I can't find my built in web cam on my start menu its like it is no longer in my computer, how can i find it?

First try to check if your system is detecting the hardware, go to Device Manager and check if there are installed drivers under "imaging devices". if none, check if there are yellow marks under unknown devices.

How do i use my built in webcam to take and upload pics?

its a little harder to upload photos on a web cam that is mounted on the laptop as in order to keep them in focus they are generally set for a 2-3 ft away focus plane. Although still possible you would need to hold the photo steady at that distance and create a still image. At any rate this image will only be as good as your web cams resolution, so a scan is a much better photo way to transfer and wont have the bad background around it like the web cam photo. A scan will help you crop it too.

as for the actual use of the web cam you will have a program that you need to launch. has its own program and you are able to take photos with it and communicate live as well. go through your programs list on the left hand corner of your screen choose Start, Programs, and look through them one by one until you get one that has the web cam program. if none of them do get the skype and try it instead.

When i make a call on the skype...the other person sees the pink video of mine i see myself pink too...what can i do to solve it...My Os win7..

This might be an issue with your web cam settings or the web cam itself. Try going through the options of the web cam to see if there are any settings making the web cam display everything pink. If not then try the web cam in another computer (I'm assuming you have a desktop with an external web cam) see if the video is still pink. If it is then there is an issue with your web cam if not then it is an issue with the settings on your computer

In the event that you are using a laptop with a built in web cam you might want to check if you still have a warranty to get the web cam repaired.

Hope this helps

When i use to open my acer built in web cam ........ it shows an error.......... that is "no video captured device was detected on your system"

Go to control panel, double click system , click hardware tab and click device manager. Check there if you can see your Genius Look 315FS Web Cam is installed. If none or there is a device with a question mark. That means not yet been installed. Or try to switch your webcam to the other usb port if your computer detect just click next and so forth and if asking for the driver install it and test. Good day. Always remember for the compatibility hardware. It must be compatible according to operating system. Good Day.

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.
Note, if the web-cam is not a built in web-cam this will work a bit differently.
