If your webcam has a USB interface, there may be issues with the port. Try all your USB ports. Some USB terminals do not fit well with the USB ports. You may also try installing your hardware in other computers if you have access and find out if it works.

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

If you still have no webcam installed

Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."

The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.

Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next."

Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer.

Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.

Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice.

An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.

Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature.

Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder.

Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.

The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.

Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there.

Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

My Computer will not communicate with my camera The camera is listed in the hard drive


You didn't say why you want the camera and computer to communicate, so I'm assuming it's so you can download photos from the camera to the computer. You also didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses a memory card of some type.
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I have a gateway ZX4931 computer with a built in webcam but I can not figure out how to use it.


is this a laptop or in a monitor connected to the tower of a desktop?
the webcams usually are located in the Control Panel of the Start button box. in control panel look for hardware devices, cameras, etc and click on that choice. it should list your webcam. it may be in the Programs list of the Start button(All Programs). It will be listed by the model number or manufacturer name. click on it to run the program if it is found. read the instructions or 'read me' file if listed under your webcam listing

How to work the webcam and find the webcam on this computer


Hardware identification is a crucial step when researching or troubleshooting your computer. Additionally, hardware identification is required when updating the drivers for your hardware. You might have an occasion where you need to learn more information about your webcam. While Microsoft provides the drivers for most types and brands of webcams, sometimes the driver provided is outdated. You can find information about your webcam and update its drivers through the Windows Device Manager.

Instructions
1 Load a "Run" dialog by simultaneously pressing the "Windows" and "R" buttons on your keyboard.
2 Type "Devmgmt.msc" (without quotes) in "Run," and click "OK." This opens "Windows Device Manager."
3 Click the arrow next to "Imaging devices" to expand a list of related hardware. Your webcam is listed by its name in this section. Continue reading to learn how to research further information about your webcam.
4 Right-click your webcam, and click "Properties." Look at the "Device Status" section. This area provides information regarding the status of your webcam. If the device has a problem, it will be noted here.
5 Click the "Driver" tab. This area contains the provider, date, and version number of the currently installed driver. If no driver is installed, it will be noted here. Click the "Update Driver" button, and follow the onscreen prompts to update your webcam's hardware-driver.
6 Access your webcam's main interface by typing "webcam" in the "Search" box on the "Start" menu and then pressing "Enter." Depending on the model, additional information and settings might be provided on this interface.

Bootup problems


AS you boot up, try tapping the F8 key until you get a window giving you the option of multiple types of boots. Use the safe mode boot.
Then do a system roll back found in your system tools.
