Want to disconnect the crystal eye webcam


Hi, having just fixed a non working Acer webcam on a laptop, I suggest trying the following to disable the inbuilt webcam...

Go to control panel, open system devices, go to imaging devices, find Acer webcam, open properties tab and then disable device using the disable button. Alternatively, uninstall the driver and the camera will not work. Best to disable should you ever need to use again.

Hope this helps, rgds, Dave

My webcam will not work


When you go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers, do you see an webcam icon? It probably won't say HP Webcam but more likely "USB Composite Device". If it isn't there, you'll need to install driver software for the webcam to function. If it is there then right click the icon, click on Properties and look at the General and Hardware tabs to make sure you see HP Webcam in there. You may also want to check to see if it states that the "device is working properly".

Microphone not working


Go into the sound properties in your control panel and then head into the recording tab. Make sure that the correct recording device is selected. At the bottom there should be a configure or set up button. Once you go through that wizard, it should be set up.

Also some programs allow you to choose which microphone to use, so go into the settings of the software and make sure the correct recording device is selected.

Have a great day.

Broadcast issue


Go to start/control panel/system/device manager/check and see if any have a yellow mark on them this means drivers are faulty or not loaded properly right click/properties when in properties delete driver and/or upgrade
One other thing to try is go to c:\ right click properties go to tools/check now/when box pops up tick automatically fix errors
Reboot sometimes windows registry and system files are mixed up and can cause errors
