Talking about Netbooks, most of it's kind is installed with a Win7 Starter Edition. You just can do less with that OS, sad to say but in order for you to use your camera in skype you need to upgrade its drivers, and for you to upgrade the drivers for the camera, you need to install you own copy of Win7 OS any version will do, Home Premium, Professional, Business or Ultimate just get rid of that Win7 Starter edition first. We have available drivers for your camera on

How to activate the webcam

Easiest way to activate the webcam I've found, is not to try hunting for the driver, etc... it's usually pre-installed for laptops or netbooks with built-in cameras, best way is to download applications like Skype with video chat, install the software, and then test using Skype. That usually works.

Hello. My name is Florina Pop and I am using a Lenovo Ideapad Y560 laptop with Cyberlink YouCam 3 installed.The web cam is incorporated on the laptop.I bought the laptop with all the basic software...


I don't think its your webcam that is at fault. I think it's already in skype. I have the same Lenovo model and there are times skype doesn't transmit video. So, I usually do is turn on and turn off the skype video call for the video to reappear. Can you do the following:

1) Make sure you have adequate lighting. Sometimes if you are in a dark room, skype will also transmit black videos to the other end.

2) Have you checked the video settings in skype? Go to Tools->Options. Click video settings. Click webcam settings and try to tweak your video from there.

Does the digital camera on my netbook works the same as a webcam on skype?

Dear jimmarais:

I have just installed the Skype and maybe it might need a cable so that your dg cam can connect to your pc.
