Re: camera

If you have Vista there is a bug, that when you open the camera the cam settings tab pops up but then no camera, so you have to click the camera icon in the settings tab window that pops up and it should work. If you still have problems uninstal the cam in device manager in control panel by right clicking on the camera make and selecting uninstal and restart the notebook to re install it again and try again. If your on XP then uninstall as above and reinstall

When ever i open my webcam its showing camera is not installed or camera is occupied by another user

If it says, camera is occupied by another user, open Task Manager, look for Your Webcam Software, maybe CyberLink, end process. If it says, webcam not installed, open Device Manager, Imaging Devices, Is it listed? Enabled? Working properly? Driver needs updating? You can find the original driver for your Acer webcam here, select your OS:

Internal camera not working

Dear Joyce, here are few of the reasons why your internal camera is not working:

1) The camera driver is not properly installed or the installed one doesn't support your camera. (To be sure of this go to Device Manager and then look for any Yellow Question Mark)

2) If you are sure that driver is of correct version and is present in the system then your Camera Strip might have been damaged. The internal camera is connected to your MOTHERBOARD with a small brownish strip and if it is damaged the camera does not works at all or there might be a loose connection to any end. But for that you have to take your laptop for inspection at an authorized center.

No web cam found

It may not be detected by windows or the device manager till the correct driver is installed and can initialize the device (Power it Up)

Try Searching Acers website for a Vista version of your driver , and be sure to make sure you pick the correct bit (ie; 32bit drivers will only work with 32bit vista, and 64 with 64)

Webcam for Presario C700 not working

Hi v_tahseen,

There is a couple reasons this could happen.
1. You might have another program that's using the camera and it is conflicting.
2. The software is not turning on the camera in which point try to turn it on manually.
Just for the heck of it try to use the camera without the youcam software if it still don't work.
Then uninstall youcam and see if it works.
Sometimes software is not compatible with all computers and it does some funky things.
