Assuming you are using a version of windows your most likely problem is you have not set up a driver for your sound card...(whether embedded in the motherboard or a seperate board) assuming you have one. If you are not getting a plug and play prompt when you first boot go to your control panel and select add/remove hardware...follow the dialogues from there and be sure to have your sound card CD or your motherboard (if your sound card is embedded in your motherboard) cd handy. Am guessing the former by the way as "if" it was on your motherboard you would have had to have used that CD and it would have installed the driver.

Should be that simple (or complex depending on your experience level)....good luck. Tango

My video is not working.. person cant see me

Do you mean webcam
if so which communucation app /skype/yahoo/google
Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your web cam from there
if you are have trouble with your web cam.
Click start control panel administrative tools ,computer management ,device manager scroll down
image devices you could see a yellow question mark ? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash andQuicktimesoftware are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c- Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

Cant use web based messengers (tried a lot) and cant download msn at work-help~

employemnt places usually block downloads of chat or peer to peer programs. You are there to work not chat to friends. Employers have realised how much time is wasted by employees in these forums and have seen that their IT departments prevent them from being used.

Thanks for using FIXYA

Try updating drivers for web cam, or updating chat application that you are using. Does your web cam work in other applications ? If it does then it is more than likely a problem with your chat application and the best you can do is reinstall or upgrade the chat appli.
Good luck.
