How can i use my hp probook inubuilt cam


If you use Skype or some instant messaging, chat, video calling program it will sense the presence of a camera and will ask you whether you want to use it.
For HP laptops there is usually an application software installed that allows you to use the camera. Look in the list of programs for something that may be named my camera, HP web camera, Camera application. etc.

I have Toshiba laptop with built in camera, but whenever i try to open the camera i recieve an error message 'CEC_Main.exe' reinstall. Kindly help how do i go about.

The error message 'CEC-MAIN.exe' is connected with the Camera Assistant Software,
You are unable to run the camera software because your KIS (Kasperkey Internet Security is blocking it by keeping "CEC-MAIN.exe" in the 'Untrusted File'.

Or My computer >> Local Disk (C) >> Program Files >> Camera Assistant Software Folder >> CEC-MAIN icon
Your webcam should now be running

Whenever i open up my camera it says "could not start the camera. close other applications and try opening again."


Hi, when a camera says could not open the camera close other application and try again ,means that either to much application where opened at a tie or the camera is corrupted.

First, scan through phone and see if unnecessary applications where open,If not, that means the camera is faulty and will eeed to be replayed.

    go to device manager, check under imaging device.
    check the manufacturer (it should not "microsoft").
    download camera application from www.acerpanam.com.


    if the manufacturer is microsoft, go to www.acerpanam.com and download all camera drivers (there are 3. bison, suyin and logitech). install the camera drivers first and then the camera application.

    Note: if your camera is bison, in the windows directory, there is a folder called "bison" something. so you can download the camera application for bison.

    Webcam breakdown


    check in the device manager, if your camera is there.
    it's supposed to be under imaging device.
    if it isnot there, it's mean something wrong with your camera, it could be camera cable or camera itself.
    if it is there, it's mean software problem, try to reinstall application software. if you don't have it you can download from www.acerpanam.com
