want to change linkedin e mail addresss

If you've recently changed jobs or personal Internet service providers, you can edit your LinkedIn account to use your new email address.
LinkedIn connection requests, private messages and other types of communications use your email address as a notification method, so it is important to keep your email address up to date in the LinkedIn system.

Browse to the LinkedIn home page at LinkedIn.com and sign in to your account.
Hover over your name near the top, right-hand corner of the screen and click on the "Settings" link.

Click the "Change" link next to the "PRIMARY EMAIL" heading located under your name and profile picture.
Type your new email address into the provided box and click the "Add email address" button. LinkedIn will send a confirmation email to your new address.
Check your new email account and click the confirmation link located inside the email from LinkedIn.

netflix freeze

It sounds very much like a software conflict problem.
Try an alternate video player and see what happens. A very good player is available from Baidu (free) which is a Chinese company. Here';s the link and despite the Chinese writing, just click on the download button. Baidu player is one of the best players I have come across. It seems to work with everything without problems.
Alternatively search for 'VLC media player' and download it. VLC is another (free) but excellent bit of software.

I have recently linked up via SKYPE with my son in Arizona. Although I can see him, I cannot hear him. Similarly, I have recently received an Ecard on my birthday, with verbal greetings from my Grandsons, again a video picture but no sound. What can I do to make my speakers work?

I'm not sure what version of Skype you have, or what operating system you're running (Windows, Apple, etc)
I think you need to go into your Skype settings and allow Skype to access you're microphone. Look up on Google where that setting is, I can't think of it off hand.
