I have a compaq pasario 5716 with pentium III Desktop computer. Has only 384.0MB RAM. HD space is11GB. The OS is W98. with Internet Exployer version 6. To update this computer I think I need to replace...


Don't bother upgrading that old thing.

You can pick up a much better second hand Pentium 4 for $60 or so, and even Windows XP can only handle about 4 Gigs of RAM.

Very few Pentium 3s will support a 2Gig module in each slot. Just because they sell 2 Gig sticks does not mean they will work in your computer.

If you want to know how much memory your old machine will hold and support, just go to:

WWW.CRUCIAL.COM

When you get there, run their SCAN MY COMPUTER utility.

This will tell you exactly how much memory and what type you currently have installed, how many memory slots are available on the motherboard, how much each slot will support individually, as well as the maximum total amount of RAM that the motherboard will support.

Good luck.

I suggest to reinstall the driver and see if the issues reappear ..remove all trace of the driver in computer by uninstalling it and delete the folder in program files ..and after that install it clean ..It may be a virus or something in conflict so only use it single when you capture..

Can not activate my webcam of my Apple Macbook (white) via skype..sound is ok both sides..i can only see the other party ..but they can not see me


First check that your isight camera is working by going to applications and selecting the application photo booth. If your isight is working you will see yourself in the photobooth window. Now if it is working open skype, first check that you have the latest version of skype by going to the skype menu and then check for updates. Once you have the latest version go to the skype menu again then preferences then under the video make sure that the enable Skype video checkbox is checked and you can check the start my video automatically checkbox as well. Then close the preferences window. Hope this helps.

How to update SAA7130 TV Turner/FM


In order to update it you need to find the manufacturer's website.
Then look for driver and firmware updates.
Select the update that matches the version of Windows that you are using.
Download the update and follow the instructions to install it.

FYI: Your system is way to slow for this product to function properly. I wouldn't mess with a tuner without at least a 2.8 P4, 2GB RAM and a dedicated video card with 256MB RAM.

Good luck!

Skype runs slow on video


You absolutely need more RAM. I have 2.4GHz processor with 2GB RAM and Skype video runs pretty smooth.

Since your computer is 10 yrs. old, you may not even be able to install enough RAM to make it "good".

If I can be of more assistance, use the Comment button to reply.

Hercules Webcam not being recognized by USB


Normal 0 Try disconnecting 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

start with your webcam off, Go toTools, options, video settings. Click on Enable Skype video and Startmy video when Skype turns on. Then select "default video device".

scan your computer and see if there's any virus on it
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

or check for trojan or malwares, or spyware
http://www.safer-networking.org/

see if your computer and os can satisfy the requirements of skype:
  • System requirements
  • PC running Windows 2000, XP or Vista. (Windows 2000 users require DirectX 9.0 for video calls).
  • Internet connection – broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
  • Speakers and microphone – built-in or separate.
  • For voice and video calls we recommend a computer with at least a 1GHz processor, 256 MB RAM and of course a webcam.
  • ForHigh Quality Video calls you will need a highquality video webcam andsoftware, a dual-core processor computer and afast broadbandconnection (384 kbps).
