How do i use my built in camera on my asus G73SW as, i guess it would be a stand alone camera maybe? i just want to be able to use it to see what it sees and take pictures or video.


Hi larryg12117...

Follow the instructions below to use your webcam
Click on Start then >Control panel>hardware and sound >device manager>imaging devices>web cam....enable it
Another way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messenger,NetMeeting,etc.
They will have video,picture capabilities that will work with your webcam.
You may have a webcam program built in to your computer already, go to search and put in "webcam"

    Help I have a webcam built-in to my fujitsu laptop, how does it turn on??


    Webcams are either started by their specific programs or they are used by the IMs that you use. To use with the IM you must configure the IM (Skype, Yahoo Messenger, MSN or whatever you have) from their respective Tools->Options->Video to use this webcam as the default camera. Also in the Audio option you must use the built in mic of this laptop as the default mic.
    Once you have done this then everytime you use the IM for video talk or just talk then the webcam and mic or just the mic will be used automatically.
    While if you use the specific program to use the webcam then the webcam and mic will be used without any configuration. However, you must configure things like mirroring and colors etc so that when you move to the left the video should show you moving left and not otherwise.
    Happy Holidays.
