    Please mention the make and model of the Computer and the installed Operating System too. This will help me to provide you with the perfect resolution. As of now, if you're running Windows Operating System on the Computer then you may check in the Device manager under the "Imaging Devices" category whether the web cam driver is listed. If the web cam driver is listed then right click on it and Uninstall it. Then restart the Computer. Again open the Device Manager and click on the Action menu then click on the submenu "scan for Hardware changes". This will automatically install the web cam driver if the driver copy available in the Computer is not corrupt.

Can't activate webcam in livejasmin


Hello,

Built in web cam? Does the web cam work with the software e.g. - Microsoft life cam? If does not work at all could be out, get an external USB web cam. Could be a driver, could be the site or site settings.

I hope this helps.

Hi there, please follow the steps.

1. Double click my computer then double click USB Video Device. You
can see your self then. If the USB Video Device not showing there then
you have to install the cam first.
2. Power On the laptop & after ready your OS for work just put your Dell driver DVD in DVD RW/ROM. when its open, that time just select webcam driver and install it as per your operating system. Usually Dell user's are install Broadcom driver for webcam.
So do it and after finish restart the laptop. Your will see your cam is ready for use. Then follow the first instruction.

My webcam stopped working all of a sudden. i used to yesterday and now it wont even open. what do i do?


Webcams are flaky, esp when using yahoo. Off the top of my head, I dont recall if your pc has a built in internal cam. A good thing to try is simply rebooting the PC and restarting the webcam. If that doesnt help, check the cam manufacturers site to see if the driver needs to be updated. Lastly, it might not be the cam after all. It could be the program that's using the cam, such as yahoo or MSN or whoever. Restart the machine first (thats likely gonna fix it), but if it still fails, try using the windows camera scanner option to snap a pic. If you can snap a pic, the hardware is ok, and you have a software issue. If however you try all of these things and still have failure, then you could have a bad USB cord (external cam) or a bad camera cable (internal built in cam). If you are under warranty, call Dell to have a tec sent out to replace your internal cam.

i would go to acer.com and reinstall the built in webcam. I would also go into start, right click my computer, click properties, go into the hardware tab, click device manager and see if there is any yellow shields. that means u need to reinstall the driver. if there isnt i would check the source in the camera software

Acer's built in webcam


Take your laptop to your local computer repair shop, as it will take too long to explain a solution.
Good Luck.

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


Hi,

This is known Webcam issue in DV6000 notebooks. To resolve or narrow down the issue, we have to check few things.

First open Device Manager.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.

Expand + Imagining Devices and check if the HP Webcam is listed under it.

If Webcam is not listed there, then you have to contact HP to get the BIOS update.

If it is listed there, right click on it and select Disable. Again right click on it and select Enable.

Now open any applications like Quickplay and check if Webcam is working or not.

Please reply me if that won't resolve the issue, I can provide more work arounds
