    The webcam is ok if i connect to other laptop or PC. Only at my laptop if i try to connect it did not take any action. There is a sound. (plug in sound) but nothing appeared. Do i need to install any software for that. My main purpose using the webcam is for Skype calls.

If you have a plug and play OS it should have detected the web cam then asked for drivers. try connecting the cam to other PC and lap top they detect the cam it may be a hardware problem if not the web cam maybe defective.

I have a compaq presario cq56 115dx and i dont know how to use the camera like on skype i want to make a video call and i cant


This model Compaq laptop does not have a built-in WEB cam.
You can check the specs from this WEB site.
http://www.cnet.com/laptops/compaq-presario-cq56-115dx/4507-3121_7-34498057.html

To use video call with Skype you need to purchase an USB WEBcam, connect the WEBcam into the Compaq laptop's USB port and install the WEBcam driver that came with the WEBcam.
Then configure Skype - select the WEBcam and mic.

Can I use Compaq Presario CQ62-225nr for skype


yes you can. any pc can use skype as long as you are running windows xp and above. If your particular model doesnt have a web cam you can still use skype as a messenger! and buy a cheap 20 dollar webcam from walmart and still use it! Hope this helps!

My campaq presario c70 laptop's inbuild webcam is not working.... i cant detect its driver.. i put windows 7 os in my laptop.... please any one can help me???????? thank u very much......


If you were to log on to the hp.com web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!


If drivers for the web cam are not shown. they are possibly not available and an external web cam may be needed or a return to your original OS will be needed.

I hope this helps.

hi susan...( by the way my surname is Morris to lol ) anyhow...well you are right, web cams on laptops are no way near as good as the external ones and also with laptops they are not as good at handling web related images as well as home pc's, i think the best solution would be to purchase an external web cam and use that, if i may sugest a nice web cam that i personally use on my laptop when i am away it the logitech web-cam 250, this is an excellent web-cam to use for laptops and are very cheap to purchase....hope this helps happy new year
