There is n special settings to change the default webcam,
after you install the external web cam drivers in your laptop, and when you use it for the for the first time, ensure that the external webcam is selected.
for example when you try to use webcam in yahoo chat, in the preference for the web cam you have hte options to select whihc web cam to use of the available cams,
all you ned to do it select the external webcam, and thats it...

I have a presario cq62-225nr i was wondering if it had a webcam installed if so how do i turn it on?


From looking at several product pages it seems that the particular model you posses does not come standard with a webcam. However, an external USB webcam can be purchased from almost any electronics retailer (ex. BestBuy, Futureshop, etc. depending on location) for as little as $15 USD.
These webcams are very easy to install and utilize and typically come with everything you need to get started (i.e. cables, instructions and drivers).

My computer continues to say webcam not found


Receiving an error message when trying to access your webcam can be frustrating, but the problem can often be resolved by doing some basic troubleshooting.



  • If you have an external webcam, check to see if it has become accidentally unplugged from your computer.
  • Perhaps another program is using your webcam. Close other programs and try accessing your webcam again.
  • If another program has crashed for some reason, it might not have released your webcam successfully. Try closing all programs and restarting your computer.
  • If you have an external webcam, it might not have installed correctly. Try reinstalling your webcam software program according to the manufacturer's instructions. For more information, go to How do I reinstall my webcam?
  • Perhaps Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device on your computer. Try changing the camera source. For more information, go to How do I change my camera source?
  • Your webcam might not be configured correctly. Try reconfiguring your webcam according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Your camera might not be not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger you can verify this by using the webcam compatibility test. To try the webcam compatibility test, go to How can I tell if my webcam will work withYahoo! Messenger?

I had a laptop of hp pavilion dv6000 with window 7 i don't have driver 0f webcam so what should i do


At issues of this type all you need do is to backup all your documents on an external drive and run system restore to default factory settings.

Procedure:
Restart system holding down the F11 function key till you hear a beep.

This will simply activate the system restore program.

Click on advance and select system restore to factory default.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

What do I click on to operate the web cam?


When you install a webcam to a PC there are two items that are installed. Firstly the driver for the camera and secondly the program to run this webcam. In laptops that have a webcam built in these two items are provided to you as default. Unless your model does not have an integrated webcam, in which case you have to attach an external one.
If you want to use the webcam in isolation then you use the webcam program and make videos and also single snap shots. But if you want to use it with an Instant Messenger (like Skype, MSN, Yahoo Messenger etc) then you have to configure the IM to use this webcam as default and whenever you are on Video Call, then on its own the IM will use this webcam when it gets connected to the other party.

Toshiba laptop freezes using webcam


Hi,

Do you think its due to external webcam ?

You mean that if you dont use webcame it works fine.

If this is the case you just uninstall the webcame drivers from Add/Remove Programmes under Control Panel.

Try to get the latest drivers from webcame manufacture website which suits your windows(OS) and install it again.
