Not working on msn, it was working before i installed software in order to get an icon so i could change the settings


Make sure Microsoft DirectX is installed and up to date

Set your webcam mic (if it has one as default)
Vista - If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.
Plug in the webcam

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

If it fails to work here concentrate on your webcam drivers and software before moving forward.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Troubleshooting with ge webcam


Most likely you just need to unmute your mic. You can get to it by clicking on the Volume icon in your task bar (bottom right hand portion of your screen). You may need to click on Options and then Properties if you do not see the Mic control. Make sure there is a green checkmark on Mic and click ok. Then you should see the Mic settings on the panel. Make sure the mic is not muted.
