Afn key and webcam key are not working together therefore can not turn on my webcam, i have an advent laptop with the built in webcam ?? any ideas why ? or what i can do please ?


make sure your webcam is installed and functional first . and to do that ..look for it in all programs on start ..and open the AMcap or whatever program it may be related with the camer a...or just open the camera from my computer folder..It should be present there and be able to take picks..
If it works it means it has the driver and it works ..if it isnt it means tyou need to install it first ..Another thing ..depending of the operation system in use..some of the symbols on the keys might work or not...for some it will only work in certain aplications ..and such ..
Another thing to be cleared ios that the web camera usually it is asociated with a instant messaging program in order to work proper...so ..if you need to check its functionality for sure...try to open it directly from the yahoo messenger or mes messenger or skype ..In all instant messeging software's chat windows...there are buttons specially for inviting the other person to see your web cam ..and clicking it ..will start the camera if it is functional ..If it starts black ..and no imsge displayed..it means you need a driver for it ..and this will be on the driver's cd sold with the device ...or on the suport site of the manufacturer..(select model and os)

If you do not see a Compaq web cam-utility in

, , use The Following Option:

Download the Program you want to talk to your friends with: Windows Live, Skype, MSN, Yahoo, etc.. Install the program of your choice (or the one your friends use) and you will come to a point in the installation where you set up your web-cam.

I've just signed up with Skype and came to test my orbicam and the software opens but the usual view pops up and says web cam not found or not working??


Verify that video capture or any other program is not running since it will lock the cam. If not try reinstalling the drivers.
