Re: camera issues

Switch off the Acer Video application in your taskbar. That solves the problem for me sometimes.

Re: camera issues

Even when you remove a driver some of the problem remains. Removing drivers is important when you do so through the control Panel ADD/Remove software.
You must then make certain that all applications that were installed were all removed as well! In addition compatibility issue. All cameras do not work on all PCs.

I have LifeFrame application for the use of the webcam in ASUS Notebook, but when I try to use it in another application it says the camera is inactive/been used. When I close LifeFrame, the camera turns...

The camera should be available to be used without LifeFrame. See if there any options in Options (or Preferences) at the LifeFrame software, where you can choose if the camera should be used with it. If you can't figure it out, contact LifeFrame tech support, they should be able to help you with the setup. Or if you don't find a solution, uninstall the software and just use windows to administer the camera.
