Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Dad has a Compaq Presario with a built in webcam. I have a very nice external webcam for my desktop. On my computer, his picture is jerky and blurry....he says I look clean, clear and smooth. We're using Windows Live Messenger to communicate. Any tweaks I can tell him to try for his end or are the built in webcams just not good. Thanks, Susan Morris

Hi susan...( by the way my surname is Morris to lol ) anyhow...well you are right, web cams on laptops are no way near as good as the external ones and also with laptops they are not as good at handling web related images as well as home pc's, i think the best solution would be to purchase an external web cam and use that, if i may sugest a nice web cam that i personally use on my laptop when i am away it the logitech web-cam 250, this is an excellent web-cam to use for laptops and are very cheap to purchase....hope this helps happy new year

I don't know hot to turn on my built in webcam


Hello Byron,

You can use the built in camera in Compaq Presario PC Notebook by installing software for web cam.

If you are using Win XP then it had a built in webcam viewer, just by double clicking the camera in my computer.

I dont know if i have a web cam on my compaq laptop if i do how do i get to it


Hi.

Your model of laptop does NOT come with a webcam built in, so the only way to use a webcam is to get an external one, there are several on the market that work wonderfully with your laptop.

Most electronic retail stores carry several models, just get one that suits your needs, plug it into the usb jack, install the software for it, and you should be good to go!

Good luck, and have a nice day !

Compaq SR1720NZ to wireless?


i believe the simplest way to do this is to buy a external USB wireless adaptor for your computer. thats saying that your dsl modem has a wireless signal being broadcasted already . if you dont have wireless built into your DSL or Cable modem, you will also need a wireless capable router to send it to your computer...
keep in mind that the wireless external network adapter could easily be used with ANY computer to connect wirelessly, so it's not limmitted to just your current hardware.

Webcam


Vista does not have a stand-alone feature for Compaq Presario c700 webcam. You need to have another application to use the webcam. Fortunately, I found an application, YouCam, that allows you to take snapshots (and even videos) using the built-in webcam of the laptop.
