I have a compaq presario cq56 115dx and i dont know how to use the camera like on skype i want to make a video call and i cant


This model Compaq laptop does not have a built-in WEB cam.
You can check the specs from this WEB site.
http://www.cnet.com/laptops/compaq-presario-cq56-115dx/4507-3121_7-34498057.html

To use video call with Skype you need to purchase an USB WEBcam, connect the WEBcam into the Compaq laptop's USB port and install the WEBcam driver that came with the WEBcam.
Then configure Skype - select the WEBcam and mic.

My chrystaleye webcam wont work with skype


SKYPE VIDEO PROBLEM
To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video. If this works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save. Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub. SKYPE MICROPHONE PROBLEM
If the person cannot hear you then, either your microphone driver not installed or not working OR the microphone is not configured in Skype.
To test your microphone then click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back. If this is OK then the microphone need to be configured in Skype.
To configure the microphone - Open Skype - Tools - Options - Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.

I have a webcam already install in my laptop but i dont know how to get it started?


click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam


click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or
update driver

you may need to install either skype ,yahoo messenger or a similiar type of message program
if you choose skype
when you install skype you will have the options to join make/id or if already a member to sign in
an Id must consist of letters and numbers just one number will do the Id must be unique skype will automatically search to see if your Id you have made is available eg: loosey9


then
open skype go to tools from the drop down list select options scroll to audio settings also video settings you can see the webcam there you can even take a snapsot also make sure your settings are correct for a video call
in the audio settings make sure the microphone is using the same as your computers audio
you can make a free test call if you cant get the microphone to work you can select learn about setting up your audio equipment also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices audio and also voice it's the same make sure that you have the right default microphone selected you should be able scroll to video settings to make the right changes?
you should be ready to go
i would suggest you make a log of your skype id and password either on a note pad or a removable usb drive incase of any memory lapses

hope this helps

How can i install video on skpe


With skype you need to have a webcam installed on your computer. If it is a laptop with a webcam, then you just have to have the drivers installed, and in Skype go to Tools-Options-Video Settings, and choose your webcam there. Save your settings and make a call to someone in your Skype contact list and you will be able to video message. If you have a dekstop then you will need to go buy a webcam, install the drivers from the disc they include, plug in webcam, then in Skype go to Tools-Options-Video Settings, and choose your webcam there. Save your settings and make a call to someone in your Skype contact list and you will be able to video message. You will also have to change your audio settings in Skype to use the microphone on the webcam as your microphone source.

I cannot get my webcam to open on my new gateway NV52 laptop. When I went into program search I found a folder that said WEBCAM. It ask me to install, I installed. Then retarted the computer. I did after...


I had the same problem, so I deleted a bunch of applications like Messenger and Skype that also use the webcam but that didn't work. Finally, I deleted something called Windows 7 codecs and my webcam started working again. If you happen to have that program on your computer--delete it; otherwise, keep looking for the culprit. It took me about three days of messing around to nail it.

Skype video using Acer Aspire Mini Laptop camera?


If you have a WEB camera you need to configure your video Webcam settings. Open Skype click on Tools - Options - Video Settings - select your Webcam model. When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.
If you still have problems with your mic. then - To test if the microphone is working, go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and record you voice. Can you see your voice recording, the green line should vary as you speek.
If you see a flat green line, then the microphone is either faulty or the wrong microphone is selected.

How to use my webcam on my gateway laptop


Hi,
The webcam just needs a program to be used with, such as Messenger or Skype. If you want to record movies with it, you can download and use Videocaster, and choose Capture Video from the main menu.
In Messenger, you login and go to Tools > Audio and Video Setup, and click Next past the audio settings, and, in the video settings, choose USB Video Device from the list, and press Apply.
In Skype, you login and choose the same device, but you go to Tools > Options > Video Settings.

Hope this helps
