I am having trouble with my skype video. When I make a call I can see and hear them, but my party cannot see me. I have a logetic webcam250. Please help!!!!!


You should install the drivers before you try to operate the webcam, unless the instructions state otherwise. If the drivers are not installed, unplug the webcam and install the drivers, and plug the web cam back in when promoted. If you have the drivers installed already, or can confirm the web cam works, open up skype and navigate to tools then options. Once in the options menu go to the video settings tab. In the "select webcam" drop down menu select the webcam of your choice.

It's also possible you are using an older version of skype that my not support new protocols for video, OR it's possible you are using a new version of skype which doesn't automatically start video. If you are using an older version of skype (current version is 5.1) update to the later version. If you have the latest version, you may need to manually start video chat. When you start a call, look towards the lower area of the screen for a button that says "My video" and click on it. This should start the video chat.

Hope this was of some use!

I want to know how to find my web cam on my lap top


Well if it's an integrated camera it should be installed try and find the original CD's. If you don't have the CD's install the drivers through Driver Magician(r). After you installed the webcam, go to YM main window -> Messenger -> My webcam. That should do the trick.

Skype video


Try to obtain newest and latest version of skype first. Problem may be with your web cam as it may not be properly connected with your pc or it has no proper driver install, please try reinstalling driver and check.

Further, before you install driver please check the settings from skype menu to see if they are set properly.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Had sound on im window for audibles now it is gone


What version of YM are you using?

If everything else has sound but not YM then try the ff:
* Restart the computer first then check if that will make it work
* Run Windows System Restore - just go back to a day when everything worked fine (refer to http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/getstarted/ballew_03may19.mspx)
* If that didn't work, try to uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs then reinstall it
* Use the latest version of Yahoo Messenger

Goodluck!

this could happen if you have the latest version of ym on your computer and the one you're sending messages to has the old version, make sure both of you are using the latest version of ym
