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It might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: This will find all of your outdated drivers This program will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be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.

    You first need the driver installed on the computer system before Facebook will recognize the camera as a valid video source. Once the driver is installed, Facebook will prompt you for an authorization to use the cam. Go to Logitech.com. Click "Support and Downloads." http://www.logitech.com/en-us/435/6816?s... Select the model number of your Logitech webcam. Select the webcam software download. Click "Download Software."Click "Start" and "Computer." Navigate to your Web browser's default downloads folder, which may be in your Documents folder or could be in a location you defined. Double-click your Logitech installation software. Press "Run" when prompted. Click "Next." Select "Quick Install" and "Next." Connect your webcam to your computer when the installation software requests you to do so. Click "Finish" as the installation completes Load Facebook.com in your browser. Click "Photo" on the status update bar. Click "Take a Photo." Click "Allow" to allow Facebook to access your cam for a picture. Click the icon on the webcam window, and type a description in the box. Press "Share" to post your cam photo. http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=830

SOURCE: My Logitech HD Webcam C510

Hi, well this is usually caused by some incompatibility between Skype and the drivers... ALL, that you can do is this... Find and install the latest drivers for your Webcam, then obtain the latest version of Skype, and after installing and restarting your PC, install/re-install Skype. Also most important, obtain and install the latest Video Card drivers, and make sure they are updated First, then install the drivers, then install Skype, rebooting in between. All layers must work together, and be able to "see" each other. Also you must have an Overlay this usually is with the manufacturers Video Driver.
Now also check the advanced video settings, of the camera, here you can adjust things like Format, Color, Contrast, Brightness etc, you may have to adjust these parameters to get a good picture.

Facebook does not recognize my log in information. I have had the account for many years.


If you've had the same security settings Facebook may be blocking the log in. There's been quite a few accounts being hacked. I had someone hack mine and was sending all my friends videos that had viruses in them. So when they open the video a virus was downloaded in their device. You just may need to update your security information. Or you could have suspicious activity on your account. I would update my security information and contact Facebook and let them know about my login information not working. TThat way if it was them you would know and if not then they can keep a watch on your account.
Hope this helped

We have a logitech web cam .We have been using it for over a month.Due to a computer problem which required a system restore we lost our account. We have been refused to reestablish our account...


Never put your email address on a public forum such as this.
Is the account you are having trouble with, associated with the Logitech Vid/SightSpeed video calling service?
If so, you need to address your support question to the support service there, try at this website:
http://logitech-en-ap.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_ap.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php?section=contact&subsection=email&crid=595<_product_id=**&tabs=**&cl=au,en

Where it asks for Product, enter 'webcams and video calling', 'video calling', then 'Logitech Vid' in the boxes that appear.

Tell them you can't log on, and what your account name and email address are, and let them fix the problem and explain what you need to do next.

You can also use your webcam with Skype or oovoo, as an alternative to Vid/SightSpeed, which will mean setting up a separate account with one of those organisations.

Whenever you set up a new account with an organisation, I suggest keeping a record of the userid, password, and the linked email address you used to establish the account. Keep all your records in a file that is encrypted - using a Word document with a password is a good idea. If you don't know how to set that up, feel free to log that as a separate request on FixYa.
