built in webcam will not work

  krakerz 16 May 12

Im using medion akoya model E5312 notebook pc. How do you activate the built in webcam and microphone? After searching other online help forums everybody wants to know how to turn it on but nobody has an answer.

Laptop comes with vista sp-2 already installed. Nothing about the webcam in the manual. No documentation on the webcam in the help files. As usual the Medion website is no help. I can see the cam staring at me so I know it has one.... Maybe its decorative?

Check the webcam by using Windows Live Messenger. Go to tool then "Set up Audio and Video device..." You can buy different webcam software if needed.

You will need the appropriate Drivers for the webcam. Does the Webcam show up in Device Manager? If it does, is it saying the Drivers are installed? My experience is you need exactly the correct Driver or it won't work.

Try Fn and F9.
