user has had a similar problem, but this phenomenon was linked to the Realtek HD Audio Manager settings.
    She wrote:
    + In the upper right corner, there is a small yellow folder called "Connector settings" in my version. +
    + There, finally I could re-enable the setting "enable popup dialog box, when the unit is plugged. +

    + So now when I plug an external speaker or headphones, it appears, and I select the option "helmet" (instead of "line-in"), and then the sound only through the headphones/ext.speaker.+

    Regarding the game controller:
    > I have a usb game controller which also did not work everything properly.
    > If I attribute buttons in the program, they do not work in the game.
    I put t think its problem of laptop in my opinion, you must make sure that the controller is compatible with the games you play and also recommended to check some info provided by the manufacturer of the game controller.

  • Big problems with USB devices

    Since I upgraded to El Capitan I have several, serious problems with USB devices:

    1 USB hard drive: everything by watching a video from an external hard drive, the hard drive will be to disassemble all the minutes, the video will be of course hang and it takes 45-60 seconds until the drive reconnects. I also can not boot from any external hard drive more. Booting from a USB key works fine.

    2. I can't transfer my Sunny BT11 of beam data more. The Sunny Beam is a device that records the data of my photovoltaic plant. The overview of the system he sees when connected via USB, however he is not recognized and so I can't transfer data files. Also, it makes not a difference if it is connected via a USB hub or directly, the two versions do NOT work. In the Finder preferences, all devices are controlled to display on the desktop.

    The two scenarios always perfectly work with my Mac mini that has not been updated and uses Mac OS X 10.10.

    Hello Gulliver,

    It seems that if you live with loss of connection of your USB devices since the installation of Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, is that correct?

    I suggest that you are troubleshooting by following the steps in this article - OS X El Capitan: If a USB device does not work

  • HP 15 laptop: problem with the touchpad and the key "stuck."

    Last weekend, I have an irritating problem with my HP 15 laptop. Bought two years ago and upgrades to Windows 10 a year ago.
    First of all, my touchpad started to not work properly. It "freezes" and I can't use it until I click the ESC key, but it doesn't last and "freezes" again a few seconds later. Then, everytime I open a window where there is a text box (Start menu, edge browser, Control Panel, etc.), the number 5 is entered automatically and permanently, as if the button 5 has been blocked. I did a quick check and button 5 do not seem physically stuck.
    Yesterday, I restored the system to the factory settings, so I'm back to 8.1 for Windows and then upgraded to Windows 10. Everything seems to work fine, but this morning, the problem was back. Is there something I can do? What is the problem caused by Windows 10 or the computer? Should I restore it to Windows 8.1? Everything worked great til last weekend, I don't know what that was.
    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Welcome to the HP support community @gouch3.

    I understand that you have a problem with the keyboard and the touchpad on your laptop from HP 15.

    Have you tried to use a keyboard external and mouse at all?

    Have you tried to go to Safe Mode to see if the problems persist in there?

    Have you tried to perform a material or forced reset Reset?

    Did you do a test of material?

    Have you updated your drivers?

    It could be a driver problem to be able to look at that for you, I need your model number. I wish I could give you an answer or not, but at this point without the troubleshooting results and the model number, it is difficult for me to say.

    I can say that if everything works in point 8.1 of Windows without problem, the driver TROUBLESHOOTING is a great place to start. Please try to follow these steps for the keyboard and the touchpad of troubleshooting:

    • Beginning
    • Search for Device Manager
    • Search results, open Device Manager.
    • Click on display
    • Show hidden devices.
    • Click the arrow next to keyboards.
    • Right click on the name of the keyboard device.
    • Select uninstall.
    • Continue deleting the names of devices in the category keyboards until the feature of all the names have been uninstalled.
    • Restart the laptop twice.


    • Type of research, "Device Manager."
    • Click on Device Manager,
    • Expand mice and other pointing devices.
    • Right click on the TouchPad,
    • Click on uninstall.
    • Restart the computer laptop twice,
    • Reinstall the TouchPad card.

    I found a document of troubleshooting for you to try also called Portable keyboard troubleshooting. Please be sure to follow the steps described in this document.

    The best document I have for TouchPad problems is the use and troubleshooting of the TouchPad and ClickPad document. 

    Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant, if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers that need to put up-to-date.

    This is a great question other clients may also be questioned. When we came to a resolution, please share what has worked for you with others by marking this post as an acceptable Solution. If you want to show appreciation for my efforts today, please take a second to click the Thumbs Up button below.

    If you need assistance, I would be more than happy to continue to help you. Please re-post with the results of the resolution of the problems. Could you please also provide your model number (How can I find my model number or product number?)

    Thank you!

    Hi MAGIC,

    It seems that you may need to update your BIOS firmware.

    You may need to contact Samsung for more information, if the update is available for download on their Web site.

    When started this issue is happening?

    You can disable the virtual WiFi adapter, as it essentially works as a tool of development at the moment:
