May be your system in not recognizing the web cam. Check it if the web cam is compatible with the operating system..Also check device manager for any hardware conflict.

I don't know how to access my webcam


Hello:
For the majority of webcam uses, you would use a separate program that accesses the webcam. Examples include: If you only want to record videos and take pictures, you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. You can download it at http://explore.live.com/windows-live-movie-maker?os=other

I can not figure out how to turn on the webcam


The easiest way, if you do not have webcam program, is to use communication programs, like Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, or Skype. All have webcam operating programs.

There is no webcam available in Windows Live messenger. In Skype and Windows Messenger the webcam is well availble. What is wrong? It is a new N310 with windows XP. A second installation of windows live...


Tools > Audio and video setup...

Follow the instructions on the setup screen and once its finished, you will find that the webcam should be able to show up.
If it doesn't show the webcam on the other person, tell him to switch his status to busy for 5 seconds and then back, hopefully that should come up on the other persons screen.

If this hasn't work in most cases it should work - You will have to downgrade to Windows Live Messenger 8.5 and hopefully it should work.

If this hasn't work, go to the HP website and search up webcam drivers for your device and then install it on your computer - Hopefully your webcam would work.Download reginout intel partne to fix messenger registry problems

Do you currently have it being used by the other program? If you do, Windows Live Messenger won't be able to take control of the webcam so you can use it.
