Built in webcam e525 doesn't show up in control panel

I bought the e525 today, and i cannot get the inbuilt webcam to work. It doesn't even show up in properties, installed and uninstalled 3 different webcam drivers, suyin, crystal eye and chicony and neither have worked. The suyin driver when installed and started says webcam not found. crystal eye and chicony install but when i start the program it doesnt start up, i have tried unistalling and reinstalling but still nothing. And yes i have uninstalled the previous driver before trying a new one. Nothing helps. I have used the emachines recommended drivers and they don't work. This computer is a present for my teenage daughter and i specifically bought it because of the inbuilt webcam but it just doesnt seem to work

First : You have to check if the camera driver is installed on your device,you can do that by going to Start Menu then go to Control Panel then find the icon called System then open it then go to Device Manager then check there and look for Camera ,then right click on it then Properties then update driver

I have a Emachines laptop with Windows 7 home x64. It has a built in webcam but does not work. It shows it's working properly in device manager.


Device Manager truly shows if it is installed correctly. Whether it works or not is a different matter. You need software to run the camera.

There is no control panel for the inbuilt webcam-101 on my win7 HP.


The first thing to check there is that, did your HP system has an in built web cam? if the answer is Yes. Then, double click on my computer, click on Hard disk drive (Usually label c;) then click on windows, then click on system 32, you will get to a folder named "Driver store". Then click on it search for your webcam driver there and update it. Your webcam will definitely work well. but if any problem persist mail greatengineerid@hotmail.com or call +234-8023821869.

Cheers.

The inbuilt webcam on my brand new zoostorm laptop is not working it is not recognising it in devices even though i am staring at it!!!!! very frustrating. The laptop came with windows 7


Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today. Webcams and Windows 7 are the source of a lot of confusion. There is no built-in viewer for WebCam in Windows 7!

The webcam will not normally show up on the "Devices and Printers" page. But look at "Device Manager" and click on Imaging devices. You should see it there. If it is not there then you have a different problem.

If it appeared in Device Manager and you want to see the camera work, you need to test it with a program that will use the cam. Yahoo Mesenger will allow you to see your cam in action.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today. Don't forget to vote. 4 thumbs up please.

My emachines E525 notebook has uninstalled my built in webcam how would i reinstall the webcam program


Hello,
You need the driver CD provided when you bought the laptop.
In case you cannot find it..
Refer to this link to download the driver. There are 4 models of the camera in that model. you may try each of the driver.
Thanks

I have an acer emachine e 525 and it definitely has a built in webcam. i just can't use it. i don't know how. help!


Try this address: http://support.emachines.com/em/driver/nb/e525.html - Just cut and paste into your browser. All I found was a quick start manual which wasn't very helpful. But, depending on your OS, there are drivers for the webcam.If this helps rate me please,thanks. Good luck.
