How can I view my webcam under VISTA?

Hi dear Sir,
Before I used WIN XP Professional and I could see my webcam with XP software next to the local partition on my windows computer. But now I'm on WIN VISTA Ultimate and can't find anything to show my webcam as in WIN XP. So what is the reason for this. Here are some way to view my webcam without software again. My webcam is included in my laptop and not separate. Dell Vostro 1500 "
Totally, I'm sure that I have installed the driver for my webcam correctly but it still don't work for me. However, I can view it with yahoo messenger or it is a "Creative Live" software. But I would like to work as Win XP in /my computer.

Best regards.

Look under "input devices drivers" at this link of Dell and see if you can use the Vista driver.

  • Re: Satellite A300 - how can I make the webcam work on Win7

    Hello everyone.

    I had Win Vista installed on this Satellite A300 and it worked well.
    I had no problem at all.

    Then I moved to Win7 and now I'm going through the test of the work of webcam.
    I tried to install all types of drivers, even those for A500, but it would be of no use.

    So, how can I make the webcam work on my A300?

    I've tried everything, even the installation of Ubuntu on this laptop and still it wouldn't work. If this is your interest, I'm under Win7 in Spanish, x 32, Home Edition.

    I really need your help here, please, I beg you, I spent 5 days ago almost try ANYTHING!
    And yet, I get the message after each installation/reboot of the: "the camara web esta disabled o ha Fall.» "Por favor, it check las web camara su configs", which would result in something like "the webcam is disabled or it has failed. Please check the configuration of your webcam. I've been browsing the forum for related issues, but I have not found any solution :(

    Thanks in advance,



    Seems the webcam software has not been installed correctly.

  • How can I view all the elements of an array?


    I'm learning about the handling of tables.  The example finder includes this one, 'build', which shows the two modes, concatenate and adding, I understand, HOWEVER, I can't understand how they built this vi.  For example, I can find the Array function to build, but I do not understand how they created the "digital data table 1" "data table 2" digital... etc, and I can't find the functions on the pallets that cause display "build the CONCATENATE entries table". ".  Where are these blue functions?

    Where these functions are found in the palette, and how we build them like that?

    The other vi indicated here, 'for loop' is my attempt to reproduce, but it doesn't show all the elements of the array; However, it only displays a SINGLE element, the last element of the array.  How can I view all the items in the table I am creating using the FOR LOOP?

    Thank you

  • How can I view my 6 d raw files before I open them in post processing?

    How can I view my 6 d raw files after I load it on my computer & before I open them on a post-processing program?

    I have no problem what to do with my 1DX 1DIV or 5Dmk III. This problem exists with any sdhc card I use on the 6 d, but not on any other device with the same cards.

    Your computer is not set to a 6 d camera RAW support.  RAW is not really a standard format... it is more than a concept.  Each individual unit has its own unique RAW format (even if they're all the same.) CR2 extension).

    Whenever a new camera comes out, companies that manufacture RAW processing software will make an update available which adds that the camera.  You'll need to get this update and install it.

    1. How can I change the way to Vista Explorer (NOT Internet Explorer) highlights a selected item or folder?  At the moment it is transparent and not discernible from the background.
    2. is it possible to have Vista's Explorer expand a folder with a single click as XP, closing the folder previously expanded (in the folders pane) If Yes, how can I do this?
    3. How can I remove the links from above the folder column in Explorer?  It is a waste of space for me.
    **. Why Microsoft put links in a folder to the folders in this folder?  All I get is 'click to access the folder' and then a message that I don't have access rights to the folder.  It is a stand alone and I'm the only operator on this subject.  WTF?
