Unplug your webcam. uninstall the driver. reboot your computer and then install webcam driver. Now reboot your PC and after reboot plugin your webcam. A window will appear trying to install the webcam driver. Select the first option "find the best driver (recommended)" of driver installation. Once installed it never ask you for driver unless you change the usb port.

    If it's builtin then try this:

    Open msn messenger and click from Option "Audio and Video setup wizard" and try to find out the hardware of your webcam (i think its using the same sound driver of your sound chip for your webcam).

I need free software for webcam


The webcam usually comes with instructions on how to connect it to a computer and are usually connected vial a USB 2 plug. If you know the make of the Webcam you can search the Internet for the company and, hopefully you will download their software.

When i try to view my webcam its says webcam is not found.


Hi,

I suggest try to isolate the problem first for your webcam to check if its hardware or software problem. Try to reinstall the Driver for your Webcam. If that does not work try to reinstall the Operating System to make it more faster to isolate if its hardware or software. But most likely the message "webcam is not found" its already a hardware but just to make sure that its a hardware to those steps.

Hope I help you somehow. =)

My computer continues to say webcam not found


Receiving an error message when trying to access your webcam can be frustrating, but the problem can often be resolved by doing some basic troubleshooting.



  • If you have an external webcam, check to see if it has become accidentally unplugged from your computer.
  • Perhaps another program is using your webcam. Close other programs and try accessing your webcam again.
  • If another program has crashed for some reason, it might not have released your webcam successfully. Try closing all programs and restarting your computer.
  • If you have an external webcam, it might not have installed correctly. Try reinstalling your webcam software program according to the manufacturer's instructions. For more information, go to How do I reinstall my webcam?
  • Perhaps Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device on your computer. Try changing the camera source. For more information, go to How do I change my camera source?
  • Your webcam might not be configured correctly. Try reconfiguring your webcam according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Your camera might not be not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger you can verify this by using the webcam compatibility test. To try the webcam compatibility test, go to How can I tell if my webcam will work withYahoo! Messenger?

Averatec 2500 Series Webcam Not Working


Try uninstalling the webcam restart your computer,reinstall the webcam with the single original driver WITHOUT any updates.If that does'nt fix it, the webcam may have went out or a sevice may have been turned off somehow.Sounds like the webcam went out or has become disconnected in some way or a corrupted driver.Also remember to, VISTA sucks

click here

type the letters in the left side and then download the file

to be honest im not sure if these are the drivers for your camera but i downloaded them to my computer and i am sure they are files for camera (i checked them to be sure there are no viruses in there).

so download and see yourself if they are helpful

i hope so

by the way say hi to your husband and (if the cam is fixed) tell your husband an Iraqi man fixed it for you ;)

Acer Extensa 5420-5687 Crystal Eye webcam


I had the same problem with the Extensa 5420-5687 as well, I went to the device manager and found my crystal eye webcam (there was a yellow exclaimation point on it) I tried to update the driver software by having it search automatically for the software, but it just said that it was up to date...that still didnt fix my problem. So i tried browsing my computer for the driver. I picked "let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer" I then clicked on "Acer crystal eye webcam" then i hit next, it then installed the updated driver. After that my webcam worked again!
