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)
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.
Under programs, there is a dell web cam program,there is also a dell web cam help file,if you install skype (a free web cam communication program) it will automatically turn on and off the web cam as the program starts and exits.there are also other dell web cam programs that will let you adjust ,and take snap shots called web cam console and dell webcam manager
if the web cam is bult into the laptop/pc it will have a program to use it, or it will start atomaticly on a program like skype or msn. If it is a web cam you plug in via usb port it will start up when you press video call on msn skype or eney program that uses web cames
