Question about Computers & Internet
HI, welcome to FixYa.
Which operating system that you use? Have you installed the webcam driver?
I assume you use Windows operating system. If you use Windows XP, you can check you webcam in My Computer right under Scanners and Camera section.
But if you use Windows Vista or Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows 7 doesn't have any abilities to use your webcam directly like WIndows XP does. You need to install a program to check whether your webcam is working or not.
Since these programs are usually sharewares, I recommend you to try Touchless if you are just only checking whether your webcam is working or not (not to take picture or to have a chat, that need different program). The requirement is just you need to install .NET Framework which you can get here:
While "Touchless" you can get here:
Unzip the Touchless.zip the run TouchlessDemo.exe
I hope this can help you. Thanks for visiting FixYa.
