    Make sure your laptop is in a well lit area and see if the captured images are better.

My webcam is coming up very blue and fuzzy is there a way to fix that for the Toshiba satellite L655


Hello!
Webcams in general have very low resolution. But you can improve the appearance of your image with this little trick:
Before the webcam starts capturing, try pointing it to a light source, so when it starts it should receive enough light to provide a brighter image afterwards. You can take it off the light source when you see that the image improves and use it normally.
This happens because most webcams' drivers are programmed to display an image based on the initial light conditions. So if you start using it in a dark place, when you try to move to a brighter area, the image would look blue and fuzzy, as the webcam was adapted to those lightning conditions.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck!

Laptop Inbuilt Webcam Problem (Compaq C791TU)


Log on to your laptop as an administrator, create a new user account and log on using that new user account and see if you have the same problem. If you have the same problem, uninstall the new driver, which you have installed first and then create a new user account and log on.

Thanks,

Windows error " Please turn on the camera"


Your lap top should have the necessary programming already installed.The cam is normally used in video,film or video chat format.When you have a video link on MSN MESSENGER,you can click on the video call to a contact,and even though they have no camera,they will get a video picture link of you from your camera but you will only be able to talk to each other,as you will get no picture as they have no camera.Get windows live messenger 8.5 and use the video link with your contacts.
