Edge 40 How do I set up and use the integrated Wecam? It is not listed in Device Manager.

We just purchased this new edge 40 with the integrated webcam, but it doesn't show up in our device manager, nor can I find how to use it or set it up in the help that came with this.

How can we set it up and use it?

Thanks

Found the problem. The software was never installed.

I downloaded software from yawcam and the camera magically came to life.

That's great that you figured that out.  How about marking your last post as solved so other posters can find it easily.

 

Thanks

My Integrated Camera is listed in th device manager and the LED light's up, however, it fails to display. I tested the connection against google video chat and Windows messenger. The Thinkvantage software even reports the camera as functioning. During one test, we connected a seperate USB camera to the laptop and got the service to work. We unplugged the usb camera from the laptop and the integrated camers took over and functioned well during the test.  I realize it's software driven but I don't know the path to take.

I think that fn+esc still enables and disables the camera.

 

I know in live messenger you have to open tools, audio and video setup to have the camera work.

 

Yawcam seems to be a good program to use the camera in, according to other posters.
