Have older type dell lap top attached roll type web cam how do i take pictures


OS information is always helpful, in windows you should be able to run the executable for VLC player and click on file, then open, then device and see if your camera is listed, this will let you capture images, after that simply a matter of downloading the correct driver for you camera's manufacture and installing it. Linux on the other hand has a base level of hardware that works with imaging, and not much else will, the xsane image app will tell you very quickly if your camera is compatible.

FIRST OF ALL ANY QUESTION RELATED TO WEB CAMS IS THERE A PRICE ASSOCIATED WITH ANSWER?


you need suitable software to record from your webcam, there are many options
for example
Debut Video Capture Software Easy Video Webcam and Screen Recording
or Windows movie maker
you can search for others, but beware some of the free ones install all sorts of unwanted stuff. Free isn't necessarily the best
No price for my answer!

right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp

http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution

note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

this is a free driver solutions

this will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

Dear waynenear,
try to right click on MY COMPUTER and choose PROPERTIES on context menu. Then find the HARDWARE tabs, Select the DEVICE MANAGER, then click on one of the hardware (best is click on the USB symbol) then click the icon of SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES, your webcam should be recognized as hardware with yellow question mark icon, right click on it, then choose update driver (you must connect to internet), then on dialog of add new hardware select yes, then find your webcam driver on the net.

GoodLuck!

Web cam installation


Go into the device manager and search for the driver by the details.

Start >> control panel >> system >> hardware tab >> device manager >> the webcam right click it >> properties >> Details tab, copy that whole line of #'s and letters. Try to search for that or post it here also you may be able to see what the brand is in the device manager.
