Okay, the driver for the webcam (hal.dll) needs to be reinstalled.

Do the following:

Press the windows key and R
Type in command
In the command prompt that comes up:
Type in cd C:\Windows\System32
Type in taskkill /f /im "hal.dll"
Type in del hal.dll
Then restart your computer

What taskkill does is kill the webcam application that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the webcam driver, and the problem will be fixed!

My microphone is not working when I try to Skype but the camera does work


Good day,

This sometimes happens if skype is using the wrong mic line.
To set the correct line:
1. In skype go to Tools in the top menu bar and then select options.
2. Select audio settings on the left hand menu.
3. Click on the drop down box next to microphone.
4. Select each setting until you see the green bar respond when you talk into the mic.
5. Click save.

This will solve your problem. Make sure that the mic is plugged into the red audio jack!

Regards

Crystal-Eye Webcam not found by any programs(Messenger-Skype,etc.


Sorry you are having trouble. To check goto the control panel. goto System. Goto Hardware. Goto Device manager and find the webcam. If it does not have an exclamation mark next to it then the problem is Skype. If it does have an exclamation mark next to it then you have somehow lost the driver and it needs to be re-installed.

HP Deluxe Webcam on SKYPE 4.0-friends can hear but not see me.


hello you've probably given up and binned the cam by now - we nearly did. but solved it last night. It's the annoying photo editing program that opens automatically when your camera opens up that's interfering with Skype. called magic-i or something like that. Remove that from your comp and the camera works fine. good luck!!

Logitech QuickCam Deluxe video won't work


Send thhis to him so he can check his Audio & Video settings.

Normal 0 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 set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
