Webcam problem


Acer drivers.

I found this driver: Acer Extensa 5210 Chicony Webcam Driver 5.7

(I have also mirrored the file here.)


Here are the exact steps I took.

1. Downloaded the file.
2. Unzipped it to a folder on my desktop.
3. Ran the "Setup.exe" file in the folder that got unzipped.
4. Went through the installer until it got to the end and then let it restart my computer.
5. Waited for my computer to restart.
6. It popped up something saying it was installing the drivers for my webcam. Waited until it was done.
7. Opened the Control Panel.
8. Opened the Device Manager.
9. Find my webcam under "Imaging Devices". I noticed it was listed as "HP Pavilion Webcam"despite having just installed the Acer drivers.
10. Right-clicked on my webcam and chose "Update Driver Software..."
11. Chose "Browse my computer for driver software"
12. Chose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
13. Unchecked the "Show compatible hardware" checkbox.
14. Scrolled down to the Chicony manufacturer.
15. Chose the "Acer Crystal Eye webcam.
16. Told it to install anyway when it asked me a question about installing that driver.
17. Waited for the driver to be installed.
18. Noted that my webcam was now listed as an Acer Crystal Eye webcam in Device Manager.

And that was it. It appears to work totally fine now

Forgot to note: This is on a DV6000T running Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium.

I took that with Dorgem, an excellent, free, open source webcam application.

Dell latitude e6400 laptop webcam?


For the Dell Latitude E6400 The Webcam is actually optional. To check whether you have it on your laptop look at the top of your screen. On the left of the display latch, you are supposed to find 3 items there if you have a webcam. The left most side is the microphone, so it is actually a very small hole, followed by a small light, the indicator for the webcam and a small circular one that is the webcam. If you do not have any of these on the left side of that latch then your latitude did not come with a webcam.

Uninstall the software. don't connect your webcam with pc. Re-install the software via disk then re connect the webcam. when it says your new software has been installed but will work only after restart just give a restart. your cam will work

My webcam wont work on msn


double check your msn settings to see if its configured to use your webcam as its webcam device. try running the phillips software first and see if the webcam is actually functioning and verify that its installed properly...you can also just try a simple re-install of the camer and see if that works. soemthing silly...see if the camera has an on/off button (they usually do for privacy to turn it off immediately and it doesnt neccessarily say "on/off".

I got a Mac powerbook and I cant get this Quickcam STx to work.


It sounds like the drivers for the camera are there, but not the software programme. Can you use the camera in Windows live once it has been set up in the options? Is your camera recognised when connected? or is it just the software that's not working.
