mouse: whenever I start up the computer, the mouse doesn't work at all. I went into devices and it said the mouse is not working properly. but once I restart, it works perfectly fine. it keeps alternating between working and not working, so I have to restart it twice to get it to work.
webcam: I've really only used this with skype, but there are two main problems.
first of all, when the lights are off, the video shown by the webcam will be completely black. if I shine a light, say from my phone, that light will be shown in the video then the whole screen will be bright and I will be able to see my face from the light coming from the screen. However, this usually only lasts for a split second then it will go back dark again.
the second problem is that whenever I move the screen, even sometimes by the slightest amount, the webcam will disconnect and reconnect immediately after. this is particularly annoying with skype because I have to reclick the show video button. also, sometimes the webcam completely stops working and it displays a message saying unknown error, or it just won't show anything at all, but the webcam light will be on.
microphone: when I go to sound in the control panel, then go to the recording tab, it says I have two microphones. top panel analog jack and front panel 3.5 mm jack. In skype they show up as Microphone (High Definition Audio Device) and Microphone (High Definition Audio Device)(2). when I start up skype the microphone it's selected on never works, whether it's 1 or 2. I always have to switch the microphone it's using for it to work. This is kind of a nuisance. also in the control panel I set the microphone boost to +40 dB. before I did this, neither of them worked
I hope someone can fix some/all of these problems. thanks!
