Make sure all the latest drivers are installed and you have updated your windows operating system. If this doesn't work then you can try uninstalling the device from computer manager and reinstall it using manufacturers .exe.

Cannot get skype camera to come on on an existing account


I can't get my webcam to work

1. Check that your webcam is switched on and plugged into your computer

2. A webcam can only be used by one application at a time, so make sure you don't have any other applications open that are accessing the webcam, e.g. other instant messaging applications or even some websites.

3. Problems with video are often caused by driver issues. A driver is the program you install with the webcam which makes the webcam work with your computer (some webcams use preinstalled drivers so you may not have had to install one). Make sure you have the latest driver installed. You can download and install the most recent drivers from the webcam manufacturer's website.

To test your webcam go to the Skype menu > Preferences > Video and tick the box Enable Skype Video. When Skype is able to use your webcam, you will see a video preview of yourself.

How to reset wireless keyboards and mice


A wireless system consists of a receiver plugged to the USB port of the computer, a mouse and a keyboard. The function of the receiver is to "listen" to the signals sent by keyboard and mouse. As there might be other wireless equipment operating within range of the receiver, ALL systems, independent of brand, have many different channels in which they can operate, without interfering with other devices. The mouse and the keyboard, separately, have to know which channel the receiver is working on, in order to transmit on that particular channel.
Most system failures (other than depleted batteries) can be attributed to the receiver " listening" to a different channel than the mouse/keyboards are transmitting on.
Resetting the system, to work on the same channel, may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but basically all work with a button on the receiver that changes / resets the operating channel, and within a short period of time, similar buttons on the back of mice and keyboards that must be activated in order to "learn" the new channel set by the receiver.

Interior lights, moon roof and windows don't work. Changed fuses many times and they kept blowing out.


Why would you change a fuse more than once?

Don't you know what a fuse is for?

If it blows out even once,you have a higher
current load than the fuse is rated at, or a
short to ground

Have the items that don't work correctly ,
diagnosed & repaired.

Hi, i have a ASUS A6R series and i deleted my webcam by mistake, i dont know how to get it back and what kind it was. is there any possible way to get it back. any information would be helpfull.


Hello nikki_silver,
The best thing to do in this situation is a System Restore.

To perform a "System Restore.
" Follow these instructions carefully, and you will have no problem at all.
The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button,paul7of9_50.jpg" from the Desktop.
Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find "Accessories," next select the "System Tools.
" You will see in the next window that open, "System Restore!

paul7of9_51.jpg

"Now this is very important!
Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut" it will start to look for the last known time of a change in your computer.
The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run, so be patient.
"Do not try to do any type of work, don't even touch the keyboard for any reason,
just let it run!"
Once the System Restore finds the correct "Date and Time"of the event;
choose the Date closest to the time of the occurrence.

In your case it will be the deletion of the "Webcam."

.paul7of9_53.jpg

Now once again, there will be a message telling you not to do anything with the computer,
and please don't.
The System Restore will "run" for a while, so once again be patient.

paul7of9_52.jpg

The computer will then "Shutdown and Restart."
Lo-gin if you have to; but!
Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop window open, because System Restore is still running.
Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the Restore of your System was successful!

Take your time.
"I hope all goes well, please let me know if you need further assistant.
Best Regards.
Thanks for using Fix'Ya."

As soon as I switch my Philips SPC 620NC WebCam on, my PC shuts down. I use Windows XP service pack 2.


I have a similar error with my Logitech webcam. In order for me to use it, I must plug it in and turn it on before the computer even boots up, which is my solution for now.
If I turn it on while the computer is already running, it gives me the blue screen and shuts off.
This is because there is a program or application running in the background that does not comply with your webcam, causing Windows to get confused and crash/turn off your computer.
Try plugging in/turning on before you start your computer. Hope this works!

1- make sure the webcam driver was install properly. Type devmgmt.msc at run. Look at the imaging device.
2- If its not install yet, just go to the site and download ur acer webcam then install.
3- If already configure, try uninstall then restart. Check whether usable or not. If cant, download new driver from the site , uninstall the old one and install with new one.
4- There got a lot of choice of webcam driver. better u download all and try one by one.
Or just let me know what kind of acer dat u use?

Damaged the connection in the 12v car power to the c550. result was some fine brass fingers bent. The c550 will not switch on even though I know it is fully charged.How can I check if the c550 is still in...


You may have shorted out the battery. Have you tried pluggin the USB cable into the computer? If not, try this. The unit should turn on. If it doesn't, your battery may be damaged.
