Hello lazylady....

first off, you should test your speakers by plugging them into something else like an mp3 player... if that's all fine, then read on... from the simplest down to the more complex problems and solutions...

if you're using a windows os:

sometimes a music/playback program will shut the sound off even if you have left it on in the volume control... if you haven't already done so, you should open all the controls (right click on the icon in your task bar to open them) and check the settings for all the types of sound available, not just that they are on, but the volume levels as well... it may be that something else has turned one or more of them down or off.

you may also want to check the sound and audio settings found in your control panel, be sure that the silence check-box isn't marked and the rest of the settings are correct according to your hardware.

if your hardware isn't showing as an option in one or more places, then you will need to go to the system settings in the control panel, choose the hardware tab and click on the device manager. look for your sound card... if it is marked with anything (usually yellow or red), or it doesn't show at all then there is a problem with your sound card... if it is a plug and play, sometimes just taking it out and putting it back will do the trick... but you can try using the trouble-shooting helper first.

if you do decide to open your computer, be aware that breaking any seals when you do so could void your warranty!!

beyond that, be sure the electrical cable is completely disconnected from any current, touch both your hands to something metallic (unpainted) to remove any static from your body, and be very careful not to loosen any other connections when you remove and replace the card.... if you are wary of any of this, then don't go down this road, take it to a shop.

if it is an on-board device, then you will have to ask the manufacturer to replace it, if it is still under warranty, or buy a plug and play sound card, the price will depend on the quality of sound and the sound banks for midi files, but you can probably find on that's reasonably priced if you don't have great expectations or if you don't need to do any serious musical recordings.

please let me know if you have any more questions, or if any of this works for you :)

best of luck!

I cannot find the "video and voice set up" in yahoo messenger that's why i cannot use my cyberlinkyoucam as my webcam


Yahoo! Messenger offers voice services, such as PC-to-PC, PC-to-cell or PC-to-landline calling. You can also participate in chat rooms and use the voice chat feature instead of typing. However, slow connection speeds or improper settings can interfere with voice activation in Yahoo! Messenger.


Instructions
  1. Step 1 Reduce echoes by using a headset instead of speakers and a microphone. Place the microphone farther away from the speakers, if possible. Adjust the volume of the speakers and the microphone.
  2. Step 2 Verify your Internet connection speed if your friend's voice sounds choppy. The computer modem speed must be 56K or higher in order to send voices or sounds.
  3. Step 3 Go to "Actions" and "Call Setup" in Yahoo! Messenger if you can't hear, or your friend can't hear you. Test the sound by following the instructions that proceed call setup.
  4. Step 4 Click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your computer screen if you want to test the sound manually. Uncheck "Mute," if necessary, and make sure sound levels are above 50 percent.
  5. Step 5 Pick "Preferences" in Yahoo! Messenger if you have trouble with connecting to the voice server. Choose "Connection," then select "No Proxies." Log in to Messenger again to check the voice server.

  2. Step 2 Choose "Webcam" from your Yahoo! Messenger "Preferences" menu and then click one of the following options, "Always ask my Permission," "Allow everyone to view my webcam," or "Always allow the following people to view my webcam."

From there you can also select "Ignore other view requests," if you don't want to allow anyone else to view your webcam. You also have the option to either choose or not choose to select "If I am in a chat room, allow people in the chat room to view my webcam," by clicking the box. If you want to remove anyone who is viewing your webcam, you can select, "Who's watching me?" to remove their name from your viewers list.
  3. Step 3 Click "Webcam" from the "My Webcam" options in your Yahoo! Messenger "Preferences" menu, and choose "Statistics. From there you can figure out how much bandwidth you are using, as your connection mode, frame rate, image size and image capture type.

My yahoo messenger did not opend


Go Start,Control Panel, Add/remove Programs. Click on Messenger,click remove. This should reinstate the older version. If not, Reboot and download it here;

Yahoo 8.1: http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html

9 messenger is in Beta (testing) form and not working well. Stick to 8.1 until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems.

Flash player 10 Does have conflicts,and 9's latest update 9.0.124.0 Can have conflicts with Yahoo and
is causing some Yahoo services to not load.use the link below for a download of Flashplayer #9.0.115.0 should work as it's older then last update. You have to remove the present flash player,(add/remove programs in control panel). reboot then download the older version.
