    Need the make/model of the camera. Also some information on what is not functioning. Does nothing happen when you plug it in, etc?

Sounds like you need a laptop technician to take a look at it. also i'm not sure what you mean by an "error code telling me my laptop isn't plugged in.." what isn't plugged in?
Good luck,

My webcam will not work

When you go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers, do you see an webcam icon? It probably won't say HP Webcam but more likely "USB Composite Device". If it isn't there, you'll need to install driver software for the webcam to function. If it is there then right click the icon, click on Properties and look at the General and Hardware tabs to make sure you see HP Webcam in there. You may also want to check to see if it states that the "device is working properly".

When i zoom my cam in and out, it became blurder.

On a webcam, you will generally find that they don't have the optical zoom that you would find on a compact digital, or SLR camer. in most cases, the zoom that you have is digital zoom, this just increases the size of parts the image being fed to the computer, and will often become blurred after a certain point. the best advice would be to move closer to the cam, or to buy a camera with higher resolution...generally 5MP should be more than enough.
the other thing you should try first, is to check that the camera isn't out of focus by looking for a ring around the lens, on some models there will be an adjustable focus, if this is the case,rotate the ring until a desirable image is shown.

I have a gear head 1.3 mp sound FX webcam, model #WC785SFX. I tried the video, and all I got back was an error saying ''The camera could be in use by another application.'' I don't have any other...

You can try this. Do you have an install disk with your webcam? Some come with the Bus install but remember that all Bus connections do not necessarily install your driver. (If you have the disk and you installed it yourself, then you can uninstall it and try the install again. I don\'t kn ow if your webcam came wtih any software or not. If it did then you can try to install it without the application (driver only). Most webcams are very easy to install so I find that if it doesn\'t work the first time then I have to uninstall and do lit again.

Do you know if your system is a 32 or 64 bit system. Some hardware (this case the webcam) may not be designed for the 64bit technology and may require an updated driver.

If your webcam came with a disk and you have tried to install it a couple of times but it still isn\'t working, then you may have a corrupted disk so you can go online to the manufacturer and download new driver (if you do this you should keep it in a folder where you can find it in the future).

I hope this will help you resolve this issue.

If it is, you will need to download the latest version of flash player, install it, then restart your browser. If you are using safari, or firefox make sure you have the latest version.

You know how every button has a second funtion...well, i canèt figure out how to get the first function back (question mark..ect..) it keeps typing És...itès happens often,...

If this is a laptop keyboard, there is usually a "function lock" key or a numlock key. Press the "Fn" key and look for one that says "Num Lock" or an icon on one of the keys that looks like the number keypad from a full size keyboard. Or find a key that says "Fn Lock" or something of the sorts.

Hope this helps!

HI my problem is that my crystal eye webcam on my acer aspire 5520 is not working i found this out when i tryed to use it on every time i try to open up the webcam it says camera not found...

Is the camera funtioning "off" the webpage; meaning can you use it via the program or software that you installed or that came with your camera ??? If YES then you must configure your camera on the webpage configurations, and the problem does not lie with your OS or with your hardware. If NO then you most probably have a software or hardware fault or malfunction. Try checking the windows device manager, or see if your camera is installed correctly.
