Dear Digjay,

Please Rate this solution.

for using webcam in yahoo messenger,all you have to do is go to the yahoo messenger settings and set the camera. On the bottom of my messenger there is a camera button that turns the cam on.

for installing skype


Downloading and Installing Skype Step1 Go to the Skype Web site (see the Resources section below for links to download Skype for Windows, Mac, and Linux users) and download the SkypeSetup.exe executable. (The executable gets downloaded under the Program Files folder under a directory called Skype that gets automatically created. A Skype Setup icon is also automatically seen on your desktop.) Step2 Click on the SkypeSetup icon that is on your desktop. A Skype Setup wizard then appears. You will get a warning window asking if you want to Run or Save this file, SkypeSetup.exe. Click Run. Note: Another confirmaton message may come up asking if you are sure you want to Run this software. Click "Run" again. Step3 Follow the instructions on the Skype Setup Wizard to complete the installation of the Skype software. At the end of the installation you will be asked to setup a Skype account. Step4 A Skype window appears and if you have never used Skype before you have the option of creating a Skype account. A link is seen on that window mentioning the following: "Don't have a Skype name?" Click on this link and it opens up another "Skype - Create a New Account" window where you have to type in your Full Name and then you have to type in a "Skype Name" and a Skype "Password" and "Repeat Password" in the respective fields on that window. Note: Jot down this Skype Name and Skype Password as you will need it everytime you open the Skype application. Step5 Click on the "Sign in" button. Note: After having created this new Skype Name account for the first time, the next time you open Skype again, your Skype name will automatically appear in the Skype name field. All you need to do is to type in your Skype password and click the "Sign in" button. Step6 Follow the instructions in the "Getting Started" guide to "Add a Contact" using the "Add Contact" button, to test your headset and microphone using the "Skype Test Call Feature," to set up a Conference Call with a business colleague or friend, and to explore all the other features in Skype. Step7 Once you have installed the Skype software, there are 2 ways by which you can open the Skype software application. Click on the Skype icon on your desktop Or Double click on the "x" icon in your desktop's system tray to start Skype at any time. Note: Once the Skype window comes up, the "x" checkmark then changes to a green checkmark to indicate that the Skype application is currently running on your computer. It changes back to an "x" mark when you have "Signed out" of Skype and Skype is no longer running on your computer.

Hello gkml15
the following is a link for a yahoo webcam compatibility test. http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?y=PROD_MSNG&page=content&id=SLN1275&actp=lorax&locale=en_CA
If your webcam is compatible, please update your web cams software to the newest version.
Also it may just be that you need to have directx installed on to your computer http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8109 Please make sure that your computer matches the requirements before installing.

I have an acer aspire 5735z laptop webcam


Dear Sir,

Acer Aspire Model generally comes with a bison web cam driver.
To use the web cam search for an application that installed in program files.In windows Xp web cam can be used by double clicking camera icon present in my computer. If you are using windows vista or other operating system you need an camera application software,to use it. Without application software you can use your web camera only in messengers,for example yahoo messenger. If u had an yahoo messenger login and click on view my web cam,now you can see your face in your laptop.So first thing is search for an application software installed on your laptop.


good luck

You should test the compatibility of your web cam with Yahoo! Messenger. I recommend you to install drivers for your web cam. These are usually found at the web cam manufacturer;s web site. Hoping your webcam's compatible with Yahoo! Messenger!

Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!
