SOURCE: Problem: MSI A6000-029u Webcam has stopped

Here is the home page for your system at the MSI site.
There is link for drivers and downloads. Start with these. I would roll back any updates first.

SOURCE: my thinkpad t43 26684du screen goes very dim after use (half hour). when i reboot it won't shut down until i remove battery. restarts fine for a while. irun win 7 ultimate all updated.

There is two problem possible for these symptoms:
1st one is due to inverter
2nd one is due to screen backlight lamp (CCFL)

You need technical support. We may need some components to be changed. If you think you can do it on your own, see http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/09/05/troubleshooting-laptop-with-backlight-failure/

SOURCE: EliteBook 6930p laptop running Window 7. Problem is the intergrated webcams works for Skype, but how do I use the webcam to record other videos outside of Skype? I don't see the webcam showing up

What program came with the laptop to operate the webcam? HP sometimes uses CyberLink. I don't know what came with your machine.

I have a hp deluxe webcam model KQ246AA. When I try to have a video call with Skype, It doesn't work , Says unknown video error or sometime it has said camera is in use by another application????


Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.(webcam not found or webcam in use elsewhere error messages)
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.
For more information about how to configure Skype Messenger, please visit the following Skype Web site:

You can't have two video cameras in operation at the same time. Video cameras are known as "streaming devices" to the operating system.

You will need to go into your device manager and "DISABLE" the one camera you don't want to use in order for the other to work properly.

How do I use the built in webcam for a video in a phone conversation


You'll need to use a software that has video conferencing capabilities. There are some that are specific to video meetings like oovoo or you can use IM software. I know that Yahoo Chat allows for video chatting, I've done this on my HP laptop with my sister. Facebook has a video link option, I've never used that one though so I don't know if it allows you to record using Facebook or if you have to upload a video already recorded.
