If the issue is with the internal webcam, it might be due to corrupted webcam drivers or incorrect webcam settings.

Hello gkml15
the following is a link for a yahoo webcam compatibility test.
If your webcam is compatible, please update your web cams software to the newest version.
Also it may just be that you need to have directx installed on to your computer Please make sure that your computer matches the requirements before installing.

I hav an hp laptop , i know it has a webcam on it but how do i get it working?

hello princess0074

You most likely have to connect to a website or service that enables and requires a webcam like skype, yahoo messenger, windows live messenger etc.

Also if that doesnt work then you should try looking for your webcam in the start menu and see if you can activate it through there by right clicking and opening it.

Thanks for your time!

I have a laptop with a built in webcam but do not know how to access it. Can you help?

Try to run Cyberlink Cam Pro or any messaging applications like Yahoo and MSN Messenger or Skype and activate webcam under preferences or start a video chat/call to access your webcam.

What sites can I use for my webcam that are compatible with mikomi DC-7130. I would have liked Skype but can't get it to work. Easy language please ! I'm completely computer illiterate


You can use your webcam with every site if you set up it correctly in the program that you will use such as skype, yahoo messenger, msn messenger etc.

First of all you must install it correctly to your PC.

And then set up it in the program that you used. You say that you would like to work in skype. You can set it up in skype as I described below:

Run skype and log in.

In the top skype menu, select "Tools" and "Options".

In the new window, click on the "Audio settings" and see the microphone and audio is set up as your video/audio card in your PC. If not set up it. I mean you must see the name of your PC2's audio/video card in there not the name of webcam.

Click on the "Video settings" on the left menu. Set up the person list that you want to let you see in skype. You can select only the person who is in your friend list can see you.

Then test it.

I hope it helps.

Why doesnt my computer webcam work on yahoo messenger?

Does it work in other chat applications (MSN, Skype)?

If you have a TV tuner card in the PC, try disabling that, as it is known to cause such problems with the Yahoo webcam detection.

Brand new HP computer with Integrated Webcam Not working

Do you have the USB cable connection from the monitor hooked up to your computer? If so, are your USB ports configured properly?
Your computer should alert you with an audible tone indication whenever you connect or disconnect the webcam USB cable. If it is not doing this, The webcam itself may be defective.
