How do i access my Sony vaio webcam


Sony's Vaio laptop computer line includes the company's Motion Eye webcam and ArcSoft WebCam Companion software for Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Located in the LCD screen's upper bezel, the webcam is positioned at face-level when seated at the computer and automatically tracks movement to keep subjects within the lens's field of view.

1.Click on the "Start" menu at the bottom left corner of your screen, choose "All Programs" at the bottom of the menu just above the search box.
2.Scroll through the program list until "ArcSoft WebCam Companion" is located. Alternatively, you may type "WebCam Companion" in the search box to locate the program.
3.Click on the WebCam Companion icon to open the program. The program window will open, offering choices of Capture, Record, Monitor and Edit. Capture is used to take still pictures individually or in a series, Record is used to record videos, Monitor records videos when motion is detected and Edit allows editing of previously recorded videos.
4.Choose the webcam function you wish to use by clicking the icon. The appropriate screen will open, activating the webcam and displaying the camera view on-screen. The on-screen view will display what is within the field of the webcam lens, allowing you to adjust the LCD screen or your position before beginning webcam functions.
5.Click the webcam function according to the mode you have chosen. Functions in Capture mode include Capture or Burst, Record in the Record mode, Monitor in the Monitor mode and Snap Shot or Edit Video in Edit mode. When you have completed your webcam activity, the program automatically saves your video or snap shot within the program to be accessed, viewed or edited at a later time.

I'm trying to take pictures from my Eee pc computer's e-cam and put it on yahoo, how do I do it?


There should be software provided for the camera, check the list of programs in the start menu. Once you've found the software, there will be a utility for taking pictures and recording video. Usually the pictures are saved somewhere in my documents, but if you can't find them, there will be a setting somewhere in the webcam software that will tell you where they are being saved to. once you have the picture you want, open yahoo messenger, click 'messenger' in the top menu, then click 'my display image' and tell it where to find the image you want to use.

    I have an acer aspire 5742 laptop how do i turn my webcam on


    Hi, Webcams are a great way to communicate with friends and family in other places, while still feeling like they're in the room with you. There are many different types of webcams and many different computers to go with them. So, if you happen to be a new Acer Aspire 1 owner, then follow this simple guide, and you'll be sending video of yourself to friends and family in no time Instructions
    1. Access the main menu of your Aspire 1, and click on the "Start" menu at the bottom of the screen

    2. Click on "All Programs" from the list of options, and then select "Acer Arcade Delux."

    3. Choose the "DV Wizard" option once the menu appears. Wait for the program to load.

    4. Select "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" from the main menu of DV Wizard. Now an image capture screen will appear on your desktop.

    5. Position the Acer so you are framed clearly in the image capture screen. The webcam is built into the computer with the lens at the top of the screen, so you will have to move the entire laptop to find the right angle. Also, adjust the lighting near you for optimum picture quality.

    6. Go to the tool bar in the lower left hand corner of the computer screen to access the functions of the webcam. If you would like to record, highlight the box icon with the red dot in the middle and the word "Record" will appear over it.

    7. Click the "Record" icon to record video with the webcam. You can also choose "Pause" and "Stop" from the same tool bar. To use video messaging, access your online messenger. Whether it's AOL, MSN or any other messenger service, the program will detect the webcam. All you need to do is enable the video messaging by clicking on the webcam box.

    I have an HP Laptop with the webcam. Here is info on it.

    There should be an icon on the desktop that you can double click to activate it. Then if it is activated the blue light will go on next to the webcam. If there is no icon do the following:

    5. If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, you should install the original webcam drivers.
