Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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: Your 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
4. Then click on Audio Video.
5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
· The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
· images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.

After you get your camera installed properly, DO NOT unplug it from the USB port as it will cause
the drivers to be corrupt and render the camera unusable till reinstalled it properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My whatsapp does not want to open on my nokia c3, and it is failing to download again. how can i get it back?


Dear mnqobim,

For S60 symbian operated nokia mobiles: The whatsapp messenger is free for 1 year and its the trail period.And after the trail period i.e., 1 year you have to purchase it for $0.99 USD/year.So,if you've used it for 1 year then the trial period is over and you gotta purchase it.

For S40: I think your phone C3 is S40 and whatsapp for your mobile is not currently supported by the company and also the carriers Airtel, Idea, Vodafone, Tata Docomo and possibly others in India are currently unsupported.So wait for some time until the support is extended by the company

This pc acer z3751 is 2wks old. If i am held up at an internet site for more than a minute, and this happens a lot for the computer is very slow and doesn't yet have any programmes and at the rate of...


Acer z3751 has mother board problems especially when the operating system is being updated. So far Acer service only replaces its mother board when there is a complaint of auto shut down and of having difficulty in starting the systems. I would advise not to replace the mother board if there is such a problem after warranty period and if possible try to extend the warranty period as long as possible to minimise the cost of repairing.

My kingston 8GB cannot open ( Message Show- The semaphore timeout period has expired) please help me. TQ


It sounds as if you have a faulty USB drive, depending on your Operating System, MS Windows / Linux, uninstall the USB drivers under device manager which could be found in the control panel on Windows XP/Vista/7, restart the computer and reinstall the driver's if they don't install back by themselves. But before you start try using your thumb drive on another computer. If you get the same problem, try to reformat the thumb drive, but before you do, be aware that all your information will be lost, and will not be able to be recovered without the appropriate recovery tools.

This doesn't sound like the exact text of an error message... if you can get me an exact quote, that would be helpful. But, the time out period expired sounds like it was failing to communicate with the printer. The first thing to do would be check the cable between the printer and the computer - make sure it's firmly in place on each end. Then, make sure the printer is coming on, and with it on try to install again.

If that doesn't help, please post the exact text of the error message and I will look into it further.

Connecting printer to Windows Vista Laptop


The Lexmark 730 is compatable with the Vista operating system but the driver CD that came with the printer is out of date. I would recommend that you download the lastest driver for the printer from http://downloads.lexmark.com/static/229-1-0-501.html
