You will have to get an account with such services as Yahoo messenger or hotmail and then this will allow you to call your grandson again. I have tried both and hotmail puts less other stuff on your computer and is clear but you can't do multiple conversations at once. Yahoo charges about a penny a minute and I use it to talk to my brother in Shainhi. It is nice to talk to my Mother out of state. It is easy enough to use that she gets it going from a retirement home with no problem.
I can talk to you live to walk you through the yahoo setup and then practice with you on yahoo with my account if you want. You will also have to consider if your grandson's system is up and running and what service he is using. Better find that out first so you can be on the same type.
Let me know how I can help. I made a mission of getting 5 family members started up on this so we could all talk more.

How to disable the hp internal web cam so I can use an external web cam? Thank you!

Just connect the external web-cam.
Then, open the software that uses a web-cam, and configure it to select the external web-cam, rather than "defaulting" to the internal web-cam.

Web cam / sling box

Salutations Stearns,

As I am sure you are aware, the Slingbox is designed to allow you to watch any video source remotely from any computer with an internet connection.

A web-cam would be slightly different, normally web-cams do not have video output, they normally have a USB or Fire-wire connection. There are some software packages and web-cams that allow for remote activation and viewing. These units and programs should be able to be found under "Home Automation" or "Home Monitoring"

Hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.
