TECHNICAL PROBLEM WITH MY WEBCAM.

HEY SORRY TO BOTHER... BUT IM GOING NUTS WITH THIS PROBLEM. I HAVE AN GATEWAY LAPTOP PC AND IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A WEBCAM, BUT I DONT KNOW WHY IS NOT WORKING.

ITS SAID SOMETHING ABOUT: GRAPHIC RENDER FAIL OR SOMETHING...

THE WEB CAM IS INTEGRATED IN THE LAPTOP SO I DONT HAVE TO INSTALL NOTHING I THINK... PLEASE HELP ME. IF U NEED FURTHER DETAILS ABOUT THE WEBCAM LET ME KNOW.

AND JUST FOR THE RECORD, THE PRODUCT THAT I PUT IS NOT THE ONE THAT I HAVE... BUT I PUT THAT ONE BECAUSE MINE IS NOT ON THE LIST AND SAID IT WAS NOT VALID.

UP ON THE SCREEN. wHAT DOES THIS MEAN AND WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT.

    I have a gateway lap top with a web cam. It worked fine since I bought it in Nov but today, April 6 it didn't work. When I tried to start the web cam I got a graph render fail message. Any idea what that means or how to fix it?

    Thanks,

    Rick

You've got graphic rendering problem bcos, the webcam drivers installed in your laptop don't work correctly. ie) the driver installed forces your webcam to take a snapshot at a resolution that is not supported by the webcam hardware...So, tell me ur laptop model number and I'll let u know abt the drivers....

I sent my computer to get fixed, but when i got it back my webcam wasnt working. i dont know if im supposed to install it myself, or take it back? my laptop is Acer Notebook Aspire 6930 Crystal Eye. Help?


Hi,
You need to install a new driver for the webcam.
Just go to the laptop's manufacturer site or if you have the cd, and download the webcam driver, unzip it afterwards.
Hope that helped you out!

It says that the acer 5534 comes with a built in webcam. I do not know how to activate it. And no im not stupid. I work for microsoft. Please help. Sorry for spelling.


I am glad to HELP YOU!

Go START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACER CRYSTAL EYE WEBCAM and select it. Click on ACER CRYSTAL EYE WEBCAM and that should activate the webcam.
Once the webcam is active you will see an icon displayed in the TASKBAR.

Anyway, using any communication/chat/social software like Yahoo!Messenger or Skype or whatever that requires a webcam connection it will open automatically once the video conversation is on.

GOOD LUCK!
... and don't forget to RATE, please...

I got this computer about a month ago and I can not figure out how to use the webcam


On my Gateway laptop I have a small icon at the bottom right hand corner of the screen. I click on it and Hey Presto, webcam operational. Maybe yours has something like that. Good luck.

I have a gateway laptop with built in webcam but can't figure out how to turn it on. Any suggestions?


try locating it in "All Programs" in Vista.If it is not found in Acessorries or extras,then check whether it is installed in "Control Panel->System->Device Manager".If it is installed,then when you switch on any webcam program or IM,clicking webcam/video chat will switch it ON.

Well my laptop is advent and i have a built in webcam , its kind of broke but im looking to go on msn messanger to go on video calls with them and it wont let me because its broke so can you help me ?


If the webcam is broken, then if your laptop is under warranty period have it replaced.
If not then you will have to buy a usb webcam.
Broken Webcam for laptops are preety hard to fix at home. They might get fix at service stations.
Sorry mate not much of help here.
