Dear Malimajuma,

You can purchase the Webcam from the nearest IT shop, many good quality webcams are available in the market now, you can check for A4tech cameras for less expensive webcams, moreover Logitech cameras are also a good option to buy !

External cameras bundled with installation cd, so you can install in you laptop and can be used for Video conferencing

Thanks and regards,

My emachines e627 does not have webcam can i use a external webcam

Hi and Welcome to Fixya

Yes. You may use external webcam to your computer. Make sure that the webcam uses a USB connection. All you need to do is to install the drive of your webcam and plug in the camera then you are good to go.

Have a good one!

My computer continues to say webcam not found

Receiving an error message when trying to access your webcam can be frustrating, but the problem can often be resolved by doing some basic troubleshooting.

  • If you have an external webcam, check to see if it has become accidentally unplugged from your computer.
  • Perhaps another program is using your webcam. Close other programs and try accessing your webcam again.
  • If another program has crashed for some reason, it might not have released your webcam successfully. Try closing all programs and restarting your computer.
  • If you have an external webcam, it might not have installed correctly. Try reinstalling your webcam software program according to the manufacturer's instructions. For more information, go to How do I reinstall my webcam?
  • Perhaps Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device on your computer. Try changing the camera source. For more information, go to How do I change my camera source?
  • Your webcam might not be configured correctly. Try reconfiguring your webcam according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Your camera might not be not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger you can verify this by using the webcam compatibility test. To try the webcam compatibility test, go to How can I tell if my webcam will work withYahoo! Messenger?

My friend & i use ym videocall, but he says the image quality is not that good and is blurry even if the room is well-lighted. Will buying a separate webcam with 5 megapixel (clip-on type) be better...

Most laptops come with a 0.3Mp camera, so getting an external 5Mp camera should really help. For bandwidth you will get best results if you have at least 256kb of Upstream bandwidth. has a free test you can run. Since you are most concerned about performance in chat, the fps (frames per second) of video capture is critical. Anything less than 10fps will be noticeable. Try this free webcam fps test. My internal laptop camera only got 5fps, while an external one I bought gives me 15fps. Your last question is a Maybe. If the service doesn't automatically grab your external camera you can manually select it. In Skype go under Settings, Camera. To change webcams in MSN click Tools, Audio & Video set up, Next. It should give you the option to choose what camera you want to use. I don't use Yahoo but assume it has a similar capability.

Need to keep everyone safe while party goes wild

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Have you purchased a security system yet? How many cameras do you have to set up? Will this security system be on the web or just recorded?

Is the above model (category) correct: Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000?

I can assist further with this information.

Unable to install web cam on my laptop with already fiexed webcam

yes but you have to set primary camera control from control panel. if you are running windows OS then go to control panel and find "hardware and sound"

from there select:
device manager
expand applicable menu and disable the internal camera so that the primary camera used will run as the external installed camera. (this will need to be done after camera is installed)

Want Night vision

It won't work in a room with no light at all. But if you have even a light from your monitor it will work better than most of the webcams. If you need a webcam for complete darkness you may have a look at Security Cameras
