Try installing an updated driver for your webcam and updated driver for the video card for your laptop. go to driverguide.com and register then search for drivers. or you can go to the manufacturers website of your laptop and search for the software drivers.

Can't activate webcam in livejasmin


Hello,

Built in web cam? Does the web cam work with the software e.g. - Microsoft life cam? If does not work at all could be out, get an external USB web cam. Could be a driver, could be the site or site settings.

I hope this helps.

Why doesn'tmy built in web cam not work


Possible that the drivers to the webcam was removed/ has errors or that the web cam hardware has failed.
Now you can try and reinstall the drivers once again, you can also open control panel>device manager and check on the web cam driver or reinstall.
If not the web cam can be faulty or there can be problems in the wiring to the webcam or a fault in the motherboard.

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


Hi,

This is known Webcam issue in DV6000 notebooks. To resolve or narrow down the issue, we have to check few things.

First open Device Manager.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.

Expand + Imagining Devices and check if the HP Webcam is listed under it.

If Webcam is not listed there, then you have to contact HP to get the BIOS update.

If it is listed there, right click on it and select Disable. Again right click on it and select Enable.

Now open any applications like Quickplay and check if Webcam is working or not.

Please reply me if that won't resolve the issue, I can provide more work arounds

Aspire 5720 cam not working


In saying this I may sound more like a little devil instead of the angel you're looking for. Go get an external web cam. This will be much easier than the headache you will have with the Acer built in. There are more problems with Acer's built in web cam than any other device on the market, and it's nor just limited to one or two models, it's every model. They actually released their Aspire 5000 series to the public, Vista only, before they had Vista compatible web cam drivers. The problem isn't with the cam itself, it's with the drivers and software that it needs in order to work properly. The software/drivers glitch and conflict with other components in the system. Every driver, software application, update, patch and fix are temporary and therefore worthless. Every time you get it back up and running, eventually it will (out of the blue) crash again, and what worked before to fix it may not work the next time. It's extremely frustrating, I know. Ive tried everything to get these up and working properly for my customers, and I've found that currently, until they come up with better drivers, the only true fix is an external. I'm sorry, I know this isn't what you want to hear, but unfortunately there is no ctrl+shift+miricle key cure at this time.

Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
