Reinstall you webcam drivers doing the following:

Unplug your webcam from your computer.

  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. Insert your webcam's manufacturer installation CD into the CD-ROM drive and follow the installation prompts.
Note: If the setup program doesn't start automatically within a few seconds, you need to manually start the installation process.
To manually start the installation process:
  1. Click Start from the taskbar in the lower-left corner of your computer screen.
  2. Open the Run window and type d:\setup in the text area.
    Note: The "d" indicates the path to your CD-ROM drive. If your CD-ROM drive is located in a different path, you need to replace the "d" with the correct path.
  3. If you've downloaded the most recent software driver from the webcam manufacturer's website, run that installation program now.
    Note: Most webcam manufacturers maintain the latest webcam software drivers on the download or support areas of their website. Just download it and save it to your computer.
  4. Follow the instructions provided by the webcam setup program.
    Note: Plug in your webcam USB cord only when prompted. (This is usually done after rebooting your computer.)

There is no webcam available in Windows Live messenger. In Skype and Windows Messenger the webcam is well availble. What is wrong? It is a new N310 with windows XP. A second installation of windows live...


Tools > Audio and video setup...

Follow the instructions on the setup screen and once its finished, you will find that the webcam should be able to show up.
If it doesn't show the webcam on the other person, tell him to switch his status to busy for 5 seconds and then back, hopefully that should come up on the other persons screen.

If this hasn't work in most cases it should work - You will have to downgrade to Windows Live Messenger 8.5 and hopefully it should work.

If this hasn't work, go to the HP website and search up webcam drivers for your device and then install it on your computer - Hopefully your webcam would work.Download reginout intel partne to fix messenger registry problems

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

Windows live messenger problem


What it is trying to do is install Windows Live Messenger so you can use your camera to communicate eith family and friends. At present you do not have a Messenger Program installed to do so.

What I suggest you do is download Skype which is FREE and leTs you connect to several or more family members and talk and view their picture.

Go to this site and download and install the Skype program.
http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/
You will have to pick an ID, After you get it setup, you will have to go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and setup the AUDIO SETTING and then the VIDEO SETTINGS. Then you will be able to add people to your contact list and call them and use your VIDEO Camera to see them.
If I can be of further assistance to you I will be pleased to assist uyou to get it all working.
Hope this is of some help . Bud

When i am on msn and want to put on webcam a message appears in a conversation saying Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202)


This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:

1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.

2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.

Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.

You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:

Windows Live Messenger 8.1:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en

it depend on the webcam software if it is available or not

if it is available then you can go to c:\program files\{the webcam program name}

if its not available then it will need a program to use something like (yahoo messenger or msn messenger).
