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

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

http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
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note: it will find all of your outdated drivers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).

Msi all in one pc webcam not work


What webcam software came with the computer? Cyberlink? If so, open Cyberlink. If not download freeware YAWCAM at: http://www.yawcam.com/download.php Use this software to test the webcam. Also open the Device Manager, open Imaging Device, verify the webcam is there and enabled, if you need a driver, try here: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Wind-Top-AP1900.html#/div=BIOS You didn't specify if you are trying to use the webcam in another program, if so, open the settings in that program and verify that your webcam is selected and setup correctly.
