You aren't connected on some hp's you may have to redownload the drivers for the cam, thats what i had to do when I first got my laptop, also it must be completly turned off cause if your using it in another program it will recognize it as being inuse and it will not allow it to turn on. you have to manually turn it on through the messanger service options menu.

How do i use an acer aspire 7741z-4815 webcam thank you for the help


Hi, there should be a program within the laptop through which you can use the camera but in some cases if there is none installed other software like yahoo messenger, msn messenger, skype and so forth all use the camera to chat with other people with cameras, you can easily check if the camera work by signing into one of those and going into Audio/Video setup to check... other software is also available through the web for free and can allow you to use the camera and capture images and video clips with it.. the following link has some and you can also search the net for anything like 'webcam software' Best of Luck

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

Webcamera wont work


You should find the cam in my computer.
Most programs such as yahoo and msn have a video icon when clicked your cam should be picked up automatically.

My webcam wont work at all on msn


Hi, if the camera works corectamente and only it trumps you when you enter MSN, you must reinstall the operating system with the disc of recovery that it brings the machine, it is possible that for manipulation, installation or a virus they have damaged the S.O and because of it there owes the malfuncionamiento of your camera with the MSN.
