Everything is downloaded but I keep experiencing problems like that mentioned in the subject line. Also, received an error message that LifeCam would only work with Internet Explorer. I use Firefox. Can someone tell me what I need to do to fix the problems?

That statement is not true. It will work fine with either browser.
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 (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: You 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

MS Office Home 2010 is a valid product purchased during 2010 and has been used on various of my older Notebooks without any trouble. How do I download MS Office Home Business 2010 without an error mes


Microsoft Office is like any other MS product....the license key gives you the right to install it on as many machines as the license allows. That being said, if you want to move the software from one machine to another, it may or may not accept the license key immediately. MS usually has about a 90-day time lag on freeing up the keys when they have been activated. This way you can't buy one copy and immediately install it on ten different machines. Even so, you can call the MS activation number and activate a copy if you need to without waiting. You mentioned "downloading" it. Don't you keep a downloaded executable copy as a backup? Most people do. Re-downloading it every time you need to install it wastes bandwidth and in some cases, there is a maximum time limit that you can download from Digital River on a license key.

My Mac computer won't accept newer version of Skype keeps saying signed out. Downloaded older version How do I sign back in?


Make sure when you're launching the old version of Skype, you're doing so from the Applications folder in Finder. Sometimes, shortcuts still link back to the new version.

You could also try completely removing all instances of Skype by using AppZapper (free trial, http://www.appzapper.com). It scans and removes everything relating to a said program within your system. Helpful when you're experiencing setting related issues with a program.

Then, try using a archived website that hosts older versions of Skype to reinstall.

I have a hp pavillion dv 9700 i upgraded it with windows 7 and my mouse keeps jumping around all over while im typing. It did do this before when i had vista and I think that i downloaded a driver to fix...


Hi,
I believe I can help in what you are experiencing with your jumping cursor concern. you mentioned that you downloaded a driver, try downloading touch freeze, google it it will give you links where to download it and it is free, this should fix your jumping cursor issue

any of the links will lead you to the downloads page for the application.
once downloaded this is what you should see on your task bar, see image below. an icon of a touchpad with a check mark on it.

Belkin wireless router


there is a possibility that the router that you have has a problem with the firmware or the device itself.

You can try several solutions, you can go to the setup page of the router and change the MTU of the device. If that does not work, firmware upgrade should be done on the router.

The router's firmware can be downloaded from this site: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&aid=5027

Once the firmware has been downloaded, you need to access the router's setup page and update the router's firmware there.

1. Connect a computer wired to the router
2. Open an Internet Explorer and type 192.168.2.1 and leave both user name and password blank
3. Find Firmware Upgrade, search for the file and load it
4. After it has been successful, reset the router for 10 seconds then run the setup CD

DAP Download Accelerator Plus problem


Hi,

First check whether the file you ae downloading is only the mentioned size or it is more than what it is mentioned.

Once i got the same problem, when i am downloading a file it showed only 698mb but it downloaded 785mb and then the download is completed.After that everything is fine.

Dont worry wait for some time or leave it & see it will complete the download.

May be it could be the error in mentioning the file size or something.

I know this one.

Be cool continue downloading.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
