My computer and skype does not recognize my webcam

I have a computer with a built in webcam and skype will not recognize it. I have never used the camera before so I don't know if it needs to be turned on somehow and if so how do you do that? I have tried going into the skype options and video settings but all it says is skype can not find a webcam at all. How do I fix this?

First this you should check your drivers are installed properly or not. first you should know, whether the cam is actually working or not without using skype.If cam is working then there must be some reason of incompatible with your netbook.

Launch the Logitech QuickCam or Webcam software on your computer. Verify that you see yourself Logitech Webcam software window. Close the software window. Sign in to Skype. Click the "Tools" menu and select "Options." Click "Video Settings," check the "Enable Skype Video" and "Start my video automatically when I am in a call" boxes. Select your Logitech QuickCam from the drop-down list. Your webcam should display video in the window. Click "Audio Settings" if your QuickCam has a built-in microphone and select it from the microphone drop-down list. Check the "Let Skype adjust my audio settings" box in "Audio Settings" so Skype recognizes your microphone. Click "Save" to save the options for your audio and video settings.

My aspire 5532 is suppose to have a built in camera on it and i pressed F6 like you are suppose to, to get it to turn on and its not turning on. I will mainly use it for skype during video chats. What can...


I have the same laptop, and i got the same problem with the camera, but see what i found. The built-in camera is located in the same piece of plastic that camera does. Then, if you open/close the laptop so many times, this seems to damage the camera connection and is like it doesnt have any camera. So when i want to use the camera, i simply push with my thumb around the camera, and run the program/chat or anything that i will use the camera. Of course, you first look at the drivers, if correct , then try the other solution i post. And theres no built in microfone. Hope it solve it.

Built in web cam not recognised in flash player of skype


Check that you have updated drivers of your webcam software. More times than not, it's the reason why Skype won't recognize it.
Also, go into Skype and make sure that you have the correct webcam selected under the Video section.

My webcam is really blurry on skype and no one can see me . Help Me!!


all you can do is ensure the lens is clean without removing the bezel and manually adjusting the focus. if its less than two years old its enough reason to have acer fix it if you give them a call.

Built in Webcam won't work with skype


If you use your webcam in different programs it may be still hooked up on one. Try re-booting your webcam software
Mine, I just unplug it and plug it back in.
As yours is built in - expand the imaging folder in Device Manager - Right click on the webcam text and toggle between 'disable' and 'enable' leaving it disabled for a few seconds - long enough to re-boot.
