Webcam not working

My webcam doesn't work on my Gateway PC. It worked before. I receive the error "Cannot open file C:\Program Files\Camera Assistant Software for Gateway\corona\BG1.bmp". I've tried to uninstall the software, but I get the error "setup.exe has stopped working". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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 a Gateway NV55C laptop. I've had it since December 2010 and I've had no problems with it. Then, a few days ago, I was trying to open up my webcam but this message came on the screen;...


This could be connection to webcam is loose or unplugged. Is this a USB webcam connection or onboard? If it is USB, check connection, unplug and plug it back to see if it works. Reboot your laptop might help. If still not workings, you might need to uninstall and reinstall it. Thanks

My Gateway Windows 7 NV5929u laptop's built-in Video Web Camera doesn't work. All it does now is pop up the following message whenever I try to open it: Cannot open file C:\Program Files...


The file it's saying it cant find is a simple image file, most likely a picture used for a background or some other part of the webcam softwares interface. The first step would be to go to the location it's mentioning and make sure the file is in fact missing. If it is, you can check the recycle bin to see if it has been accidentally deleted. If its not there, then the next option would be to re-install the webcam software.
The webcam software for the gateway NV59 series can be downloaded here : http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2379
hope that helps.

My orbicam


Hi Fino
There is no guarantee that the camera is working properly.
Is the setting done by you for the screensaver to sync it to your webcam 'coz that might be a temporarirly saved one.
Look for the .exe files of the webcam software in your program files .
And then search using search utility for windows for *.exe files and hope you find orbicam files in the results.
If not then the orbicam software is not properly installed.
So reinstall it.

Waiting for your appreciation.
