If you own a web camera or if your Dell computer comes with a built-in web camera, you can complete a video conference on your computer.
There are a variety of free chat programs that provide free video messaging such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger or Google Chat.
With these programs, all you will need to do a video conference is add the person you wish to conference with to your buddy list.

Download and install a messaging software program such as Skype, Yahoo or Google Chat if you do not already have one installed on your Dell computer.
No matter which messaging program you use, the video call or conferencing feature works the same.
Launch the messaging software on your Dell computer.
Click on your buddy list or contact list.


Click on the contact with whom you'd like to video conference.
If he isn't one of your contacts, you will need to add him to your messenger contact list by clicking on "New" and then "New Contact."

Click on the contact name and select "Video Call."
You will now have a video conference call on your Dell computer.

My voice call and video not working


First update your yahoo messenger, then you need to setup voice call and video settings.
To get started, click on the Messenger menu and select"Preferences". When the Preferences window opens, click "Video & Voice" onthe left hand menu. This will bring up your options on the right hand side: If you know immediately which devices you want Yahoo! Messenger to use foryour camera, microphone etc., just select them in the drop down menu. Dependingon your type of computer and other software or hardware you have installed, youmay only have one or many options available. For a guided setup, click the "Open Voice and Video Setup" link in thePreferences window. This will take you through three setup steps where you canselect the devices you want to use for your microphone, speakers/headset and web cam. After selecting each one in the setup, you'll be able to test andconfirm they are working. Once you've successfully completed the Voice and Video Setupsteps, you'll be ready to start making free PC-to-PC calls.

It wont work on yahoo or msn


Normal 0 Here is one for Yahoo Messenger.

Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. What Messenger are you using? I'll assume that you are using YAHOO MESSENGER and I'll walk you through the setup. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "Calling & Devices."
When that comes up check and check to see that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to you audio card.

Then go to "Test Audio "In the Blue print, "Open the call setup Assistant" When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.

You probably already know how to setup Messenger's but if you don't, hope this helps. Bud
