I hav an hp laptop , i know it has a webcam on it but how do i get it working?


hello princess0074

You most likely have to connect to a website or service that enables and requires a webcam like skype, yahoo messenger, windows live messenger etc.

Also if that doesnt work then you should try looking for your webcam in the start menu and see if you can activate it through there by right clicking and opening it.

Thanks for your time!

check if only yahoo messenger is having problems with your webcam. go to "start menu" ,"control panel" then "scanners and cameras" open you webcam there and check if it is working by taking pictures. if ok try reinstalling yahoo messenger maybe problem with the program. if no your webcam have a problem call the manufacturer.

My dell inspiron 1525 webcam wont work with yahoo messenger


This is happening because the Dell webcam central is accessing the webcam at the same time as yahoo messenger. Click on start and click on Run(XP), Type MSCONFIG in start search (Vista) and you'll get the system configuration utility. Open it and go to the startup tab. Uncheck anything related to Dell webcam. Click on Apply and OK and restart the computer. If yahoo messenger shows a black screen uninstall Yahoo messenger and reinstall with the more recent version.

Obi cam wont work in messenger


If you see a black screen when broadcasting your webcam:
There may not be enough light in the room. If so, illuminate the room appropriately.
Your camera may not be functioning properly. Try your camera with the manufacturer's software.
The correct camera may not be selected by Yahoo! Messenger. To change your camera source:
1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Start My Webcam."
2. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences."
3. Click the "Webcam" category.
4. Click the "Camera Source" button.
5. Click the pull-down menu and select the desired camera.
6. Click the "OK" button.
If you see a black screen when viewing a friend's webcam:
Check the status message at the bottom of your viewer window. If it says "Stopped," the person broadcasting has stopped broadcasting images. Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again.
If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.

HP WEBCAM DOESN'T WORK WITH INSTANT MESSENGER


Are you using Flash Player on MSN? This sounds like you need to turn on access from the flash player setting menu. This sounds like another issue with the latest update of flash player. Also, you might try 'unchecking' the box for 'use hardware acceleration' in the flash player settings.
