Send this to your sister as she needs to setup her Audio & Video for the messenger she uses to talk to you on.

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:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next "Calling and Devices" on the right, set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or headphones/mike.
Next go to the Test Audio section below where you just setup the microphone & speaker and (written in blue) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".
Then click OK and it should work.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
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:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
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
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
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. Hope this helps. Bud

Windows on the passanger side front and back won't work, up or down


some of these newer cars have an electrical cut out made into the system so it childproofs the controls..this option may have failed entirely on your vehicle.. its usually a switch or relay issue..I have found in my experiences with auto electrical that if you attach a battery charger to the car in place of the battery itself(disconnect it entirely) that some relays will buzz if they are stuck or not working right..try this and see what it does..

There is nothing you can do about that, the LCD screen has been cracked. There is a liquid inside the LCD screen that is the black globs that you describe.
You cannot replace it, you can still take pics with it ....or you will have to purchase a new one.

Very sorry about your luck.Thank you for trying Fixya!

Sylph again ps3 freeze


This is sounding like a faulty Video Card - The game is running smoothly but the video has frozen it is unfortunate that you have encountered this as it is a particually rare problem with the PS3 - However if you contact Sony support and are still under warranty they will replace it for you - I hope this was of some help to you and hope you have better luck in the future,

Ipod nano 8GB 3rd generation FROZEN!


hi,

Firstly, don't worry about your ipod, i had the exact same problem with mine and with 3 of my friends here in athens!

Just leave it frozen untill it drains out of battery,
then try plugging it on your pc and leave it plugged for a while,
after doing that try to open it.

NOTE: my ipod opened after this step and worked properly.

If the ipod still don't works you can do the same as my sister did.
Take the ipod to your sales man and get a software update or replace it (if you are still in guarantee period)

Hope i helped,
Looking forward to hearing from you for further assistance!

Pics have round balls in them


I have that problem too. I think it's dust inside the lens. See if you can find a way to open it up and clean it.
