Normally, PC webcams are run by a program. Some of those programs include YouCam, YawCam etc. Check your start bar if you can see any of the progams.
A clue to help is this; most webcam programs have the word CAM attached, so in your search bar on your start menu, type the word CAM, and see what it brings up.
The webcam program usually has an 'eye - like' icon.
When you have located it, launch it, and your webcam would be turned on.
If typing 'cam' on the search bar on the start menu does not bring forth results, then, your Cam program is one of those that dont have the word 'cam' attacheed.
You would have to search your program list manually, and look out for any program with an 'eye-like' icon.
Hope that was helpful to you?
Regards.

My webcam won't let me take pictures .. What do i do so i can take them ?


In order to use your web cam and take pictures follow these steps :

- Check if your web cam is working or not ( when you turn on the web cam do you get the power light on or not)

- If the web cam is working fine if it is not then you can check the cables, unplug it and replug it if you are using an external cam on a desktop computer.

- Uninstall the web cam software from add and remove programs from control panel.

- reinstall the web cam software / utility.
you can do this using the disc which you have got when you bought the web cam.

If you don't have the disc you can go to the manufacturers web page and you can download the software and driver from there.
Must ensure that you select the correct serial number of your web cam when you do this.

My web cam is built into my laptop but i cant turn it on now


Its either the web cam is broken or that the driver for it is corrupted and now the os has no way of controling or turning on the web cam.

Try this:

Reinstall the web cam driver.

If this does not work, check device manager and see if the webcam is listed.

If the camera's driver is reinstalled and the unit is listed then there is an os issue.

Write back to me with your findings after you have tried all above

How do i turn on the webcam on my acer 2930


I would assume this is a built in web-cam. Normally a web-cam software comes installed on your computer and all you need to do start the software and the web-cam will start. Or you may use this link to get a free web-cam software. http://www.eyespyfx.com/my_webcam_broadcaster.htm
Note, if the web-cam is not a built in web-cam this will work a bit differently.
