You are simply missing a driver, you should download it from the manufacturer website if you don't have the software for it!

for Example if the webcam is from Dell/Toshiba/Acer then visit Dell/Toshiba/Acer website...

First uninstall the older device drivers and then install the latest device drivers. You can also download the latest webcam drivers from the internet and install the new device drivers.

Now go to manufacture site & in the download option, select your model number.

After selecting the laptop model number from site, click on 'Software & Drivers Downloads'.

Now you need to choose your operating system & select the given updates & follow all instructions to download it.

After complete download, install supported driver for your laptop webcam. After install driver, reboot your laptop again and check that your webcam is working properly or not.

I hope it will fix your webcam not working issue if laptop is not facing any hardware issue.

Webcan not functioning


Hi,

It would be better if you isolate the problem if its software or hardware. Check first the driver for the webcam If its installed properly, also check the webcam switch If its turned on. Try using the software for the webcam and check If its going to work and If its going to give any message why the webcam is not working or functioning.

My laptop has a web cam but after formatting i discovered that my webcam is no longer functioning what will i do please. the laptop is hp probook 4510s thanks


Hello

You need to update the driver for your laptop so that your webcam can function.

Goto system properties and click on imaging device.If the device is installed properly then you need to just install the webcam software.If you see a yellow question mark on your device then you need to install software driver for it to work.

Go to your control panel and click on Imaging device,right click on your webcam and click update driver software

This will update your driver and your webcam should work well again

How to Make my Samsung L100 camera a webcam


Many people ask if they can use their digital camera as a webcam. In the early days of digital imaging, it made sense to dual-function a camera because a webcam was a serious investment. However, webcams are now so inexpensive that manufacturers are not considering this functionality important in their digital cameras. In fact even the word 'webcam' creates the impression of bad imaging, so associating this function with a camera actually makes the camera seem 'cheap'.

Your camera is actually quite a new, and a nice camera. It doesn't make a lot of sense for Samsung to make it work as a webcam, because it's a waste. And in any case, you'd expect a webcam to be powered by a wall outlet or the USB... but most modern cameras like yours don't come with adapter-power, they have battery chargers instead. And they take too much current to use the USB power. By the time they'd added the extras to make it work properly as a webcam, you could BUY a USB webcam separately.

Anyway, back to your question... so, can your camera be used as a webcam? Probably not, but here's how you can tell. Make sure you've installed all the software you can find for your camera, power it up, and plug it in. Windows will tell you if it has a webcam function. If it's a webcam, then it will appear in "My Computer" as a device, right along with all the disk drives. To be sure, go to your control panel and select "Scanners and Cameras". Is your camera listed? If not... it's not a webcam.

In the unlikely event that you have a 'video in' on your computer, and that your camera has a 'video out' then you can follow the instructions on the sony site ("how to use a digital still camera as a webcam"); but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection.

Sorry this wasn't the news you really wanted.

CREATIVE LAB WEBCAM VF-0040 SOFTWARE


The installation disk contains both the software and the driver. The software section is the fancy bits that you see working as the "Program" the functional bit is the "Driver" which operates the camera and is essential to have the "Program" function work as it should. Without the driver the program will not work. As it is from CREATIVE LABS go to their website and under support downloads get the software and driver for your model and reinstall

Web cam set-up


Once your webcam software is loaded and working, in most cases the software loaded will provide some kind of display function allowing you to know that the software is working, then load up YM and under the Messenger tab, you will find ' MY WEBCAM '. Select ' My webcam ' and you should start seeing your display while using YM, that is the same display that others will see to whom you give allowance to see your webcam. I.E. you have to personally give each person permission to see your webcam. Until you know more about YM from personally using it and experiencing it, that is all I should say, but I will add one more tidbit. YM 9.0 beta is what I use and I'm quite happy with it as I have better control of the stealth function with it did I had with YM 8.0. Consider that when installing YM
