You will be provided with a CD/DVD with the package. Put the disk in its drive and the installation will begin automatically.
If it does not autorun then access the drive in My Computer/Computer right click and explore and look for a Setup file (.exe) Install the software and then connect the webcam.
The webcam will have a USB cable attached to it. Connect the cable to the USB port.
The camera will be detected and will be avaialble in My computer/ Computer.
Once this is done. Open and sign into your IM account. Look for an option related to Webcam and click it on it. This will enable you to turn on the webcam and chat with your friends.

    You must have a CD you received with the camera. Kindly put it in and install the software.

    Is the webcam attached to the PC? or have you connected it to the PC.

    If the Monitor has an integrated webcam kindly let me know the Montior model. If the webcam is a seperate unit I would like to have the webcam model.

    Is it a laptop / Monitor with a built in cam?

  • Sai Kiran Camsarapalli Jul 28, 2009

    If it is a laptop / Monitor. You must have received a CD with it where in you can download the in built webcam driver.

    If you do not have it, you can get the drivers in the manufacturer's website. Download and install the same.

My webcam microsoft webcam is not function with live web caht through skype

Please try THIS to see if your webcam is working if there is no picture using this then the webcam is not installed correctly or damaged. If you have more than one video in for example a tuner card then you will need to select your webcam from the drop down menu.

Please rate if this helps
