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

Has my son crippled himself by only getting an associate's degree?


He needs to grow up and face facts. Don't finance him, and let him learn. If he wants to be a graphic artists. He needs to follow his dreams, but has to have a formal training or be super talented. As an employer, I look at education as an indicator of drive and perseverance. Not education only. He'd better have an outstanding resume to get a job, or be self employed. My 2 cents worth.

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 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.
