Lousy Sound

by pkiddmui / January 29, 2006 10:07 PM PST

Just installed a Logitech Fusion Webcam in a Sony Vaio RB30. After the install, I'm getting a crackeling sound out of the speaker with anything that produces volumn (like Movies, music and games). Using intergrate sound from the MB, 5.1, with a pair of 2.1 speakers. Tried un/reinstall web cam and updated software from Logitech. Any suggeestions?????

Sony Vaio RB30 3.0 ghz
Radeon X300SE Vid Card

Ok with the Fusion webcam your suppose to have a full duplex sound card this is actually recommended on the box I am not positive you have that with the onboard sound now. A full-duplex sound card can record and play back sounds at the same time, if you can't thats possibly your problem.

Actually the problem solved itself. One day the wireless mouse went south on me. Tried everything with no avail. Then I remember something about using a USB/PS2 converter. It solved the mouse and sound problem. Ahh, the wonders of technology.
