It depends on the webcam software you have installed to run your webcam, or if it it even installed.
The device manager pronounced the webcam working well because the webcam is properly installed.
But is the cam software also installed? You have to search for it. It might be a little difficult because you dont know what you are searching for. But here's a clue:
Most webcam software have the term 'CAM' attached to their names eg, YouCam, ManyCam, TinCam, YawCam, and so on.
So simply typing the word 'cam' in your search bar could take you to the location, you can then create a shortcut of it, and launch it at will.

If you do not see any 'cam' related software, you woud have to manually scroll through your installed programs list for any webcam program , but usually, if you see it, you should know because it is meant to have an eye-like icon.
If in all, you confirm that it is not installed, then you have to get one and install it. You could download.

Hope that helped?
Take care.

Tell me how to activate the camera ,because i can see people am talking to,but they cant see me,this is what they tell me.


Hi,

I am presenting below solution by keeping in mind that the webcam software is installed on your laptop.

Compaq laptops come with QuickPlay features that allow you to conveniently access your built-in webcam. Use the QuickPlay software to activate the webcam in your Compaq laptop and record videos and photos right onto your hard drive. The software is straightforward and simple to understand for both novice and experienced computer users.
Step 1 Click the "Start" icon and type "quickplay" into the search field. Click the "QuickPlay" entry that appears in the results. Alternately, press the "QuickPlay" button located near the laptop's display.
Step 2 Click the "Video" icon in the QuickPlay interface that opens, then double-click the "HP Webcam" option in the "Source" window. The image from your webcam appears on the screen.

Do post if you still find problems in accessing the webcam.

Thanks,
Amar

Sir,my pc has an slot for webcam.but i cant access it.errow showing no webcam.please mention if i have athe webcam or not my model no is-HP G56 XG603UA ABA NOTEBOOK PC


The HP G56 laptop model has a webcam installed "On Select" systems, meaning you MAY or MAY NOT have one. Many laptop computers with webcams "On Select" systems will have the slot for a webcam, or appear to have a webcam, even if they do not. It's for no other reason than standardization of the laptop case; the screen bezel to be exact.
An easy way to check if your computer has a webcam (Or may it be the case that it's simply a slot where a webcam could be placed) if you have a Facebook account try this:
Sign into Facebook. View your own profile. Select upload photo, and select "Upload from Webcam".
Facebook's built in webcam support will initialize a webcam even if the proper software is not installed on your computer.
You can also go to the "Start" menu, select "Run", type in "DEVMGMT.MSC", hit enter. This is a list off all installed devices on your computer; You should find your webcam here.

I have an HP Laptop with the webcam. Here is info on it.

There should be an icon on the desktop that you can double click to activate it. Then if it is activated the blue light will go on next to the webcam. If there is no icon do the following:

If the webcam icon is not on the desktop, click Start , click All Programs , select HP Pavilion Webcam to open the webcam from the Windows Start menu.
    • Select HP Pavilion Webcam Demo for a demonstration of the features.
    • Select HP Pavilion Webcam to open the webcam window and display an image from the webcam
  1. If the webcam icon is not on the desktop or on the Windows Start menu, click Start , and My Computer to open the My Computer window. The webcam should be listed under the Scanner and Cameras heading. Double click on the icon to open the webcam window and display an image from the webcam.
  2. If the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam is either disabled or the drivers are not installed.
Enable the webcam If the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam may be disabled. To enable the webcam, do the following actions.
  1. Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then select Properties .
  2. On the My Computer properties window, click on the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager .
  3. Click on the plus ( + ) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.
  4. If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the c00678428.gif icon, the webcam is disabled. To enable the webcam, right-click the HP WebCam 1000 icon and click Enable . The webcam icon should now display on the Desktop or the My Computer window.
  5. If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, you should install the original webcam drivers.
If you need the drivers see below.
  1. Install the original webcam drivers If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, do the following activities to install the original webcam drivers using the HP System Recovery.
    1. Click Start , click All Programs , click System Recovery , and then click Application and Driver Recovery .

    5. Allow the PC to restart and test the operation of the webcam.
    When the webcam is operating, visit to the HP web site to look for and install the latest updated webcam drivers. If the quality of the image is not acceptable, you can perform a functional diagnostic test of the webcam.
