Hello Lurch1955,
Probably not but if your computer doesn't recognize that new hardware when you plug it in.. ( via USB port or other) then you may need to go to the webcam manufacturers website ( unless you have the installation CD That came with it) to download the drivers /application for that particular brand.. Most manufacturers offer a support or driver download tab on their website for issues like this.. Good Luck
Regards,
Rick

I'm looking for creative web cam driver VF0250


visit creative labs web site and select downloads to download the driver for your web cam . You will be prompted to enter specific information regarding your web cam. Usually the model number and what type of operating system you're using on your computer . Follow the instructions carefully . Usually I find it better to use the save option instead of the run option when the download is finished . Just remember where you save it to . Then , close the browser and all applications before you open the installation program you downloaded . When you open it , all the directions will be displayed . Follow them carefully to install the drivers and software for your web cam .

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.

My web cam does not work when I go to youcam it doesnt recognize or the camera doesnt work. But online the notice I have a camer but it doesnt work


Hi,
Did you have software installed to use the WebCam? You need software to run the WebCam. Install the web cam software in your PC. Look in your program folder to locate webcam software. Then you access the web cam through this software. Your problem must be solved.

Thanks

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

I need to know how to use my web cam


with it connected assuming you are using a messenger program you will have to go into the preferences and then the webcam/audio setup options and go through setting up and select your webcam so the program will know what it's suppose to use.
