Windows Vista and 7 have no built in webcam application like Windows XP did. If you want to use your webcam for anything other than video calls you'll need to download 3rd party software.

I have a laptop computer and i don't know how to activate the cam for my messenger?

There are many messengers one can use on mac,and I am not clear which one you are referring to. I am therefore providing many answers about many ways you can message and videoconference on mac. msn messenger does not have video conferencing for macs.( I also searched for some time to discover this!) You can get msn messenger for mac (the download) but it does not include video chatting!! I am sure of this. There is also a download for Yahoo messenger for mac which includes videoconferencing, However, Skype is great for mac videoconferencing. (My favorite). Gmail also has something to download for videoconferencing also. There is also Ichat for macs and this is the page with info about setting it up, and AIM. And here is a tutorial for ichat and AIM video conferencing: ...... However.... I personally love Skype. Download it at, create user name and password and then invite contacts. To activate the cam go to Skype preferences on the top of the screen, choose video and check off Enable Skype video to see your friends and also check off Start Automatically if you want them to to see you (or you can click the icon for the video after you are on a call with them for them to see you only if you want to be seen on that one call!). If you find this answers your question I would so much appreciate a positive vote!

When I am chatting on Yahoo IM and turn on my internal MacBook webcam, it works for exactly 1 munute and then goes black on the receiving end. Repeatable every time and always exactly 1 minute.


Maybe your internet connection can't handle the amount info being uploaded. ( by this i mean the fact that the cam filming and immediately sending all that over the internet to your chatfriends might be taking just a little bit too much of the upload amount you have.)

maybe it's caused by the Yahoo messenger, or maybe it's just your friends connections that's not heavy enough.

The easiest is to try to deinstall the camera and messenger software, reinstall them and reboot it all...

Hope this is useful, and greetings,

Try using a different messaging system. If you can see that your web cam is on then it is on. The problem is more likely your broadband or the Yahoo system.
Also it's worth checking that when you turn the camera on that another system like iChat is turned off.

Try Skype, it's free and it works.

Have you gone into System Preferences (click on Apple icon, top left of screen) and changed the Energy Saver settings? If the Energy Saver settings are set too low, your Mac will shut down.
