If it is just with SKYPE and it works fine with MSN. Do the following:

1. Download the latest Livecamvx driver and install it making sure that it is good for the version of windows that you have.
2. If still no luck, download the latest version of skype. Uninstall your version and reinstall the new version see how it goes.

Hoping this was of help

When buying a web cam do you get one compatible with the tower or the screen...for example my friend has a sceptre screen and a dell tower


The screen is not an important consideration
He needs to be looking for a webcam:-
1) With a built in mic
2) Suitable for his OS - especially if he has Windows 7
3) Compatible with the chat programs he wants to use it in . For example Skype, Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger

Software/driver needed for UC-300 webcam


I checked out the company for your UC-300 camera driver and on the site below the drivers only go up to Windows XP.

http://www.hawkingtech.com/support/details.php?CatID=33&FamID=14&ProdID=252

So I checked further and on the following site

http://www.hawkingtech.com/newdrivers.php

They have changed to newer cameras for VISTA.
Sorry about that but it looks like you will have to buy a new camera.
Microsoft or Logitech are a better choice of web cameras and give better and longer support.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

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. Also send this on to them so they can check to make sure they are setup right. Bud

Dear Digjay,

Please Rate this solution.

for using webcam in yahoo messenger,all you have to do is go to the yahoo messenger settings and set the camera. On the bottom of my messenger there is a camera button that turns the cam on.

for installing skype


Downloading and Installing Skype Step1 Go to the Skype Web site (see the Resources section below for links to download Skype for Windows, Mac, and Linux users) and download the SkypeSetup.exe executable. (The executable gets downloaded under the Program Files folder under a directory called Skype that gets automatically created. A Skype Setup icon is also automatically seen on your desktop.) Step2 Click on the SkypeSetup icon that is on your desktop. A Skype Setup wizard then appears. You will get a warning window asking if you want to Run or Save this file, SkypeSetup.exe. Click Run. Note: Another confirmaton message may come up asking if you are sure you want to Run this software. Click "Run" again. Step3 Follow the instructions on the Skype Setup Wizard to complete the installation of the Skype software. At the end of the installation you will be asked to setup a Skype account. Step4 A Skype window appears and if you have never used Skype before you have the option of creating a Skype account. A link is seen on that window mentioning the following: "Don't have a Skype name?" Click on this link and it opens up another "Skype - Create a New Account" window where you have to type in your Full Name and then you have to type in a "Skype Name" and a Skype "Password" and "Repeat Password" in the respective fields on that window. Note: Jot down this Skype Name and Skype Password as you will need it everytime you open the Skype application. Step5 Click on the "Sign in" button. Note: After having created this new Skype Name account for the first time, the next time you open Skype again, your Skype name will automatically appear in the Skype name field. All you need to do is to type in your Skype password and click the "Sign in" button. Step6 Follow the instructions in the "Getting Started" guide to "Add a Contact" using the "Add Contact" button, to test your headset and microphone using the "Skype Test Call Feature," to set up a Conference Call with a business colleague or friend, and to explore all the other features in Skype. Step7 Once you have installed the Skype software, there are 2 ways by which you can open the Skype software application. Click on the Skype icon on your desktop Or Double click on the "x" icon in your desktop's system tray to start Skype at any time. Note: Once the Skype window comes up, the "x" checkmark then changes to a green checkmark to indicate that the Skype application is currently running on your computer. It changes back to an "x" mark when you have "Signed out" of Skype and Skype is no longer running on your computer.

Please rate this solution.Thank you.
