Hi,
Your webcam needs a program to use. You could try Videocaster and click Capture Video from the menu. You can add music, narration, effects, edit it, save it as a movie, or even stream it to the web..
You can also use it in Skype and Messenger, but you have to go to the video settings and choose it as the default webcam.

Hope this helps

If I could get on with you and access you computer, I could show you how to use it with Windows Live Messenger or Skype. Basically its not complicated but knowing what to look for makes it simple. Bud

How to switch on web cam in my hp compaq laptop


If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, you may have a program named YouCam.
Open that program and you should be able to turn on the camera.
IF not, download the Youcam from the hp website and install it.
Or you can just go to start >> computer
Inside the Computer Window, you will get a list of device, you should see your webcam there. Just double click on it to open.

Webcam driver probably did not install properly.

Go to Device Manager. Unistall the Webcam. Reboot.

Vista will scan for new hardware, locate the Webcam and reinstall the driver.

Good luck.

My web cam won't turn on


Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. I'll assume that you are using YAHOO MESSENGER and walk you through the setup. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "CALLIN & DEVICES."
When that comes up check and check to see that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to you audio card.

Then go to "Test Audio"
In Blue "Open the call setup Assistant"
When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.
Hope this helps. Bud

My quick cam do not work with Windows Vista Primium


Lots of web cameras dont work with vista. The best option is to go to the webcam manufacture's website and see if there is a Vista driver available.
