Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have there computer setup properly.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

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

Sony KDL-32BX400. When conect it to AV3 i can hear the sound but it doens show the video.whats the problem? i tried almost everything.can someone help me?


Please try and check this on the AV2 and if there is sound and video then the possible fault can be with the port.
This will also confirm the outputs of the player as this can be tested on another TV - in case there is no video even on the port AV2.

I try to use skype on aspire 1 but fail the call test: I cannot


First: Check if the device is installed and working properly - My Computer-(right click)-Manage-Device Manager - be sure there is nothing wrong in "Sound, video and Game Controllers" section.
If there is something wrong, you will see it immediately, then fix it.
If in that section all is OK, then
1) go to Acer FTP site and get Realtek driver there (ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_150/driver/Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772.zip).
2) Uninstall running Realtek driver using Control Panel and reboot.
3) When XP after reboot will ask for driver installation, just cancel this and install Realtek driver downloaded.
4) Check with Skype your voice recording and enjoy.
All this is valid if you do not have your microphone physically broken. Tested by myself - I had the same situation.

New Aspire netbook.. microphone -others hear me as garbled


The performance of Skype is affected by the bandwidth available from your ISP. The video image your are sending and receiving occupy a large part of the information transmitted over the Internet, therefore make sure the video image setting is at a resolution of 320X240 (e-mail size) and if this is still affecting the audio quality to the other person (ie. the voice breaks up) and the video image then switch the video camera off and if sound and video image from the other party is also affecting you, then also get them to switch off their video camera.
Also check the Video and Microphone settings in Skype - Tools - Options etc. Check the correct video camera and microphone has been selected.
