The camera requires specific drivers to be installed in order to work
when the guy reinstalled windows he did not install drivers for the camera
you can download the camera drivers from the acer website for free

I need to reinstall windows xp home edition i have the product code but no disk


I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck

On conecting with pc system is not detecting it


First make sure that your USB port on your computer is working by testing a different device to see if your computer can detect it.
Second plug in your camera, turn it on and put it in review mode.
If your computer still isn't seeing the camera then try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers which should have come on a CD in the box with the camera.

Once this is cleared restart and then connect the camera once again to check if this is detected. If not try with another PC to confirm if the fault is with the camera or the PC.

I can not install under windows 7


Unfortunately, Logitech has chosen not to support this camera under Windows Vista or Windows 7. Thus there are no current drivers for Win7. There is a way to install your camera if you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate: install the XP mode (a virtual computer). Install the camera to the virtual computer. You may need to save the files to an external media to share them between the two "machines".

I hope this helps.

My audio is not working on my web cam


Hi.

Try first going to Control Panel, then locating Audio Properties.

In there ensure that the default Audio Input device is set to the webcam, and that the microphone is not muted.

Test the camera Audio using Windows , or using the camera dedicated software. Many programs like Messengers, Skype etc. have their own options for Audio.
If you have the problem when using a software, ensure that the software settings are correct.

If none of the above is fixing the problem, try removing the camera from installed hardware list, disconnect camera USB, and reinstall camera drivers.
Restart computer and connect back the camera only when asked, or after reinstalling software and restarting.


Regards.

Hi,

Here you go....!

  1. Press ‘Alt + F10' to start eRecovery Management.
  2. Enter default password of 6 zero's. Example: 000000
    (Note: if this default password does not work, then a different password has taken its place. Acer is not responsible for any forgotten or misplaced passwords.)
  3. Select ‘Recovery Actions' and click ‘Next'
  4. Select ‘Reinstall Applications/drivers' and click ‘Next'
  5. On the left hand side of the newly opened window select the following: Windows XP
    ? Driver
    ?Camera
  6. On the right side of the same window, click ‘Install Camera Driver Now'
  7. The unit will reboot after the installation is complete.
Cheers

Lenovo Y410 Integrated webcam not working


If the Y410 is like my Y510 then it is possibly one of two things.

1. If the computer goes into "sleep" mode, the camera may not come back online when it wakes up. A restart will obviously fix this.

2. Does your keyboard have a Fn key assigned to the ESC key that will toggle the camera ON/OFF? If so, give that a try.
