Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

NOT KNOW HOW TO TURN ON THE WEB CAM TO RECORD VIDEO AND TAKING PICTURES

A webcam supplements communication with family and friends. It's often used for video chatting. But you could use your webcam to take pictures, as well.

Make sure your webcam is connected to the USB port of your computer, installed appropriately, and the computer is on and ready. Navigate to the "Start" menu and type "webcam" (without quotes) in the Search field. If you've previously installed webcam software, the program should appear in the search results. Double-click the selection to launch the webcam application. From the webcam dialog, select the "Quick Capture" icon (the example is for Logitech software, but other applications have similar functions with different Position the camera and person or object that you want to photo capture. Select the desired resolution from the drop-down menu. Click "Take Photo" to take a photograph. Browse to the picture destination to view your photo. Now that your photo is stored on your computer, you can email or print it. Hope this helps.

How do i capture a pic and send it in my webbcam


Usually you should have a button on top of webcam. Pressing it, will make pictures. Save the pictures in folder and you can send via email

If you don't have the button, you must open the application provided with the webcam. (e. g. Start - programs - your webcam name). In that application you must have option Capture. Clicking on it, it will make pictures.

You can use the mail (Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail) attaching the picture

Inbuilt WebCam problem


You won't believe this! After trying all drivers on MSI Site, reinstall the proper driver and restart laptop.

Press the P1 button on the top right hand corner (near the power, wifi, internet, etc button) and Windows does the found new hardware sound.

Open the application and your done!

Another problem less :)
