Question about PC Laptops

Aim & webcam problem, help me please.

Ok. So, I was trying to go on webcam with my friend and we have done it before and it worked just fine. We did it last night, actually and it worked fine. Now today, we try to go on and when it opens up and loads, I just see myself on my little screen & where he should be showing up. Then every now and then, his would be a black screen, but I'd see myself. Most of the time, I just saw myself double.

Does anyone know why and how to fix it?

    I tried this. The weird thing is, it works just fine at my mom's house, but it wouldn't work at my dad's. And it worked at my friend's house.
    It just wouldn't work with AIM at my dad's.

    I am assuimg that you are connected to the internet, and that his camera is working fine and he is connected and online.

    FIrst thing to try is a reboot. Then see if the camera intializes, and that AIM can tell its working. Try this and let me know what happens.

Well, that sounds like either

a. your dad is a computer guy, or knows one, and is blocking that traffic at his router

b. to slow of a connection at dads


B more likely, as A is normally an extrerme route to take

You probably have multiple video cameras and AIM has defaulted the wrong one

on AIM:
1. go to edit
2. settings
3. enhanced im
4. audio & video
5. camera
6. choose something other than default
7. apply
8. repeat 1-7 until the image appears

My webcam won't work on msn!


Unistall Windows Live Messenger
Erase the installation folder and this (XP): .\Documents and Settings\All Users\WLinstaller (or something that begins with WL and sound like that)
in Vista is in .\ProgramData\
REBOOT: REALLY IMPORTANT, I DID IT WITHOUT REBOOT AND DIDN'T WORK
After reboot, reinstall.
And everything's done.

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam


The first thing to check is if your webcam is working correctly. If you're running Windows XP, click on the "start" button, then click on "My Computer". Now double click on "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". It should now show a screen with video from the webcam (probably of your face in front of the computer).

This is not your fault, if their sound and their video is messed up then it is either the audio quality or it is because of their camera/audio setup. Hope I Helped!

My webcam wont work at all on msn


Hi, if the camera works corectamente and only it trumps you when you enter MSN, you must reinstall the operating system with the disc of recovery that it brings the machine, it is possible that for manipulation, installation or a virus they have damaged the S.O and because of it there owes the malfuncionamiento of your camera with the MSN.

Webcam


hi friend,
First think you have check is see your video on your computer, you dont how to see if you are using the windows xp operating system. goto my computer the see the web cam on the other device. double click the icon and then it shows the video of your's. If you cant see any icon on the My computer window. Then you have to see the My computer porperties.
there you can see the hardware tab and hardware settings and see the multimedia devices. see it is working properly.

you can't see after these changes of settings then you have to install the web cam software again on your computer.

inform if the prob comes again
bye friend.
