I have a built in webcam. When on audio/video call, I can see my contacts/they can see me. I can talk, they can hear me. I cannot hear them, the volume is very static and the static does not go away.
When on audio call only, there is no problem at either end.
After turning the webcam on, and discontinuing the conversation, the light for the camera stays on....does not go away until I reboot.
Can you help? Thank you, Lise
Could be something wonky about your video camera, or wonky about how they designed the laptops. Laptop webcam's are not as reliable as I would have liked them to be. Most have compatibility issues with most software, or can't be used with more than one piece of software before you have to reboot to get it to work again.

This will depend on which messenger program you are using ? Skype Double-click the "Skype" icon on your desktop and log in with your username and password. Click "Tools" at the top of the screen, and then click "Options." Click "Video" in the dropdown menu. The blue icon on the left will display your video options. Check "Enable Skype Video." You'll now have access to Skype video settings. Set up your webcam connection. It should already be connected to your computer with drivers installed. Select the webcam from the dropdown list and test it again to make sure it works. Set your video call preferences below. You can have video start automatically if you check--what else?--"Start my video automatically." Click "Save" in the bottom right to save your settings. To make a video call, click the video button on your contact list or click "Start Video" once you are already in a call. MSN Messenger Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture. Click the "Webcam" icon. Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to. Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin. Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again. Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer. b> Show or Hide Your Webcam b> Open MSN Messenger on your computer. Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list. Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse. Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams. Yahoo The Internet has made it possible for people thousands of miles apart to communicate in real time without having to rely on making long distance phone calls. Emailing and instant messaging are fantastic tools, but with broadband Internet access it's now possible to see one another, too. If you have a webcam, you're ready to use video conferencing with friends and family around the globe. Yahoo Messenger is the perfect place to get started.
Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already. Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting. Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend. Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active. Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams. Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires. Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed. Hope this helps b>
i assume your asus is a laptop with a built in webcam, theres always a driver disk when you bought your laptop you can find the webcam drivers there..just make sure you select the appropriate operating system..just in case you misplaced it go to asus website, look for support then search your model and download the necessary drivers..that should fix your problem...if your using windows 7 i dont think that would be an issue because it will automatically load standard drivers for your webcam..
If you use a program such as skype or google talk for example it should detect the camera and allow you to use it. Basically you need a program that calls upon the use of the camera to use it. (It should normally be listed as hardware in device manager and the twain driver be present). I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions. I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

When you had bought the motherboard, processors and other accessories from your retailer (for an assembled PC), or bought a trademarked PC or Laptop, they had certainly given you a CD containing DRIVERS compatible for your system which includes drivers for AUDIO, VIDEO, GRAPHICS CARD, WEBCAM, and others depending your system configuration. Now, just find out the CD and install those drivers included in it and you are done! By the way, if you have WINDOWS Vista^TM or Se7en^TM installed, you don't need such type of audio drivers at all! These OS have in-built audio and video drivers in it.
Have you tested the webcam's microphone on your own computer? It is an easy test. You can use any audio program such as Goldwave or the sound recorder found under XP Accessories--Entertainment. Additionally you can open Control Panel, select Sound and Audio Devices. Select the Voice tab.On the bottom right there is a Test hardware button. Another common problem is that certain software can mute the microphone when launched. You can check this by clicking the Volume icon in the systray. When it opens the window check to see if the mute is clicked anywhere. Uncheck if mute is checked. Finally, your soundcard manufacturer may have an icon in control panel. An example is RealTek HD Audio Sound effect manager. You may find a tab identifying the mixer. There is usually a series of adjustments for Mic Volume, Line Volume, and Stereo Mix. Make certain that the Mic Volume is not muted.
