Sure, you need to find the software package on your computer for the web camera. Then open the package and find the menu where you can take photos.

Is your webcam inbuilt or is it a USB external?

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).

Depending on the webcam, there should be some software that came with it. If oyu dont have that, look for the brand and model number on the webcam itself. Google the brand and model number then then the word software after it. See if you can find the software to use.

Also, you should be able to make use of your webcam with Yahoo, AOL, MSN messenger applications.

Built in webcam cannot detected by its software


Make sure the program that your using doesn't have the camera offline.

Then if the driver installed properly and you see the camera listed in the device manager then the next step would be to open up the LCD. You'll need to turn off the laptop.

Take the rubbers off of the lcd bezel then unscrew the screws out of there. Take off the lcd front bezel and this will expose the screen and also expose the built in webcam. Make sure the connector for the webcam is actually plugged in. You might have to reseat the connector or best thing is disconnect it and then reconnect it back.

Now go ahead and turn it on and use the webcam program and see if it works, if it still doesn't work then the built in webcam is bad.
