Question about Computers & Internet
I have just got a new laptop: Medion Akoya P6612 Notebook and I can't get the webcam to work, i've looked through the instructions booklet and it has virtually nothing of use about the webcam setup.
The webcam is built into the laptop and I have windows vista if that makes a difference.
Have any ideas how to get it up and running?
1. Press start button.
2. In the "serch programs and files" tab typen in youcam. This will open up the webcam.
3. Once it is opened it will create a temporary icon on the task bar at the bottom of you desktop.
4. Click on this icon and you will have an option to pin it to the program to the taskbar, select this option and you will be able to easily start the launch of the program at any time.
Note: I really do not understand when Medion have not put direction for the webcam in the instruction manual!!!!!
Hope this helps,
Kathryn from London

Everytime you boot up, you have to press/hold the Fn key on the bottom left of the keyboard & then the F8 key to enable the camera each time you turn it on.

Are the drivers installed? check out the laptops website and put in your model number. then, try yahoo or some other webcam-enabled messenger. you can find webcam programs online for free but ive never used anything else.
