    I'm confused as to actually activating my webcam that I just purchased (HP Delux Webcam) I ran the software that came with that cam and also downloaded the yahoo software. Where do I go from here

    It doesn't come with instructions and I have no idea what to do. When I plug it into the USB Port, the blue light comes on but when I downloaded the software and broadcasted my webcam, the only thing that showed was the "Magic-i" logo.

Gmail does not support video as far as I know. To chat with your friend over Yahoo you need to download the Yahoo Instant Messenger software. Others use the Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger. Skype is another popular Instand Messenger program.

    If you run the HP webcam software to you see an image?

    If you downloaded the Yahoo messenger, have you installed it? Did you sign up for a Yahoo account?

The camera in my HP ProBook 4510s doesnt work. I have tried to re install the driver for the camera on Hp's website but it says "Setup has determined that your configuration does not support any...

What I could recon from your question is that your webcam driver is not installed in your PC.

Please be informed that any Driver software depends upon the hardware make and Operating System. So, you need to know all these information's to do get going.

Please find the Driver software's of your webcam inside the installation disk provided with the System at the time of purchase. In case if you do not posses the same then you need to download the driver software from the web. As you have not mentioned your Operating System you are using, I am unable to give you the direct download link. However you can download the same by visiting the website of the company that manufactured the PC.

Even here you need to be careful to download the correct software for your PC. You need to be exact with the Webcam Model number and the OS that you are using.

After you have downloaded the driver, to install Double click on the driver setup.exe file and go on clicking 'Next' until you get the 'Finish' option and restart the PC.

Windows 7 on my CQ41-208AU compaq - webcam problem

Goto your google mail. Then select options there. Under the "chat" tab, click on + symbol which shows you the options to verify the voice and video settings. If it prompts you to install Adobe flash player or Google voice and video plugin, go for it and complete the installation. Now if you could see your webcam video there in Gmail Chat settings window, then it denotes that the driver for your webcam got installed already.
So if you need to cature pictures using webcam, just driver wont help. you need to install some utility software as well for that after the driver installation is done. Please download a such utility from here
I hoep this is helpdul to you.
Thanks for using fixya

Use on laptop creates noise & frozen picture 4 person talking to

Its not due to the laptop, the other person is viewing you on the internet (Yahoo/Msn etc) so the Video might get frozen sometimes or may be a lot many times depending on the bandwidth or the server load.

The voice is due to the microphone you are using, you can use microphone with noise reduction technology with some noise reduction utility.

My PC (running Vista) does not see my HP Webcam Deluxe. Why?

Fully, uninstall your drivers from Device Manager...then connect to internet and let the Vista detect the drivers automatically. Normally this is caused by Windows updates.

Please vote, thanks!

Webcam trouble

Try The drivers and software is available. I have that series of laptop. Just type in your exact model number in the support search form. It should be the first result.

If you are referring to the free camera software that comes with your computer (powerdirector) if you did a restore of your drive it should be in the c:\swsetup\cyberdvd directory. Run the setup.exe file.

If you didn't do a restore then your gonna be out of luck. You can purchase a restore disk from HP for $15.00 or so.
