I use acer aspire 4551 and window 7 and my webcam not working.i cannot install driver because it said the devices is unrecognize.in devices manager not show imaging devices hardware.and only show unknown...


I went to the ACER website for your machine. It seems that there isn't really a "driver" per se associated with the webcam. There is a webcam application that must be installed however. Interestingly enough, there are three different applications available, as there appears to be three possible vendors for the webcam. It is possible you are trying to load the application program for a different vendor than your machine has.

Cut and paste the URL below into you web browser. Select the applcaitions tab. Download all three applications and see if one of them will load and recognize your webcam. Hope this helps!

Webcam no working


1. Check if the webcam driver is installed. go to Device Manager, if your computr have Vista/7 you can type "Device Manager" in the start search box in the start menu and click on Device Manager in the results list at the top. If you have XP, right click on the "My Computer" icon then Properties, from the System Properties windows go to the "Hardware" tab then from there click on the Device Manager button.

2. Once Device Manager is open, look for "Imaging Devices" click on the small + sign to expand the view and check if your webcam is listed there, if it doesn't come up or if it does and have a red "X" on it, we will need to reinstall the driver to fix it.

3. Most HP/Compaq notebook computers have a "Recovery" partition. We can reinstall all bundled programs and drivers from there. For Vista/7, type "Recovery Manager" in the search box, for XP look for the Recovery Manager in the Programs Menu.

4. When the Recovery Manager program loads, select "Hardware/Driver Reinstallation". A list of all drivers will be listed, look for the webcam driver. Follow the on screen instructions for installation.

5. When installation finishes, the computer might restart automatically or if it doesn't restart the computer.

6. Test the webcam.


Hope this help.

No sound on my Arcsoft webcam Companion on my BenQ


You mean the webcam mic is not working?
First try reinstalling the webcam driver, to make sure the mic device is installed. Then check the sound recording settings in the device manager, and make sure the webcam mic is the default device. Also check the recording levels.
Lastly, in the program you are using, also check the recording settings as they may override the default settings.
More ideas here.

I have an HP notebook w/ built-in webcam, it doesn't turn on.


If it does not show on the accessories of the start menu, check the Programs and Features of the Control Panel and see if it has not been uninstalled mistakenly. But if it is there, may be it has hidden some where.

But to put everything back in order, you need to do a system restore using the Recovery Manager, so that all the setting on your laptop would go back to its default.

You will find Recovery Manager in All Programs of the Start Menu.

Take care.

Can't locate driver packet for my webcam. what is the designation that I should look for? I lost the webcam when my laptop had to have Vista re-installed.


Hi,

The first thing is that how did you format the computer ?
if you used the recovery manager of the factory shipped recovery media then we can get the drivers back

however, if you formatted the computer with a retail version of the OS then we have to download the drivers from
www.hp.com/support
which may or may not work

Else here are the steps

go to device manager ? the webcam driver should be listed under imaging devices or HID devices. right click and uninstall it
now reinstall it from the recovery manager > advance options > hardware driver reinstallation > select and install.

if it does not work then go to device manager and uninstall all the USB root hubs under USB devices

Do a Bios default.

check with the factory shipped software ( quick play / HP media smart )
