Suggest you go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down through the installed programs to see what the camera app is actually called, then search for that name in the "Search" box that pops up after you click on the Start menu (before you click All Programs).
i have the same problem and acer arent very good wither they just told me to ring a number is your laptop on windows 7 as well becuase its frustrating me very badly. >:/ have you found a solution if so let me know
i think there is two cause 1/ your camera 's driver is not stall properly re install it. 2 there is not install usb 2.0 driver. which support usb hardware as usb camer /usb modeam etc . 3/ your camera now out of work ---thanks
Follow these steps to re-install the driver for the webcam. You will
need to be logged in as an Administrator or have an Administrator
password ready.1. Click the Windows Start button. 2. Click Control Panel, System and Maintenance and then Device Manager. 3. Right-click on Chicony USB 2.0 Camera and select Update Driver Software.
A yellow exclamation point indicates that the camera is recognized by
Windows but is not working properly, probably because of problem with
the device driver 4. Select Browse my computer for the driver software. 5. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer. 6. Select USB Video Device from the list, and click Next. 7. If the message “Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device” appears, click Close. 8. Restart Windows. The webcam should now work properly
I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.
Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager
Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"
First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software"
but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my
Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I
updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I
think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and
that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
