Question about MSI Wind UmNotebook

My built in web cam was working just fine I use it for Skype and it worked for about 3 weeks and then Skype said it did not support it. But it did before and thats not the only problem, my web cam doesnt work at all now. it wont turn on when i press fn + f6 and when i go to the settings theres only a black screen and the light near the lens isnt on and its very confusing. Did Skype mess up my web cam?

Do you have a system installation disk given by your PC notebook manufacturer. If so, use it to re-stabilize any changes happened to your system configuration. In certain cases the notebook manufacturers provide you with 15 days and 30 days trial softwares to try and buy... but as you are talking about an inbuilt cam provided by the manufacturer of the laptop, there is no possibility of any trial drivers loaded. So I believe that the best option would be to do a factory reset using the system installation disk which came along with the PC.

Your web cam works with software. Any video chat programs or web programs will allow your camera to function. Like Yahoo, MSN, Google, Skype, ooVoo... So you would need a installed a computer program that would give you more control. Check with the manufacturer to see what they have that would give you this kind of control. logitech.com if it's a logitech CAM. If the software isn't compatible with the version of windows.. Then the CAM would only work with web based programs (Skype, ooVoo, yahoo......)

On web cam people can see me but I can't see them its saying not connected


it's not your CAMERA it works they see you, it's THEIR camera that isn't working. Have them go to Tools/Options/Video Settings and change it there. If they have a web cam connected to a laptop it's probably trying to use the laptop's built in camera, and if the lid is down you see squat. They'll likely have to go back and reset every time they reconnect the camera because Skype looses track of it and falls back to the default.
