Question about Skype IM
A sound card is a device inside a computer which regulates the input and output of audio to the computer. They can be a separate "card" or piece of hardware, or they can be integrated on your motherboard.
A problem with your sound card could be a multitude of things. The first step of solving the issue would be to verify that your sound card has the most recent drivers, or updates, for use. Find out what sound card you have by going to Control Panel, then Performance and Maintenance, and click on See basic information about your computer. A panel will open up, and click the tab at the top which says Hardware, and then click the Device Manager button. Scroll down to Sound, video, and game controllers, and double click that (or press the + next to it) to open up the drivers and codecs for sound and video. Anything relating to the sound or audio may be it. Then, search for the company of your sound card and find the appropriate drivers.

1. Check that your webcam is switched on and plugged into your computer
2. A webcam can only be used by one application at a time, so make sure you don't have any other applications open that are accessing the webcam, e.g. other instant messaging applications or even some websites.
3. Problems with video are often caused by driver issues. A driver is the program you install with the webcam which makes the webcam work with your computer (some webcams use preinstalled drivers so you may not have had to install one). Make sure you have the latest driver installed. You can download and install the most recent drivers from the webcam manufacturer's website.
To test your webcam go to the Skype menu > Preferences > Video and tick the box Enable Skype Video. When Skype is able to use your webcam, you will see a video preview of yourself.
