How do i use my built in camera on my asus G73SW as, i guess it would be a stand alone camera maybe? i just want to be able to use it to see what it sees and take pictures or video.


Hi larryg12117...

Follow the instructions below to use your webcam
Click on Start then >Control panel>hardware and sound >device manager>imaging devices>web cam....enable it
Another way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messenger,NetMeeting,etc.
They will have video,picture capabilities that will work with your webcam.
You may have a webcam program built in to your computer already, go to search and put in "webcam"

Audio on Dell Webcam Central And voice record isn't working


I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Also .. as a side note .. I disabled the web cam central Live! microphone completely from this window. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.

I cant find my web cam icon where do i look


Your web cam won't have an icon unless you install a program to view the webcam. Try programs like the latest yahoo messenger, msn messenger etc that have webcam capabilities.
Also you can some graphic viewers that will allow you to view or take a snapshot from the camera.

Try http://download.cnet.com/SupervisionCam/3000-13633_4-10034111.html?tag=mncol for a recorder.

Hp web cam


Dear Friend,

Please note that all these builtin webcams normally are bundled with a free software utility. You can find the software in Start, All Programs list.

Once you have found the software that controls your webcam (it will be something like " HP Quickplay" etc.,
Run that software and take still shots/ or record video.
"right click" on the program's menu and see the path of the file.
This will help you in find the location of this installed application.
Go to this location (folder) and if you have taken any images with the Webcam software, you will find them there.

Please dont rate the solution yet if it doesnt solve the problem.
Please contact me if you need any further help.

Regards,
Techno-Geek.

Your questions are less about an issue and more about just how to use the machine. persavere and keep trying different things. Eventually good things will happen. Its how we all had to learn. As for accessing the camera go to start and search the word cam. vistas usually pretty good and will find it for you

Import video is only when you have recorded a video using the webcam in a particular format and not on the fly which is what you are trying to do.

Record what you want using another application and the webcam then import the video into movie maker to edit.

Alternatively, I think you need to to go the options screen and select the default audio device. Go to control pannels and see if its there and then select the webcam as the default device for MS applications.

good luck
