Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. I'll assume that you are using YAHOO MESSENGER and walk you through the setup. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "CALLIN & DEVICES."
When that comes up check and check to see that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to you audio card.

Then go to "Test Audio"
In Blue "Open the call setup Assistant"
When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do i turn on my web cam


Hi,
Your webcam needs a program to use. You could try Videocaster and click Capture Video from the menu. You can add music, narration, effects, edit it, save it as a movie, or even stream it to the web..
You can also use it in Skype and Messenger, but you have to go to the video settings and choose it as the default webcam.

Hope this helps
