Well the best way is through software like Yahoo Messenger, AIM, Skype, etc. These are normally called instant messengers and you can download them for free.

How to operate webcam on my hp6530b laptop


Some integrated hardwares need to activate in BIOS. Check the BIOS whether your webcam has been deactivated. I ignore some other reasons because you may have already inspected it.

I bought a Compac Presario CQ71 with buield in webcam,how do I turn webcam on please


When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default application will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel.

One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo Messenger, Skype or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat

My webcam supported softwares cant detect my inbuilt webcam.it is showing to turn on the webcam but it is already inbuilt in my laptop.


You need to use your chipset CD given by your laptop provider and install the driver for your web cam. If you don't have tat CD see the configuration details of your web cam and search in google for the driver software.

Webcam software for sony vaio laptop ,inbuilt webcam software of the sony vaio laptop VGN Fj 68 GP /w not working I cannot use my webcam because I don´t find an icon to click on. I think I must activate...


Check out the manual on your computer regarding the webcam controls
Sometimes the webcam start procedure can be found under the keyboard heading

Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Documentation >> EN(glish)

Try the Sony Support website for drivers
