Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My webcam on my Notebook PC (HP Pavilion tx 1308) does not work with my quickplay, does not work when I'm chatting on line with skype or yahoo messenger. Works well when just tested with Windows Live Messenger. It has been replaced on the device manager menu by USB 2.0 Camera. I am not able to re-instate the inbuilt webcam on the device manager.

I need yahoo messenger vioce and video call setup on my dell 3521


If you own a web camera or if your Dell computer comes with a built-in web camera, you can complete a video conference on your computer.
There are a variety of free chat programs that provide free video messaging such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger or Google Chat.
With these programs, all you will need to do a video conference is add the person you wish to conference with to your buddy list.

Download and install a messaging software program such as Skype, Yahoo or Google Chat if you do not already have one installed on your Dell computer.
No matter which messaging program you use, the video call or conferencing feature works the same.
Launch the messaging software on your Dell computer.
Click on your buddy list or contact list.


Click on the contact with whom you'd like to video conference.
If he isn't one of your contacts, you will need to add him to your messenger contact list by clicking on "New" and then "New Contact."

Click on the contact name and select "Video Call."
You will now have a video conference call on your Dell computer.

I don't know how to access my webcam


Hello:
For the majority of webcam uses, you would use a separate program that accesses the webcam. Examples include: If you only want to record videos and take pictures, you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. You can download it at http://explore.live.com/windows-live-movie-maker?os=other

I have a HP MediaSmart Webcam and want to chat with someone online...how do I do that?


If you want to "video chat" then you will need an application such as ooVoo or Skype. There are also additional chat apps that can be searched for on the net.

How to work webcam on acer e machine E627? i can see myself but how do i talk to people?


Dear, you can talk to people via internet by using any of software e.g Yahoo messenger, Skype, Gtalk. etc. If you are chatting with friends using any of these software , there will be a option of "call person on Webcam". Clicking on that you will be able to see each other but make sure your friend has webcam too on this PC/Laptop.

cheers

How do i turn on my webcam


Yes, you can use the WebCam through QuickPlay, and yes, it works under Vista.

To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut.

Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)

To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera)
Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam

Hello sandeep

Since the problem here is compatiability issue. Suggestion: why dont you try other video chat programs. Skype is also good for video chatting and free to use. If all doesnt work you should consider asking for a replacement.

Best of luck
