Preview capture may appear black or in some cases, the preview capture may not appear at all.
To fix this:
- Unplug the webcam while its showing the black screen, wait a couple seconds and plug it back in.
- Or -
Lower the video resolution.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.

Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ )
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

What can i do to fix the Acer Aspire BlackScreen Problem for the internal Screen?


Screen problems on laptops come down to three issues. Most common is the inverter, next is the cable that connects the screen to the motherboard and last is the motherboard. If you can see the image on the screen with a flashlight, it is not the cable or the motherboard.

You could have a faulty CCFL lamp that provides the back light.
If you view the LCD screen at a sharp angle and you can see a dim Windows image. Also if you connect an external monitor to the laptops VGA port power up the external monitor then boot up the laptop and you get a normal Windows image on the monitor, then it is a faulty CCFL lamp.
Replacement CCFL lamps are available from this WEB site.

It could be that your webcam driver is not installed or just you forgot to remove the cover of your webcam. Some webcam has slides to uncover the lens. Hope this helps.

Download and install this software (Device Doctor Free). Once it's installed, run the program and click "Begin Scan", wait for few seconds until the scan completes and search the scan result for the camera driver, just any driver listed with a name related to camera should be the camera's driver. I also am not very sure, but you may search for Bison or Suyin camera driver..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

ATI Graphics error


Looks like you've got a virus while playing, though that only would happen if your running an illegal copy of the game.

Otherwise while the game hanged, and you inevitably rebooted, the card drivers were damaged and erased from the hard drive. You might be now in low resolution standard VGA that's activated by windows when the drivers fail.

You should be able to still access internet explorer to browse the internet, from there you'll need to go to www.ati.com to download the most recent drivers for your card and reinstall them.
