Webcam not working skype


Have you setup the webcam in the Skype settings?

Ibm pc camera


Hi,
Is the webcam installed properly on the laptop (I suspect that this is the problem)? Is the webcam Logitech? If so, install the driver and software again from the CD that comes with it (you can also download from their site). Made sure the cam works with their software, then run skype and it should work.

I have a compaq presario cq56 115dx and i dont know how to use the camera like on skype i want to make a video call and i cant


This model Compaq laptop does not have a built-in WEB cam.
You can check the specs from this WEB site.
http://www.cnet.com/laptops/compaq-presario-cq56-115dx/4507-3121_7-34498057.html

To use video call with Skype you need to purchase an USB WEBcam, connect the WEBcam into the Compaq laptop's USB port and install the WEBcam driver that came with the WEBcam.
Then configure Skype - select the WEBcam and mic.

Camera is not working as i want to do skype. I thought it would automaticly start working when skype was on, but it doesn't. It is a bit confusing how to solve this problem.


You have to configure Skype to work with your webcam.

  • Open Skype
  • Go to Tools menu
  • Click on Options
  • Click on Video Settings
  • If Skype sees you have a webcam that your system recognises, it will display it there. If not, your computer cannot see the webcam.
If the camera isn't detected, you may need to reinstall the camera driver from the laptop manufacturer's website.

How to activate the webcam


Easiest way to activate the webcam I've found, is not to try hunting for the driver, etc... it's usually pre-installed for laptops or netbooks with built-in cameras, best way is to download applications like Skype with video chat, install the software, and then test using Skype. That usually works.

My camera just stopped working in skype...i have windows 7 ultimate


this may not be worth a try,
Skype has built-in camera diver that usually works with most webcams but when it does not work properly then a manufacturers webcam driver designed for your operating system can usually fix this. in which case if you install a webcam driver, then it will be best to open the camera software before you start your video calls with skype

I dont know how to use my camera of my laptop i want see my family but i cant help me


You will need a program like Skype to communicate PROVIDED they have the same program and version!!

If you do not have that, download / install skype .

Install driver for webcam FIRST before you plug it in, (Wait till program tells you to plug in)

Go into skype properties and options to find the webcam test which will confirmthe camera is working.
