I just bought a 9" digital2 deluxe and the screen is all messed up!


having a messed up screen, can be caused by many things. Is your screen scratched? Have you tried to fix your settings in the menu? Have you taken it back to the store where you purchased it at, and reported your problem to them?

MSI CR600 NO CAMERA FOUND ANYWHERE??!!!


You can buy and add a usb Webcam and attach it to the top of the screen of the laptop. A lot of people do this because the laptop camera has stopped working or is a poor quality camera. I would recommend buying a new webcam. You could try checking in the device manager under "Imaging Devices" Click on the arrow and open "Imaging Devices" To Access Device manager From Control Panel in Vista/W7
See this link: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windowsvista/ht/accessdmcpnva.htm If it shows no Webcam at all then the Webcam is bad. If there is a yellow symbol next to your webcam, then the driver is not working. Your laptop uses a Windows Operating System Driver for the Webcam. For that you would have to go to a computer Tech. Again, I would recommend buying a new webcam. You'll be a lot happier with the results and you'll spend a lot less money. Webcams can run from $10 to over $100. Your budget will determine that. You get what you pay for. If you want decent video then spend around $40 to $50.

Hey my webcam is not showing anywere in window but working properly with yahoo.........i hv lenovo g460 and using window 7 64 bit os



hi,

For you to be able to use the webcam, you need to install a particular software for that,if the webcam is working in yahoo, that means that the hardware itself is working properly, try to install the YouCam from lenovo itself, here is the link http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_show_2654.html

Hope this will help...

How do I set up the email on the acer webcam


your webcam works through Yahoo Messenger, go to messer, scroll down to webcam, click on webcam, that will turn on the camera, you have to invite all contacts or just one to view your webcam
it does not work through regular email

My web cam wont work w/vista


Yeah I had same problem with mine, when someone tries viewing it, all they got was a black screen too. Downloading an "Older Version Of Yahoo Messenger" wlll not solve the problem, as being "Older" it would be even more less likely that it would have supported you Webcam back then, let alone now.
Unfortunately, just one of those things. You can either Buy a New Cam that comes with Vista Support, Backup your whole system & format the hard drive & install Windows XP. Or you can just sit back and hope that Support will be added for your Webcam in the near future.
(Although 2 yrs later and I still can't see My OLD Webcam listed as compatible with Vista, so may have a long wait).
