    Hi Crisben,



    Depending on the type of program and webcam software you're using, there coulfd be many possibilities. Please let me know:




    1. Which program are you using (yahoo, msn, AIM, etc)

    2. Which brand of web cam are you using?

    Thank you.

I can't find the icon to have a web cam conversation...it is usually at the bottom right corner of the screen...it is a little man...what do I do?...it dissappeared ...how?...i don't know!


It sounds like you are using chating program such as MSN or AOL. If you can't see it in the bottom right corner, you can check whether there is a arrow on the edge of that bottom right corner, you can click on the arrow to show more icons there. Sometimes the system is set to hide the idle icons in the bottom right corner. You can undo that by right clicking there and choose properties from the pop-up menu and then select the Notification Area tab or something like the System Tray tab depending on the Operating System installed. Then you will see the option to Hide Idle Icons. You can uncheck it to see all the icons.
If the icon is still not there, start it from the Start menu. It should be under Program and Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Messenger or something like those. If your computer freeze when doing that, you might need to restart, or choose ALT-DEL-CONTROL and select Start Task Manager and kill the process about MSN or AOL. Don't hesitate to turn to me if any questions. Thanks.

When I start my comp it says keyboard failure and I am unable to use the keyboard or the mouse at all


Check and make sure the keyboard is connected tightly. Please also make sure that the mouse and keyboard are not in the wrong ports. Then if the problem is still there you either need a new keyboard or the port has gone bad.

As your software improves so does the programs that you are using. Go to the Tree Maker website and download the program for windows xp and there is a update file that lets you upload your information from previous versions you have used. I hop this is helpful and Good Luck

Unable to open live TV in HP PC Media Center


Look at the alerts in the security and firewall of Norton antivirus. It might be blocking it. also keep an eye on your bottom right corner when you attempt the live TV. Norton may be alerting you about the blocks in that area. Make sure you allow those connections. I would check Norton firewall and security before messing with the Windows firewall.

Windows live messenger sign in error code 81000306


That means Windows Live Messenger is unable to contact the authentication server.

Open up Live Messenger and go to Tools and go to Options. Under Connection Settings, choose Advanced Settings. Make sure there are nothing in the proxy fields. Make sure the SOCKS area has nothing in it and click okay until you get back to the Messenger window and try to sign in.

If that doesn't work and you are running Windows Vista, click start, type: cmd, right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications, click Run As Administrator, type the following: "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled", rress enter, restart your computer”

Hope this helps!
