Skype and other messaging systems

I have had problems lately with my messaging.
I bought a webcam which has an integral mic. However try as I might I have to shout at the thing to be heard and am also finding feedback the other end.
I then went back to using headset mic, but simply not using the mic on the cam.
I can't tell if there is actually something wrong with the headset as when I do a Skype test call it comes out fine!
I have a woofer? box and two great speakers. I find when I look at the master volume that it visibly slides backwards as I look on!
Sorry, guys, but here is a dunce with yet another problem! It is frustrating when I want to speak to my friends but cannot be heard.
I have tried all the usual things with the volume and settings and recording levels, but do not seem to be making much progress!
