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.
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.
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
According to what you've told so far it's gong to be software problem. I had such thing with my dv6000 when webcam and microphone stopped working for no reason. So to solve the problem CLICK HERE, select your operating system, download the webcam drivers and reinstall them.
