First of all do you have any disks that came with the camera. Second turn off the computer then , plug the camera into the USB port,then turn the computer on. If you have Windows XP it will more than likely recognize the camera and install it for you. I recently installed my Logitech webcam like this. Visit the webcam company website and look for some support or FAQ section. Its a bit hard to tell you what to do with no informaion on the make and moel of your web cam

Webcam doesn't work the way I want it can't take photos

Make sure your webcam is connected to the USB port of your computer, installed appropriately, and the computer is on and ready.

How can i take photo in my vostro 1015 notebook. Even i am not able to find the shortcut icon for my web cam. when i am using skype, oovoo, i can able to access my wbcam. I want to know how to access...


Normally there would be software provided by laptop manufacturer to take still pictures on the computer. However, if your webcam is detected in Windows (I am guessing you are running Windows 7 ) you may try the steps below and check if you can capture still photos.
  1. Click on Start.
  2. Click on Control panel.
  3. Select Device and printers.
  4. If your Webcam is listed there click on it and check you can see the cam working.
  5. Also check for the option to capture still photo.

I need to know HOW to operate a Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000,so far I have installed it OK along with Messager, and I can take a photo/video of myself etc, BUT HOW do I carry on a conversation with a friend...


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

If it fails to work here concentrate on your webcam drivers and software before moving forward.

Set your webcam mic (if it has one as default)
Vista -

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'
