Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

I cant find my web camera


click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp

click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7


software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here are a few you could try although i could not find one for windows 7


Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

My wireless mouse is working fine,but my wireless keyboard is not. I tried pushing the connect button on the back but it didn't help.


Every device has a piece of software called driver. Without driver no hardware can function as desired. Therefore, go to device manager and see whether the wireless keyboard driver is functional. If it is not then it will show up with a yellow question mark. Then insert the driver disk into the drive and right click on the yellow question mark and select upgrade driver and locate the driver disk and install it. To go to device manager do the following:
right click on the My Computer icon and select Manage option.

I cannot get the print screen function to work. I have no FN button or FN lock button to which everyone is referring. I have 3 different keyboards and none have these buttons. I have a Microsoft...


I don't think that the print screen key actually sends the current screen to the printer to print out. It used to do this way back when. What it does do though is capture the screen, which you can then paste into something like MS Paint or Photoshop or even MS Word. If you press just the "Print Screen" key on it's own, no function keys or shift or anything else, it will capture the entire screen. If you hold down the "Alt" key then press the "Print Screen" key, it will capture whatever window you have in focus at that point. So to capture just an error box message for example, you click in it with the mouse to make sure it's the active window (not grayed out title bar) then hold "Alt" press "Print Screen" then release the "Alt" key. You can then paste that into an image or word document by right clicking the mouse and selecting paste, or by holding down the "Ctrl" key and pressing V.

I hope this is what you were wanting to figure out when you were talking about the print screen key, and hopefully this will have helped you and cleared up a few things. :-)

I dont have a installer of a4tech webcam?


Copy this site and paste it in your web browser, then when you get on the site, select your product and download your driver for your webcam.

http://www.a4tech.com/ennew/downloads.asp

Use the quick product locator then select "Web Cameras"
Then under "Downloads," in the drop down, "Select"
the model number.
Also when it asks you for your Windows Operating System, be sure to select the right one.

Then after completing the download do this.
Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera
to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to
broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi, You may want to verify that the autoswitchoff (Allow the computer to turn off this device...) is disabled or grayed out; right click on my computer, click on Properties, click on the Hardware tab, click on the Device Manager button, expand your Mice and other pointing devices, right click on your mouse, click on Properties, click on the Power Management tab. You can also try updating the drivers. You can also do this on the USB Root Hub if your mouse is USB connected. Hope this works for you and post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
