Device Manager truly shows if it is installed correctly. Whether it works or not is a different matter. You need software to run the camera.

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





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).

The inbuilt webcam on my brand new zoostorm laptop is not working it is not recognising it in devices even though i am staring at it!!!!! very frustrating. The laptop came with windows 7


Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today. Webcams and Windows 7 are the source of a lot of confusion. There is no built-in viewer for WebCam in Windows 7!

The webcam will not normally show up on the "Devices and Printers" page. But look at "Device Manager" and click on Imaging devices. You should see it there. If it is not there then you have a different problem.

If it appeared in Device Manager and you want to see the camera work, you need to test it with a program that will use the cam. Yahoo Mesenger will allow you to see your cam in action.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today. Don't forget to vote. 4 thumbs up please.

I installed windows 7 from windows vista home premium and the motion eye webcam that is built in will not turn on during any form of video call


Most likely it is a driver problem. I would go to the laptop manufactures website to see if they have an updated driver for Windows 7. Since Windows 7 is so new they may not have one. Installing Vista as a virtual machine (with software like VMware Workstation) on your new Windows 7 operating system. This may be the only work around until a Windows 7 driver is put out for your system.

To see if you are having driver problems, go to device manager by holding the windows key and pressing "R" which opens up a Run window then type in devmgmt.msc then click "OK" (or press enter) which will open up the Device Manager window. Your webcam will most likely be under Imaging devices and you may notice that it has an exclamation point on it. If you double click on the webcam name in device manager a properties windows for the Webcam will open up and under Device Status it will tell you if the device is working correctly. If it isn't it probably just needs an updated driver for Windows 7.

Webcam driver probably did not install properly.

Go to Device Manager. Unistall the Webcam. Reboot.

Vista will scan for new hardware, locate the Webcam and reinstall the driver.

Good luck.
