When booting up, go into the bios settings and locate where you can reset the bios to it's defaults, save and exit. After doing bios updates you need to reset the defaults as it will leave default info corrupt from the update. Afterwards if it still doesn't work, go to the device manager, locate imaging devices and remove the driver for the camera, reboot and let it install. Hopefully that will do the trick.

Well my friend Win 7 should have the cam installed under devices. Tick to the control panel and go to devices see if the cam is located in devices first off. It will show an icon. If not you will need to install the driver for it. I would go to the manufacturer web site and download the software and drivers for the cam. Here is a link with the information you need to assist you with your cam. Click Here You can go there to review your driver software and also troubleshooting tips etc. It is possible that you may need some free cam software as well. That way you can use the cam this may have been something the manufacturer left out for you to buy in order to use the cam although rare it is not uncommon these days for companies to do this. There are plenty of cam free software freeware out there to seek your cam out and use the cam with for instant messaging programs. Another way to check to see if your cam will even work is to download MSN or Yahoo instant messenger and select use web cam. The software will find your cam. Be sure last but not least to check everywhere for the software in the files section. If the cam is not located in devices you will need to download the driver files from the link I provided. I hope that this gives you some sort of a plan of action here. John
Possible that the drivers to the webcam was removed/ has errors or that the web cam hardware has failed.
Now you can try and reinstall the drivers once again, you can also open control panel>device manager and check on the web cam driver or reinstall.
If not the web cam can be faulty or there can be problems in the wiring to the webcam or a fault in the motherboard.
Make sure that ur cam is installed correctly & and reinstall ur driver correctly and download the latest driver of that software if again not working then itx something wrong with ur cam & might be the problem in ur registry so clean ur registry with reginout
There is a setting for the camara. Find the camera in the device manager then use the right button and click for properties , if that don't work look in image etc setting with the control panel select your camera, right button click, properties or it may be called settings and either tick or untick the 90 degree rotation or upside down setting
Hi mgcook86! I will be glad to assist you in this issue. There are resons why the web cam stops working. here are the posibility: 1. The device is total broken. check the physical device if there is a presence of broken or damage cable or something else. 2. The driver for the web cam is corrupted or deleted from the device manager. If this is the case, check on the device manager if the web cam driver is installed, If the driver is installed, uninstall it and re install the driver and that will fix the issue. 3. If your web cam is a built in with the laptop, check the bios settings of the laptop, possibly the device is turn off from the bios. 4. It could be a virus issue, if the device is working for the last few days and just stop working, try to restore the operating system earlier than the time that it stop working, it could be a virus issue that corrupt the registry of your O.S.
Good news it is not the video card causing this problem most likely she has downloaded or acceppted updates to the operating system that has caused conflict check the web cam vendors website and ensure you are having the most recent drivers
This is not necessarily a one shot fix all, but, I would kind of relate this either to an overheating issue or a BIOS/North Bridge error. I would look up a good CD-booting diag software like Eurosoft's PC Check. do a full diagnostic of all your hardware, including the USB ports. You can also attempt to download more recent software from the webcam's manufacturer. Another simple check is to try someone elses cam on your pc to see if the same problem exists. It could be something as simple as the software you are using your cam on.
First, try uninstalling your cam through the hardware manager, reboot and let it re-install it. The orbicam has had issues for quite some time on Acer's PC's. I've never been able to use mine for more than about 2-3 months without having something happen with it.
You can also go to Acer's website and download the current/newest cam driver for your computer.
You've got graphic rendering problem bcos, the webcam drivers installed in your laptop don't work correctly. ie) the driver installed forces your webcam to take a snapshot at a resolution that is not supported by the webcam hardware...So, tell me ur laptop model number and I'll let u know abt the drivers....
