Right Click the volume icon in the taskbar.
Select RECORDING DEVICES, Select the device you wish to use. Click properties.
Ensure it says ENABLE (use this device).
Then Click the ADVANCED TAB at the top and make sure it is set to "ALLOW APPLICATIONS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THIS DEVICE".
Then open the Messenger software you use and click the tool tab. Then click the Cam/Audio option.
Make sure you have the correct mic/cam selected.
Fergal0, I am wondering if you have accidentally puy your cam in one of those fun modes like the ones that distorts the picture or turns it into 4 color pictures etc. I don't know what it is called on your model but the menu for this is called video effects. I know where it is on Logitech quick cams but not for yours. I suggest you just try looking at these setting options and see if you can make it change to something else and if so then you are in the right place and just have to find how to turn this off. Let me know what kind of camera you have and what kind of menus you have available if this does not give you a good hint.
