Tell me how to activate the camera ,because i can see people am talking to,but they cant see me,this is what they tell me.


Hi,

I am presenting below solution by keeping in mind that the webcam software is installed on your laptop.

Compaq laptops come with QuickPlay features that allow you to conveniently access your built-in webcam. Use the QuickPlay software to activate the webcam in your Compaq laptop and record videos and photos right onto your hard drive. The software is straightforward and simple to understand for both novice and experienced computer users.
Step 1 Click the "Start" icon and type "quickplay" into the search field. Click the "QuickPlay" entry that appears in the results. Alternately, press the "QuickPlay" button located near the laptop's display.
Step 2 Click the "Video" icon in the QuickPlay interface that opens, then double-click the "HP Webcam" option in the "Source" window. The image from your webcam appears on the screen.

Do post if you still find problems in accessing the webcam.

Thanks,
Amar

I have lost cd for web cam have new hard drive how do i install webcam


  • Make sure your computer is on and you have an active internet connection. Do not connect the webcam to your computer yet.

  • 2

    Look on your webcam for the name of the manufacturer and a model number. Write it down for future reference.

  • 3

    Go to the manufacturer's website, and choose the "Support" option. At this point, you will be asked to give the webcam name and style number.

  • 4

    Within the "Support" menu there is often a "Downloads" option. Select the "Downloads" option.

  • 5

    Download the driver for your webcam. This will put the driver on your computer, just like the installation CD would. Save the driver to your desktop where you will easily find it.

  • 6

    Open the webcam driver file, and follow any download or installation instructions.

  • 7

    Connect your webcam to your computer, and enjoy.

    the problem is not with the webcam.. its with the computer. if the configuration of the computer is very low (for e.g 128 mb ram, 40 gb hard disk) please upgrade them. if you have a higher configuration probably there might be a virus attack in your computer. clean it up with the help of an original antivirus software. hope your problem is tackled. thanks for using fixya!. please dont forget to rate my solution.

    I just bought a new web cam, i was having a hard time installing it. The pc can detect the web cam but it cannot install the drivers.

    MAKE SURE THAT THE DISC THAT CAME WITH THE WEBCAM HAS DRIVERS IN IT.

    1.Insert disc, right click your cdrom drive(example D:) then click explore. There must be a folder for drivers. Sometimes the setupexe file is not enough to make the webcam work
