Assuming you are using a version of windows your most likely problem is you have not set up a driver for your sound card...(whether embedded in the motherboard or a seperate board) assuming you have one. If you are not getting a plug and play prompt when you first boot go to your control panel and select add/remove hardware...follow the dialogues from there and be sure to have your sound card CD or your motherboard (if your sound card is embedded in your motherboard) cd handy. Am guessing the former by the way as "if" it was on your motherboard you would have had to have used that CD and it would have installed the driver.

Should be that simple (or complex depending on your experience level)....good luck. Tango

I don't really know how to use it. It was a gift from my daughter after my hard drive crashed.


Well, it's very easy for you to use a web camera. First you have to decide how do you want to use it.. means you can use it for video chatting through Paltalk, Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, Skype etc. For video chat you will need to install it in your PC.

To install first connect the web cam with PC. Insert the installation CD in CD/DVD-ROM, run Setup.exe and install it. Once setup is successfully completed you may need to restart the PC.

Now open and sign in your chat client (MSN messenger, Yahoo messenger, Gtalk messenger, AOL etc.) For example: If you want to start share your web cam in Yahoo messenger, just Login with your ID and password....click on Messenger choose option My Webcam.One warning message will appear...click OK....your webcam will start....Now if you want to invite someone to view your webcam, simply click on his/her ID and open IM window....click on Actions, choose More Actions from down of the list....and click on Invite to view my webcam....if he/she accepts your invitation...he/she will able to see you....again if you want to see someone who having Webcam....open the IM window by clicking his/her ID.... follow option Actions > More Actions and click on View webcam....yahoo will send the request to him/her...if he/she accept your request....you will able to see him/her....

For MSN messenger....sign in to your messenger and click on Actions and from list choose option Video and click on Show my webcam to view your webcam to others from your contact list.....or click on Start a video call to start video chat.....

To see others webcam click on View a contact's webcam....if the person accept your webcam....you will able to see his/her webcam....

Same to other chat client too...just little different in options....

I think you can get it easily...

Cant view webcams in chat rooms


some times you 1st need an invite to view persons cam.

Try this method;
I discovered that I can view chat room webcams by clicking on the name and selecting Send an Instant Message first, then on the IM box select View Webcam under Actions. (It just doesn't work when I click on their name in the chat room list and select View Webcam from there--unless their webcam says Open Webcam)

Webcam not working


Try the following: 1. Install the latest drivers, which will have support for Vista. Your drivers are probably ment for XP and below. 2. You could also try with an installation guide for sound and video. Most IM has this function, i.e. MSN Messenger.
