No webcam detected. If you are using an integrated camera, make sure that it is turned on


You are using a device which works only with Win-Seven OS or higher. I've got the same problem with my optical mouse (without cable) .... Try to re-install your camera's driver in your pc... if this doesn't works... try to install your camera in a PC or Laptop with Win-Seven OS

How to Install a Webcam


Purchase a camera. Webcams can range from a basic model for around $30 to ones that contain a motion sensor for around $350 or so. Most mid-priced models come with a microphone install. Decide on what this camera will be used for and choose accordingly.

Read the installation instructions completely before attempting to install the camera. Although this may seem tedious and unnecessary, it can save time and headaches in the long run.

  • 3 Back up the computer's hard drive just to be safe. This will allow for a speedy recovery should the installation mess up the computer.
  • 4 Install the webcam software. Before deciding to install the disc that came with the camera, check the Internet for an updated version of the software and download that if available.
  • 5 Plug in the webcam. The software should give a prompt at the appropriate time. they are usually installed with a USB cable. If installed correctly, the computer will acknowledge so by popping up a message saying it can see the new device.

    Download an instant message program if using the web camera for chatting. Some free IM download programs include Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and Apple iChat.

    g'day!

    if you are talking about a webcam. you need to have driver installed in your computer. usually the cam comes with a CD. which contains the driver for the camera. all you have to do is put it in the CD drive and just follow the instructions displayed and your cam will work perfectly.

    cheers mate!

    Ive conected my philips webcam SPC110NC to the usb port in my computer and ive tried to use it on windows msgr. no pic has showed. me and the person im connecting to have the same camera, neither one can...


    What a joke. You have to install or at least configure drivers (from Philips; read what came with the camera for a site to get drivers by) for the camera to work. Then, when you can select the camera as an input device and 'scan' images (e.g. in GIMP or IrfanView or some photo tool) from the Philips unit, you're ready to configure Windows Messenger to use it. After that...you should be seeing pictures fine.

    It's like you connected a piano to an orchestra, but no pianist (or more directly, a camera head to a vision controller, but no shutter sync control.)
