My laptop has a web cam but after formatting i discovered that my webcam is no longer functioning what will i do please. the laptop is hp probook 4510s thanks


Hello

You need to update the driver for your laptop so that your webcam can function.

Goto system properties and click on imaging device.If the device is installed properly then you need to just install the webcam software.If you see a yellow question mark on your device then you need to install software driver for it to work.

Go to your control panel and click on Imaging device,right click on your webcam and click update driver software

This will update your driver and your webcam should work well again

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

Webcam being used by some other unknown software.


You will have to reinstall the Camera Driver. Uninstall the Camera Driver from the Device Manager and then reinstall it. Also, install MSN once you reinstall the Camera Driver.

The web-cam is not working. I only get "web-cam driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer". I have dine this many times without success.


Re-install the driver for the webcam.
Follow these steps to re-install the driver for the webcam. You will need to be logged in as an Administrator or have an Administrator password ready. 1. Click the Windows Start button. 2. Click Control Panel, System and Maintenance and then Device Manager. 3. Right-click on Chicony USB 2.0 Camera and select Update Driver Software. A yellow exclamation point indicates that the camera is recognized by Windows but is not working properly, probably because of problem with the device driver 4. Select Browse my computer for the driver software. 5. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer. 6. Select USB Video Device from the list, and click Next. 7. If the message “Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device” appears, click Close. 8. Restart Windows. The webcam should now work properly.


Thanks

If you still have the motherboard installer CDs, try to uninstall your built-in webcam software. Restart your laptop and then install the webcam software again following the detailed instructions of the installation wizard.

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.

Web cam on latitude e6500


I have same problem. I downloaded the latest webcam driver, installed it. Everything is fine, in the device manager the device are present. But when i try to load the webcam application from dell the device is not present or not installed appear.
Notice: if I try the YM webcam, the device work properly - that's mean the device driver is OK.
So the E6500 is a beautiful great notebook, with poor software.
