Im trying to locate my camera does it need software or somethng when i type up web cam or camera when you press the start button it says device and printers plz help?


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!

I have a Dell 530 S Dell Inspiron. Its Webcam has stopped working. Any solutions


The very first step is of course to check your web cam connection. Most web cams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if your USB cable is properly plugged. For build-in web cams this steps does of course not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in web cam. Also try connecting your web cam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub (if you are using one).

The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.

It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem.
Other devices in Windows XP device manager

If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, Right-click the device, and in the pop up menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.

In case no driver for the web cam can be found, you can try a third party driver finding program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.

If this fails, the next step would be to un install the software that came with your web cam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party un installer.

After un installing the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the web cam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your web cam during the software installation.If your problem is not fixed then you have to buy a new one.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

When im webcaming the i could see the other person but the other person cant see me, their screen is black & so is mine


Can you make sure you are using the same version of the communication software? If you can use the web cam in other programs, that should be the issue. Otherwise you may need to update the driver of your web cam.

HP web cam software doesn't see built in camera


It might be a good idea to download the latest software for your Camera as it is never up to date when you purchase Webcams. Always get the latest software drivers/programs for new hardware.
Before you load up the new driver check for any special instructions that came with the cam as you may need to uninstall the old software first. Sounds like it's corrupted anyway. Good luck

Webcam driver stops working during regular PC operation.


If the Web cam was Generic, or even Brand name, and it came with a Drivers disc (this would mean that it is not plug and play), try completely uninstalling the Driver software for the web cam. After the uninstall has finished, reinstall the drivers, taking extra care to follow ALL on screen instructions to the T. If at some point there were other web cams, and the drivers that belonged to those cams installed on the computer, be sure to fully uninstall all of them. Only use the cam and the drivers that you are attempting to install. After all of that, the cam should work just fine.

If for some reason the cam does not work after reinstalling the drivers, try a different brand of web cam. The computer that the drivers are attempting to operate on may not be adequate to support those drivers. If that's the case, try a generic, cheaper web cam as I said.

Also: While powering up the cam, don't run anything unnecessary.

Hope this helps.
