    There can be several reasons why you have the delay when recording...

    what software are you using and is that upto date?

    do you have the lates drivers installed?

    How much free RAM do you have in the system?

    What OS is this running?

    Have you or can you reduce the resolution that you are recording at?

    Microphones that are built into the monitor are generally of poor quality to begin with.

    Is there a Microphone in jack on the system sound device?

    I would try an external mic.

    I would also make sure that you are running the lastet version of the sound drivers

Right-click the speaker icon in the right side of the taskbar on the bottom of the screen. Select Audio properties - on the Mic section there should be a checkbox with -10db or something simular there, check that box to see if your microphone performance improves. You can also lower the slider if still less amplification is desired. Built-in mic's are of the lowest quality, and the default amplification setting can be much too high depending on your mic's sensitivity, which will cause extreme distortion. I typically only use them if my main mic fails or is unavailable.

Can't get the built in webcam to work on my computer

well....the Webcam has it's own connection to the PC, (typically a USB cable,) but the sound will come out of your if you have your speakers built into your monitor, then yes, there needs to be a 2nd cable from the monitor to the back of the PC. It should have a headphone jack at each end; there will be only one place on the monitor it will fit. On the back of the PC, there should be a small round pale-green connection to plug-in near the USB ports, (unless you have added your own separate sound card, then it should go there.)

If the video is not working, then check if it is plugged into the EXACT same USB port. You do not note what OS you're using....but usually I recommend a device be removed from the device manager, then rebooted several times before attempting to re-install it.

Screen colour distorted

Your monitor needs to be replaced more than likely.

Try using another monitor to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor shows the distorted colors, then your video card inside the computer is bad.

When switching monitor and tower on the screen shows great distortion

Make sure that the monitor cable is firmly connected to the tower and monitor. If it is and the screen is still distorted then remove the Graphics card from the tower and re-insert it in. THis should resolve the issue

Please rate if this helped you.

I am having a problem with the display. It seems to flicker and become distorted and the cursor drags with a shadow. could this be my video card

It could be your video card. To confirm, use a different monitor with your computer and see if the same problem happens with the other monitor.
If the other monitor works fine, then the problem is with the original monitor; otherwise its the video card.
If the video card is built-in to your motherboard, there's not much you can do to fix it. If it's a separate card, I would suggest taking out the video card, inspecting the connectors for debris, and then re-insert the card. This "reseating" of the card might resolve your problem.
Make sure that you disconnect the power cable from your computer to prevent you from electrocuting yourself.

What is the green plug at the back of the monitor that connects to the green plug between the pink and blue port at the back of the tower panel on a Compaq Presario is it the sound?

the pink is for a microphone and the blue is for a "line in" (much like a microphone). the Green plug is for your speakers. your monitor would only have this plug if it has built on speakers.

Monitor Dell E173FP Red Haze Distortion on screen.

Most likely the VGA cable itself. It comes and goes. If you wiggle your cord around near the tower, you can get it to go in and out. If the VGA cable is built into the monitor, you're outta luck but if not you can just replace the VGA cable. Have you tried another monitor on your system?
