Re: can not get my web cam to work
Did you install the software with the camera connected to
the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the
software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it
should work. Hope this is of some help.Bud

When you open the WEBcam on your computer do you see yourself as a fuzzy image?
If so you need to adjust the focus on the WEBcam, the focus adjustment is the ring around the lens.
You can also download the WEBcam driver from the Logitech WEB site, makesure you select the driver for you model WEBcam and the XP or Vista version that matches your Windows installed version.
i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL... i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop! does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!! MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!
laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!
Your computers are running out of memory. Try to close any programs or processes that are not required. If you need to multitask while using video you can try to upgrade your ram. This is listed last but try this first. Search online for updated drivers and install them first.
Ok im not sure what cam you have or comp that your using, but cahances are you need to go to your web cam settings:START/ALL PROGRAMS/ "your cam"/ CAM SETTING. there you should see inverted or mirror settings, it might even be in ADVANCED SETTINGS try and look for it, Good luck JLS
P.S. you could always turn your cam upside down! LOL Just kidding!
Possibly, the cam is in webcam mode or other mode beside camera mode. I have an older sony and there is a mode that doesnt seem to work for me too. Im not next to it so I cant tell you what it is, but look into the setup screen and make sure the camera is in USB mode.
if you use vista
some problems arrise with vista
vista is in its infancy stages right now some hardware and software does not work with vista makin it imposible to work with this is something windows is working on i dont know how long it will take but theres alot of non compliant vista software and hardware there working on right now to be compliant with there Os system this is a patience process what i tell people is that if windows update hasnt made an update for it they will its just matter of time before they get to all products im waiting a year for my vista to come out that way i know most of bugs are worked out
