    my first suggestion would be to update the driver. What make and model is it? I will be able to answer your other questions if you tell me this too.

Web cam says to close other video streaming application before it can proceed but there are no applications open that I know of.


try and install the right driver for this device ...that's why it says this ...it sees all wrong ...the issue with windows 7 is that does not have drivers for cameras or elder devices....if it is a built in camera ....just try to get in touch with the manufacturer and see if there is any drivers for the camera ...also ...you can try the driver for vista on 64 ...usually works ..but this is not a rule...
if there is no other chance ..until the driver will appear on the internet ...just get another camera with driver compatible with this operating system ...or roll back to vista or xp ...cause this oS is not that great anyway ...its slow...hard t use...and strange...

Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!

Cant get web cam to work help


Try do uninstall all Webcam specific applications(Like YouCam), and close all webcam enabled application(like Live Messenger).
sometimes they conflict with skype.
install latest drivers for your webcam if you don't have them already
Go in the skype settings and set up your webcam.
Now you should be good.

Acer orbi cam


tell me about it, it seems to be an inherrent fault with this model, this sometimes works though.

swivel the camera around to face the rear of the notebook (making sure you turn it the right way) and turn it back again, now try to run the camera again, keep clicking the icon to start the cam and eventually it comes on.

My web cam won't turn on


are you mentioning the cam in the laptop??

the cable for the cam should be loosely connected to the motherboard or it should have been popped out of position due to vibrations or shaking ..
that is why it works few times...

probably you should check the connections inside
