My lenovo g560 laptop web cemara is not working.

Try and restore the PC to an earlier restore point- open control panel>open restore back and choose the restore point and proceed.
After this is done reinstall the webcam drivers, if the drivers seems to be corrupt you need to download them from the official website of Lenova, install and run .
If none of these work it can be a failure of the hardware, the webcam or the linking cord.
Need to cross check to confirm.

My webcam driver suddenly disappear in my laptop. i have tried a lot time to install my webcam application buy the screen show me that no found any webcam driver. may i know what happen and how i solve...

Try a system restore from the point closest to the time before the last successful use of the web cam. Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore>(enter). This will bring up a window/wizard. You may have to check the box close to the bottom left, "Show more restore points" to find the date you need. Let me know if this fails to solve your problem.

How do i set up my webcam on my laptop?

Could you be a little more specific?
Which model & operating system are you using? (windows xp?)
The webcam should come with all the required software pre-installed or if windows has been reloaded you can download the drivers from the Acer support site.
The Acer crystal eye webcams are known to be very temperamental though and can stop working for several reasons. One common solution if it was previously working is to move all the pictures out of the photo directory that they are stored in. Clearing this folder can bring the webcam back to life.

Packard bell easy note lm85 recovery management & updator software download link please


When you hit the power key also hit the F11 key keep pressing it until you get into the
recovery box

then follow on screen instructions

please back up all you files or pictures ist onto a disc or pendrive
because if you take it back to factory settings you will loose everything that you have put onto the
laptop but the bonus is that you will have a nice clean hoopefully sweet running laptop

I purcased a new hp laptop and i am not sure how to use my webcam help!

If your laptop comes in with a built in webcam then youi don't have to worry because its pre-installed. ZIf you have YM messenger try to open your cam and I'm sure it will work. If the laptop doesn't have a built in Webcam then you have to install the cd inclusive of your product.
