I have lost my CD of web cam how I can install the software


First you must look at the webcam to find the manufacturer. Next you must go to their website which can be found through google or if you know the site name you can go directly. Most manufacturer's sites have an area for software and driver downloads. If the site requires a model number the number should be written on the webcam somewhere or in the user manual.

I have a usb2.0 5.0 megapixel clip on web pc camera. My computer says it does not recognize the hardware. Can I download free software for this no-company named product? My son bought over the internet.


Yes you can download the drivers of your web cam from internet.
After downloading the drivers install them and you are done. After that your computer will not show that error.

Thanks.

I have a Dell 530 S Dell Inspiron. Its Webcam has stopped working. Any solutions


The very first step is of course to check your web cam connection. Most web cams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if your USB cable is properly plugged. For build-in web cams this steps does of course not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in web cam. Also try connecting your web cam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub (if you are using one).

The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.

It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem.
Other devices in Windows XP device manager

If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, Right-click the device, and in the pop up menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.

In case no driver for the web cam can be found, you can try a third party driver finding program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.

If this fails, the next step would be to un install the software that came with your web cam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party un installer.

After un installing the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the web cam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your web cam during the software installation.If your problem is not fixed then you have to buy a new one.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

My web cam does not work when I go to youcam it doesnt recognize or the camera doesnt work. But online the notice I have a camer but it doesnt work


Hi,
Did you have software installed to use the WebCam? You need software to run the WebCam. Install the web cam software in your PC. Look in your program folder to locate webcam software. Then you access the web cam through this software. Your problem must be solved.

Thanks
