Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? 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 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take hours Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once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). Hope this helps.

How to activate camera

Hi Swim4 Life-welcome to Fix Ya. There are 2 ways to activate your webcam.

First, if you want to use the webcam by itself without skype or another video chat program, you need to install the software which is found on the driver installation software CD that came with your notebook or it may be on your pc.

1. Locate the Driver Installation CD that came with your notebook pc. Insert it in the DVD drive.

2. Run the program called Setup.exe to install the webcam software. When that is done, reboot your pc.

To check if it is preloaded on your pc, go to Start>All Programs>MSI
1 Click on MSI folder and select MSI software>Install.

The installation of the software may take up to 10 min. When you are done reboot your pc.

Hope this is helpful. Thanks for using Fix Ya. Should you need additional assistance, leave a comment and I will be happy to further assist you.

Can not use my webcam

Go to CONTROL PANEL-SYSTEM, check if the Webcam device is detected, if detected and has Yellow Mark meaning it needs driver. Try download your driver, Google search for it or maybe you have your CD Driver you can use.

We are having problems with the webcam on our msi wind mini laptop. it seems to only connect to only a couple and not all

Have you tried pressing Fn and F6 at the same time? Pressing those two keys on the keyboard at the same time turns on the Webcam.

If you have done that, I would install the drivers for the webcam. Now I am assuming you are running Windows XP, and if so, visit this website:

Download the Webcam drivers about one-third of the way down the screen.

If after install and restart doesn't fix it, contact me and I can help further.

Also, definitely go here and follow screens for a full update from MSI. Do this either way:

It fixes quite a bit of issues.

Goog Luck!
