Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Go your message setting. There is option where you'll save your message and choose save to memory card.
Delete all message in inbox and outbox folder, delete all cache in your browser and close all active applications. Try to send text message.
If the notification "Memory full" still appear you must uninstall a one or more application (not just close it but uninstall it) to make some space in your phone memory. Choose application that you don't use the most.
If the problem persist, format your phone back to factory setting.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.

This sounds like a virus to me? you say you are receiving that message, please, is it Windows "Telling" you?, or some program "Telling" you? please clarify? svchost, is not something that should be deleting anything...Both TCIP & netbt are VERY important part of Windows, so I do NOT think, it should be allowed.

I got an open box laptop Dell Inspiron and the webcamera was initially working right after I got it. But now whenever I go to click on the webcamera folder, it only will open the webcamera console and not...


Hello,
With certain webcams there are actually 2 parts of the application to look for, one of them is going to be the console which is what you have found the other one will have various names but is often called the "Centre" which is what will actually run the cam for you. If this was uninstalled before you purchased it, you should be able to re-download the entire application from Dell's website. I would recommend uninstalling the console before you download the new software package.
Best of luck to you!
