Do you have some software installed like Youcam. Either way something else to try is right click on My computer, select properties and then click device settings and look and see if your cam is there. It should be under imaging devices. If not then go to Acers website and download the driver.

Can't activate webcam in livejasmin


Hello,

Built in web cam? Does the web cam work with the software e.g. - Microsoft life cam? If does not work at all could be out, get an external USB web cam. Could be a driver, could be the site or site settings.

I hope this helps.

I have a dell laptop with a built in web cam. how


Hi,
Please make sure that your dell's webcam is turned on.
yahoo messenger webcam 1. Turn on Yahoo Messenger and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already. 2. Click the Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting. 3. While you are talking to a friend click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window. 4. Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active. 5. Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams. Others: *1. Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires. *2. Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed.

Do you use yahoo messenger to chat? If your are using yahoo messenger, while chatting, look be-nit the chat box, you would see a web cam symbol, click it and you will see a warning box pop out. Click OK and your web cam will automatically be activated.

You would have to wait a little while for the web cam to show, because it has to load. Loading time depends solely on your computer and internet connection speed.

Best wishes.

Turn on web cam


A lot of times on laptops, there's a button or hotkey on the keyboard somewhere to activate it. Try looking in your user manual. If you don't have the user manual, you can probably find it on http://www.google.com and search for your computers model / name with the word "manual" after it.

I hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

James

Web cam not working


Since you have a NEW computer, I will assume you have Vista on it. Yahoo messenger does not support the use of a web cam with Vista.
