QuickCam is screwing up

Dear Michael and all CU-SeeMe'ers,

I just got a Performa 600.

The 'sound alerts' (quacking, beeping, etc.) in Sound control work fine,
UNTIL I run QuickCam.

Then they don't; or rather I can hear them VERY faintly IF I use my
earphones.

The same holds true with anything I record using QuickCam, whether using
the builtin mike or the QuickCam mike. The monitored sound is great,
while I'm recording, even the delayed sound I get when using the QuickCam
mike.

But when I go to *playback*, it's really crappy---the next thing to
inaudible.

Even if I then shut *down* QuickCam, the Mac sounds (beeping etc.) *still*
won't work until I reboot!

I have all volume controls set to max.

Needless to say, I can't hope to do CU-SeeMe audio in this situation.

Please help!!! I will be your best friend forever! Thank you very much.
