Okay my web cam is saying that i need to close the other streaming application and i dont know what else is running

Hi. it is easy to find out what applications are running on your computer at any given time. Your computer may have come with a web camera application (mine did), and if that is running, it may not allow you to use the camera in Skype or other video streaming software.
To find out if there are other streaming programs running on your computer, do the following:
1, Press CTL+ALT+DEL 2. Select "Task Manager." 3. A list of all running applications are displayed. To ens an application, select it and click "End Task."
I hope this helps.

I can't get my web-cam on how do i use my web-cam.please help

You can try to use some diagnostic tools came with your computer, usually you will find them in some HP tools or utilities menu from the start menu, check the manual to see where they are exactly, so you can see whether your web cam is working or not. To use your web cam, you need to use an application with the web cam function such as MSN or Skype from where you can launch a video chat session.

I can not open the web camera.As soon as i hit the camera button it always says "Web Cam is busy".Please find me a solution

Hello dhungel,

It seems that any application is using your web cam already.
Use the task manager( Ctrl + Alt + Del ) to stop all unnecessary application which you not needed or not know. Then try to run this web cam it should work.

If still its giving problem then check it from Control Panel > Camera, it should work here.

Just bought my laptop in December of 2009. Now my light for my video camera won't turn on.

Go to device manager uninstall the driver for the web cam then after that download the latest driver for your web cam in the support website of dell.
Then, install it if that doesn't work. Access BIOS of your laptop that will be f2 on the start up of your computer check if the web cam is detected.
If it is reinstalling the application of the web cam can help,
If it is not detected and after you've tried the all the things that I've told you it's either you end up erasing everything on your computer or replacing the web cam which is integrated in your LCD.

I have an acer aspire 5735z laptop webcam

Dear Sir,

Acer Aspire Model generally comes with a bison web cam driver.
To use the web cam search for an application that installed in program files.In windows Xp web cam can be used by double clicking camera icon present in my computer. If you are using windows vista or other operating system you need an camera application software,to use it. Without application software you can use your web camera only in messengers,for example yahoo messenger. If u had an yahoo messenger login and click on view my web cam,now you can see your face in your laptop.So first thing is search for an application software installed on your laptop.

good luck

You may uninstall the web cam driver from the Device Manager then restart the Computer. After restarting the Computer, please reinstall the web cam driver. You may locate the Web cam driver under the Imaging Devices category in the Device Manager. If the issue persists then you may perform System Restore to restore the system files to the time when the web cam worked normally.
