First go to Control Panel, hardware, Devices and look for your webcam. Go through the tabs to make sure it is Enabled. If you don't see your webcam, or you can't click enable, then you will need to reload the software drivers, either from disc or the manufacturer's website. Once you think you have it working you may want to reboot your computer, and then try the free webcam test tool.

Cant find my built in web cam


Hi dean william law

Try using your webcam this way.
Use a IM application like Yahoo messenger,NetMeeting,Skype,etc.
They will have video capabilities that will work with your webcam and allow you to view other webcams.
