There is no sounds coming from it

This webcam doesnt have a speaker if that is what you mean? If you want to hear audio you need to have a set of speakers connected to your computer. This camera DOES have a built in microphone so that others can hear you when you talk.
If you need help getting the microphone working please comment back and I can try to help further. (If that is the problem please confirm whether or not you can at least see any video coming from the camera and just no audio, or can you not get the camera working at all?).
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

Check to see what the default recording device is set to in your windows sound control panel.

Look for a device with "USB" or "webcam" in the title, that should be your webcam, if you don't see USB, try each option in turn

Make sure that you have the Microphone pointed to your webcam within SKYPE. I know that with Ventrillo you need to set it up to see the device within the program. I would look for options within Skype.

We both see eachother and they can hear me but i cant hear them

It is an easy fix on Skype, I am assuming that is the program you are using for video conferencing. If not you will have to do just about the same thing to correct it. In Skype go to the tools selection on the top bar, select options from the menu, select audio settings and use the drop down selection list and change the source to the USB Mic on the camera from the current selection. You should be able to hear them once this is done. In other programs you need to do just about the same thing since windows uses the default mic. plug in the back of the computer. You just have to change it to the correct source for the mic. Good Luck, RAC
