You need to install the SOFTWARE that came with the camera before you hook the camera up to your PC. If you hooked the camera up first you will need to UNINSTALL it and then run the software and reattach the camera.
Follow the promts in the software to set up the system, but keep in mind that A LOT of earlier cameras and especially Dynex have issues with XP and other Newer Systems.
If you have a webcam installed on a Laptop then you should have a readme file availble for setup.

How do i turn on my compaq built in webcam?


Click on the start menu, and type webcam, there should be a webcam option that comes up. If not, click start, and search for something with webcam in it, like the Program Youcam. If not, try going to computer and see if there is a webcam option you can click on there. Or, you can go to google and type in manycam and download it for free. That will also start your webcam.

I have an Amcap webcam and cannot get it to work with Skype. I can see and hear my friend but she can only hear me? Any suggestions before I buy another?


Do not be in a hurry to buy another webcam. Firstly, go to Control Panel->Add Remove programs. Here you will find your camera listed. If not then install the webcam and then find it here. Start Skype and go to Tools->Options->Video. Here specify your webcam as the default camera and save. Now when you start to talk to anyone you will get 2 choices. Call and Video Call. If you start Video Call your camera will take about 30 seconds to start and commence sending your live video, whether the other part has a webcam or not.
If there is no Webcam displayed in Add Remove Programs then you must first install the drivers without the webcam attached to the PC. reboot and then attach the webcam. Allow Windows to detect the camera and load its drivers. You will get a msg in the right bottom corner of the screen saying "Your new HW has been installed and it is ready to be used.". Now configure Skype as above and start video Calling.

I have an HP Pavilion dv2000 and i dont know how to open webcam.


I have an HP Laptop with the webcam. Here is info on it.

There should be an icon on the desktop that you can double click to activate it. Then if it is activated the blue light will go on next to the webcam. If there is no icon do the following:

If the webcam icon is not on the desktop, click Start , click All Programs , select HP Pavilion Webcam to open the webcam from the Windows Start menu.
    • Select HP Pavilion Webcam Demo for a demonstration of the features.
    • Select HP Pavilion Webcam to open the webcam window and display an image from the webcam
  1. If the webcam icon is not on the desktop or on the Windows Start menu, click Start , and My Computer to open the My Computer window. The webcam should be listed under the Scanner and Cameras heading. Double click on the icon to open the webcam window and display an image from the webcam.
  2. If the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam is either disabled or the drivers are not installed.
Enable the webcam If the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam may be disabled. To enable the webcam, do the following actions.
  1. Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then select Properties .
  2. On the My Computer properties window, click on the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager .
  3. Click on the plus ( + ) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.
  4. If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the c00678428.gif icon, the webcam is disabled. To enable the webcam, right-click the HP WebCam 1000 icon and click Enable . The webcam icon should now display on the Desktop or the My Computer window.
  5. If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, you should install the original webcam drivers.
If you need the drivers see below.
  1. Install the original webcam drivers If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, do the following activities to install the original webcam drivers using the HP System Recovery.
    1. Click Start , click All Programs , click System Recovery , and then click Application and Driver Recovery .
    2. On the Application and Driver Recovery window, select Driver installation and click Next .
    3. Select HP Pavilion Webcam from the list, and click Install .
    4. When prompted that the installation is complete, click OK .
    5. Allow the PC to restart and test the operation of the webcam.
    When the webcam is operating, visit to the HP web site to look for and install the latest updated webcam drivers. If the quality of the image is not acceptable, you can perform a functional diagnostic test of the webcam.

If you go to your start menu, look for a programme called 'acer crystal eye webcam' and that will bring up your webcam programme.
It is not in the folder 'Acer crystal eye webcam' though, just 'Crystal eye webcam'.

start \ all programmes \ Crystal Eye Webcam \ Crystal Eye Webcam.

If this proves fruitless, type webcam into the search option at the bottom of your start menu and look for the crystal eye webcam.

If these do not work, then look in your control panel to make sure it is installed. If not, contact company, they have a good customer service standard (from my experience)
