I have acer aspire one how to take pics using cam


Hi, Open the "Start" menu and then select "Control Panel". A new window will pop up with two rows of icons. Click on the text on the side panel that says "Switch to Classic View."
Double-click on the icon that says "Scanners and Cameras." A new window will pop up. Double-click the "Webcam" icon.
You will see a live video stream from the camera. Once you have the subject you want in the frame, press the "Take Picture" button at the bottom of the window. The picture will be saved in your "Webcam" folder.

Not working


when you use cam in skype that time confirm your self that your not log in yahoomessenger, msn or other video chat. Becose if your cam working in any other messenger or site that time you can access your cam in skype. On that moment Skype cam window show you grey color. And another reason is Skype looking for little bit good speed net connection. If your net little bit slow then also you find your cam window is Grey. Just follow the way, hope you het success.

AVEO Camera STI


I had the same problem and by accident I solved it by pressing a button. Up by my power button there is a group of 4 buttons the first one is i assume for e-mail the next is for internet i think the third is to start my wireless internet and the last one has a P1 above it thats the one that fixed the prob. for me. When i pressed it a pic. of a cam poped up briefly. It was so fast i had to try it again when i did a pic. of a cam with a line through it popped up so I knew I must have stumbled uppon turning it on and off. but now I have a new prob. When i start the cam it runs briefly then stops with a message that there was a prob. and windows searches for a solution and shuts the program down. It says they will notify me of a solution if there is one but i dont know how they can do that without any of my contact info. Anyways I hope this helps you out if you come across a solution to my new prob. please shoot me a e-mail my adress is jaywolfman72@yahoo.com thanks and good luck.

Laptop crashed


Try this:
  1. Turn on the laptop
  2. Wait for the first page to go blank.
  3. Start to press the F8 key repeadly
  4. You should get a Windows Start" page pop up that gives options on how you want to start Windows.
  5. If you see the Windows Logo (the screen you normally see when Windows starts) screen then just restart the laptop again.
  6. Choose "Last known Good Configuration" and press Enter.
If that fails then please post back and we can try some other things.

Taking pics with my cam


Try going to My Computer and see if the camera shows as a device there. If it does, double click on it. The webcam I have (a Logitech) will then show a live preview window with an option to take a picture over on the left-hand side of the window. If you do not have options on the left-hand side, go to Tools, Folder Options and select Show Common Tasks In Folder and click Ok. I hope this helps.
