Because msn is Microsoft you must vbisit the msn website to find a patch program, depending on the OS
The first step is to get the necessary drivers and applications installed. Read the instructions that came with it. Usually this is only a matter of plugging the camera into your computer and putting the CD in. The CD should autorun and install everything itself. But read the manual if you get stuck…. Most camera's come with the software needed, usually you will find after the CD has autorun there will be some icons on your desktop. That's the software, and probably one or two other things as well. If you want to chat to people online with your camera, try using MSN. It should automatically detect your camera settings and then its just a matter of the other person accepting your invitation to use webcam. If you just want to take pictures and do some small recordings then the applications that came with the camera should be sufficient. (MORE)

I could use it for capturing a still image only once every 30 seconds, while others provide streaming video by capturing 30 images per second. Or I capture a series of digital images that are transferred by the computer to a server and then displayed to the hosting page. There are even sites that al…low users to upload and store their webcam images for free, which many individuals choose for personal use.. One use is security. You could set one up in your home and watch it from work. Another is a monitor. Aim one at your sleeping child and watch from another room to see when he wakes up. Another use is to check on your animals out in the barn. Another is to watch over your garden and see what animals are sneaking in to eat your lettuce. Another is to keep an eye on your kids when they are playing out back.. Another use is to be a webcam model,. get paid to sit in front of your webcam and look pretty. http://i.am/a.model for more info (MORE)

Most laptops have their webcams on the top of the screen. If you look closely, you should notice a small hole of some sort. That should be the camera/webcam.

You have to use a website which allows you to take pictures and record videos, as Samsung laptops have no short-cuts, programmes, applications etc. to do so itself. I think this is a bad thing which should be suggested to the company; it has a built-in webcam but nothing to use it on. You can try si…tes like: http://www.cameroid.com/ (MORE)

The Playstation Eye would need a driver for the laptop and it would not really fit on anything. In short why would you want to when there are much better products to use as a webcam for a laptop.
Almost all web-cams these days come with a USB plug. Simply find a vacant USB port and 'plug & go' ! If your laptop already as a built-in web-cam, you might have to switch between the two - For example, I use Paltalk and sometimes I need to use an external web-cam instead of the built-in one - Palta…lk gives me the option to switch between the two cameras.

Well, you should have software on your computer/laptop for it. If not then Download some from the internet- there should be some for free but make sure your anti-virus software is working. If the screen for your webcam seems to be blank then this might mean that your drivers need updating. So click …onto 'start' then right click 'Computer' and click on properties. When this screen comes up press on 'Device manager' , scroll down the list untill you find 'Imaging device' and then click on that. The screen for that should come up and there is three tabs : 'General' , 'Drivers' and 'Details' , click on drivers and then on 'Update' , Let the stuff update and then if it doesnt work its because you need to shut down so it can save the changes. - I hope this helps, by the way this advice was given to you from a 12 year old girl who fixed her webcam,This is guaranteed to work!

From there you can reinstall the webcam drivers which will more than likely fix your pro…blem. (MORE)
Absolutely. I have a Toshiba laptop with a built-in webcam. I also have an external web-cam - which I use for security monitoring. Both cameras work equally well.
Yes - simply go to the Control panel, and select 'programs and features' - look for the software for the cam in the list - and click it. All you need to do is confirm you want to remove the software.
