Download the driver for your cam from Acer just to make sure you have the latest driver. Then goto control panel, system then device manager and uninstall the web cam. Then run the driver package and wait for the hardware wizard to install thedrivers and the cam. Reboot after it finishes. I hope this helps.

I own an ACER ASPIRE 5732Z-443G32Mn, my problem is with the webcam which is not working. When I'm trying to open the cam the following message is shown on the screen, " The program can't start...


Hi

Just reinstall your webcam driver to fix the missing DLL FILE.

Or go to this link http://www.dll-files.com/.

If still the same, the only solution is to reinstall the operating system and reinstall again the webcam driver which might be corrupted with the windows registry file.

I have an asus laptop, and the built in webcam worked for about to weeks but it just stoped working, when i to open lifeframe it says the camera is being used my another program help me fix it


Did you try reinstalling the drivers? Maybe try uninstalling the webcam device from the Device Manager first.
Sometimes programs that install later can affect the workings of existing software or devices.

Webcam stopped working


HI,

You can manage your webcam if you have installed Dell Webcam Manager.


1. click on START
2. When the menu opens, highlight either All Programs or Programs.

3. Click the Dell Webcam folder, then click the Dell Webcam Manager icon to open it.

If it is not on your system, try to remove and reinstall the driver from manufacture website.

Open control panel look in scanners and cameras if the camera is listed in there click on it - if it opens a preview picture and works then either you have the wrong software - it is corrupted or there is a conflict.

Acer orbi cam not working


Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.

Thanks
