You can disable the built-in WEBcam in the BIOS setting.

SOURCE: My laptop doesn't recognise my built in Webcam, HELP :(

it might be that cable is not connected inside so its not detecting any webcam or maybe there is a switch or short key stroke to switch on and off your webcam. try to look for it on your manual.

This model Compaq laptop does not have a built-in WEB cam.
You can check the specs from this WEB site.
http://www.cnet.com/laptops/compaq-presario-cq56-115dx/4507-3121_7-34498057.html

To use video call with Skype you need to purchase an USB WEBcam, connect the WEBcam into the Compaq laptop's USB port and install the WEBcam driver that came with the WEBcam.
Then configure Skype - select the WEBcam and mic.

I dont know if i have a web cam on my compaq laptop if i do how do i get to it


Hi.

Your model of laptop does NOT come with a webcam built in, so the only way to use a webcam is to get an external one, there are several on the market that work wonderfully with your laptop.

Most electronic retail stores carry several models, just get one that suits your needs, plug it into the usb jack, install the software for it, and you should be good to go!

Good luck, and have a nice day !

Webcam not working/not found.


Does you web cam indicates(user's manual)an operating system?and will that OS support it.Operating system like Windows xp,vista or windows 7.If it is, locate another USB port like at the back of your CPU.Either your USB inputs or the cord of your webcam is not working.Cause any three of the operating system(even Linux) will immediately detect the presence of any hardware connected to it and will eventually ask for a driver from a CD provided with the webcam you purchased.And if it will be detected and you don't have the software driver,you can download it from compaq web site and install it.I'm pretty sure it will it will run smoothly.

I have an Acer Aspire 5735Z with CineCrystal, I can see the webcam but my laptop cannot pickup anything, saying there is no webcam, help me!


Go to www.acer.com > US > Support > Drivers > Put you model number in > Select your operating system (Windows 7 64-bit or other) > download the web cam driver and double click it to install. If this procedure does not work, you probably have a web cam failure for your built-in web cam. You can purchase a portable web cam and plug it into your USB port.

USB devices (not recognized)


Hi Hanna,

You may try to uninstall and reinstall the driver of your webcam. You may need to check also if the driver application is compatible with the operating you are using. Most of the new system we have now are operating in 2.0 USB port drivers.

If your webcam driver is compatible only with windows XP, then it won't help you resolve the problem if your system is operating in Windows Vista (new operating system for most new system).

Please clarify also the type and model of the webcam you are using. keep me posted.

Thanks.
