Re: Skype programme downloaded but not connected to...
See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video. Also send this to your familyand friends so they have there computer setup properly. Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with.Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up tobroadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe Audio and Video to function properly.

your box has most likely lost communication with your providers server. most boxes these days download the program guide over the internet. so if you still have your channels (come from a cable)but have no guide info its probably because your box has lost the internet.
Download a "stress" testing programme called Prime95 and read instructions / run it through. I assume that ALL the ram matches perfectly. If this tester crashes PC alot, remove one ram stick at a time, may actually narrow the offender down. Also bear in mind that a programme could also be crashing PC so try using control Alt Del and go into "processes" and shut down ONE at a time / retest. This will take time but will narrow down the offender. You actually only need to run Prime 95 for a short time.....till it crashes PC. Eventually once you have stability the PC should run with no probs overnight!!
Did you install propper version ? Go to Skype website and download from there from WinMo section and reinstall. Wi-fi should work fine, but try3G settings as it won't work on GPRS/EDGE.(only chat). Also you can try FRING.
Thus far I have not resolved the problem, however I have now completely un-installed the Skype Programme, I have been in touch with Skype Support who are looking into the probl;em and then will get in touch with me, however I also lost the ability of accessing my e-mails and sending them, in order to recover from this, I have had to turn off my complete security, eg virus, firewall and spam filter, so I wait to see what the outcome is.
I had he same problem connecting to the internet after downloading the updates for Windows XP. It turn out to be that the surcurity downloads are to harsh for some anti virius programmes, and I was told to uninstall my free version of Zone Alarm and try to connect to the internet again. This I did do and was able to connect to internet again. I have since re-installed the Zone Alarm programme and I am able to use the internet once again with the above working.
I cant see reason why changing a service provider would cause problems with your web cam, unless the software provided has a built in firewall/internet security programme and it is blocking any attempt your cam is trying to connect to the internet.
If this is the case then there will be an options or preferences, or exception menu within it and make sure that the instant messenger programme you are using isn't being blocked.
You may need to disconnect the camera and uninstall the camera software and reconnect and reinstall and see if the security programme pops up and advises you as to whether to allow it to run or not, but, if nothing shows try another instant messenger programme, preferably Windows live messenger, as this would be allowed and is compatable with most cams and other instant messenger programmes.
