Most computers, other than laptops, do not have an internal mic.

The easiest thing to do is to pick up a headset with a mic in it, or you can buy a stand alone desk mic for the PC. Both of those...

I looked up your laptop, and can find no camera drivers at the HP/Compaq site. That is directly from the manufacturer. Are you sure you have a camera built into it? Some models of your laptop...

If you were into serious gaming, I would recommend a 1070 or 1080, but for what you are doing the Radeon will do just fine. Why spend a fortune if you don't have to?

The drive has 1.4 TB free, according to Windows. I'm starting to think that either the NAS is broken or Win 7 is broken. The machine is a dual boot, so I'm going to try it with Win 10 and see what...
