Click OK and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.

Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.

Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.

Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

Solving any jigsaw puzzle no matter how big


Big puzzles can at first seem to be very daunting, but when you complete it you feel a great sense of accomplishment. It doesn't matter if your puzzle is 50 peices or 1000 pieces using the same technique you are able to solve the puzzle no matter how intricate the image may be.

Always start by separating all the pieces according to whether they are edges or not, when you have separated all the pieces take the edges and start putting together your boarder. This helps give you a nice starting point and it gives you an idea of the size of the puzzle.

Once the border is completed if you are working with friends or family you can split up with image inside, like if its a landscape one could do the sky while another does the ground. I find it easiest to pull out all the pieces that go with the area you want to work on and lay them out facing you to see what matches.

After the big parts of the puzzle are completed the smaller things will begin to fall into place and before you know it the puzzle will be finished!
