Webcam not working or showing

My webcam isn't working. I have looked at a number of ways to solve the issue by right clicking my computer, going into driver installation and so forth, but to no avail. The laptop is new so maybe I haven't donloaded it or something coz it didn't come with any software. Please help???

Ok, here's the issue I'm having. I have my regular computer in one room. I got a new pc for another room. I was trying to hook up the Belkin wireless router too it, and something isn't working...


the problem is likely you need to load up your computer's wireless manager- for instance, is there an icon that looks like a fan or a staircase? that would be the manager for your connection. At that point you should be able to setup the connection w/ the right wireless key/passcode in the pc and have all the wireless issues resolved (basically you'd be looking for something like Intel Proset, Dell Wireless Utility, or other utility/manager (it will usually have "Wireless Utility" in the name somewhere... makes it easier to find!)

Hi..can you help me cause when i open my magic camera it does not work but before this it work...and when i want to record my own video to youtube it can't?can you solve this problem?i really want to...


Hello!

If you can give me more details, like error messages or so, it would help much solving the issue.
However, try these steps:

1. Start>right click Computer>Manage>Device Manager
2. See if there are any drivers marked in yellow (triangle and exclamation mark), and if yes, right click on it and Uninstall. Then go to top menu and mouse over icons until you find "Check/Scan for hardware changes", click on it and wait-the driver will be automatically installed.
3. Restart your computer and try if the camera works.

In case the steps do not solve your issue, please contact me again and provide following:
1. Operating System (Start>right click Computer>Properties)
2. Webcam model and manufacturer
3. Error code or message you get when try to use your camera.

Regards!

My webcam isnt working, can u help me?


sounds like a driver issue, if you are using windows go to start on my computer right click and choose properties, choose the hardware tab and click on device manager, look in the camera section and see if your camera is listed, if it is not then also look for an unknown device, with a ? thru it. if this is the case you have a missing driver, go to your manufacture website and go to drivers and support and locate your product model number and download and install the webcam drivers. that should fix it.
hope this helps. :)

go to
Start - Control Panel - Classic view - Administrative tools - Computer Management - Device Manager
and look to see if it shows up on the right, if you see "unknown devices" regarding ur webcam and it's not showing, guess what...it doesn't recogize it.
So, simply go download the driver for it (find it on google or on motherboard site), then go to device manager, and uninstall the device, or simply restart the computer, and it should auto attempt to install it. :) install the drivers properly and u will find it working.

1. you can get your drivers .
just go to ur webcam manufacturing site, click on download section click on drivers, enter its model number and download the camera drivers .
2. If you don't know the webcam drivers cd then connect to internet, uninstall all the old webcam drivers if any. then when pop up window says that new hard driver is found then click it and it will automatically install drivers from net

3. If you want to know about your webcam drivers, then go to desktop
a. right click on my_computer,

b.then select properties, in properties tab click on the HARDWARE tab,

c.then click on the device manager tab, then select and expand the drivers like sound or video which you want to know.

d. right click on the selected sound or display drivers and select its properties.

go into your device manager and remove your microphone from the list. then shut your pc off and turn back on. then go to device manager and see if it shows back in the list. then right click and choose update driver. when asked, choose to update from the web. install the drivers and restart the pc. this should solve any issues with the microphone. if it doesnt, try updating your sound card drivers. get them from the web also.

Hp webcam problem with live messenger


Had the same problem... Here's how I solved the problem...
But if you do this be careful... I take no responsibility...Just trying to help...
Go to your firewall settings & make sure Port number 443 Tcp & Udp are open... This gives access to secure Websites...
If you do not know how to open ports then get someone to help you
or do some reading in the internet on how to do it...
Fot windows xp just open the firewall & click exceptions then click port..
now just type in whatever name you want to call it then type in 443 as the port number & check tcp & click ok...Now go back again & do the same except this time check Udp.. After opening port 443 if it should by some chance be closed,try to use the webcam with messenger... Even if it does now work I also recommend that you go here & follow those instructions as well... http://messenger-support.spaces.live.com/blog/
Those instructions start off by helping with sign in problems but as you scroll further down the page you will find many other tips and tricks that should help... I hope this will help to solve your webcam issues.
