    I have been using Skype fine and just two days ago the sound from me to the other party has stopped. I cannot resolve it through any of the sound or mic windows within my computer. I plugged in some external speakers a few nights ago to watch a movie. Could this have done anything? Any suggestions? HP Pavillion dv9000

    thank you - Karmen

Normal 0 Install the software with the camera disconnected from the USB port and install the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


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.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. 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:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

I want the definition of a Web cam is not known


A WEB CAM can be any camera used to provide pictures to be sent over the WEB. Some WEB sites use very expensive equipment to give continous, live views from a building or other location, whereas MY WEBCAM is built into the top of my laptop computer screen, and only sees me and what's around me at 3 feet distance from the laptop, so I can be seen by my grandkid, and if they have a WEBCAM, I can see them, while we chat over the WEB. Hope that helps

HP web cam software doesn't see built in camera


It might be a good idea to download the latest software for your Camera as it is never up to date when you purchase Webcams. Always get the latest software drivers/programs for new hardware.
Before you load up the new driver check for any special instructions that came with the cam as you may need to uninstall the old software first. Sounds like it's corrupted anyway. Good luck

Web cam wont turn on for video chat on AOL IM or skype


Look at the task tray where the clock is. Look for a icon that looks like a webcam. Is there one?
If there isnt one you will need to install the Drivers and software that came with your webcam.
If you cant find it, reply with the brand and model number
