Weird but worked for me for yahoo and messenger but not quickplay. If you have the Chicony web camera, follow these steps to download Acer webcam drivers.

1. Download Acer 5210 Chicony Webcam drivers.

2. Run the setup file.

3. Follow installer prompts then RESTART PC.

4. Ignore the 'installing drivers' popup.

5. Open up the Control Panel.

6. Open up the Device Manager.

7. Select webcam from 'Imaging Devices'.

8. Right click on webcam and select 'Update'.

9. Select 'Browse computer for driver'.

10. Choose 'Let me pick from list of devices on PC'.

11. Uncheck 'Show compatible hardware' checkbox.

12. Scroll down to Chicony manufacturer.

13. Choose the 'Acer Crystal Eye Webcam'.

14. Install even if a question pops up.

YOU ARE DONE AND ENJOY YOUR CHATTING WITH ACER CYRSTAL EYE WEBCAM.

Thanks to DylanBennett for uncovering this odd fix for the HP webcam

    Hi guyz,

    If the above solution worked then you can capture photos and videos and using your webcam by simply installing a free programme called Debut you can download on this page:

Dear Sandy,
This is Soren,from the HP Pavilion Notebooks Chat Support Team, following up on our recent chat session.
I understand that the web cam is not working your notebook. Here are the steps to resolve this issue.
Step 1:Here are two procedures to know about How to use the Webcam in Vista Notebook.
Using HP webcam in Quickplay software:
1. Click on Start button, select All programs and click on Quickplay.
2. Within the Quickplay application, click the Video icon (Icon resembles, camera, music, and film).
3. Double click on "HP Web cam" or “USB Video device” in the Source column.
4. Now you could see your self on the screen.
Using HP webcam on Muvee Autoprocucer software:
1. Click on start, Select all programs and click on Muvee Autoproducer.
2. It will open Muvee Auto Producer. (Click on Trial version if it prompts.)
3. Click on Tools the top and select the Get Video from Camcorder.
4. You would see your self on the screen.

If the webcam does not show the picture you need to perform the below steps. If the webcam works, you need not to perform the below steps. Please ignore the below steps. However, I personally recommend you to save this email and if any time the webcam does not work or if it shows blank screen please perform the below steps.
Before we trouble shoot this issue let me explain the reason for this issue, HP has released new driver for webcam and the driver update process can’t be done automatically and as long as the old driver exists the webcam does not work, To resolve this issue First we need to uninstall the existing webcam from device manager. Then restart the notebook and install the latest driver to resolve this issue
Step 2: Steps to Uninstall the Webcam drivers from the device manager.
1. Click on start and click on Control panel.
2. Click on "the Classic View" on the top left side of the control panel.
3. Double click on the "Device Manager" icon in the list.
4. Click on + next to the Imaging devices. Now you would see one HP Pavilion webcam or more then one web cam listings under the Imaging devices.
4. Right click on each HP Pavilion web cam and click on uninstall. And confirm un installation if it prompts. (Click on Yes.)
5. Now the Imaging devices option should not appear on the device manager.
Note: If the HP pavilion webcam is not listed or Imaging device is not listed, in device manager you need to reset the Bios to enable the webcam. Once you reset the Bios the webcam will listed in device manager. Here are the steps to reset the Bios.
1. Restart the notebook.
2. Tap the F10 key as soon as the HP logo appears.
3. Using the arrow keys, navigate to Exit Menu, select "Load Setup Defaults" and select "Exit Saving Changes"
Step 3: Restart the notebook.
Step 4: Click on the below link and then click on Save button of the download window. Click on brows and then click on desktop then click on Save.
*we need to download the file to the desktop.
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34501-35000/sp34746.exe
Step 5: Installing downloaded web cam driver (sp34746).
1. Double click on the downloaded file (sp34746) and follow the on screen instructions to install the file.
Step 6: Once the installation prompts you that the installation has been successfully completed. Now you need to restart the notebook.
Now check the webcam input in Quickplay software using the steps provided on the step no. 1. The webcam should work, if the webcam does not work please verify the below steps.
Step 7: Enable the Imaging services on the notebook.
1. Tap Window key(flag key on the keyboard) and R key on the keyboard, at once.
2. You would see the Run window on the screen.
3. Type SERVICES.MSC and hit enter.
4. You would see the services window on the screen.
5. Double click the "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" service, and under the startup type select Automatic.
6. Click on "Start" button if it is stopped under Service status
7. Click on Apply and Ok.

