Windows 7: Skype, with video on I can't be heard

Skype, with video on I can't be heard

I have a new PC with Windows 7 Home Premium. I installed the latest Skype 5.0.0. I am using a Microsoft VX3000 webcam. If I turn on the video the people I am talking to say the sound breaks up and is distorted. The sound is good without the video, and the video is good when turned on but distorts the sound. The cam worked fine on my old PC with Win XP. Does anyone out there have a similar problem?
