Is there anyway I can get rid of voice delay in AIM video chat?

I can't stand hearing my own voice on AIM. This is via headphones or speakers. How do I get rid of this?

The problem is not your local setup, but rather the person with whom you are speaking. You are hearing your voice come through their speakers, picked up on their microphone, and coming back to you. The only way to limit this is to ask the person with whom you are speaking to lower their local speakers, or move their microphone (if possible) away from the speakers. This can be annoying, and I have run into it before, but generally having the other end tweak their setup a bit helps.
You can also direct the person with whom you are speaking to tweak the gain on their microphone, by opening the Sound preference pane and adjusting the Input Volume for the microphone.

  • Is there anyway I can get rid of Lion and get back to Snow Leopard?

    Is there anyway I can get rid of Lion and get back to Snow Leopard?

    Back to Snow Leopard from Lion install method
    Read and print out these instructions, your computer is going to be offline and you wil be cutoff from help until your machine is restored.
    Clear the Desktop, Downloads and Trash of anything you wish to keep by placing their files in the respective Documents, Music, Pictures, Movie folders.
    Disconnect other drives except the sole backup drive.
    Backup ALL your Users folders (Documents, Pictures, Movies, Music etc) manually (drag and drop methods) to a (not TimeMachine) external powered drive (HFS+ journaled formatted in Disk Utility) and disconnect, your going to be wiping the entire boot disk of ALL DATA.
    (warning, everything will be gone and not recovered, OS, programs, files, Windows etc all gone.)
    Note: You might want to hold c and boot off the 10.6 installer disk and use Disk Utility to format the new blank external drive instead of using OS X Lion if that's hosed. Then reboot into Lion and copy files, may be safer that way.
    Here we go!
    Hold c and boot off the 10.6 installer disk that comes with your computer and second screen in just STOP there, don't install OS X yet.
    Look at the Utilities Menu for Disk Utility.
    On the left is the name of your hard drive maker, click it and Erase (format HFS+ Journaled), give it the same drive name as before, and click Erase...
    (note: if you want to "scrub" the drive of old files that haven't been overwritten yet, then use the Security Option > Zero Erase, takes a lot longer)
    This should wipe the drive of ALL partitions (GUID, OS X and 10.7 Recovery, Windows if present)
    When it's done, quit and install OS X 10.6. Then install all your programs from fresh sources and validate/update.
    When you setup a first account, use the same user name as before, this way you can simply drag and drop the content of your previous Users folders from the external drive right back into the new Users folders and everything should work peachy. Links in iTunes to music, playlists and iPhoto links especially.
    Update OS X to 10.6.8 using the Combo Update for best results.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399
    (Note: If your original machine had 10.5 and you want the free iLife that comes with the disks with the computer, then you'll have to install 10.5 first using the same c boot/erase/format methods as above, then update to 10.6 via the disk, then Combo Update 10.6.8)
    Final step optional but highly recommended.
    A lot of people use a Carbon Copy Clone of their boot drive to a new HFS+Journaled external drive (used only for this purpose) as a "hold the option key" bootable backup in case something goes wrong with their boot drive or need to restore to a previous OS X version..  (in addition to TimeMachine drive for more immediate backups.)
    It's not advised to have a Bootable Clone and a TimeMachine partition on the same external drive, as two drives gives hardware protection in case one fails.

  • I plugged in my iPhone to my computer and it erased all of my photos and videos, is there anyway I can get them back?

    I plugged in my iPhone to my computer and it erased all of my photos and videos, is there anyway I can get them back?
    The photos and videos were obviously taken before I plugged it in and I didn't get a chance to back it up. It just synced and erased everything once I plugged it in. The photos and videos were very important to me and it would mean everything to me to get them back. Please help.

    There is more to the story than you're letting on. Possibly prompts from iTunes on your compute when you plugged in the phone that you didn't read before selecting an option...
    The bottom line is, if they are not on your computer as a result of the sync, and you didn't back them up previously, then they are gone.

    Restore the iPhone from your backup.

    Then make sure you sync everything to your computer so you do not lose it.

    Welcome to the Apple community Jack.
    If you mean that Find My Phone is asking for a password to a different Apple ID to your current Apple IDand that ID is a previous version of your current ID, not an entirely different one.
    This feature has been introduced to make stolen phones useless to those that have stolen them.
    However it can also arise when the user has changed their Apple ID details with Apple and not made the same changes to their iCloud account/Find My Phone on their device before upgrading to iOS 7, or if you restore from a previous back up made before you changed your details.
    The only solution is to change your Apple ID back to its previous state with Apple at My Apple ID using your current password, you don’t need access to this address if it’s previously been used with your Apple ID, once you have saved these details enter the password as requested on your device and then turn off "find my phone" and delete the account from your device.
    You should then change your Apple ID back to its current state, save it once again and then log back in using your current Apple ID. Finally, turn "find my phone" back on once again.

  • My lock button broke is there anyway i can get a new iphone for free

    Is there anyway i can get a new iphone for free my lock button got jammed one day and its annoying dealing with it i haven't had my phone for a year either

    Take it in to Apple as only they can decide. If they decide it is a defect covered under the warranty, they will replace it.  If they determine it was caused by something you've done or an accident, then you will have to pay for an out of warranty replacement.  However, Apple will have to make that call, so take it so they can evaluate it.

    I don't think so.  You should post your question with an informative title, not just "HELP".  You may get better replies.  Try this "iPhone Accidentally Restored as iPod - Data Lost"
