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 access my webcam anytime I want too????


    You have to open the webcam software to activate or startthe webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. Thewebcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs thensearch for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam mightbe inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search thefolders for it. Some manufacturers have something like EntertainmentExperience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as thedvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch itthen click on the webcam or camera icon.

    Try using ManyCamYoucan always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and inthe search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on theleft and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type"Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit thesearch mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one thatsays ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sureyou remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. Youonly want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where yourwebcam software is.

    Where can i find the webcam/


    Hello,

    You normally have software that you can run to start the webcam. Do a search in windows for the word webcam and it should show up for you. You also want to make sure your webcam drivers are up to date. You can do so at the following link,

    Web cam will not install


    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Sonix Webcam detector task. Webcam program installed by the drivers for Sonix-made webcams. This program enables the System Tray webcam icon installed by your webcam drivers to recognize whether your webcam is plugged in or not. At the time of writing, 21-Jun-2007, our tests show that this program has no other purpose. Note : Sonix is an OEM manufacturer. That is, it manufactures webcams for other companies to re-sell under their own brand names and logos. As a result you will find this program installed by the drivers CD for a variety of makes of webcams, such as Argos' own brand, Mikomi, in the UK, LG, MSI, Olidata, etc...


    Thanks
    Good Luck
