Important notes
The computer communicates with cameras with photo softwares required installation. Photo software installed has to be compartible with the brand camera. Generic photo softwares installed on the computer can recognise any built-in cameras, camera connection attachements. Once, a photo software has been click opened, the features fucntionalities of capturing snap shots, editing, and saving are made possible from any available camera devcies. Built-in computer cameras have already installed softwares locatable on the menu programs task bars.

A separate camera used to acquire photos elswhere requires connections to the computer from which manipulations become possible. Any already existing photo media softwares would recognise to intergrate a camera connection. For the camera to function while connected to a computer would require the feature functions of an opened photo editing program.

Note 1
A computer built-in camera can perform on the network only by opening the photo windows software provided on the web. The internet web cam for example provides the opportunity to search and locate any cameras attached to the computer for network communications. Such an instance easily recognises the built-in computer camera. A separate camera would require connection compartibilities to the computer systems, and possibly the network type. A network that provides photo camera softwares incompartible to the cameras connected to the computer would require generic softwares installations for communcations to take place between camera, computer, and a network of computers.

My built in camera doesnot work


Hello,

You will need to provide the system model for specific help.

Usually if you go to the manufactures website and download the drivers for the particular model. Then refer to the manual on how to activate the camera it will begin working.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

How to activate built in webcam.


When your computer boots up does the small light next to the camera come on for a second of two and goes back off. If it does it means that the camera has been detected by the system. You can check by going to the settings, control panel, system, hardware, device manager, imaging devices and see if the camera is shown in the list. If it is the the computer has configured the camera and this can be confirmed by right clicking on the camera and checking the properties to see what it says.

Unless the notebook came with a program directly associated with the camera, then the actual camera operation will take place in the program that you will be using the camera in like Skype, Yahoo or some other video messaging program, at which time during the configuration you will tell the program what device you want to use for the camera, usually from a drop down list, select your camera and it should start working with the program. In other programs you can use it as a capture device by selecting it as the device to use to capture a picture. Good luck, RAC

HP web cam software doesn't see built in camera


It might be a good idea to download the latest software for your Camera as it is never up to date when you purchase Webcams. Always get the latest software drivers/programs for new hardware.
Before you load up the new driver check for any special instructions that came with the cam as you may need to uninstall the old software first. Sounds like it's corrupted anyway. Good luck

I just got a toshiba satellite laptop with built in camera. problem is when i activate the camera all i can do is see myself. woopee!! i bought the computer with the camera to make video calls back home...


Toshiba laptops with built-in cameras tend to come with proprietary software that controls the camera. You're going to want to disable or turn this off prior to using the camera in an IM client.

Alternatively, since you seem to be having issues with Yahoo, consider trying Windows Live Messenger. Also previously known as MSN messenger, clients can now talk to people using Yahoo messenger. You might be able to have a video conversation that way, without having to deal with Yahoo.
