It should work already. Download Skype, or install Gmail's video plugin, and try to video chat with someone.

No camera on computer

Desktops don't usually come with cameras built-int, although most laptops today come to webcams built-in. If you don't have a webcam at all you can buy an external one at your nearest electronics store.

How do I take a picture of my face with my new HP G62-225DX laptop computer? I think I see a built-in camera, but I can't see the special botton to click a picture.

check through My Computer to see if the webcam is listed as a device. If yes, just double-click it and it should have an option to capture an image. You may also try to right-click it to see if it has that option on the menu that will be shown. If none, you'll need a camera software for it. Check if your laptop came with one or at least a CD to install it. Or check the manufacturer's web site to find a downloadable webcam software. Else, you can always try to download other free webcam software on the internet that you can use. You may check out a free trial version at

Unable to install web cam on my laptop with already fiexed webcam

yes but you have to set primary camera control from control panel. if you are running windows OS then go to control panel and find "hardware and sound"

from there select:
device manager
expand applicable menu and disable the internal camera so that the primary camera used will run as the external installed camera. (this will need to be done after camera is installed)

Acer webcam not working

Is the webcam an Acer webcam also?
If not, determine the manufacturer and go the webcam manufacturer website for your drivers.

It should be a small download. Make sure you back up the driver set-up files once you are done.

Lost my webcam, now not laptop called Extersa 5420-5687

You ned to get a external webcam if you have lost it. If you are talking about any inbuilt cam and you have lost the driver, need to download from the manufacturers website.
