Hi

Check your computer for any programs that may be using your web cam.

For Example Photo Software Video Software

You may need to remove the drives and software for the Web Cam and then reboot and re install the software. This should fix the problem.

Let me know if you need more help.

How can i use de webcam.


Webcams are used for video conferencing or video chat in those applications which need the webcam hardware. Look for programs installed in your PC/laptop. If it has a webcam, it would have a program. Alternatively chat client applications like Yahoo messenger/msn messenger/gtalk have the ability to enable webcam from their interface. You just have to select start my webcam.

Lifeframe webcam on an asus laptop, says camera is used by another program


Don't open two programs that uses webcam, for example: if you have skype application opened with video call you can use the webcam at yahoo messenger. make show application that requires one web cam features like video calling are online opened when needed.
if the is a hidden program that you sure to have close it that is still in process, then open the task manager and click on applications, you will see and end it process there, if the problem persist then restart the computer.

Webcam can be used from the IM application by configuring the options of the IM app.
Should you want to use the webcam to make a video then you can find the name of the app in the Control Panel - Scanners and Cameras.

I Have A Built In Acer Webcam And I Dont Know How To Youse it


If you have installed your webcam driver, you should see an item called "webcam console" in your system tray(next to the system clock). Launch the console by double clicking on it. You can then record video or take pictures using the console. If you don't have the driver installed
If you dont have the driver, you can download it from

Hp Webcam


If your Notebook is installed with Vista, there is no option to start the Webcam directly without using any application.
However, you can try using the HP Webcam drivers which are for XP with which you will get a Preview window to use the webcam without using any application like Messengers etc..:
Download the above mentioned driver from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click once the file is saved to install the drivers.
However, if you are unable to access the webcam using Quickplay application, I recommend you to try reinstalling the application by following the instructions below if the Recovery Partition is available and you are able to use the Recovery Manager application :
Click on Start and then on Control Panel in the window that appears, click on Classic View in the left pane.
Now, among the icons that are displayed, double click on Programs and Features icon and among the list that is displayed, click on HP Quickplay and click on Uninstall button on the top.
Now, follow the instructions available in the link below to reinstall Quickplay using Recovery Manager :

You can also try downloading Cyberlink YouCam application which is provided for all latest Notebooks to access Webcam from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39372.exe

Save the file into the Notebook and double click the file to install the application.
You can find the required instructions to use Cyberlink YouCam application to access the webcam of your notebook from the link below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01414839&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Additionally, you can find the details about YouCam application from the link below :

Hope the information helps...

Webcam


Vista does not have a stand-alone feature for Compaq Presario c700 webcam. You need to have another application to use the webcam. Fortunately, I found an application, YouCam, that allows you to take snapshots (and even videos) using the built-in webcam of the laptop.
