I want to know if it is possible to use a webcam in safe mode

I am in safe mode and would like to know if there is a way around operating a webcam in this mode, I is using skype to contact relatives overseas, but whilst I'm in this mode I can only chat verbally there surely has to be a tweak or a reg key that i could locate to resolve this issue?

No. Safe Mode is only for troubleshooting. It loads minimal drivers just for that reason.

You have a bigger problem if you can't access Windows normally.

What does starting in safe mode acconplish?

Booting in safe mode simply launches the operating system with minimal services enabled, usually no network availability, and a limited ability of usage, safe mode is used when diagnosing possible threats or for emergncy data access. In the event that the computer has stopped you from gaining access to it. A computer should never forcefully start in safe mode, it is an option usually selected on a black and white screen, start normally or start in safe mode, or start in safe mode with network. Hope this explains is a little better

Press and hold the power button for 5-8 seconds to turn it off.
Once it's off, turn on the computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode with networking and hit enter.
If you can get inside safe mode without any problem, then connect to the internet in safe mode with networking and install RadarSync. Scan your computer using the software so that you will know which drivers are outdated.
It might also caused by a virus infection, so I suggest that you also run an anti-virus scan.

The last option if everything fails is to reinstall the operating system.

Let me know if you have any questions.

My webcam don't work in safe mode

The RAM maybe faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Acer 1711 SCi web cam driver issue

You might have a virus or infection that is blocking the installation.

Your Virus Protection might be blocking the installation, try turning it off.

Try installing it in Safe Mode With Networking.

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

Im trying to uninstall lg pc suit but everytime i try it says its still running, but i dont know how to stop it to remove it

The simplest way around this problem is to enter Safe Mode and uninstall it.

1. Restart PC
2. Press F8 until Windows Boot Menu appears.
3. Select Safe Mode
4. After Safe Mode finishes loading, press Win+R to open the Run command.
5. Type APPWIZ.CPL into the dialog box and press enter.
6. Allow Add and Remove Programs to fully load.
7. Scroll down to the LG PC Suite, select it, and then click Uninstall/Change.
8. Uninstall the program.
9. Restart computer.

If you don't want to go to the hassle of entering Safe Mode, then another option would be to open Task Manager and end any process affiliated with the LG PC Suite. Then you should be able to uninstall the program.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

who ever fixed your laptop must has done some thing that has led you to this's just not possible that you wont have Safe Mode, it's one of the inbuilt safety system of Windows F8 to get into the option to go to Safe Mode or.....Normal mode of operation.....
You need to press F8 before the Windows screen appears...after you switch ON your laptop.

Apparantly my anti-virus is turned off. I do not know how to turn it on. Anti-virus sub is DWDXPVWDB6VM

Please post which Anti Virus program you are referring to (Norton, Symantec, AVG, Avast, etc....)? As the different applications use different terminologies and knowing which one will help us help you.

At any rate I would suggest making sure your AV definitions are up to date, and if not update them. Then reboot holding the F8 key and selec "Safe Mode" when the option screen appears and press "Enter" then select your Operating system on the next screen and again press "Enter". Then select yes when the Grey pop up appears. When you see a desktop (it will look different with "Safe Mode" on all edges of the screen) you should click start, then rest over "All programs" and select your anti-virus program and run a full scan in safe mode.
I suggest this as your AV protection being turned off may suggest infection and the safe mode scan can possibly repair it.
