On messengers: when you open IM window, click on "View my web cam".

If you just want to test it, click on the software which you have installed, and click on play web cam.

You will also see web cam icon on your explorer where you see "C" drive "D" drive, you will also see webcam icon, click on it and your webcam will start.

You may have to activate it in the BIOS setup. Reboot your laptop and enter setup, usually tapping the F8 key a couple of times during boot will get you there. Check your owners manual for your particular BIOS, my ASUS eeePC 1000HE is the F2 key during reboot, for example.

Look around your setup choices for webcam menu. Check to see if it is ENABLED or DISABLED on Start. Make sure it is set to ENABLED and save the setting with the F10 key. Now reboot and you should be able to find the webcam with the Setup Wizard in Windows.

My webcam won't let me take pictures .. What do i do so i can take them ?


In order to use your web cam and take pictures follow these steps :

- Check if your web cam is working or not ( when you turn on the web cam do you get the power light on or not)

- If the web cam is working fine if it is not then you can check the cables, unplug it and replug it if you are using an external cam on a desktop computer.

- Uninstall the web cam software from add and remove programs from control panel.

- reinstall the web cam software / utility.
you can do this using the disc which you have got when you bought the web cam.

If you don't have the disc you can go to the manufacturers web page and you can download the software and driver from there.
Must ensure that you select the correct serial number of your web cam when you do this.

My web cam is built into my laptop but i cant turn it on now


Its either the web cam is broken or that the driver for it is corrupted and now the os has no way of controling or turning on the web cam.

Try this:

Reinstall the web cam driver.

If this does not work, check device manager and see if the webcam is listed.

If the camera's driver is reinstalled and the unit is listed then there is an os issue.

Write back to me with your findings after you have tried all above

How do i turn on the webcam on my acer 2930


I would assume this is a built in web-cam. Normally a web-cam software comes installed on your computer and all you need to do start the software and the web-cam will start. Or you may use this link to get a free web-cam software. http://www.eyespyfx.com/my_webcam_broadcaster.htm
Note, if the web-cam is not a built in web-cam this will work a bit differently.
