Question about LG X-Note LM50 Notebook

2 Answers

It's actually an LG E500

I can't get my LG Smartcam to work. It worked before but Vista was so unstable that I reinstalled it. Now the cam just doesn't work even though I reinstalled it twice. Any ideas?

    I installed XP on my LG E500, when I open the LG Smartcam pogram, the program opens and I get a error message "unable to write to c:\users\public\test.ini". Program stays open but nothing happens.

Simply press Fn+F10 - this enables/disables the device. It works fine on XP

LG e500 smart cam doesn't work anymore

Thanks a lot for posting this.
Today my LG E500's Smart cam also stopped working after my battery was down too much. Didn't know what to do. And I didn't know about this Fn+F10 combination for the webcam.
My webcam works now after activating it by Fn+F10. However, I don't know what made it stop functioning.

Sho91-smart cam

I bought an LGE50 (E500) notebook 4 months ago and 2 days ago I finally got around to trying out the camera (SmartCam) only to find that it didn't work. It has the original Vista OS that it came with and I've installed MS Office 2007. I tried pressing the Fn and F10 keys simultaneously and also putting it in sleep mode and logging in again but both without success. Yesterday I rang LG service and they told me to: shut down, remove battery, wait 1 minute, plug in power supply only (not battery), turn on, enter into the bios settings upon boot up, select "default" settings, continue boot up then shut down, install battery and boot up in the normal manner. Hey presto! I have SmartCam working!
