Hi linda - when you're on Skype, do you have a green check mark icon on your task bar or something else?

Why won't the camera on my Gateway ZX4971G-UW20P be recognized by skype?


It might be your camera is not on the Skype support list.
What make and model laptop, with what version of Windows?
What version of Skype are you running? You can get the Skype version at Help > About Skype.
Have you tried going to Tools > Options > Video Settings? If you click on the down arrow next to the Select Webcam selection, is your camera not listed?
In Device Manager, is your camera listed under Imaging Devices?

Why everytime i used skype and google chrome for the same time, my pc is freezing and slowly run


Then try not to use both of them at the same type. :)

Skype requires at least 256 MB of RAM and Google Chrome requires at least 128MB. Depending on what you are doing on Chrome and if you are video calling in Skype, you may be pushing the upper limits of your memory. This could be just one observation, but this would be hard to determine without a lot of other information.

If this has recently started happening, then you may want to look here:

I don't know how to access my webcam


Hello:
For the majority of webcam uses, you would use a separate program that accesses the webcam. Examples include: If you only want to record videos and take pictures, you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. You can download it at http://explore.live.com/windows-live-movie-maker?os=other

I set up skype on my dad's laptop and mine. We could see each other but not hear each other. I tried to fix the sound and now he can hear me...but we can't see other. I've spent hours on this and can't...


Normal 0 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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Skype doesn't quite work...


I have the same hardware and application without problems.
If the internet connection shows no issues, but only the Skype application is having troubles, I would suggest to troubleshoot the Skype applciation.
Check in Skype for any possible other applications causing "load" on the Skype application;
- Advanced
- Settings
- Advanced
- Click on the sentence : manage other applications using Skype and see if there is anything "odd".

It would be nice to hear from you to see if anything helps.
