Try pressing the button that's located either next to the webcam. Or go to your programs and open it from there.

    Is it a new computer? Or did you get it from somebody else? Also, it should be in the programs, mine is called
    "YouCam!" and it was directly on my desktop when I first got the computer. There's also a button next to the webcam that I can press to use it. If you got the computer from somebody else, they may have deleted the software to run it.

  • cooki3_metho Jan 31, 2010

    Have you deleted software or programs from your computer recently? Because if so, you have have deleted that software by mistake. Other than looking in the the programs for it, there's not much else to do, unless you reinstall the software.

SOURCE: my web cam is built into my laptop but i cant turn it on now

Its either the web cam is broken or that the driver for it is corrupted and now the os has no way of controling or turning on the web cam.

Try this:

Reinstall the web cam driver.

If this does not work, check device manager and see if the webcam is listed.

If the camera's driver is reinstalled and the unit is listed then there is an os issue.

Write back to me with your findings after you have tried all above

How can i turn on my web cam


If there's a built-in utility,

1. Open the start menu
2. Type "cam"
3. If a utility comes up, use it.

If not, then there's no built in program to use the web cam. You can use third-party software like Skype to use the web cam for video chat.

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. http://www.eyespyfx.com/my_webcam_broadcaster.htm
Note, if the web-cam is not a built in web-cam this will work a bit differently.
