Hello,
Please try to swith usb cable to a different usb port and let windows rediscover the webcam (as silly as it sounds most likely it will work)
Thank you for using agadycom.

My bulit webcam is apperaing fuzzy and i have not a clue why. how do i fix it and what is the proper program to use it? the model of my computer is toshiba satelie L350D


Sounds like it is dirty and needs cleaning. It is new? Be sure to remove the plastic cover. If not, use a qtip with alcohol to clean it.
There is no proper program to use it. You can use it with MSN messenger, Yahoo messeger, etc. Just be sure to get the drivers installed.

My webcam does not work on msn


first you need to know that if you used xp ...and upgraded to vista ...you need to find a compatible driver for your web cam too ...if your web cam used to work just fine on vista ...and its just the msn issue ...just reinstall the latest MSN messenger and it should be enough ...also verify the proxy servers on the messenger preferences..and set 'em to fit the kinda conexion you use...
but I suspect a problem with the program settings ...so the easy way is just to install the latest messenger(MSN) available for vista ...and it will be ok

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

I have a Toshiba P200-RT2 laptop and I am trying to use my webcam on MSN and when I click to send my webcam invitation is says that my webcam is in use or not plugged in. I have tried signing on and off...


First go into control panel, click system and go to device manager. Make sure there are no conflicts when the web cam is plugged in. Is this webcam built into the laptop or via usb?
Thanks,
lee

Defragment your system. If that doesn't work

http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acerdrivers/bin/drivers.html?CFID=877183&CFTOKEN=73607451

Use that site to download your drivers
Use www.hwinfo.com, download software to find the maker of your webcam.
Download as many drivers that match. If a driver does not fit your system your computer will recognize it and reject it.
