Go to the Skype website (see the Resources section for links to download Skype for Windows, Mac and Linux users) and download the SkypeSetup.exe executable.

(The software is installed under the Program Files folder in a directory called Skype, which is automatically created. A Skype Setup icon is also automatically created on your desktop.)

Click on the SkypeSetup icon that is on your desktop. A Skype Setup wizard then appears.

You will get a warning window asking if you want to Run or Save this file: SkypeSetup.exe. Click "Run."

Note: Another confirmation message may appear, asking if you are sure you want to run this software. Click "Run" again.

Follow the instructions on the Skype Setup wizard to complete the installation of the Skype software.

At the end of the installation, you will be asked to set up a Skype account.

A Skype window appears, and if you have never used Skype before, you have the option of creating a Skype account. You'll see a link on that window mentioning the following:

"Don't have a Skype name?"

Click on this link, and it opens up another "Skype - Create a New Account" window, where you type in your full name and then type in a Skype name and a Skype password and repeat password in the respective fields on that window.

Note: Jot down your Skype name and password, as you will need them every time you open the Skype application.

Click on the "Sign in" button.

Note: After having created your new Skype account for the first time, the next time you open Skype, your Skype name will automatically appear in the Skype name field. All you need to do is to type in your Skype password and click the "Sign in" button.

Follow the instructions in the "Getting Started" guide to add a contact, using the "Add Contact" button; to test your headset and microphone, using the "Skype Test Call Feature"; to set up a conference call with a business colleague or friend; and to explore all the other features in Skype.

Once you have installed the Skype software, there are two ways in which you can open the Skype software application.

Click on the "Skype" icon on your desktop or double-click on the "x" icon in your desktop's system tray to start Skype at any time.

Note: Once the Skype window comes up, the "x" checkmark then changes to a green checkmark to indicate that the Skype application is currently running on your computer. It changes back to an "x" mark when you have "Signed out" of Skype and Skype is no longer running on your computer.

Buy a driver magician full version installation disk and install it to your computer. After installing it, run the program and for sure, driver magician will automatically detect the driver that your loptop need for it's sound to work properly. Select it and driver magician will download it for you . Install the downloaded loptop sound driver and after you reboot you loptop you shoul be able to hear a sound again from your loptop as if it's driver has not been deleted. Have a nice day my friend, hope this would help you.

How to install external web cam to my loptop

If you have Vista or Windows 7, most web cams will auto install. Simply plug them in and reboot. Some even install right away - again if one of the operating systems, then go to start/devices and printers/ then double click on the new web cam icon to test. if older XP or other, then you will need the driver. You did not specify the make model so I cannot provide a link to the correct software. If new item, it should have a CD that will autoinstall on insert.

If installing for Skype or MSN - you will need to enable through their tools /Options menus. and test

Good luck!

Webcam to dark, donot know how to adjust

I have the same problem on an HP Pavilion dv1000. 
This is what I have discovered. The properties of the webcam (contrast/brightness etc) are not available via Windows anywhere that I can find.
However if you install Skype you can access these properties, its free, its a good voip client and you can turn off the autoload at startup. Go to Tools > Options > Video Settings and you will see a button marked "Webcam Settings" under the "Select webcam:" dropdown. Click on this and you have access to the webcam properties, I found checking the Low Light option on the Advanced tab makes the webcam image much brighter, you can play with the other settings but I didnt bother.
If you then go to My Computer > HP Webcam you will see that the webcam is also brighter there, this seems to be the case even if you exit Skype. Haven't tested it in other apps but it should work ok.
Hope this helps
