SOURCE: The webcam is not working

Hi. I suggest you try to press and hold the Function(Fn) button then press the Escape(Esc) button on your keyboard to enable or disable your webcam, when you press the Fn+Esc key it will show you a confirmation if your webcam is ON or OFF, after that try using it again with skype. Hope This Helps

SOURCE: Hey my webcam is not

It sounds as if the drivers were uninstalled or became corrupted in some way.
The problem is that the drivers for this webcam are not downloaded separately but are native to Windows 7.

Try this solution and post back if it worked or not. If it doesn't work, I will attempt to help you further.

1. Turn on the webcam via the FN+F6 keys.

2. Press Win+R to open the Run command.

3. Type "devmgmt.msc into the dialog box and press enter to open Device Manager.

4. Find the extra "USB Composite Device" and right click on it.

5. Select "Update Driver" and click "Search automatically for updated driver software".

Windows should find the appropriate driver and install it. If it doesn't, then post back here and I will help you further.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Unable to detect webcam on aa Toshiba laaptop while using skype

Make sure the WEBcam driver is installed.
When the WEBcam works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the installed WEBcam - Save the settings.

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.

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.

How can i take photo in my vostro 1015 notebook. Even i am not able to find the shortcut icon for my web cam. when i am using skype, oovoo, i can able to access my wbcam. I want to know how to access...

Normally there would be software provided by laptop manufacturer to take still pictures on the computer. However, if your webcam is detected in Windows (I am guessing you are running Windows 7 ) you may try the steps below and check if you can capture still photos.
  1. Click on Start.
  2. Click on Control panel.
  3. Select Device and printers.
  4. If your Webcam is listed there click on it and check you can see the cam working.
  5. Also check for the option to capture still photo.

Logitech webcam that doesn't want to work with skype now

I experienced the same symptom (Skype would load with WinXP but NOT recoginize my HP Elite webcam and its ArcSoft drivers). I noticed that I could 'cure' the problem by manually stopping Skype after WinXP loaded (right click on the Skype task and Quit). Then, when Skype has stopped running and Windows is still up, manually restart Skype.

It appeared that the problem was one of task startup order. My system runs McAfee's Secuity Suite and that takes a FULL 2.5 minutes to activate after the initial Windows desktop appears.

So, for grins, I searched for a freeware startup manager (used WinPatrol) and installed it. I assigned the Skype startup task to the delayed column and set the delay to 2.5 minutes so Skype wouldn't try to load before the McAfee firewall was up and running. That cured the problem of Skype starting without seeing a webcam!

I played with the delay and found even WinPatrol's minimum delay (10-30 seconds) also provided relief...
