Most modern laptops have a built-in webcam. This device, irreplaceable for many people, allows you to communicate through video with friends, relatives and acquaintances who are hundreds or thousands of kilometers away.
The webcam in the new PC may be in an inactive state. To activate it, you need to perform some configuration of the operating system. Not every user knows how to do this, so many are asking: where can I set up a web camera on a laptop in Minsk? To do this, it is enough to contact the service center – the specialists will install the necessary drivers (in Windows 7, 8 there are no built-in utilities for working with the webcam) and will make all necessary settings.
Causes of malfunctions
If the webcam stops working on your PC, the cause of the problem can be either software (associated with software that can crash) or hardware, when the “webcam” itself or the cable that connects it to the motherboard goes down. In order to determine what is the matter, you need to perform the following actions:
- Restart the laptop (the service responsible for the webcam operation may turn on during the restart).
- Check if the camera is turned on. To do this, you need to run a program that is responsible for managing the operation of the webcam, or launch a webcam test by selecting the appropriate menu in the client program window.
- Enable the webcam, if it turns out that for some reason it is disabled. On some models of the personal computer for its inclusion, there is a special switch located at the top of the screen or on the back of the gadget. You can also start the webcam by pressing hot keys (Fn + key with the camera icon) or through the “Control Panel”.
- Check if the drivers are installed and, if necessary, install or update them. You can do this through the “Device Manager”.
If you did the above manipulations, but nothing helped, the image did not appear, most likely a hardware failure. In this case, do not try to fix the device yourself – entrust this work to professionals. The cost of repairing a web camera on a laptop will be significantly lower than the cost of eliminating more serious failures, which may result in an attempt to repair the device yourself.