Step 8: Now check the webcam in quickplay or Muvee software. verify the step 1 to know about how to use the webcam in quickplay or muvee.
If the still issue persists, Please check webcam name in device manager. If you see USB 2 Video device under the Imaging devices the webcam works properly (it means latest drivers have been loaded successfully). If you see the HP Pavilion webcam under the imaging devices, it means still the notebook is using old webcam drivers and you need to repeat the steps from Step 2:
Note: Please do not reply to this email.

Restore my asus k53u web cam


Hi Kusu,
This comes straight out of the manual for the K53U:

"Hardware Problem - Built-in Camera
The built-in camera does not work correctly.
1. Check "Device Manager" to see if there are any problems.
2. Try reinstalling the webcam driver to solve the problem.
3. If the problem is not solved, update the BIOS to the latest version and try again.
4.If the problem still exist, contact your local service center and ask an engineer for assistance."

To get to "Device Manager":
  1. Right click My Computer
  2. Click Properties
  3. Click Device Manager
  4. Look for Imaging Devices
  5. Click the arrow
  6. Right click the webcam
  7. If it says Disabled, click Enable
  8. If it says Enabled, click Update Driver Software
  9. Click Search Automatically for updated driver software - this will search the internet and your computer for the latest driver information.
  10. If that doesn't work, go to: http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/K53U/#support
  11. Select your operating system, eg. Windows 7 32bit or 64bit, Windows 8 32bit or 64bit. Look through the list and see if the driver is available.
  12. If not, your next option is to go to: http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K53U&os=30
  13. Scroll to and select utilities.
  14. Look for version V3.1.1, Description: WebCam Utility.
  15. Click the Global ling with the green disc on the left hand side.
  16. Once downloaded, open and install.
Hopefully that solves the problem.

The camera on my laptop does not work


First uninstall the older device drivers and then install the latest device drivers. You can also download the latest webcam drivers from the internet and install the new device drivers.

Now go to manufacture site & in the download option, select your model number.
After selecting the laptop model number from site, click on 'Software & Drivers Downloads'.
Now you need to choose your operating system & select the given updates & follow all instructions to download it.
After complete download, install supported driver for your laptop webcam. After install driver, reboot your laptop again and check that your webcam is working properly or not.
I hope it will fix your webcam not working issue if laptop is not facing any hardware issue.

I NEED MY WEBCAM WORKING IN LENOVO N500 WINDOWS 7


You need to enable the webcam by pressing Fn+Esc or Fn+F10 key combination. Also see if you can find the latest version of drivers on the lenovo support website for Windows 7 or at least Windows Vista. If it still doesnt get detected at least in device manager, try flashing the system BIOS to the latest version available on lenovo support website.

How do activate the webcam on this acer laptop it says it has one built into it but i cant get to come up


Acer uses its own program called Crystal Eye to run its webcam. If you don't have it, go to Toshiba support drivers and put your model of laptop in the search box and then pick your operating system and it will give you a menu of the available drivers and applications for your system. You need this program to work the integrated webcam.

External graphic card


no, if your notebook has onboard graphics, you can only benefit by fitting more memory, so as the notebook can use the 64mb maximum without stalling your notebook, but the graphics will be no better, unless you have a corrupt driver, you will need to visit the notebooks manufacturer web site for any updates.
