    open voice it displays a msg that audio compression codes are missing or
    incompatible so i tried to find why is that and found in yahoo this help but
    couldn't apply it on windows vista so plz can anyone help me in this problem

    yahoo help:-
    1-Press the "Start" button in the lower left corner of the screen.
    2-Select "Settings," then "Control Panel," then "Multimedia." The Multimedia
    Properties window should be displayed.
    3-Click on the "Devices" tab.
    4-Click on the plus-symbol (+) next to "Audio Compression Codecs" to expand
    the list of installed codecs.
    5-If "DSP Group TrueSpeech(TM) Audio CODEC" is displayed, go to step 13.
    6-If "DSP Group TrueSpeech(TM) Audio CODEC" is not displayed, it needs to be

    10-You will be prompted to restart Windows. You may restart now or later,
    but the codec will not be available until you restart your computer.

    computer, continue to the next step.

    Vista doesn't have a "multimedia" icon like XP did.....
    so I can't seem to get to the part to add the codecs

    I tried that and it didnt work, I have no Audio Compression Codecs anywhere
    on my stupid vista computer.
    Anyone else?
    I want to voice chat with friends, i'm sick on not being able to do so. I
    wish the hell I had never gotten vista. Nothing is compatible on this stupid
    thing. I've wasted 1800bucks on a new comp that doesnt work any better then
    the one i had built by a friend.
