I have just installed skype for the first time on my laptop. I have a built in webcam but it's saying there is no webcam detected.  Do I need a seperate webcam or am I missing something obvious?

 

TIA

You have to install latest webcam driver downloaded directly from laptop manufacturers website.

First check your webcam is listed in Device Manager >> Imaging Devices.

 

Click Start >> Run >> Type devmgmt.msc

I am also having a problem with my webcam not being recognized.  I followed the directions given to "Becky".  My computer shows my webcam as working but Skype does not recognize it.  I am also having a problem hearing sound. (Only on Skype are these problems.)  What can I do to fix it?

What do you see when in Skype you go to Tools -> Options -> Video settings?

 

Also what settings do you have for your Speakers in Tools -> Options -> Audio settings?
