powerbook 540 problems

We've been using cuseeme successfully on several platforms
with the connectix quickcam. Recently, however, we got
a PowerBook 540 and ran into two problems.

First, I can't seem to get either a plaintalk microphone
nor the older round Mac microphone to work when plugged
into the "stereo" port on the back of the 540. The
vendor who sold us the machine also sold us a plaintalk
mike, but I don't think that's the right mike. Which
mike should I be using?

The second problem is that, after installing the quickcam
on the printer port and disabling appletalk, I still get
only a white screen. This happens with both the quickpix
application and with cuseeme. Since installing this
camera has always been a piece of cake, I'm baffled by
this problem. The camera works when attached to other
Macs, including a powerbook 180, in the same configuration.

Any guidance you can provide via email would be appreciated.
