Frist let me say i donot have any more money i just purphase this webcam with the money i had this easycam tm 98063 will not work on my laptop so can you please help me my window is 7window


Hi sexydaisy196,

I will try and help you but unfortunately 'will not work on my laptop' could mean lots of different things from installation problems to viewing problems so I will cover both for you.

Firstly I am going to go over installation in case your problem is installation then I'll move on to video capture which is how you will see the images that your webcam captures..

INSTALLATION
To install your camera, if Windows 7 does not recognize the camera then you will need to find an appropriate driver. To do this you could try these steps.

1. With the Webcam plugged in, try and do a manual Windows Update. By doing this windows may find the driver for your camera and install it for you.

2. If Windows update didn't find the driver then the following link will take you to a website that I think has the driver you need. Notice it also has a pdf you can download so you can get the original instruction manual.

The link is:

Video Capture
To see anything from your webcam you are going to need an application that captures video images. As you have Windows 7 and if you haven't done already, you can download Windows Live Essentials. Included in this package is Messenger and Windows Movie Maker. Messenger enables you to use your Webcam for Video Chat and Windows Movie Maker has a Webcam Capture button so that you can make a movie using your webcam.
To get Windows Live Essentials just follow the link below.

I hope this has been of help for you.

What does no video capture hardware mean


It means that you don't have any webcam or video devices installed on your computer. If you have the device, you need to install the driver.

Webcam Tools Don't Work


I apologize ahead of time for using all capital letters at times in my response, I use the all caps as a reminder only (not as condescending emphasis). If this response is difficult to understand, please let me know and we can hammer this thing out. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate -- I really enjoy helping...

The solution to your problem is this:

* You are talking about the little 'camera' icon on the taskbar (indicating that it is currently running.)

A) That application you see on the taskbar is ONLY the motor and picture quality/zoom control application, not the actual viewing application itself.

B) So, when you open up a viewer (application that "captures" video), the controller application (the app that opened up for only a brief moment) will AUTOMATICALLY POP ITSELF UP ON YOUR SCREEN and is then ready for manual and auto tracking.

* The way that you would use your tracking and zoom functions through this control is by using VIRTUALLY ANY video capture device program.

** The most popular and widely used application that comes with most GearHead Webcams is "AMcap.EXE".

*** Goto Start, Programs, USB2.0 Motor.... -> and select AMcap. (or any other NON-:LOGITECH video capture software) ==> NON-LOGITECH NOTE: logitech software only works with logitech hardware.

**** BE SURE TO SELECT YOUR MOTION TRACKING CAM IN THE INPUT DEVICES MENU WITHIN ANY APPLICATION YOU DECIDE TO USE.

Problem in recording a video capture using A4


Look into the CD that came with the camera. If it autoruns then install the other applications other the driver. If it does not autorun then Use Windows Explorer to look into the cd details and look for folders like APPLICATION OR SOFTWARE, then run the software or application.
