Question about Acer Aspire 5920-6727 Notebook

1 Answer

In desperate Need!

Hi Juli, my name is Tyson and me and my fiance are doing the long distance dating and so are quite used to using our webcams and hers has stopped working which really sucks. We've done everything. The cam worked for about 6 months now and just stopped. It seems that it will work for about 2 seconds and as soon as she moves it freezes.

Are there any suggestions you can give. Is it a cam problem or a video problem? We will go and get another but whats the point if its the video card.

Shes running the Aspire 5920 crystal eye webcam.

Thank you So much in advance,

Tyson Smith

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

I change my windows too windows7,and my webcam


hi!
It's quite possible that Windows 7 does not "know" your webcam, so you need to install a webcam driver.
You can find all hardware drivers for your laptop here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGN-CS118E (under Camera section)

Just download and install your webcam driver (I advice to check if other device drivers are up to date too) then reboot and it should work.

The McAfee 60-Day Trial, have a bug and/or conflict with the webcams. you need to uninstall the McAfee Suite and install another antivirus.

If this do not solve your problem, try to uninstall and install the drivers.

How to get my webcam works


  1. Press the QuickPlayc00865937.jpg button (normally located near the display) on the notebook PC to open the QuickPlay application. NOTE: If this takes you to DVDPlay instead of QuickPlay, then you are probably not using an HP Pavilion notebook and you do not have QuickPlay installed. You should skip this test and go to Test the webcam using YouCam instead. Alternately, click Startc00814574.gif , type QuickPlay in the search field, and select QuickPlay when it becomes available to open the QuickPlay application.
  2. Click c00865938.jpg icon, and double-click HP webcam in the Source column. The input from the webcam displays on the screen.
  3. Click Record in the QuickPlay window to record a short webcam file, and then press Stop .
    • By default, the file is saved in a public folder, and the date is used as the name of the video file. For example: C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam\webcam_20070228_1540.mpg .
    • The saved file can be renamed and moved for use by QuickPlay or other media programs.
  4. Double-click the name of the file in the playlist in the QuickPlay window to view the short Webcam file.
  5. If you can view this file, this concludes this test. You should now test with YouCam.
If you have a third-part webcam, see HP Notebook PCs - Testing a Webcam in Vista with QuickPlay for additional information. Test the webcam using YouCam To verify that the webcam on an HP or Compaq computer that shipped with Microsoft Vista with Service Pack 1 installed is operating properly, perform the following YouCam test. This test verifies that the Webcam is working and can record or play video files.
  1. Click Startc00814574.gif , type you in the search field, and select Cyberlink YouCam from the resulting list. After a few seconds the program starts and the webcam image should be visible in the main viewing window.
  2. Click c01475672.jpg in the main control bar to record a short webcam file, and then press Stop .
    • By default, the file is saved in the Documents folder, in a subfolder named YouCam, with a generic name based on the date. For example: Capture_20080327.wmv
    • To navigate to this folder, click Startc00814574.gif , Computer , and then select Documents under Favorites, and then open the YouCam folder.
    • The saved file can be renamed and moved for use by YouCam or other media programs.
  3. Double-click the name of the file in the playlist in the YouCam window to view the short webcam file.
  4. This test verifies that the webcam is working and can record or play video files.

I hope this helps you, I don't have the same operating system. You can find all the information you are looking for at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01560721&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3795310&lang=en#N565
