    Once we were able to see each other, there was no sound on either end. Both of our LifeCams are new and when I check the volume it is on. Why can't we talk to each other?

Do they have a webcam? They need to config their webcam.

After that, it could be your video card that is giving you the trouble if they have a webcam and its config. Try updating your graphic card to the most current and see if that helps.
