How do I take a picture with a webcam

If the webcam came already installed on your computer (i.e., laptop) you will already have the software installed that is assocated with your webcam. Look throught all programs and see if you can find and start some software that seems to relate to video/webcam. Many webcams have a light that will turn on automatically if you happen to stumble on the right software and start the software.

Otherwise, if your camera did not come with your computer, you may have to locate and install BOTH driver and software before doing the above.
Please post back if it helps!

How to turn on webcam

If the iSight webcam is not turning on when opening a program to use it, such as Photo Booth, a simple procedure can possibly fix it. First, shut off your computer. Next, locate the keys Command, Option, P, and R. Restart the computer while holding these keys down. Release the keys once the computer makes it's startup noises and your webcam should be good to go!

HP typically requires you to use RealPlayer to use the webcam on their laptops. Also, try double-clicking on the Computer icon, and then looking in there to see if there's an icon for your webcam. If there is, then double click that to access your webcam. The webcam icon isn't always shown after double-clicking the computer icon in every laptop.
