Hi leahgirl 428...
You will need to download an install Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, in order for your webcam to work, or some other program that will support webcams..."Net Meeting" is another webcam softwear Once you are there you will follow the instructions given to you and you will be able to use your webcam.

How to install web cam


  • Read the installation instructions completely before attempting to install the camera. Although this may seem tedious and unnecessary, it can save time and headaches in the long run.

  • Back up the computer's hard drive just to be safe. This will allow for a speedy recovery should the installation mess up the computer.
  • Install the webcam software. Before deciding to install the disc that came with the camera, check the Internet for an updated version of the software and download that if available.
  • Plug in the webcam. The software should give a prompt at the appropriate time. Cameras are usually installed with a USB cable. If installed correctly, the computer will acknowledge so by popping up a message saying it can see the new device.
  • Download an instant message program if using the web camera for chatting. Some free IM download programs include Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and Apple iChat.

  • Good Luck

    Tell me how to use tha web cam, please


    assuming that it is installed correctly and functional ...the webcam is mainly used for making video calls in instant messaging programs like MSN messenger ...or yahoo messenger ..or skype...etc....this is done by clicking the symbol with the camera on the conversation window.....or ..for programs that allows...by simply initiate the videocall...(ex in yahoo mess.10) or in Msn...
    practically this is all you have to do ....in elder versions..that has not video-call but onl;y voice ...you send a view my webcam invitation when you click on the camera symbol...and the other one has to accept it ...and see you ..
    you can also use the camera to make captures by initiating it from all programs ...AMcap...
    here on the buttons on the top you set the time..the location where the file will be saved...click on preview to see what you capture ...and in some cases it asks for exit file size...but ..this is not the main use for it ..and the quality of the capture is very poor.....

    I cant find my web cam icon where do i look


    Your web cam won't have an icon unless you install a program to view the webcam. Try programs like the latest yahoo messenger, msn messenger etc that have webcam capabilities.
    Also you can some graphic viewers that will allow you to view or take a snapshot from the camera.

    Try http://download.cnet.com/SupervisionCam/3000-13633_4-10034111.html?tag=mncol for a recorder.

    Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


    if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
    you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

    1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

    and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

    either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

    Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


    i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
    i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
    does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
    MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

    laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!

    Web cam


    you can launch the webcam using yahoo messenger,msn messnger,AOL messenger,skype, etc.. in order for other people to see you, you and the other person should be logged in to ex. yahoo messnger or aol messneger..in that way you will have an option on your end to start your webcam and the other party needs to click something like "view webcam" beside your username..
