VX-5000 Microphone Issues

I have a LifeCam VX-5000 installed on an older (2004) XP SP3 system. Although
video works fine, the audio recording function is nonfunctional.
Specifically, only nearby, very loud noises (such as are produced when
blowing or tapping on the microphone) are detected by the software. In
addition, a strange, repetitive beeping sound can be heard quite loudly on
playback. Editing the settings in the Audio Devices control panel is
ineffective. I encountered the same problem when I used a different webcam of
the same model; since this webcam works perfectly fine on my new Vista SP2
system, I doubt it's a hardware issue. I have already updated the drivers,
and (short of reinstalling the device driver again) I cannot think of
anything else.

It may be possible that the software and/or driver version you have
installed is the issue. I had a problem similar sounding to yours with
audio where it output a squeal after installing updated software/drivers,
reverting back to older drivers resolved the problem.

panel/sound and audio devices and,in audio/sound recording unselect camera
microfon and select sound card or audio chip instead.do the same in
voice/voice recording.than go to windows live messinger,tools/audio and video
setup,choose 'custom' and select camera microfon as default one.same in skype
