I have this built in webcam, an AVEO camera STI, and when i try and open the program i get "You have no video capture device." I am running windows vista home premium SP1. I don't know where the drivers are...
I had the same problem and by accident I solved it by pressing a button. Up by my power button there is a group of 4 buttons the first one is i assume for e-mail the next is for internet i think the third is to start my wireless internet and the last one has a P1 above it thats the one that fixed the prob. for me. When i pressed it a pic. of a cam poped up briefly. It was so fast i had to try it again when i did a pic. of a cam with a line through it popped up so I knew I must have stumbled uppon turning it on and off. but now I have a new prob. When i start the cam it runs briefly then stops with a message that there was a prob. and windows searches for a solution and shuts the program down. It says they will notify me of a solution if there is one but i dont know how they can do that without any of my contact info. Anyways I hope this helps you out if you come across a solution to my new prob. please shoot me a e-mail my adress is email@example.com thanks and good luck.

the web camera is used mostly in video calls in instant messaging programs like yahoo messenger or msn messenger ..and the camera starts auto when the video call is clicked on .. Install one these programs and use it to make video calls..depending on what domain of email you use...it is easier to use same email to work with its own domain program ..(also Skype it is a choice ..) other uses for it is to make snap-shoots if you open it in my computer ..it has a icon for camera ..open it and use the link in the right for making photos or the button on the camera .. You can also use the AMcap..program in the start menu to make captures with video and audio ..but I recommend to use windows movie maker cause it is easier to set and you can edit them after ..Just open movie maker and select capture from device and select the device in the list ..

You probably need the driver for it ..or ...you just opened the capture window and no preview is enabled..Open the camera in the computer folder and see if you have image there ..It is a snap shot feature...the main use for the camera is in the instant messaging programs for video calls ..try it and see if it works there..and this way you will now if you have a problem or not .. For video capture i suggest to use windows movie maker instead of the capture program of the camera ..It will be more reliable
