Sir ihave laptop of ACER aspire 5552-5686 with window7 os my web camera of laptop does not work how it works give me tips.


Web cameras won't turn on until a program accesses them. Most laptops with a built in web cam come with software to take pictures and video.

Try clicking on the windows icon (start menu) and typing "cam" into the search bar. This should bring up the web camera application to test and make sure it is working. You could also use an application like skype or a website that allows live camera uploads like youtube (account required).

If this doesn't work, make sure there is a driver properly installed and the hardware is working in device manager (control panel > system & security > device manager tab).

Please leave feedback if this was helpful.

Hi!

You can connect it to the USB 2.0 port on your laptop. The slot should look like this:

If you have not installed the device driver, please do so to be able to use the web cam with your computer.

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.

Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager

Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"

First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
