My husband can hear me through my web cam but I cannot hear him
My husband and I have matching web cams and he can hear me through mine, but I cannot hear him through mine, is it my cam or his? Also, how do I fix it, my volumes are all turned up and have tried uninstalling and reinstalling a few times and still nothing. Please help, he works out of town and we need to stay connected. Thanks!

This might be an issue with your web cam settings or the web cam itself. Try going through the options of the web cam to see if there are any settings making the web cam display everything pink. If not then try the web cam in another computer (I'm assuming you have a desktop with an external web cam) see if the video is still pink. If it is then there is an issue with your web cam if not then it is an issue with the settings on your computer
In the event that you are using a laptop with a built in web cam you might want to check if you still have a warranty to get the web cam repaired.
=> Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Classic View, click Device Manager
=> Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Home View, click System and Maintenance->Device Manager
=> Click Control Panel->System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager button
3. Find your web cam in Device Manager
Understanding Device Names
=> Windows provides user-friendly device names to accomodate us humans. As far as Windows is concerned, the device name is simply a comment!
=> It's those cryptic Device Identification strings that really identify a device
=> Device Manager displays whatever device name it happens to find in the device driver
...==> If Windows finds NO device driver, your web cam may be named "Unknown" or "Other" device
...==> If Windows finds the WRONG device driver you may see your web cam with the WRONG device name
How to find your web cam
=> While your web cam is connected, look through all of Device Manager for devices with a yellow icon (probably a yellow question mark)
=> Be certain to expand the USB category to check all devices listed under it. Also, be sure to also check if category Other Devices appears in Device Manager and look under it as well
=> Your web cam will appear as a device with a yellow icon (probably a question mark)
=> Click on thumbnail to see the full sized image
How to verify the device you found is your web cam
=> Your web cam device will only appear in Device Manager when the web cam is powered on and connected
=> Disconnect your web cam. Verify the device you had found is no longer displayed in Device Manager
4. Find your web cam's Hardware Ids
In Device Manager, select your web cam device, rt click Properties. Click Details tab
Select Hardware Ids from the pull-down. You'll see a list of one or more Hardware Id strings
5. Search for a driver based on Hardware Id > Update 1/26/2011: To avoid a common mistake,
don't confuse the number zero with the letter "O". IDs may contain zero
but NOT the letter "O"
The best driver will match the Hardware Id at the top of the list. The next best driver match will match the next Hardware Id on the list, etc
Start by searching for the Id at the top of the Hardware Id list
If only due to how different search engines work, recommend you cut USB\ from the search string
=> Example: If the Hardware Id is USB\VID_093A&PID_2468&REV_0001 search for VID_093A&PID_2468&REV_0001
You can start by clicking Search at the top of your TechSpot window to search TechSpot first

got the same -- horrible noise coming out of the speakers. I connect XP to XP, with skype on both sides. One of the sides seems fine, but the other one (which is mine), gets this noise every minute can anyone tell me why it is so?
