I have a HP Pavilion dv4 and it has a built in webcam and can't figure out how to turn it on

You have to open the webcam software to activate or startthe webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. Thewebcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs thensearch for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam mightbe inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search thefolders for it. Some manufacturers have something like EntertainmentExperience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as thedvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch itthen click on the webcam or camera icon.

Try using ManyCamYoucan always download Manycam and install it. Go to and inthe search box type: "" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on theleft and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type"Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit thesearch mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one thatsays ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sureyou remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. Youonly want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where yourwebcam software is.

I sent my computer to get fixed, but when i got it back my webcam wasnt working. i dont know if im supposed to install it myself, or take it back? my laptop is Acer Notebook Aspire 6930 Crystal Eye. Help?

You need to install a new driver for the webcam.
Just go to the laptop's manufacturer site or if you have the cd, and download the webcam driver, unzip it afterwards.
Hope that helped you out!

How do I turn on the webcam on my Compaq laptop? When I got it, it said there was no webcam detected,but there is supposed to be an inbuilt webcam.

To Verify if really the camera is there in the laptop please right click on the my computer icon go to manage and check in the dvice manager the usb camera device is showing up if yes there is a program installed if you have not formated the system and you can check for it also when you open gtalk or any chat program and you have the cam installed the camera icon beside the user name will show green
and you can see also it should be visible in the top center of your laptop screen.

I have a gateway laptop with built in webcam but can't figure out how to turn it on. Any suggestions?

try locating it in "All Programs" in Vista.If it is not found in Acessorries or extras,then check whether it is installed in "Control Panel->System->Device Manager".If it is installed,then when you switch on any webcam program or IM,clicking webcam/video chat will switch it ON.
