Preferred Solution: Facebook Messenger video call issues (Moved from Windows 7 forum)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Whenever I press the video call button, a notification appears which says "Turn On Camera. In your device settings make sure Messenger is allowed to use your camera." and has only two options "Cancel" and "Open Settings".
I went to Camera Privacy Settings and Messenger was already allowed by default to use it, but still whenever I press the video call button I get the same notification.
The webcam works fine on the facebook site.

Hi,

so I got browser issues with Firefox and Chrome on Windows 7.

1/. Firefox, takes about 40 seconds to load, I have cleanly reinstalled it several times and removed all add-ons/extensions except adblockplus. The slow upload is very frustrating and it baffles me why it takes so long. Any advice on what could be seriously slowing it down would be great.

2/. Chrome, loads up fast, but cannot seem to install adblockplus, keeps saying "network error" on chrome even when logged in to gmail. Also if i click anywhere in a field/cell on an open page I get an annoying advertising pop-up. Also, these two extensions "jointheshop" and "rocketsaler" keep installing themselves even after removal.

I have run avg 2015 scan (free edition), also spybot and advanced system care 7, but no virus/bugs etc comes up. Also, my system has 4gb ram and a duo core 3ghz processer, so fast enough to handle apps.

Please advise, thanks for help.

Thanks

Last night, I came home to find that one of my screens on my PC was grey with loads of white lines through it. I had to force it shut down, and I saw the error "Video Card Error". I have the new AMD Crimson Driver which I've heard can be buggy.

It has done this kind of thing when it over heats but the PC was idle with the screens off so I wouldn't think it got that hot.

Another thing to note was that I swapped from a Pentium G3258 to an i5 4690k, which seemed fine until I got this thing... What do you guys think was the issue?

Thanks,

Hi, I have been doing video calls with no problems until today. Instead of a picture of the person I'm talking to I have a picture of a webcam with a red cross through it. They can see me and hear me and I can hear them. My OS is XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit. Is this a problem from their side or mine? Thanks for your help.
 

A:Windows Live Messenger video call problem

i'm having the same issue, but from the other side of the coin. I'm calling someone and I can see and hear them fine, but they can't see me. I'm running win 7. I suspect it has something to do with the latest update for live messenger.

Come on Microsoft knock this crap off. My family and I will be moving to a different im provider, maybe google if they don't get their act together.

If anyone knows of a solution, i'd also be interested.

So I got a new Lenono G50-70 for Christmas, pretty basic laptop and I thought it would be simple to use, and it is bar connecting to the wifi

Every time I restart my laptop I have the issue of not being able to connect to the Internet, there's a lot of electronics around the house using wifi and none of these are affected so it must be the laptop surely?

Hi All!

So I?ll take it from the top?.

I installed a program and got a virus on my computer which in front of my eyes was going through the Command Prompt and adding something so I quickly turned off my computer in hope that this would stop it from infecting my computer more than what it already did.

After I turned it back on I went straight into safe mode to start removing any viruses, ransomware, worms, trojan horses, rootkits, keyloggers, dialers, spyware, adware, malicious BHOs, rogue security software and other malicious programs through the MalwareTips website I always use to remove adware.

I removed a lot of the virus with these multiple scans however some things I noticed were not fixed.

First thing I realised was that I was unable to open some programs which after some research was due to a Hidden Built-In Administrator being on. I don?t remember what I did to fix this however I?m now able to access programs.

Ever since the virus, removing the virus and changing administrator settings I have since run into these issues:

1. Programs on computer keep flickering and ?not responding?, programs sometimes freeze and stop working. Main programs I have been using are: google chrome, File Explorer, Microsoft applications (word, excel, outlook 2013)

2. Sound on computer not working or showing as item on task bar. Will only work when I play a video on the internet, will not work with anything else. ** See image of task bar settings below

I have been using MSN Messenger for years and enjoyed this IM program, but have been having problems using the Video Call option when trying to talk and see my contacts.
Whenever I select the Video Call action, the whole MSN Messenger freeze up and I will have to use the Task Manager to close it down.
If I choose the webcam invitation and the regular audio call, using each invitation by themselves and respectively, they work just fine.

Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality (fixed)

Hi All,

I am having a few problems with webcam calls with my folks.

I have installed the latest versions of Skype and Windows Live Messenger on both machines but when using either one for webcam video calls their audio and video coming to me is absolutely fine and so is my video to them however my audio to them is delayed, juddery, and robotic/gravelly (as if i have a sore throat). It is the same in both programs.

Zone Alarm on both machines is configured to allow these programs to run as they wish but still the problem persists.

We both have broadband at speeds usually no lower than 3mb.

