    I purchased a Toshiba notebook computer in Mexico, where I am presently living. I thought I could change the operating system to U.S. I discovered that I could not do that, so I had my Mexican Tech guys install a new operating system (they did not give me the disks). Windows Vista Home Premium. My computer still thinks it is in Mexico, from time to time, and I can deal with that. However, I cannot get my sound recording settings to work properly. Being out of the U.S., it is very important that I use Skype. I can get it to work, and the next day it is not working. Control panel settings say that everything is functioning properly - drivers are current, etc. Yesterday it was working, today it is not. The speakers are fine. I just can't talk to anyone because they cannot hear me. For several weeks, Skype complained about "noise in the background". Now it is complaining that I do not have an installed recording device. WOULD IT HELP IF I WENT ON LINE AND BOUGHT AND INSTALLED ON LINE ANOTHER COPY OF WINDOWS VISTA? I tried connecting an old headset with microphone, and it did not show the installation of the device, nor did it show up in control panel as an option for me to us. FINALLY, in Sounds, in my control panel, it shows that I have the same recording device TWICE. One is listed as ... (2). Should I remove it? THANK YOU!

    Might want to look in device manager to see if you have any warnings!

    Thank you. My device manager shows no warnings or problems. It specifically states that my sound systems are functioning correctly. Again I wonder if it is that I have high definition audo device and then again high definition audio device(2). Should one be deleted?
