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!

Hello Jonathan,

Thanks for posting your problem in Fixya. It seems that you are having some trouble with your webcam. To check whether your webcam is working well or not, you can always download any webcam software from the vendor's website on a full or trial basis. For this, you can try this trusted webcam software as a fully-working trial for some specified days: Cyberlink Webcam
You can try this software and let us know, if this solution help you. If not, then we will try another solution.

Hope this helps,
Regards,

Then it is not supported.
You could try locate the latest drivers for your laptop.
If it says not skype certified webcam, not alot you can do other than buy a cheap webcam to use with skype.
here is a nice little cam for $20 http://shop.skype.com/webcams/standard/iss-talk-7000/

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.

Yeah it could be a virus or mother board might need to be replaced because your usb ports are integrated with the motherboard. First try to put a keyboard or mouse on the usb port just to test its functionality,if mouse or keyboard works,that means it could be your usb/windows registries might have been corrupted..you might need to install windows,if mouse or kbd didnt work,it could be the motherboard/usb ports

Using a webcam


Yes. You need to use the same program in order to talk with each other. Also, in my experiences with webcam setup and the different program carriers to use for best picture quality, I use Skype. I tried AOL, Yahoo etc. and Skype worked the best. You can have the best webcam on the market, but if you don't have a good carrier, the picture quality and sound can still be affected. Since your friend already has MSN, try that yourself and see if it works out for you. Good luck!
