Re: My web cam cant be detected
disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software
program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the
USB port, do so and it should work.
to use it on the Web do this. Web Camera’s have to be
setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera
on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for
the Audio and Video to function properly. A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone
and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
click on the Video Settings.
camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your
friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you. B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger
) set it up as follows:
Messenger at the top left and click on it.
go down to Preferences and click on it.
Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to
the computer Audio Card.
go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on
“Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left
C. Windows Live Messenger:

square on top left next to the red X.

Try connecting it in a different usb port, also try downloading different driver for it as the support panel says, there are two drivers for it. It could be you need to patch the hardware registry for it.
to install web cam to your computer you must put the usb to the usb port then insert the driver cd to the cd driver and press install...click and wait until it will finish install then after that you can use your cam..
PLUG OUT YOUR WEB CAM, RESTART YOUR PC, THEN LOAD THE DRIVERS FOR THE WEB CAM PROVIDED. REMEBER NOT TO PLUG YOUR WEB CAM USB IN SAME PORT YOU CONNECTED BEFORE, PLUG IT INTO OTHER ONE ONTOP OR BESIDE IT, PLUG IT.. IT WILL SEARCH FOR THE DRIVERS, SELECT ..AUTOMITICALLY INSTALL DRIVERS, HOPE IT WORKS
check the usb settings enabled in the bios or the cable inside the laptop.In some case the usb cable inside get fault and it will not detect the web cam.In normal case if you plug any usb device it will detect the usb device then the os will show new hardware found and will allow you to install the software for it,if it doesnt detect you cannot install the driver for it and in the yahoo messenger it give the message
due to usb cable problem it couldnt be recognized.
did you change the usb cable? or it could be the driver problem.
First install the software for this camera and then plug the webcam to your usb port and it will automatically detect ur web cam and it will ask your webcam driver too.
THE PROPER WAY ON INSTALLING USB DEVICES
A. Enable usb ports on the BIOS.
1. Do not plug in your device right away. Install all drivers and software first!
3. Plug the power or turn on your USB Device
4. Plug in the USB Port.
5. Windows Will detect the Device Automatically.
Hope this helps.
