Sorry if this is a repost but the stupid login just went haywire.

Hey i saw that you had a problem with your affinity dryer ripping \012clothes in another post. I've had the same thing happen with our dryer. \012Ours was caused by clothes catching on the lint screen edges. The \012solution is to lift out the lint screen and use an unwound coat hanger \012or something similar to clean INSIDE the hole where it came out. When it\012 gets dirty, the lint screen is held up a few millimeters and leaves a \012gap for clothes to catch on.
I am not familar with AOL but OK with Skype.\015\012If you have a WEB camera you need to configure your video Webcam settings.\015\012Open Skype click on Tools - Options - Video Settings - select your Webcam model.\015\012 \015\012Then you need to configure your microphone settings.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.\015\012
If you still have problems with your mic. then -\015\012To test if the microphone is working, go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and record you voice. Can you see your voice recording, the green line should vary as you speek.
If you see a flat green line, then the microphone is either faulty or the wrong microphone is selected.
