You would need the external webcam- most use USB, and if you are limited in how many ports you have- you can purchase an USB hub to extend the number of ports. As far as drivers, any reputable manufacturer will include the drivers as a minimum, and usually will include the software you can use with your webcam.

Many users have problems with web cams. Press the designated button to turn on your camera. If you are using an external camera, use a compatible USB cable to connect the camera to the USB port of your computer.

Visit a website that allows you to test your webcam online.
Next try this.
Click the "Allow" button from the flash player settings window. You should now see live video footage from your web camera. If you don't see live video, your web camera is not working properly.
To reinstall the drivers try this. Right click on My Computer-> Properties -> Device manager -> Imaging Devices -? Webcam. Right click on the webcam and uninstall it. This will cause the computer to reinstall the drivers and software. Restart the computer and hopefully your problem will be fixed.

this is a website where you can find drivers for you kav60:

Windows 7 should automatically install device drivers for the Audio, Video and Network, If you are unable to find/download a device driver that works on your computer and your computer is connected to the Internet then - 1. Remove the driver that isn't working if it was installed.
2. Set Win-7 "Windows Device Installation" to 'AUTO'
3. Windows will automatically search the internet for the driver.
4. Reboot your computer.

Hi Ian,

The Camera is fact Liteon, and your using sunyin driver to operate it, is that correct?

If so, WHY?

Apropriate and recommended drivers for specific hardware, else things go BELLY_UP!!!!

Try installing the recommended drivers for your Liteon camera.

Cheers,

I don't have a webcam on my ACER Aspire M3910-2.


This model Acer does not have a built-in WEBcam.
You need to purchase an USB WEBcam and install the WEBcam driver on your Acer.

Have windows 7 on my new acer aspire 5517; trying to get external speakers (2 different kinds) to work. my generic usb speakers install and it shows they're working properly, but errors when trying to play...


what happens when you plug the speakers in the green port? You might want to try the other audio ports because on a few new computers i have seen the speakers have to be plugged in a different hole. also make sure the speakers are plugged up to the electric plug.

How can I connect external 5.1 speakers to my Acer 5920 Laptop


welll.... you can hook multiple speakers up in parallel if you wish... but it will still be stereo... just through more speakers that's all.

You will need an external sound card if you want real DD5.1 sound. An excellent choice for a laptop is the Audigy 2 ZS video editor. It's an all-in-one device.. audio in/outs, video in/outs, 5.1 sound, 4 port usb hub, firewire connect and a few more things. The neat part is that it hooks up with one simple usb cable.

USB software not installing?


USB ports on laptops are not always "powered" ports they are often "Low power" Usb ports, devices like external HDDs and webcams tend to draw too high a current to work properly on these Low power ports.

A way around this is to get a small "Powered" USB hub this is a Usb hub which has it's own plug in power supply (this is essential) you plug your devices into this and the hub into the low power USB socket. this means that the power is being drawn from the Powered hub instead of your laptop's ports.

I have come across this many times, and this small inconvenience is the only way around this.

Good luck
