You need to use a program like messenger to share your webcam. both need to have the same version preferably, then just start sharing your webcam. If the other person can not see you, ask them if they can see anyone elses webcam, if they can,t its a problem at their end. If they can see other users then its a problem at your end, most likely a firewall or similar is blocking the connection.

    do you have a firewall installed on the computer? or do you have a router in the house?

  • Ekse Oct 12, 2010

    do you have any other antivirus, security or firewall programs on the computer? do you have the latest version of windows live messenger?

    if you have a older version than the other person that might also cause it.

  • Ekse Oct 12, 2010

    you might have a firewall on your modem or router that might be blocking the messenger ports.

  • Ekse Oct 12, 2010

    to narrow down the problem, please try sharing your webcam on messenger with as many people as possible one at a time, and see if someone is able to get your picture out of it. If no one is able to get your picture, then its most likely still a firewall problem on your internet modem or router.

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working

Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

Resolution change on my lap top screen when I load my webcam

I had this problem on my PC and I tried everything from updating drivers to re installing the software and updating my graphics card but nothing seemed to work.
And then as a last resort I right clicked on the icon on my desktop and chose properties and clicked on the Compatability tab and unchecked on display settings Run in 640x480 screen resolution.
This worked and did not affect the webcam in anyway.
