SOURCE: my laptop acer aspire 5740 is not recognizing its

The problem may be with the camera itself. It is asmall device that sits behind the screen bezel and is attached to the motherboard using a long flat cable. There are times that the cable itself maybe bad, or the plug on either end. It could be that the plug has come dislodged from the motherboard or the camera itself. To check to see if the cable or camera is bad, you will have to disassemble the laptop to get to both the mounting area behind the lcd bezel and the keyboard and palmrest to sccess the cable on the motherboard. The cable itself may need replacement. I have purchased several of these on Ebay with success.

My laptop has a web cam but after formatting i discovered that my webcam is no longer functioning what will i do please. the laptop is hp probook 4510s thanks


You need to update the driver for your laptop so that your webcam can function.

Goto system properties and click on imaging device.If the device is installed properly then you need to just install the webcam software.If you see a yellow question mark on your device then you need to install software driver for it to work.

Go to your control panel and click on Imaging device,right click on your webcam and click update driver software

This will update your driver and your webcam should work well again

Webcam being used by some other unknown software.

You will have to reinstall the Camera Driver. Uninstall the Camera Driver from the Device Manager and then reinstall it. Also, install MSN once you reinstall the Camera Driver.

Laptop was formatted and now the webcam doesnt work. how do I get the webcam to work again?

You might just be missing the driver (a.k.a software) for the webcam that is on the laptop to make it work. If your webcam is integrated with the laptop you will just need to go to the vendors site and download the necassary driver for it to work.Since you don't have the brand of laptop listed it will be kind of hard to point you to the driver location but most vendors (HP, Dell, Gateway) all have sites that you can get this from.
