Re: How do I turn on my internal webcam?!

OMG THANK YOU. I was trying to take video of my son and couldn't figure it out.  We use the web cam frequently for Skype, but until you said the program name....I was clueless.

Hello, aprilfoster.

 

I see that you're having an issue working the webcam. I have a couple of questions for you which will give me a better outlook of what's going on with your webcam.

 

Could you please provide the full model name and number of the notebook you have?

 

Also, have you tried opening the program "YouCam" to test the webcam?

 

Is it giving you any type of error messages?

 

Could you please provide a little more information about the issue you're having?

 

THX

Hello, 

 

@Bob_S5 & jazzminford, I see that you're having an issue with the webcam. The description of this thread really doesn't give too much information about the issue. So, what exactly is the issue you guys are having? 

 

Does YouCam not see the webcam when you open it?

Do you get an error message while trying to use the webcam? 

Could you please give a little more information about the issue you're having? 

 

Also, Bob_S5 could you please give me the full model name and number of the notebook you have?

 

THX

Re: How do I turn on my internal webcam?!

I'm not sure. All I know is that the camera light lights up but nothing appears on the screen. It looks like it is working but nothing else happens. I've tried going into device manager and it says everything is ok so I am at a loss as to why it won;t work.
