Can the built in web cam be used when chatting on messenger? if so how?


Yes, you can use your web cam in any form of chatting. For example, install yahoo messenger and use it when video chatting. Activate yoi webcam by viewing my webcam icon. and it will display your image. For your chatmate to view. Invite him to view your webcam and you can not start video chatting

Make sure drivers are installed for both webcams, and then if that doesnt work try reinstalling the software on both computers.

Do you use yahoo messenger to chat? If your are using yahoo messenger, while chatting, look be-nit the chat box, you would see a web cam symbol, click it and you will see a warning box pop out. Click OK and your web cam will automatically be activated.

You would have to wait a little while for the web cam to show, because it has to load. Loading time depends solely on your computer and internet connection speed.

Best wishes.

How to get web cam working that came with HP Pavilion


You can use the pre-installed software like YouCam or something. Or use a chat software like Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ, Google Talk or Live Messenger for video chatting. You can't take pics and vids there.

I am haveing a trouble with my web cam


If your web cam is working on the unit itself but fails to open on chats or messengers, do this:
1. Turn off UAC (user access controls), it should be on control panel, user accounts.
2.Test your webcam if it would work now on chats, if not, proceed
3. Download the latest chicony web cam software on support.toshiba.com (you must select your exact model)
4.After downloading, go into programs and features on control panel and uninstall the camera software
5. Install now the downloaded camera software
6.Test your cam, it should work now

Hope this helps...
