If ur webcam is not working what u can do is first of all u can uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the webcam and then try ur webcam and still if it doesnt work restart ur computer once and then connect the webcam and try it out and still if it doesnt work then replace the webcam and get a new webcam which is compatible with ur computer.

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.

I have a proline w763s and i cannot find the webcam in it as its not functioning?


Hi mgiben

Try using your webcam this way.
Use a IM application like Yahoo messenger,NetMeeting,MSN Messenger,etc.
They will have video capabilities that will work with your webcam.

Webcam not working with skype


SKYPE VIDEO PROBLEM
To test if the WEBcam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure itis connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture yourimage/video.If this works then thefault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop offand the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - VideoSettings and select the WEBcam Also check the AudioSettings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.Avoid connecting the WEBcamto an USB hub.

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

Hi! I can't find any way to get my Advent 4211-C (Windows XP OS) webcam working on Skype (the only webcam function I currently use). Cyberlink says there's "No available Captured Device". I don't...


Advent 4211 always require you to enable it everytime you turn the laptop on. it is Fn key + F10 I think. Look for the Function key at the top of your keyboard which has a picture of a webcam. Hold down the FN key at the bottom left, and then click on the correct 'F' key. You should see a little picture come up on the screen to say you have enabled your webcam. That should work.
