Normal 0 First, download SKYPE from this site ( ) and install it. Then let all your family and friends know you’re on Skype and give them your ID. After they get on Skype and you know their ID's add them to you Contacts in Skype. After you connect up with them you can turn on the camera on so they can see you. Skype is a free download and free to converse by computer without paying and several people at a time.. It only costs if you call a telephone number from your computer while on Skype. Once you get the hang of it , you will enjoy it.

Hope this helps, Bud.

My webcam on my gateway MC7321 when i open keeps saying webcam driver fail to open. how do i fix this?

First, go into the device manager and delete the camera from the device list. Restart the laptop and when it asks to install the camera select manual install and install new drivers from the Gateway web site. Sometimes Microsoft has a corrupted driver and replacing it with a factory driver will override the Microsoft one.

Is there in built web in my laptop M465E gateway. if not then tell me how to attach my logitech web cam with it.

There is a WLAN, a wireless internet connection card for this computer and connecting your webcam should be as easy as plugging it into your USB port and using the disk it came with to activate it. If the picture is correct on this question, you need an adapter from you local computer store. The adapter will likely be about 5 to 20 dollars, and this will allow you to plug it into a USB port after you attach the adapter.

If it's built in, you may need to install, or re-install drivers for the webcam.

My webcam wont work and i dont know the model it has six lights on it and a built in mic

Hi Tommy,

Go to your manufacturer's main website, and look for the technical/downloads section. Pick out your series computer and model number, then drill down to the installed equipment portion. When you get to the download section, you should see a list of typical components installed on your machine. From that point you may see one or two drivers for your particular Webcam. Download, and try. You should hit the correct model in a jiffy, and get it going...unless there is a physical defect with the camera. Let's hope the correct driver will fix your problem.

Also, Dell has a great area to actually enter your "Service Code" (on the bottom of their laptops) and see all the original components installed on your laptop. Gateway and HP will offer excellent help in these areas also.

Let me know if this helps you solve this problem. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

Built in webcam cannot detected by its software

Make sure the program that your using doesn't have the camera offline.

Then if the driver installed properly and you see the camera listed in the device manager then the next step would be to open up the LCD. You'll need to turn off the laptop.

Take the rubbers off of the lcd bezel then unscrew the screws out of there. Take off the lcd front bezel and this will expose the screen and also expose the built in webcam. Make sure the connector for the webcam is actually plugged in. You might have to reseat the connector or best thing is disconnect it and then reconnect it back.

Now go ahead and turn it on and use the webcam program and see if it works, if it still doesn't work then the built in webcam is bad.
