I have a compaq presario cq56 115dx and i dont know how to use the camera like on skype i want to make a video call and i cant


This model Compaq laptop does not have a built-in WEB cam.
You can check the specs from this WEB site.
http://www.cnet.com/laptops/compaq-presario-cq56-115dx/4507-3121_7-34498057.html

To use video call with Skype you need to purchase an USB WEBcam, connect the WEBcam into the Compaq laptop's USB port and install the WEBcam driver that came with the WEBcam.
Then configure Skype - select the WEBcam and mic.

I DONT KNOW HOW TO TURN ON THE BUILT IN WEBCAM ON MY COMPAQ PRESARIO CQ56


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

The universal way to turn the webcam on all laptop computers, regardless of the brand and model is by pressing Fn and F5.
  1. Hold Fn down (usually on the left side of the SPACE BAR on the keyboard)
  2. Press F5
  3. Release both keys
You should see the webcam's icon on the lower right hand side. The webcam's icon with a slash on it states that the webcam is OFF. The icon without a slash means that the webcam is ENABLED.

Thank you for Choosing FixYa! Should you have any questions please feel free to post it here and click YES to vote for me. Have a good one!

I have a Compaq Presario F700, how can I activate s-video out?


On most laptops it a simple case of pressing two buttons together, usually th 'FN' or 'Function' Key and 'F5' (press fn first, hold down then press f5) Yours maybe slightly different and use a different F key ie F3.
