Did you check on Device Manager?.. if it has and Yellow Exclamation Mark, then something must be wrong with the drivers or BIOS setup... If it has and Red X on it, it could mean, disabled (BIOS again) or disabled on the Device Manager.

If There's no Yellow or Red Mark then.. i should work fine...

Microsoft lifecam cinema won't work with windows xp, downloaded updates still no joy any solutions to why this kit wont work? Keeps coming up send error report. When opening the camera via my computer...


I have the exact same Camera....... and I have gotten it to work on Windows XP just fine.....
here are a few troubleshooting tips to help you figure out if its just settings
1: go to another application that can use a webcam (ie: MSN messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Facebook) and see if the Cam will work.
2: try downloading alternate software to manage your webcam ( http://www.manycam.com/)
if the above two options dont work with the webcam.. it may be the cam itself.

My hp pavilion dv9000, or hp pavilion entertainment pcs web cam will not turn on. i cant seem to find out why it wont turn on plz help


Check Control Panel>Devices and Printers. if the camera is installed, you should see the Acer Crystal Eye webcam. if you do not see the webcam, You will have to get the driver from either the web or HP.
If you see the webcam, Double click the webcam icon and click hardware>properties to check for proper operation. if everyting is fine, then the application you are using needs to be looked at.
If the webcam is not working properly according to the device status, right click the webcam icon in the Devices and Printers window and follow the instructions.
Let me know if this solves the problem or if we need to investigate further. Thanks.

MY INTERGRATED WEBCAM WILL NOT COME ON.HAVE TRIED EVERTHING AND IT STILL WONT COME ON HELP


Hi, I would like to help you out.
I just want to confirm few things. Was this webcam working fine before? If so please check if the webcam driver is installed properly.

How to check the webcam driver?
*Please click on "start" > run > please type "devmgmt.msc"> click "ok"
*The device manager(this where we can see all the drivers of the hardware components) window will open and please look out for imaging devices.
*Kindly check if webcam driver is installed completely or even if it has an exclamation mark or X mark or question mark.

If your webcam was working fine few days back, Try doing a system restore to that day when it was working fine.

Please check this and let me know. I'll be glad to help:) Thank you.
