I installed win7 but webcam icon is missing


Try the following tips to see if you can get the Desktop icon back.

1. Right click the desktop
2. Select View -> Show Desktop Icon
3. Make sure the option is checked.

If this does not work, then you can try and go into the installation directory for your webcam software. For example, when you install the Webcam software, it may be installed in C:\program files\webcam brand name

In the installation folder you should have a .EXE file. If you right click on the .EXE file you can then select "Send To" then select "Desktop(shortcut).

You can also use this method by going to Start > then in the search box type the name of your webcam and you should get a list showing your webcam program. You can right click this and create a desktop icon as well.

Comment back if you have any questions.

DMy laptop was taken back to factory settings and I have lost the Icon for the webcam

if you don't have any of your startup discs that came with your laptop than i suggest going to the 'start' menu/ control panel/administrative tools/computer management (double click). you should see an icon on the far left explorer space that reads "device manager". from there try and find your webcam device. if located and you don't see an asterisk "!" on it, you may just need a program to launch it and you can usually find those online by google-ing 'Webcam Software Freeware". if ther is an asterisk, you will need to double click the device and a window will popup detailing the device's status. you should be connected to the internet at this time in order to update or find the driver. once that is complete, you may or may not need a program to launch the webcam.

BAM, there's a snake in mah boots.

Acer crystal eye webcam icon lost and can't be found

The fastest way of fixing it just reinstalling the driver. here's the link

After you download it and run it. It would probably tell you If you want to uninstall instead of install. Uninstall, restart the computer and run the software again to reinstall. It should fix your issue. I hope this helps.

The web cam does not work at all on either the quick viiew software although we have downloaded the driver it is not found

Activating the webcam
The drivers for the webcam are pre-installed and an HP Webcam 1000 icon displays on the desktop. Double-click on the icon to activate the webcam. The blue light illuminated next to the webcam lens, just above the LCD screen, indicates the webcam is on.

If double-clicking on the icon does not activate the webcam, do the following activities:

Click Start, then right-click on My Computer, and then select Properties.

On the My Computer properties window, click on the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
Click on the plus ( +) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.
If the webcam is not listed, do the following activities to install the driver using the webcam driver recovery.
Click Start, click All Programs, click PC Help & Tools, and then click HP Application Recovery.
Select Driver installation and click Next.
Select the HP Webcam 1000 driver from the list, and click Install.
If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the icon, the webcam is disabled. See figure below.
Figure 1: Disabled Webcam Icon

To enable the webcam, right-click the HP WebCam 1000 icon and click Enable. The webcam icon should display on the Desktop.
Alternate locations for the webcam icon
If the webcam is installed but the icon is not displayed on the desktop, look for the webcam icon in one of these alternate locations.
Click Start, and click My Computer. The webcam icon should be displayed with the other devices. See figure below.
Click Start, and click Control Panel , and then click Scanners and Cameras. The webcam icon should be displayed with the other devices.
The HP Webcam 1000 does not install a listing under any of the All Programs menu.
Using the Webcam Diagnostic Test
To ensure the webcam is operating, do the following activities:
Right-click on the WebCam icon, and then select Properties.
Click on Test Camera under Diagnostics on the General tab.
The test should only take a few moments, but allow the test to complete operations by itself.
The result of the test, either “passed” or “failed”, will be displayed.

After I reformated the computer, the webcam Icon is not there anymore. I could not fine the camera assistance software - maybe lost it. What can I do to get the webcam back to work?

Go to the Manufacturer's Support Website and you should find what you need there along with the updates for your system as well.. You did not specify what system you have. Or I could have directed you to the proper Webpage myself. Good Luck!!
