I dont know how to turn on my bilt in webcam. can u tell me how?


Hi there, Normally a webcam only turns on when there is an application that needs it. My first suggestion would be to ensure that you have a driver for the webcam. If you have not uninstalled anything since you bought the laptop, then you shouldn't have to worry. This site (http://www.cameroid.com/snap.php) will let you take pictures with your webcam. Applications like Skype and Windows Live Messenger will also let you turn on your webcam. If you need any more help, let me know!

I am having acer laptop with webcam,and i want to take pictures using the camera..please explain


In your start menu under all programs, is there a program called acer crystal eye or crystal eye? this is the webcam software. if you dont have it go here to download: http://download.cnet.com/Acer-Crystal-Eye-webcam/3000-2108_4-188685.html


You can also go to sites like cameroid.com to take pictures with your webcam without downloading anything,
Hope this helps!

I got a new computer and i have a d-link dsb-c320 webcam but dont have the installation cd to re-install it on my new pc. what can i do to get it installed and workinng?


Making this d-link dsb-c320 webcam work with your new computer is easy! First, you must have an internet connection for you to download the required driver in order for the webcam to work. You may click the link below which will directly bring you to the download page :

http://download.driverguide.com/driver/DSB-C320/D-Link/d1406224.html

After downloading it, all you have to do is to go to the folder where it was downloaded and open the file, which will lead you to the step by step installation process. I highly recommend that you restart your computer after the installation.

Enjoy using your webcam and Thank you for using Fixya.

My web cam always worked without a problem and now when i plug it in to the USB drive it doesn't even register that it is hooked up....help!


There isn't really anything about a webcam that you can 'fix' - either it works, or it doesn't. However, before throwing it out, I would definitely try it in a different computer first.

Basic webcams work with Windows XP and up with no need for special software; if you plug one in, it should be detected and appear in "My Computer".

Trying the webcam in another computer will cover the possibility that your USB port has failed, or that the power has been turned off.

Oh... one last faint possibility: did you just add some new USB device? If there's a power limitation, your computer may have refused to spare some milliamps for the camera. Try unplugging any USB device you don't need, for a test run, just to be sure.

Can i use the stylus verve as a webcam?


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

I'm sorry but you can't use that camera as a webcam for 3 reasons.
1) That camera will not function (as a camera) while it's connected to a computer.
2) There is no function on the camera to stream video.
3) The camera goes into sleep mode after 3 minutes (by default). It does that to save batteries.
Again. I'm sorry. Good webcams average between $20. to $50. usd and they are made to work 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You should just buy one.

Even though the solution was not what you wanted, don't let it stop you from rating it a fixya. I would appreciate it. Let me know if I can help you with anything else, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

With the camera focus away from press the left curved button to record video. To use as a webcam hook the usb cable to your computer, and open the software that came with your computer. Press that same button and in the software you will see the webcam. Or you can use your chat program to access the webcam.
