Open the Device Manager, Imaging Devices, is it there? Scan for hardware changes. Open Windows Updates, install all updates. Search Gateway website, select your OS 32 or 64bit: http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2373 Download driver for webcam. You may have to use the Vista driver. Change compatibility to win 7. What was the OS originally?
hi! It's quite possible that Windows 7 does not "know" your webcam, so you need to install a webcam driver. You can find all hardware drivers for your laptop here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGN-CS118E (under Camera section)
Just download and install your webcam driver (I advice to check if other device drivers are up to date too) then reboot and it should work.
As with all laptops parts are sourced from different manufacturers. Laptops had to be certified for WIN 7. Some ACERs laptop models are, but if the model wasnt certified for the WIN 7 platform they would not have developed a driver for your model. After checking ACER did NOT certify this unit as Windows 7 Compatibile due to driver incompatibilities. You can either downgrade to Windows Vista.. which will require a full reformat of drive (WIN 7 doesnt just uninstall) and reinstall from fresh VISTA.. so be sure and save your data. Or you can determine who makes the webcam in teh notebook and see if the manufacturer has a direct driver..OR FINALLY.. you could load the Vista driver and then go into the webcam software you use and right click and say run in "Windows vista" or "Windows XP" compatible mode. Be sure and keep looking at ACER to see if they state your system can go to Win 7 at a later date as sometime manufacturers will make drivers available which could change its status.
If you have had the webcam working ok with VISTA and now that you have installed XP, it is not working.
You will need to visit your device manager and look under imaging devices. ( if you can see the webcam or camera, you just need to load software to run your webcam.)
If you have any flags under imaging, remove them and also look for unknown devices, if you have anything under unknown devices, remove that. Afterward, you should go to the ACER website and download the webcam drivers for windows xp. And install it.
After all is completed, you can go to cyberlinks web site and download ucam.
Hope this helps you.
Try uninstalling the webcam restart your computer,reinstall the webcam with the single original driver WITHOUT any updates.If that does'nt fix it, the webcam may have went out or a sevice may have been turned off somehow.Sounds like the webcam went out or has become disconnected in some way or a corrupted driver.Also remember to, VISTA sucks
Hello, check your messenger's video settings to see if the setting has the default webcam. If not change it to the webcam available in your laptop. If the problem persists, then uninstall and reinstall your messenger. this would probably solve the issue.
You need to download the drivers for your webcam for windows Vista. Go here and choose your computer. In the right box, choose Acer Orbicam (logitech). That is the vista driver. Download and install it. There you go :c)
