Normal 0 First, download SKYPE from this site ( http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/windows/beta/ ) 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.

Cant re install built in webcam after installing new hard drive


When you went to the Gateway website and downloaded drivers, did you notice that under drivers there was nothing for the webcam? Use this link and download the webcam application under Applications tab. The driver is included in the application.

My Gateway Windows 7 NV5929u laptop's built-in Video Web Camera doesn't work. All it does now is pop up the following message whenever I try to open it: Cannot open file C:\Program Files...


The file it's saying it cant find is a simple image file, most likely a picture used for a background or some other part of the webcam softwares interface. The first step would be to go to the location it's mentioning and make sure the file is in fact missing. If it is, you can check the recycle bin to see if it has been accidentally deleted. If its not there, then the next option would be to re-install the webcam software.
The webcam software for the gateway NV59 series can be downloaded here : http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2379
hope that helps.

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.

You must have got a photo/video capture software pre-installed, like YouCam. Or you can download some freeware from Download.com and give it a try.

You can also use a chat software for video talking. It works best if you have a microphone.

Also, YouTube has a Quick Capture feature which lets you to capture a video with the webcam instantly and upload to the site.

These were some ways to put your new webcam to work. Please rate this answer, I need it. For more tips, tricks, hacks, tutorials, tweaks and fixes, visit my YouTube Channel.

You can even learn to fix the 'No Sound in PC' problem which I have seen numerous people having.