Any help apreciated.
Rob
 

A:Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality

skype is heavily dependant on bandwidth. I use it here in Iraq and with phone calls can be garbled if bandwidth is insufficient. However, it would seem in your case, the problem may be firewall related. I would ensure that all your ports are open for skype. I don't recommend zonealarm as it interferes with many programs.

Hi. First let me say that I do have working internet access. I use Firefox and works fine. My kid plays games and I play my Xbox 360 live at the same time. I currently do not have any virus softare running outside of the default XP firewall and updated Windows Defender program...with that said...

I cant connect using my Internet Explorer. When I open it it just times out and I get that blank "check you connection, check your address" message page. And this happened before i installed the newsest version of IE.

Also, I cant now connect with my Windows Messenger service, it trys to login then I get an connection error message there to, something like "check name, account" I think there was also something about a proxy server? Dont recal.

And, when I use firefox and go to www.gamespot.com...when I click on the videos to watch, i see in the WMP applicatin that its shows connecting...then buffering...then nothing...just goes blank and does not play...never used to do this before.

So please help...What is going on here? Why is this impacting only my WIndows internet type applications. I can play videos in other sites, just not gamespot.com... I cant launch my browser and connect, i cant launch the messanger since now i upgraded to the new one, and that one is integrated I think with IE...so there both dead.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

The file is related to the back up program you mentioned. The program is not free. Did you purchase it or download the free trial? If the latter then it's possible the trial has expired and you have to decide if you want to purchase it or uninstall it.

If you purchased it, perhaps some security software is interfering.

The formula is doing it's function properly, but I need to find a formula that will keep the P6 column on the specific date it was entered and not change the next day. The Q6 column is doing it's function and just providing a date 30 days from P6; that one was pretty simple. But I'm coming across issues with P6 and would love some assistance as the end users are using the copy & paste function to enter data and the P6 column is automatically entered with a date. That date should stay the same from when the end user used the copy & paste function.

Hi everybody :
I'm going through my options of adding a second hard drive. I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Motherboard. Windows 7 Professional-32 bit. My "main" drive is a WD5003ABYX 500Gb Western Digital HD.
I'm thinking about the option of an SSD. I noticed, on my MB, there is a connector for a SSD drive. It's labeled "mSATA". I did a little research on this. Is it still possible to buy an mSATA drive ? I did some checking, and some of the prices on "regular" SSDs aren't that bad....some around $89. I'd post a pic of this connector, but between the size of the photo file, and being able to attach photos in this forum (I don't think it's possible). I know this much, with a "regular" SSD, I'd probably have to get an adapter, so I could use one of the bays in my tower. Even, if it's NOT possible to be able to find an mSATA, it's not the end of the world.

Hello

I'm trying to create a VPN, but I'm having a lot of trouble.
I'll tell you what I've done so far.

First, I went to Network Connections, File, Incoming New Connection, Selected my account, "Through Internet", and Allow Access.

Then I went to my reuter's (Thomson TG784n) webpage, Games and Application Sharing, Assign and assigned the PTPP server to my PC (I used the IPv4 IP), ticked the log box and clicked Add.

Then I went back to my computer, to Network and Sharing Center and Configure New Connection or Network (or something like that, my PC is not in English). Then I selected Connect to local workplace, then Through Internet or VPN or something like that (it's the 1st option), then I put my PC's IPv4, the same one I assigned the PPTP server to.
Then I went to the connections and connected to the VPN using my account Username and Password.

Then the problems started.
First, after connecting, the Ethernet connection would become "Limited" and the connection would fail. After some investigation, I went to the VPN's properties, IPv4, Advanced and unchecked "Use preset gateway on remote connection'' and did the same for IPv6. Then I could connect to the VPN. I'm not sure if it worked or not, but my Internet became slower.

I'm not sure if it worked because when I tried to connect my android phone to the VPN, it didn't. On my phone, I went to "Add new VPN", then I put a r... Read more

It is a temp file cleaner. You can use it OR use something like Ccleaner [which is what I use]
As for how often to run, that depends on how much you use the system AND how much time you spend online. Once a week should be fine however if you are online a LOT, run it more often.

Please, why do I have to update my Intel Graphics Driver everyday to get the cooling fan to work?
Toshiba Satellite P-70-A Win 8.1
It shows - C:\Users\Betty\AppData\Local\Temp\23.43.45.TC00576000C.b
Does this mean at shut down it is deleted? Won't allow me to change destination.
Have spent days trying to find a solution. Cheers.

what you could also try is removing iTunes completely before trying to install the latest, here is how

Hi, and welcome to TSG.

Am I safe to assume that you are using section breaks to switch between page orientations and also putting page numbers in a header and/or footer? If so, you need to change the formatting of the page numbers in the sections to continue from the previous section, rather than start over. The exact method of doing so will depend upon the exact version of MS-Word you are using. It might involve right-clicking on the page number and selecting the correct format option.
