Why won't the camera on my Gateway ZX4971G-UW20P be recognized by skype?


It might be your camera is not on the Skype support list.
What make and model laptop, with what version of Windows?
What version of Skype are you running? You can get the Skype version at Help > About Skype.
Have you tried going to Tools > Options > Video Settings? If you click on the down arrow next to the Select Webcam selection, is your camera not listed?
In Device Manager, is your camera listed under Imaging Devices?

Hi.
Can you please post the model of your acer laptop. An usually you need another program to use your webcam, like skype. live msn etc... if the drivers of your cam are installed in our laptop you must be able to use it.

I don't know how to access my webcam


Hello:
For the majority of webcam uses, you would use a separate program that accesses the webcam. Examples include: If you only want to record videos and take pictures, you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. You can download it at http://explore.live.com/windows-live-movie-maker?os=other

How to work webcam on acer e machine E627? i can see myself but how do i talk to people?


Dear, you can talk to people via internet by using any of software e.g Yahoo messenger, Skype, Gtalk. etc. If you are chatting with friends using any of these software , there will be a option of "call person on Webcam". Clicking on that you will be able to see each other but make sure your friend has webcam too on this PC/Laptop.

cheers

I can't work out how to activate my inbuilt microphone on my acer travelmate 6292 laptop to use on skype.


The easiest way to find out is go into add/remove programs in the control panel (or look in some listing of all the programs on the computer). See if there is any software related to the mic. If not, contact the manufacturer and ask them if there is supposed to be software or a driver. If there is a driver that you need, They can tell you where to find it. If not, post again.
