  1. Press the QuickPlayhow to get my webcam works - c00865937.jpg button (normally located near the display) on the notebook PC to open the QuickPlay application. NOTE: If this takes you to DVDPlay instead of QuickPlay, then you are probably not using an HP Pavilion notebook and you do not have QuickPlay installed. You should skip this test and go to Test the webcam using YouCam instead. Alternately, click Startc00814574.gif , type QuickPlay in the search field, and select QuickPlay when it becomes available to open the QuickPlay application.

  3. Click Record in the QuickPlay window to record a short webcam file, and then press Stop .
    • By default, the file is saved in a public folder, and the date is used as the name of the video file. For example: C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam\webcam_20070228_1540.mpg .
    • The saved file can be renamed and moved for use by QuickPlay or other media programs.
  4. Double-click the name of the file in the playlist in the QuickPlay window to view the short Webcam file.
  5. If you can view this file, this concludes this test. You should now test with YouCam.
If you have a third-part webcam, see HP Notebook PCs - Testing a Webcam in Vista with QuickPlay for additional information. Test the webcam using YouCam To verify that the webcam on an HP or Compaq computer that shipped with Microsoft Vista with Service Pack 1 installed is operating properly, perform the following YouCam test.

  2. Click c01475672.jpg in the main control bar to record a short webcam file, and then press Stop .
    • By default, the file is saved in the Documents folder, in a subfolder named YouCam, with a generic name based on the date. For example: Capture_200803how to get my webcam works - c00814574.gif
    • To navigate to this folder, click Startc00814574.gif , Computer , and then select Documents under Favorites, and then open the YouCam folder.
    • The saved file can be renamed and moved for use by YouCam or other media programs.
  3. Double-click the name of the file in the playlist in the YouCam window to view the short webcam file.
  4. This test verifies that the webcam is working and can record or play video files.

I can not get the web cam to work


Instructions1 Take pictures independent of communications software on the Windows version of the netbook by using the webcam without connecting to networking software. Click the "Windows Start" menu and click "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" in the Programs list. The webcam application should open and the camera should produce an initial warmup image. Use the buttons on the control panel to adjust image size or take photos.
2 Use the Instant Messenger program on the Acer Linux-based laptop or netbook to work the webcam. The Acer Instant Messenger program is available in the Connect folder on the Acer laptop's desktop screen.
3 To send and receive live video and pictures using your webcam on an Acer laptop, work the webcam through individual communications software, including Skype, Windows Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, or Google Video Chat. Open your selected communications software program and click the webcam button to work your webcam.
Thanks

A separate webcam should work nicely. If you're concerned about the existing webcam driver, try to delete the driver for it if possible.

Good luck on getting a webcam to work on your laptop.

My webcam is not working and i can't find the software to install so it can work.


Maybe this can help. Install the driver, you can find driver for your webcam via the internet through your laptop brand name. Most of the time they will have drivers and update for your laptop. Even if your model is not listed, most brand laptop use the same webcam hardware. If your laptop came with a back/restore disk, most likely that will have the driver and all you need is explore the disk and install the driver. If after all that, and it is not working and using device manager to detect your webcam and if the driver and hardware is working properly, then you might have a bad webcam.

I have lenovo Y 410 laptop with windows XP but webcam not work


Hi,

It seems that your laptop is holding webcam loading problems. Check whether the webcam driver is compatible for the OS which you use.
You can also try re-installing the webcam driver once again. This should do.

I hope this helps., if so, rate me..

Thanks - billa
