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It might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: This will find all of your outdated drivers This program will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be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

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.

Pictures not showing on Facebook


The Facebook profile picture is often the first thing that visitors notice when they come to your page. Your picture also helps old friends and acquaintances to find your page and connect with you. If your profile picture is not showing up, you could be missing many valuable connections. The most common reason for a profile picture not showing is a Facebook bug. These bugs will usually be corrected and will not require any action from you. The display picture may also not come up because it wasn't uploaded and selected correctly.

Upload your profile picture. Log into your Facebook profile. Select "Edit My Profile." Click "Profile Picture." Select "Choose File." Select your profile picture in the browser window, and click "Open." The picture is now set as your profile picture. Make your album picture your profile picture. Click "Photos" on your Facebook page. Click on an album. Double-click on a picture. Choose "Make Profile Picture" underneath the photo. Unblock Facebook images in Firefox. If you are using the Firefox Web browser, click the "Tools" menu and select "Options." Click the "Content" tab and click "Exceptions." Highlight the Facebook URL in the Exceptions window. Click "Remove Site." Close the Exceptions window. Then click "OK." Close and restart the Firefox browser. Hope this helps.

I am trying to take a picture for my facebook profile picture and i am using the built in webcam on my U135DX i am not sure exactly how to take a picture. Please help


You can actually go into facebook and select "take a photo" from the status updates. From there you can select "take a photo with my webcam" and it'll turn your webcam on after asking you permission to access it. From there you can take a photo! It's nice and easy that way.

How do u download pic 2 wprofile on web site


Hi!

Just what exactly are you trying to do. Your picture to be uploaded and become the profile picture in a website profile page (like Facebook or yahoo or gmail)?

First of all you need to save the picture as jpeg format (recommended format for image and picture.
You will need to shorten the image size of the picture. Because most of picture uploader needs at utmost 150 kb size of the image file. (In case your picture exceeds the allowable size.. there is a free software that you can use to cut the image size of your picture (like Image Resizer program)

Just post back if you still have some question.

thank you for using Fixya
