Be sure you have admin rights when you are installing the product. Also, look into event viewer and tell me if there is any errors for your webcam. Post the webcam error here so we can distinguish the problem. Plus when you are installing the webcam, does it show you a popup box of any errors?

My webcam can't be detected


Hi,


Please be informed that any hardware device needs a driver software to run within a PC, and the driver software depends on the Hardware Make/Model and the Operating System software you are using in your PC to operate it.You will get the Driver software of any hardware within the CD provided with the hardware part at the time of its purchase. The hardware may be an entire PC,Laptop,VGA card, sound card, LAN card,webcam,printers,scanners etc.


If you do not have the CD or misplaced it somewhere then you need to download the driver software to get going. Thus you need to know all the above information to get the exact software your PC needs. As you have not mentioned the Model Number of the webcam you are using, i am unable to give you the direct download link.

However you can download the same by just visiting the company website's download section that manufactured the product.

If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote

Webcam not working


Try downloading and reinstalling the webcam driver from the manufacturer's website.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Webcam drivers.

You have to open the webcam software to activate or start the webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. The webcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs then search for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam might be inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search the folders for it. Some manufacturers have something like Entertainment Experience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as the dvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch it then click on the webcam or camera icon.

Try using ManyCam

You can always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your webcam software is.

The webcamera doesen't work in my laptop toshiba


What do you mean it does not work? Do you know how to start the webcam? Are you getting any messages that make you think it does not work?

Maybe the webcam driver is not installed. Look in the Device Manager and look for the webcam. Click Start/Control Panel and look for System or System and Performance. Look for the Device Manager (it might be under hardware). Open the device manger and look for Imaging Devices. Click the + next to imaging devices to expand and see the camera. if it is there the drive is installed. You can click on it to see if it says it is working properly.

You could download and reinstall the webcam driver.

Maybe your problem is you don't know where the program is that starts the webcam. It is located in the program list. Click Start/Programs and look for any reference to camera or webcam. It might be inside one of the manufacturer folders in the program list so search them. Some manufacturers have something like Entertainment Experience that launches all the entertainment devices when opened. if you see something similar to that, click it and it will show the webcam or camera icon.

Can't turn webcam on


Is this a laptop or a desktop? What make and model? Opertating system type? Simply saying "can't turn webcam on" is not specific enought. Saying so, since this is a pc laptop catg. First thing you want to point out is, is it a hardware or software issue? ( this is referring to windows 7 and vistaz Os) To check if it is a hardware issue, you'll have to go to the "hardware and sound" in the control panel in your start tab. You will then go into the device manager to scan the computer for the hardware detect on your laptop. It will tell you in the hardware device manage under the imaging device tab about your webcam, sometimes it might be found in another device tab. If you are able to see the webcam device, click on it to see if the driver is working properly. Such issue like this can be a simple driver promblem and you will need to install the driver which can be found on your laptop manufacture site. If reinstalling the driver and nothing comes up, most likely the webcam is dead for sure and needs to be replaced. On the other hand if the device manager did not detect the webcam hardware then, there probaly a loose cable connection somewhere between your screen and your laptop motherboard.
