Trouble Shooting

Make sure your Menu Bar is showing. (DO THIS NOW) It looks like this


(note, however, that in the regular Lync box (second below) is different)  If not showing, either click on the >> next to the paperclip and it will appear and should be checked as below, if you are already in a meeting.  If you are not in meeting, click the cog and follow the same proceedure.




Why is this important?  Because 99% of the time if there are issues, sound is the reason, usually NO SOUND.  If you unplug any device (headset, xTag, speakers etc.) you may lose sound.  Some programs may play with the sound and select the wrong speakers.  You need “Settings” to resolve these issues.  Make sure that sound issues are resolved before a meeting.   How do you do that?  Click on “Settings”, then “Options”, and then “Audio Device”. 

  Click on the drop down box where it says Headset (yours will most likely be different) try these till one works.

Download at

Log in with your regular user name and password (do not use AD\)  Type in Lync in the search,  Download either 32-bit or 64-bit depending on your system. Note:
Close Explorer before installing Microsoft Lync. (Lync interacts with Explorer to collected info including responding to your schedule to alert others as to your availability.)  (note:  It is best to save rather than run, because it will give you a chance to download to a folder of your choice otherwise you may find it hard to find.)  The download  is a zip folder and must be unzipped.  The result is a setup program that will install Lync.  Be sure to use the correct email address.  You should
use the user which is the one you use to access Link Blue and my UK ... Do not use  

(If you don’t know what system you have, click on the windows icon (start menu) where you shut down your system, look for Control Panel and click on it.  Depending on the view option setting, either click on "System" or "System and Security and then System".  Look under system type and it will have either 32-bit or 64-bit)
