    I have a Vaio FE41M laptop on which Skype worked ok for a while. But now, while I get sound two ways, I only get picture only from the caller. They cannot see me, despite my clicking the "video on" button. Skype video test actually confirms that everything is ok--it;s not!

Can you access the webcam using the utility (hp webcam not SKype)? Sometimes Skype loses sync with devices. double-check your Skype version too.

How do i use my built in webcam


Step 1:
An example of a device that has come a long way is the webcam. Originally, these devices were highly priced, slow and complicated to operate, but today webcams are easy to use, efficient and inexpensive. In some models, laptops even have a webcam built in. If you want to use a webcam to chat with family or friends, you don't have to be technically savvy. By following several simple steps, you'll be on your way to having fun with your webcam.

Plug your webcam's USB cable into a USB port and turn on your computer. Once the computer's operating system finds the camera, it will ask you if you want to install the driver. Click on "Yes" or "Install" and insert the installation disc that came with your camera when prompted. Wait for your webcam's software to finish installing. Access your webcam's settings once it's installed. Click on its icon on your desktop or access it through where it was installed in your computer. Adjust your webcam's settings by customizing the camera's resolution, speaker and microphone to your liking. This process will vary depending on your webcam, but usually you can access these settings through the "settings" menu. Other functions include being able to take still photos, recording "motion pictures" as well as doing audio captures. These settings will be displayed by obvious icons on the webcam's software menu. Features will vary depending on the type of webcam. Test the built-in microphone or use an external headphone set so you can also talk to other people via webcam. To test the microphone, simply run a "sound test." This can be accessed under the "settings" menu in the "sounds" section. Open a free account with Yahoo! Messenger, Skype, Windows Live or ICQ by going to their websites and installing the software. For instance, if you want to install Yahoo! Messenger, simply go to Yahoo.com and click on the "Messenger" link on the left side of the screen next to the "smiley face" icon, and install the software by clicking on the "Download Now" tab and following the instructions. Invite other friends to your chat. Voice over IP software services such as Yahoo! Messenger, Skype and Windows Live have integrated features that allow you to converse with other people while seeing each other through the webcam. Invite friends by opening the chat software you are using and clicking on the "add new contact" or "add" option and typing the person's email or User ID in the blank box. Wait for the other person to accept your invitation. Once you see the person listed under your contacts, right-click and select the "video call" or "video chat" option. This will vary depending on the software you are using, but the process is similar regardless of the software you decide to use.
Use a Built-In Webcam b> Open Yahoo Messenger and select "My Webcam" from the "Messenger" menu. This will bring up a window showing what your webcam sees. To invite one of your contacts to view your webcam, right-click on them in your contacts list and choose "Invite to View My Webcam" from the "More Actions" area of the pop-up menu. Your contact will receive an invitation to view your webcam. Open Skype and select a contact you'd like to call. Skype will automatically detect that you have a webcam attached to your computer and give you the option to place either a voice-only or a video call to the contact. Choose "Video call" and your contact will be able to see and hear you. Open Picasa and select the webcam icon to the right of the "Import" button. A window displaying a view from your webcam will pop up. Click the "Record" button to begin recording a video or the camera icon to take a snapshot.

Sounds like a possible driver issue.
Go to Sony's support site and download the latest drivers for your Camera, namely the WebCam Companion software to ensure you have the proper drivers for your integrated webcam.

A restart is usually needed after the installation.
Test the software to ensure you actually get proper video from the webcam after driver installation.
Test it out on Skype if all goes well.

I have an hp pavilion dv6...i know how to open my webcam and it usually works just fine when i take pix or when i use it to video chat on skype. today it stopped working. when i open my webcam it says that...


Windows Vista and 7 ( can't remember about XP ) come with native drivers for the webcam so it may be a problem with these. You could try running a system file check by browsing to all programs, accessories, right click on the Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'. Type in the following command and hit return. sfc / scannow
If that doesnt work download and install the software driver for your webcam on the link below. http://www.downloadsource.net/d16952/HP-Pavilion-Webcam-Driver-Windows-Vista-x32-x64/ i hope this works for you.

I have a acer built in Web cam, but I dont know how to use it


There are various programs that come with the laptop that can be used to control the webcam. In my case there is a program called Acer Crystal Cam Webcam. If you can't find anything on your laptop, you can download the application from the Acer.com site. Also you can download Skype. Skype will find the webcam and integrate it into its functionality.

Integrated web cam is not displaying


Try to reinstall the webcam drivers from www.hp.com (drivers). This possibly should fix the problem. Also, try updating the bios (from the same link).
