Question about Gateway MT3705 Notebook

2 Answers

I cannot get my webcam to open on my new gateway NV52 laptop. When I went into program search I found a folder that said WEBCAM. It ask me to install, I installed. Then retarted the computer. I did after that, get a drop down toolbar for webcam at the top of my screen but when I clicked on it to open it, it said CAM was locked by another application. Please help!

I had the same problem, so I deleted a bunch of applications like Messenger and Skype that also use the webcam but that didn't work. Finally, I deleted something called Windows 7 codecs and my webcam started working again. If you happen to have that program on your computer--delete it; otherwise, keep looking for the culprit. It took me about three days of messing around to nail it.

Cant re install built in webcam after installing new hard drive


When you went to the Gateway website and downloaded drivers, did you notice that under drivers there was nothing for the webcam? Use this link and download the webcam application under Applications tab. The driver is included in the application.

Download and reinstall the webcam driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "ASUS Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Webcam drivers.




You have to open the webcam software to activate or start the webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. The webcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs then search for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam might be inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search the folders for it. Some manufacturers have something like Entertainment Experience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as the dvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch it then click on the webcam or camera icon.

Try using ManyCam

You can always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your webcam software is.

I've got gateway nv52 with Win vista ultimate, I download the driver for the webcam from the gateway website but still not working and says webcam not found!! I even scan for hardware changes in device...


does the webcam show up in device manager with a yellow exclaimation mark? If it isn't in there at all, I wonder if it can be disabled in the BIOS perhaps?

How do i reinstal my camera toolbar on my m series gateway laptop my web cam works but cant find my tool bar do i need to download anything again


I suspect the webcam toolbar program is not gone, just not obvious as to where it is.

Go to Start > All Programs and scan down the list for a folder relating to your webcam. In it will be something similar to Webcam Console or Webcam manager. It may be in a Gateway folder. Once found, Click on the program and you should have your toolbar back.

If you want a short-cut for it on your desktop, when you find it in All Programs, right click on it and choose Send To and choose Desktop.
