Girlfriend's webcam is no longer working.

My girlfriend in Hong Kong has an A4tech webcam. It was working before she went home. When she got back, it was not. She tried to reinstall it, but it says the program is already running so she can't. She tried to unistall it, but it won't permit that either. How can she either fix it or shut it off so she can reinstall it?

Send this to her.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Dell Inspiron going to hibernate when its not set on hibernate


The hibernate mode is one of microsoft's worst idea because it often corruped window files forcing the user to reload windows from scratch. When you were in power options did you also turn off standby? and set it to never on the list.

How Can I Get The Password Of 007 Facebook Hack v1.0?? I Need This Very Urgently Because I Think My Girlfriend Is Cheating Me.... So Please Please Give It To Me Please


That kind of **** doesn't work. Anyone with an understanding of Visual Basic could make something that LOOKS like it works, but it really doesn't. Look at her behavior instead of invading her privacy and possibly destroying your relationship if she isn't cheating.
1. She is Spending More Time Away from Home than Usual
One of the most common signs of a cheating girlfriend is that she may start spending more time away from home. It could be that she suddenly keeps getting called into work at odd hours, working late or that she often has to be away on business. Or, she may tell you about some really great new friends that she has made but that you have never met and keep going off to meet up with them without inviting you. Anytime that your girlfriend starts spending significant amounts of time away from home and coming or going at odd hours compared to her usual schedule it can be a sign that she is cheating.
2. She is Spending a lot of Money with Nothing to Show for it.
Most of the time cheating takes money since people who cheat often meet up at places like restaurants or hotels. If you notice that your girlfriend seems to be broke all the time but hasn't bought anything new and hasn't had a change in her income level it could be a sign of cheating.
3. She Starts Paying More Attention to Her Appearance
If your girlfriend suddenly starts taking more time with her hair and makeup and dressing up without a special occasion she could be trying to impress whomever she is cheating with. Pay special attention to her underwear selection since most girls like to wear sexy underwear when they are with someone new. If she wears granny panties when she is around you but puts on a lace thong to head to work it could be a sign that she is seeing someone else.
4. She Registers a New Email Address
Because email can be sent discreetly it is one of the most common ways for people who are cheating to stay in touch. Unlike talking on a phone where you could overhear her, she can send an email to another guy from a new email address and you would be none the wiser. Pay attention for her using a new email address, changing her password on her email or suddenly closing the window on her computer when you walk into the room.
5. She Deletes Her Text Messages Right Away
Text messages and cell phones are another common way for people to stay in touch with whomever they are cheating with. A sign that your girlfriend may be cheating is if she suddenly starts deleting her text messages and deleting the call log from her cell phone frequently...usually right after a text message comes in.
6. She Loses Interest in Activities and Interests You Used to Enjoy Together
If your girlfriend is cheating it may start to seem like she has lost all interest in you and in doing activities that you used to enjoy together. She may start canceling your usual movie night or not listening to you when you talk to her. She may not want to hear about your day or pay attention even if you have something important to say to her. It may seem like although she is there with you her brain is somewhere else.
7. Your Mutual Friends Start Acting Weird
You may notice one or two of your mutual friends start acting strangely when they are around you. Sometimes your friends will know that she is cheating and it can make for an uncomfortable situation for them. On one hand they are friends with her and don't want to betray her secret, but on the other hand they are friends with you and don't want to see you get hurt. You may even find that someone that used to be a great friend starts avoiding you completely because they don't want to get involved.
8. Obvious Physical Signs of a Cheating Girlfriend
There are the usual obvious physical signs of a cheating girlfriend that you should watch out for like coming home smelling like cologne, coming home with damp hair or with hair that smells like a different shampoo, or coming home with her blouse buttoned crooked...or even on inside out.
9. She Goes to the Bathroom Right When She Gets Home
If your girlfriend rushes into the bathroom the minute she gets home it could be because she is trying to clean up after cheating and remove any traces from her body. Listen for sounds of running water and be especially aware if she starts to shower right when she gets home. Also keep an eye on her laundry habits. If she suddenly starts washing her clothing every single day it could be because she is trying to hide stains or smells from you that could give away her secret.

Not knowing for sure is one of the hardest parts of suspecting that your girlfriend is cheating on you. Even if they are showing all the signs of cheating you still can't know for certain unless you find concrete evidence that something is going on. If you would like to learn how to find out for sure whether or not your girlfriend is cheating and put an end to the suffering, self-doubt and lies, I would recommend checking How to Catch a Cheater for resources that can help you discover the truth. Learn more at http://catchacheater.s1so.com. I wish you the best and sincerely hope that your girlfriend is not commiting such an atrocious act. PLZ leave feedback.

How do i charge my olympus u790sw? keeps saying battery empty and will not charge


Depending on how old the battery is and what sort of life it's led it could well be due for a replacement. They are extremely cheap especially from Ebay and the newer batteries last much longer per shoot. I assume you have checked the output of the charger and that the lead from the charger to the camera are in good order. A friendly repair shop should take only a few minutes if you can't do it. It is possible for almost brand new batteries to die in action. So don't be surprised if you do need a new one. By the way, when buying from Ebay most of the Hong Kong dealers sell the batteries in pairs. This is the best way to buy them as everyone should carry a spare with them.
Don't be concerned about buying from Hong Kong I've bought literally thousands of items and found I've had more hassles with local sellers than those from Hong Kong. And the batteries are about a quarter what you pay for them at home. Plus they are not rejects or duds. Those days are just about over.

Some body hacked my girlfriend's webcam and made some unacceptable content how is it possible please tell me.


Your girlfriend must be using yahoo messenger. I'd like to caution your girlfriend to refrain from using yahoo messenger for camming. It would be illegal if I described here about how it works. We are bonded by rules. Hence, we can only guide you to safety.

When i call my girlfriend on skype it says caller will only recive IMS calls.


This is because either you or she has set Skype dup to behave this way. Open Skype, under tools -> options -> video settings set up to your preferences. Do the same with audio settings too if you want. Your girlfriend has enabled instant messaging service, but not video service.
