Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp

click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7

on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

Windows XP/Vista/7/8


It might take some time being a freeware driver solution

note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

this is a free driver solutions

this will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you

want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

I lose my operating system my laptop has no audio and my built in camera is not working too


After re-installing Windows, you need to download and install the laptop's device drivers (ie. audio, video, WEBcam etc.)
You can download the device drivers from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site.
I cannot give you the link to the laptop manufacturer's WEB site because you have not provided me with the make and model of your laptop.

Hello sir, Webcam in my laptop SAMSUNG NP-R430-JA06 is not working :( kindly help me to solve this issue.. when i tried to use webcam in yahoo,it says like no any webcam is detected :(...


You need to make sure that your web cam device is properly installed. I think you need to download the software driver for you laptop's camera and install it.

  1. Download the Camera software HERE. The web address is: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_ia_cd=05012600&prd_mdl_cd=NP-R430-JA01US&prd_mdl_name=NP-R430I
  2. Install in your laptop. Just follow the installation wizard.
  3. Restart your laptop.
  4. Configure your Yahoo Messenger or Skype to use your built-in camera for video streaming.
Just give it a try.
