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 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html 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 tick in either windows software or the all software box. If you don't have or cant find the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html It might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: This will find all of your outdated drivers This program will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be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). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer b> b> Go to Facebook and log into your account. Click the "Profile" tab. Click the "Video" link in the "Status" menu. Select the "Record a Video" option. For privacy reasons, Facebook requests permission to access your webcam and microphone. Check the box next to "Allow" and click "Close." You will appear in real time on the Facebook webcam window. Position yourself in front of the webcam and click the red "Record" button to begin recording your new video. When you're finished, press the "Stop" button. Click the "Play" button to view your video. If you want to post it on your profile, add a brief message and click "Share." If you're not satisfied with the outcome, press "Reset" and record a new video. b> Video Message Log into your Facebook account Navigate through your friends list and select the friend you want to send a video message to on Facebook. Click the "Send Message" link in the upper-right corner of your friend's page. Click the "Video" icon in the attachments section at the bottom of the "New Message" window. Check the box next to "Allow" to give Facebook permission to access your webcam and microphone, and then click "Close." Press "Record" and record your new video message. Click "Stop" when you're finished recording. When you're finished recording, you can press "Play" to preview your video. Hope this helps.

HAVING PROBLEMS LOADING


Hi john,It may be possible that your internet speed is very low. It may be the reason why Facebook is not loading for you. Check for connectivity issues. If you are using wireless internet check whether you have sufficient signal. Google is an extremely low size website where as Facebook with all the images and videos is extremely heavy. Since Google.com homepage does not undergo changes often your browser loads the site from the cache (ie. It loads a copy of the Google website that is stored in your computer). But in the case of Facebook it is not possible. So your browser requests for the page form the Facebook server every time. This alomg with low interent speed might be your problem.

I dont know how to turn my web cam on. please can u help me


The HP Pavilion DV6000 is a laptop from HP's entertainment series; this series is optimized for media and gaming. Unlike some of the newer models, it doesn't feature a built-in webcam. Webcams are an asset to online communication, allowing you to stream a live recording of yourself. Installing an external webcam to use with this laptop model is quick and easy.

1.Plug the webcam into a free USB port on your laptop.

2.Wait for any missing drivers to load; a notification will appear in your system tray when the process is finished. If drivers do not load automatically, see Resources for a download link.

3.Wait for the webcam software to install itself. Alternatively, if your webcam came with a CD, insert it and install the software from there.

4.Open the webcam software to turn on your webcam. Once the software loads, you will be able to see your webcam image.

Hi my facebook page is not loading for me to log in, yet all other websites are loading


Hi! My name is Mace and I'm here to help you.

If Facebook website is not loading, then there are some initial remedies to fix this problem.

1. Use Mozilla Firefox as your web browser. Facebook loads faster in this browser.
2. Install Adobe Flash Player, this will help also with the loadings, especially with requiring graphics display.
3. Clear Recent History in your internet browser...everything.
4. On your browser, click the TOOLS menu, then scroll down and select OPTION. Select PRIVACY Tab and click both the "clear all recent history" and "remove individual cookies" buttons.
5. Under the OPTION, select ADVANCED tab..Next to offline message, press the CLEAR NOW button.

Let me know if that solve your problem. Just post back if you still have some question.
Thank you for using Fixya.

I haven't been able to log in for about 5 days now. The error message says that this is due to "site maintenance" which would only take a few hours. Facebook says they are working on the problem, but...


Facebook has finally posted something about everyone not being able to log it. It only took them 5-6 days!! I have not been able to log in since 10/4/09) But this is what was on my page when I tried to log in this morning (10/9/09). It's about time that they let us know something. So, who know how much longer we will have to wait!

"Sorry, due to site maintenance, your account is unavailable at this time. We are currently experiencing an extended site maintenance issue that is preventing some users from accessing their accounts or Pages they may administer. Rest assured that your account has not been deleted or compromised. Your original account will be restored as soon as possible so there is no need to create a new one. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you've encountered while attempting to log in to Facebook during this time.

You can stay updated with the progress of this bug by visiting the Help Center."
