How to fix my web cam - PC Laptops


Answers :

Hi..
The very first step is of course to check your webcam connection.Most webcams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if yourUSB cable is properly plugged. For build-in webcams this steps does ofcourse not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in webcam. Also tryconnecting your webcam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub(if you are using one).

The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.

It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but theright drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark willindicate a problem.

If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, it will be listed under Other Devices.

In either case you can try to update the drivers. Right-click the device, and in the popup menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.
In case no driver for the webcam can be found, you can try a third party driver scanning program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.

If this fails, the next step would be to uninstall the software that came with your webcam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party uninstaller.

After uninstalling the software, restart your PC and then reinstallthe webcam software. In most cases this will solve the problems.Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your webcam duringthe software installation.
If the drivers and webcam software are correctly installed, and youstill cannot see any video, there can be a problem with the programsettings. Most chat and meeting software have a configuration option toselect the video source for the webcam feature. If you have multipledevices that qualify for video, you might need to select your webcamdevice as the source for the webcam feature in that program.

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although thatshould be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is doesnot harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.

Lastly, if your webcam’s image is not sharp, check to see if it hasa focus ring. A blurry image can sometimes simply mean the webcam isnot in focus. Adjusting the focus through the ring can solve thatproblem....
