Hi

you could try this combination of keys to enable/disable your webcam

FN+F1 then if you use skype or msn you could then try the camera to see if it works
also take a look in device manager under imaging devices to see if it in there and no yellow question mark beside it

if it is in there and has a yellow question mark beside it then un install it and restart the laptop
and hopefully on start up windows will re install the webcam correctly for you

many thanks

Zoostorm Built In Webcam Problem


Look into the device manager to make sure the cam shows up as Imaging Device. If not go download the drivers for the webcam.
You can always download Manycam and install it. Go towww.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com"(without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When thesite opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says FindSoftware. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the whitesearch area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your resultslook for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it andinstall it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs itwould like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additionswhatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use,and you will always know where your webcam software is.

I have a new zoostorm vme50 and cant get the webcam to work. I've looked on device settings and it isnt listed, i tried Fn & Esc but nothing happened


you need to scan for new hardware and see if recognizes it if not try this
Check if driver for webcam is properly installed. You can check that by going to control panel then click on system then click device manager. The webcam should be listed in the device list if properly installed. Try to press Fn key + Esc key at the same time to enable/disable webcam.

but what i just described there kinda seemed like you did it already. if its a usb webcam. unplug it and plug it back in. also check there website for the drivers. if you did fn and esc and u turned it off then it wont show up in the device manager.

The webcam is not working


Hi. I suggest you try to press and hold the Function(Fn) button then press the Escape(Esc) button on your keyboard to enable or disable your webcam, when you press the Fn+Esc key it will show you a confirmation if your webcam is ON or OFF, after that try using it again with skype. Hope This Helps
