AIM video chat. - April 29th 2009, 03:12 AM

So, I just got a webcam to talk to my girlfriend on because she lives in another city. The first time we used it, it worked fine. Then I had to go eat so we got out of it. Next time we tried, she couldn't hear me. We tried again and again, sometimes IM would come up with a message to me saying something like, "Attention: You don't have a webcam." and I clearly do because she can see me, just not hear anything. I made sure it was plugged in, my dad who's really good with a computers even checked it out and he can't find anything. I uninstalled all the software and it's not good. I just got the webcam today. Anyone have any clue what the problem may be?
It's also called GL Perfect Image Webcam, if that may help at all.


When you fall, don't always expect someone to pick you up. Do it yourself, you're stronger then you think. Brush yourself off and keep your head high.

Have you tried to reboot your computer? Alternatively, have you restarted AIM?

No and no, but I can't try anything till we next talk on it and I don't know when that will be since she's at school. I didn't think I'd need to do either though.

Try making sure you've installed the program right and all the necessary drivers are on your computer. If you're missing a driver, try going into the support chat [chatting live with a technician] if the company who made your webcam has one on their website.

It might also be AIM acting up - consider using other messaging programs such as MSN or skype when you want to cam with her.

If that still doesn't work, return the webcam and try replacing it.
